Relationships are a complicated thing aren’t they? On an average day I hate my Mum at least 3 times, and my brother somewhat more, but I also find myself spouting how much I love them every day. That’s just weird. Relationships with friends are even more confusing. 8 year old girls are fickle creatures; one day they want to be in your club, and the next they won’t speak to you. What’s that all about?
I’m learning that it’s probably best to cultivate a wide group of friends, with different interests. What works well about this is that when the group who enjoy art club aren’t up for it today, I can go and dip into a game with the Harry Potter fans. And if all else fails, there’s always football with the boys.
There are one or two friends though, who are pretty constant, no matter what playground bickering goes on. Those are the friends who really get you, who laugh off your idiosyncracies and still invite you round for tea after a ruck. The friends who stand up for you on a bad day, and who you’re genuinely happy for when they get the part in the school play that you wanted. Loyal friends.
It’s the same with parents apparently. Friends come and go, but there are a few who – despite changes in geography and circumstance – are always there when they’re needed or wanted. The friends that really count, and whose advice you take.
So what does this have to do with an energy supplier? Bear with me, it’s good. Energy suppliers like to keep their customers. E.ON believes you should get something back for your loyalty. If you’ve been with them for a year or more, they’d like to say thank you. That’s why they’re giving rewards to their customers. You could either get money off your bills or Tesco Clubcard points – it’s up to you (exclusions apply). All you need to do is change to one of E.ON’s tariffs with rewards.
But here’s the really cool thing: E.ON are also giving you the chance to reward someone close to you. If you have a friend who’s been with you through thick and thin, or who has just done something nice for you recently, you should be able to thank them with a treat. So, they’re giving away 4 fabulous experience days for two plus 70 pairs of cinema tickets.
You can enter the competition using the dedicated Facebook app and nominate a friend to win a prize through the comment box. You’ll need to “like” the E.ON Energy UK page.
