Give your friends green energy and lower bills

And an extra $50 in both of your pockets. Really. When your friend joins Bulb using your unique referral link, you’ll each get $50 after they pay their first bill. We send an email with your referral link right after you join Bulb.

Can’t find your referral link? Use this handy form to request a reminder and we’ll send you an email with all the important bits. You can also use the form to directly email your friends your referral link.

You can refer as many people as you like and convincing them should be easy, but here are a few of our favorite reasons:

We’ll credit your account

After you pay your first bill, we’ll add a credit to your Bulb account with your referral reward. Just like that.

No annual contract

There are no fixed contracts with Bulb so you’re never tied down and you can leave anytime without being charged cancellation fees.

We refund cancellation fees

If you’re switching, we’ll tell your old provider and refund up to $100 if they charge you to leave.

No hidden fees

The rate you see includes delivery charges and our energy charges, but doesn’t include tax. No hidden fees. No smoke and mirrors.

Double referrals

Every now and then, like a pink supermoon, we offer double referral rewards. During these special times, you and your friends will each earn $100 when they sign up using your unique referral link. Keep your eyes peeled for double referrals for the chance to split $200 with your besties.

How to start referring

If you’re a Bulb member, you can start referring right now. Here’s how.

  • Share your referral link with friends
  • If someone signs up to Bulb using your link, you’ll get a confirmation email so you know who joined. Your friend will also get an email which will have their brand new referral link.
  • After your friend pays their first bill, you’ll both receive $50. You’ll receive this reward as an account credit. And yes, we’ll send you a celebratory confirmation email whenever this happens.

How to use social media to refer friends

You can always share your link by text or email, for example:

Friends and fam — I just started getting cheap renewable energy from Bulb. Join Bulb using my link and make $50 just for signing up. Bulb has no annual contract or hidden fees, plus they’ll refund up to $100 in cancellation fees if your current provider charges you for leaving. Use my link to get $50 when you sign up: [insert referral link here]

You can also share on social media and look profesh. See examples below:

Sharing on Instagram

You can now add GIFs to your Instagram stories to make them stand out.

Here’s how:

  • Add a story
  • Head to stickers
  • Search Giphy for “bulbtx”
  • Choose your favorite sticker
  • Share your story, sit back and wait for the referrals to roll in

We’ve also made a few templates you can save and share on social media. We made two square ones and two portrait ones (below). Don’t forget to add your link to the pink ones when you post:

Sharing is caring

By referring friends to Bulb, you’ll help them save money and help everyone lower their carbon impact. Each of our members lowers their carbon impact by 8.42 tons a year. Or about the weight of 9 longhorns. Or 2 F-150s. You can also earn a lot of money. Some of our members have completely offset their energy bills through referrals. Really.
