Gexa Energy 10,000 United MileagePlus Points Bonus — plus earn 7x!

While I’d recommend staying clear of any EnergyPlus offers often advertised by American Airlines (we had a bad experience with rates jumping 2-3x very quickly), I’ve been extremely pleased with the service and price from Gexa for the last 2 years. My family’s chosen the renewable energy option which is only fractionally more per kWh — perhaps as a subconscious effort to offset the carbon from all this jetting around?. ;)

Earn 5,000 MileagePlus® bonus award miles when you switch your electricity provider to Gexa Energy by November 30, 2012. You’ll earn 5,000 additional bonus miles after six months of service. Plus, earn 2 miles for each dollar you spend on your monthly energy charge.

You can also call 866-586-4943 to enroll. Use promotion code UATENK when enrolling.

Be sure to understand the rate structure and how long you’re tied in, but generally you’re free to move to a new provider thanks to deregulation in the state of Texas. Electricity is a commodity…so don’t be afraid to be price-sensitive! Switching is free and easy. I’d conservatively value 10k united miles at $200 but we’ve extracted as much as $2,000 worth of value from the same number of points on a business class flight. Not a bad way to supplement your stash.

Schedule your payments with a Chase United MileagePlus card or, better yet, your prepaid Amex loaded with Vanilla Reloads purchased at Office Depot with your Ink card to pile on even more MP bonus points up to 7x! (2x Gexa bonus, 5x Ink bonus on reload!). If your monthly bill averages $200, that’s 16,800 points a year just for paying your electric bill!

One additional thing I like about Gexa is the ability to carry a positive balance on your account — I’ve often loaded up an extra $200-300 if I have minimum spending to meet on a card I’m sure there’s an argument to made about the fractional interest lost but, hey, I’d rather meet a minimum spend than eek out .001%!

    We’ve had he a for years and are up for renewal on our yearly plan… I wonder I’d they’d give us the 10k for not switching?

    • The T’s and C’s mention “new” customers but perhaps there’s an argument for signing up for a new agreement. There’s also the option of elevating it to a supervisor for consideration if you don’t get the answer you’re looking for — they could tailor something for you. In my experience they have several offers that may not be widely publicized.

      Terms and conditions:
      This offer is only valid through November 30, 2012, at 11:59 p.m. CT for new Gexa customers.

      By choosing Gexa Airline Rewards as a MileagePlus member, you earn two (2) MileagePlus miles for every dollar spent on Gexa Energy commodity charges every month.

      The Energy Charge charged by Gexa Energy on the fixed–rate plans is fixed and will not change during the initial term of your plan.
