Reliant Customer Referral Program Rewards Both Current and New Texas Customers

  Reliant Customer Referral Program Rewards Both Current and New Texas   Customers            – No Limits to the Number of Rewards Customers Can Earn –  Business Wire  HOUSTON -- January 15, 2014  Refer a friend and rake in the rewards. When current Reliant customers refer friends and family to Reliant through the Customer Referral Program, both sides receive a $50 Reliant Thank You Card to apply toward a Reliant bill. It’s a win-win.  The program works in three easy steps:  1. A customer provides his or her referral ID to a family member or friend through the easiest method, i.e., phone call, text, email or referral card.  2. When that individual calls 1-866-RELIANT or visits www.reliant.com/friend50 and uses the referral ID to enroll in a term plan with Reliant, both parties each receive a $50 Reliant Thank You Card to apply toward a future Reliant bill.  3. Keep referring! There are no limits to the number of Reliant Thank You Cards someone can earn.  The residential electricity service must be active for three days before eligibility kicks in, and the Reliant Thank You Card will be mailed within four to six weeks  “At Reliant, we don’t take a single customer or recommendation for granted,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president of Reliant. “By rewarding both sides in a referral, we want everyone to feel welcomed and appreciated in the Reliant family.”  Over the last four years, Reliant has consistently achieved the Public Utility Commission of Texas’ “Lowest Complaint Rate” designation on the Power to Choose website, which measures the number of complaints per 1,000 customers on a rolling six month average.
