Refunds from your Sainsbury’s Energy account into your bank account or credit card
- Any credit balances you build up in your Customer Account will be refunded at your request, unless it is less than the minimum amount required by our bank for processing or we consider that it is fair and reasonable not to. If your credit balance is less than our bank’s minimum requirement for processing a refund on your customer account, or we retain a credit balance because we think it’s fair and reasonable to do so, we’ll keep it on your customer account and put it towards your future payments. We prefer, but do not require, you to provide us with a meter read when you request a refund so we don’t refund you too much for the energy you have used. We will always tell you the reasons why we consider it is fair and reasonable to withhold a refund in a timely way.
- If you leave us for another supplier, then we will promptly refund any credit balance after your final bill has been billed and paid.
- We will also run reports to check our customers’ credit balances from time to time. We will call you to discuss any credit over £75 and if you’d like a refund of that credit balance.
- Except in exceptional circumstances, we will always refund to the bank account or credit card that was used to pay for the purchase or registered as the preferred payment method on a customer’s account. We may also require sight of identification before we refund to a bank account or credit card that does not fit these requirements.
If you wish to arrange a refund, you will need to call our call centre on 0800 088 4127 (should be free from all mobiles and generally free from all landlines). We’re open Monday to Friday 8am – 8pm and Saturday’s 9am –1 pm (except for bank holidays).
