Walk to be in to win free power for July
Terms and Conditions

Here’s your chance to Win Wonderful with Mercury! We’ve put together the following terms and conditions which you’ll need to agree to by entering our ‘Walk to win free power for July promotion (the “Promotion”):

The Prize.
  1. Five lucky customers will each receive free power for the month of July 2020.

  2. If you are a winner, you will receive a bill credit, which we will apply to your Mercury residential account before 31 August 2020. The value of this bill credit will be the amount you were charged for your power usage between 1 and 31 July 2020. Depending on your billing cycle, this credit may not show until your September 2020 bill is issued. The credit will only apply to electricity charges (including your daily fixed charge, variable usage charges, GST and the Electricity Authority levy) and excludes all gas charges.

  3. The prize is not transferable or redeemable for cash.

  3. You can enter the Promotion multiple times. Each time you successfully complete a ‘Walk to win free power in July’ step challenge within the Promotion Period, you’ll get one entry in the draw.

  4. You’ll need to remain a Mercury customer until 31 August 2020 to have the credit applied to your account.

  5. We want this Promotion to be fair for everyone, so if any entries are incomplete, illegible, ‘hacked’ or look fraudulent, then we may not be able to accept your entry into the Promotion.

  3. If a winner cannot be contacted by the promoter within 7 days of the prize draw, Mercury may choose to redraw another winner.
