Ingolstadt/Dortmund, 29 November 2018 – MediaMarktSaturn Germany and energy supplier Innogy are now working together. With immediate effect, MediaMarkt and Saturn are offering green electricity and gas tariffs in all their stores throughout Germany as well as in their online shops. For this new offering, MediaMarktSaturn has entered into a strategic partnership with innogy, one of Germany’s leading energy corporations. Customers opting for a new electricity or gas contract from innogy or its subsidiary eprimo benefit from an attractive offering with advantageous prices as well as easy switching to their new supplier. Moreover, there’s a bonus for each new contract signed in the form of MediaMarkt or Saturn vouchers with a value of up to €180. By entering the sale of energy products, MediaMarktSaturn is continuing the consistent expansion of its customer services. Moreover, this move underlines the strategy of increasingly offering customers integrated solutions. Together with its partner innogy, MediaMarktSaturn plans to develop additional innovative, sustainable energy services for its customers, such as e-mobility solutions and the smart control of electrical items in the home.

The new offering was initially tested in selected pilot stores. Customers have already been able to take out energy contracts with regional energy utilities in a number of stores in the past, a service which proved popular. MediaMarkt and Saturn now want to further expand this success story with a uniform, nationwide product portfolio in the gas and electricity market. It includes 12-month contracts for particularly price-conscious customers and 24-month contracts with a full price guarantee. The electricity tariffs are 100% based on green electricity from renewable energy sources. Signing up is easy and doubly worthwhile, for as well as the attractive pricing models, customers receive a MediaMarkt or Saturn voucher worth up to €150 when changing their electricity provider. Meanwhile, those switching their gas supplier can look forward to a shopping coupon with a value of up to €180.
