Ask any person for their bucket list and it’s virtually guaranteed to include one common bullet point: Travel more. After all, it’s only human to want to explore the world around us. But much like most bucket list items, travel can get pushed to the bottom of the list year after year.

No more putting it off, adventure-seekers—now there is a way to use your energy consumption (and air miles) to see the world. All you have to do is pay your monthly energy bill.

NRG is making your wander-lusting dreams come true. The Philadelphia-based retail competitive energy provider offers residential customers a variety of reward plans that help you travel more. Whether you’re traveling by plane, train or automobile, NRG’s travel rewards are ready to help you power your home and accumulate the miles or points you need to finally book that trip.

Every $1 you spend on the supply portion of your monthly energy bill turns into two (yes, TWO) miles or points toward your next trip with American Airlines, Amtrak, JetBlue, Southwest and United Airlines. Plus, just for signing up you’ll earn 10,000 miles or points with airlines, 10,000 rewards points with Amtrak and a $75 enrollment bonus with AAA Mid-Atlantic—more than enough to get a jumpstart on planning where you’ll visit first. *

Once you arrive at your destination, NRG has you covered as well, with rewards you can use toward your stay at Hilton and Marriott hotels. You’ll earn 10,000 points by signing up, then an additional two points for every $1 you spend on your electric supply bill.

What’s more, if you choose NRG to supply your natural gas this winter, you’ll score two miles on every $1 you spend on your gas supply bill as well. *

Ready to switch but worried you could lose power in the process? Fear not! There’s no fee or interruption in service for switching to NRG. Your local utility will continue to respond to any emergencies and deliver your electricity.

You have options—why not choose the one that lets you travel the world? For more information on NRG, visit picknrg.com.

*Electricity and natural gas bonus points awarded after two months of active service. You must be a customer for 12 months to be awarded per-dollar points. View other terms and conditions at picknrg.com
