Happy Birthday to Bounce!

And Happy Cinco de Mayo as well! Today marks the 4-Year Anniversary of the day Bounce Energy started serving electricity and began providing electricity to the deregulated areas of Texas. In those 4 years, we have become one of the fastest-growing retail electric providers in the nation, and we’re the most “liked” electricity company on Facebook. Moreover, after starting around a simple kitchen table in the home of our CEO, we’ve grown from simply providing great rates for energy to offering fantastic rewards programs, access to a wide range of products for your home or apartment, and excellent customer service.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we have been offering new customers who pay their first 3 consecutive bills on-time either a $25 Bill Credit or a $25 Gift card to Amazon, Visa, or Wal-Mart.

All of this is to thank our wonderful customers for growing with us and sharing Bounce Energy with their friends over the past 4 years. Many of you connect your friends to Bounce using your unique Refer-A-Friend code. Others of you communicate with us often on Facebook, while even more of you chat with us on Twitter and re-pin us on Pinterest. Suffice to say, we would not be changing the way that Texans interact with their energy company without each and every one of our amazing customers.

Furthermore, we want to wish everyone a wonderful Cinco de Mayo! Having turned into a rather well-celebrated holiday in many parts of the United States, many people incorrectly assume that the 5th of May is Mexican Independence Day. Actually, this day celebrates the victory of an over-matched Mexican Army over the French Army in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Yet, while this battle did not end Mexico’s war with France (a war which France won in 1864), it did effectively end French involvement in the American Civil War, as the country had been providing provisions, supplies, and support to the Confederacy. The true Mexican Independence Day is September 16, 1810 when Father Miguel Hidalgo issued “The Grito de Dolores.”

In short, Cinco de Mayo will always hold a special place in the heart of Bounce Energy – think of it as a victory for everyone over the oppression of foreign armies and high energy prices in Texas! Happy Birthday to us!
