The Gexa BOGO Plan offers 50% off your energy charges. BOGO stands for buy one get one. Buy one kWh, get one free means! The Gexa BOGO plan is promoted on billboards, on the TV and on the radio.
The question is, is it the plan for you?
In this section you’ll find a Gexa BOGO review. We’ll also review Gexa’s other electricity plans. And we’ll tell you how to compare Gexa BOGO plan against other Gexa plans, and plans from other companies.
About the Gexa BOGO Plan
For many years, Gexa stayed away from free electricity plans. While TXU, Reliant and Direct Energy promoted free weekends and free nights, Gexa put their own spin on it. They offered EveryDay | EveryNight pricing, with the same price for all hours of the day (essentially, rebranding their fixed rate plan).
Gexa started offering a unique free electricity plan in 2018, called the Gexa BOGO Plan. It’s buy one, get one. And that means you only pay for 50% of your energy charges, every month. For example, if you use 1,000 kWh in energy charges, you’ll only pay for 500 kWh.
The 50% discount on energy charges only applies to the energy charge per kilowatt hour. You will pay for 100% of your electricity delivery fees.
Is the Gexa BOGO Plan Right for Me?
We always emphasize how important it is to (1) understand your usage, and (2) read the Electricity Facts Label. The Gexa BOGO Plan is no different.
The Gexa BOGO Plan is best for customers in larger homes, using 1000 kWh or more per month.
And here’s why — there’s a monthly service fee or minimum use fee of $9.95 in any month where you use less than 999 kWh. When you take that into account, you can see that the rate per kWh is lower for higher usage. If you consistently use over 1000 kWh every month at your home, the Gexa BOGO Plan may be for you.

How Does Gexa BOGO Plan Compare to Other Gexa Plans?
The Gexa BOGO Plan is a great option if you want free electricity. But, one of their other plans may be a better fit for you.
Here’s a comparison of the price per kWh of the Gexa BOGO 24 Plan, vs. Gexa’s Saver Premium 24 Plan.
The Gexa BOGO Plan has a $9.95 fee if you use under 999 kWh, making it expensive if you use under 1000 kWh a month. The Saver Premium plan offers a $100 bill credit when your usage is 2000 kWh a month or higher.
As you can see in this analysis, the Gexa Saver Premium 24 plan is the way to go if you use under 1000 kWh a month.
The BOGO plan is better if you use 1000 to 1999 kWh a month.
And the Saver Premium plan is the better deal if you use 2000+kWh a month.

How to Compare Gexa BOGO Plan vs. Plans from Other REPs
Like we said above, the two most important things to know when shopping for electricity are:
- Know your usage
- Read the Electricity Facts Label.
Here’s why that’s important.
Know Your Usage. It’s important to know your usage because it impacts your effective rate. Your usage will be different month to month. And when folks guess their usage, they usually under or over estimate it. We recommend that you go online to your current account and download your usage history.
Read the Electricity Facts Label. Once you know your usage, shopping is easy. You just need to review the Electricity Facts Label (EFL). The EFL will show you the average price at three usage levels — 500, 1000 and 2000 kWh. Always review the EFL details for the plan you are considering.
