Just Energy Launches First Joint Marketing Partnership

Company Joins Forces with BBVA’s Tuyyo to Bring More Value to Customers


October 10, 2018 - Houston, TX

Just Energy, through its Amigo Energy brand, has announced a partnership with BBVA’s Tuyyo, a global, mobile money transfer service. The partnership represents Just Energy’s first joint marketing collaboration.

The promotion enables Amigo Energy customers to receive a $100 bill credit when using the Tuyyo app. Tuyyo customers that switch to Amigo Energy gain eligibility for a $100 bill credit on their electricity bill.

“Joint Marketing partnerships enable us to partner with other companies that can leverage our products and services across their customer base,” says Morgan Smith, Just Energy’s Chief Sales Officer. “We look to brands whose offerings complement our own and, together, add value for customers. These collaborations further build on our own brand equity by connecting Just Energy to reliable, established names that consumers can trust.”

As Tuyyo Global Head, Ignacio de Loyola Gil, explained, “the new partnership with Amigo is consistent with the Tuyyo brand main purpose – connecting people to send money from the US to Mexico as if there were no boundaries, with a social commitment of helping the Mexican community in both parts of the corridor.”

With the Tuyyo app, users in the US can easily and conveniently transfer money to friends and family in Mexico. Tuyyo enables users to send funds up to $1,000*, with no fee transfer**. Beneficiaries can receive funds quickly via various retrieval methods -24/7- using the largest pickup network in Mexico.  In addition to the no fee transfer benefit, the service further minimizes the related costs typically associated with the receipt of funds with competitive exchange rate.

In the coming months, Just Energy looks forward to launching additional partners which will expand the company’s distribution network and extend its customer reach. These partnerships are a win all around as affiliate companies share access to customers and exclusive promotions, while consumers gain access to more products and services at reduced cost.
