my TXU Energy cash back prepaid Visa gift card. Earn cash back on my electricity bill? Why, sure. I love free money! I started dreaming of the ways I could spend it and settled on putting it toward our couch fund. I love how TXU Energy is helping me get one step closer to a comfortable sofa.

TXU Energy is celebrating 5 years of giving their customers cash back through the TXU Energy Cash Back Loyalty Reward program. Participating customers earn up to 3% or more cash back on their annual electricity purchases, in the form of a Visa prepaid card. As of this year’s distribution, TXU Energy has given more than $100 million back to their customers in cash back. This year, alone, they have sent hundreds of thousands of customers a total of more than $36 million. That’s a lot of dough!

So just how are Texans spending their cash back? Check out the image below and you’ll see how people are putting their cash back to good use (click on photo for a larger view).
