The suggestion is that we increase the DD by £35 a month from £65 to £100 when we only have small 1 bed flat (dual fuel), and the DD was actually set too high a few months ago so it suggested reducing it from £70 which I did.
There is no way we will use that amount, and we are always in credit and have a credit balanace, and submit meter readings every month. The recommended DD is ridiculously high.
I can't help feeling that this makes it (deliberately) impossible for us to meet the condtions to receive the online reward. Which will mean paying another £60 a year.
And now if I contact OVO, I will definitely lose the discount.
I am really unhappy with what is going on here. Is anyone else in the same boat?

Not good to hear about your dissatisfaction
If you think the calculations for the Direct Debit amount are wrong, this will be a legitimate reason to reach out to the Customer Care team for help. So you wouldn't lose any discount.
First have a look at this link which explains the calculations, just so you're sure there's been an error: https://www.ovoenergy.com/help/direct-debit-review
