Some Partners (including SSE Energy Supply Limited) will require you to make a successful application,which is subject to their terms and conditions before confirming it as an “Approved Transaction” qualifying for an Ice reward.
2.3. Approved Transactions are only those transactions that are tracked between us and the Partner, and made in accordance with these Rules, the terms of any Partners promotion and any other terms and conditions applicable. The Approved Transaction must be confirmed by the Partner as no longer capable of being cancelled by, credited to and/or refunded to you, whether in whole or in part.

In the event that you completed an Approved Transaction in full compliance with all associated conditions and Ice points are not showing or pending on your Ice account then in order to resolve this issue you must report a query of ‘missing transaction’.
