Bargainbag - Bag of credit at special rates

By: bertiebat | 05-03-2014 22:17

Special type of goodybag that contains an up front £5 worth of special PAYG credit with reduced rates instead of having a fixed bundle of data, text and calls.


With these special PAYG bargain rates as an initial suggestion (edited 23/09/17) though these rates would need to reviewed in line with other goodybag allowances changes as and when they happen.

  • Calls:  2p per min   
  • Text:   0.5 per text/SMS
  • Data   1p per Mb

I'd also like to consider charging MMS at a lower rate.and the possibily of giving some addtional special prices for some other PAYG charges if possible thought this might overly complicate the idea and I have since edited those options out.

This would fit a niche where people at the lower end needs don't fit into the existing goodybag offerings and tend to use PAYG (but keep a very careful eye on use, especially where data is concerned) or some who occasionally buy a goodybag but can't get the allowances that really fits their needs without having to separately use additional airtime credit.   This would be especially attractive to those that mostly use calls and some texts but little or no data as the exsiting goodybags are very much data biased.

For instance MMS, special numbers (0845, 0870 etc) international calls and roaming charges aren't included in any goodybag and require the additional use of normal airtime credit.    With this bargainbag the included credit can be used for those services.

I see this idea as a viable alternative to the frequently requested personalised goodybags, call and text only , call only goodybags idea and International add ons.

So over to you to tell me what you think and as always comments and support welcomed :smileyhappy:

I think that time and Giffgaff's pricing has moved on to make this less required than six years ago.

Perhaps an international goodybag could take its place?
