giffgaff new phone saving pot.

By: marc_ccc | 25-03-2014 06:25

i think it would be great if you had a top up plan that included part payment into a pot, ie lets say you got a £12 goody bag, but you topped up £15,  there is £3 spare, which you could nominnate to go into a pot, and as time goes by, this pot would grow, and thus lettinng you put it towards the cost of a new phone from giffgaff. it would be an incentive to all pay as you go customers wanting a nice new shiny phone. sorry as i am new to all this, but a kind member has gave me some insite as to how it works, the more kudos i get , counts for more votes and the idea may be taken onboard, so if you like the idea, vote with a kudos,, many thanks 

PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE VIA GIVING KUDOS, ITS FREE, AND IF YOU LIKE THE IDEA THE MORE VOTES WITH KUDOS THE BETTER CHANCE IT WILL GET IMPLIMENTED , SO GO ON VOTE WITH KUDOS,, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT,,:smileyhappy:

This would constitute giffgaff acting as a bank for which it would need to be authorised and regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority.

Not very practible as it would involve giffgaff and ratesetters neither of whom I would think it workable.

I think this would be good but what happens if you lose your sim card - somebody has a massive amount of money to use up on your account - also, what happens if giffgaff goes bust.

 

Personally, I think saving the money in an account that you can access in a bank etc is safer.

People need to be responsible and save money in their PayPal, bank account, etc.

giffgaff is not a bank - holding money for customers may have banking regulation implications
