Allow goodybags to recur from credit

By: ski_31 | 25-04-2014 19:50

Hi all :smileyvery-happy:

 

I did some searching to see if this idea has been submitted before and I couldn't find anything. Please forgive me if my searching wasn't thorough enough and there has been this idea before.

 

The idea

 

 The recurring goodybag feature is great because it gives people a feeling that you would have with a contract - without the boundaries. However, you can only recur a goodybag from a credit/debit card and I (and I'm sure many others) think that it's time to allow goodybags to recur from airtime credit.

 

Implementation

 

This shouldn't be hard to implement is there anything that I have missed that makes this not possible?

 

Benefits

Here are some benefits of this idea being implemented:

  • Some people (like myself) will never use a credit/debit card on giffgaff for different reasons and to have the possibility of having a goodybag recur from airtime credit will make the usage of goodybag bundles so much easier.
  • People will get a real good feeling of being able to directly use their payback points that they worked hard to earn over the course of the 6 month period as money for goodybags.
  • It will save people the trouble of logging into their giffgaff account monthly just to activate a goodybag that is the same every time.

Hope you like this idea and if you do please kudos and comment to support. I know that a lot of you don't use airtime credit for goodybags but this is honestly something that is missing from giffgaff and really needs to be implemented.

 

COME ON GIFFGAFF LET US RECUR GOODYBAGS FROM AIRTIME CREDIT! :robotvery-happy:

 

Cheers,

Sami :smileyhappy:

 

Edit: Including one of  my comments below in the idea post because I think it is a valid thing to put in:

Not really @hasan249 the recurring goodybag feature is great many people use it and it is of course optional :smileyhappy:

 

If goodybags can be recurred from credit/debit card payment then they should be able to be recurred from airtime credit, I am honestly quite surprised that this is not a possibility at the moment and if there is a valid reason why this cannot happen then I would like to be educated about it :smileyhappy:

 

Of course if there is not enough credit left to purchase another goodybag in the month that follows then a goodybag won't be purchased, and maybe giffgaff can send a reminder to people to top-up if their balance is low so they can continue to enjoy the bundle in giffgaff goodybags :smileyhappy:

would be good if we could buy goody bags with a combination of credit/Paypal or bank too. I don’t always have the full amount in my credit to buy the goodybag I want or need!

it needs changing to be more efficiencet so just buy the goodybag without going through all the options whn you call to top up

This is so obviously a good idea...

I am wondering why it is STILL being looked into.

My only variation would be:-

Let me set a variable :

If my air time credit is above X, please debit my air time credit to recur goody bag.

A great idea should have been implemented years ago

not sure if this can be implemented as well , they send out sim cards in a set of either 1 or 3 so can they not include a giffgaff top up card linked to the sim , at least this way people can top up as and when they have money instead of sharing credit card details on a website even though its encrypted, some people don't have a debit card , ie by dad is 79 he is on giffgaff but has to use my credit card to top up , you can buy a voucher so include a top up card
