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.




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



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.

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:

I questioned this recently because my credit was quite high and yet my credit card was still being used for the goody bag.

I was very surprised that the credit is described as “airtime” credit and therefore not used for goody bags.

This idea to make the credit inclusive for the goody bags has my support. It seems a logical move to me.
can Giffgaff Look into it please ????

hmm six years and they are still looking into it!

Great idea but hellish to implement I guess, if you have enough credit recur if not then fail can not be that hard to get up and running

Would get rid of a lot of the 'woke up this morning and my credits been robbed' posts, got my vote????

The original post on this thread/idea was 6 years ago - so my guess is that giffgaff don't have any intention of implementing this, but haven't the guts to say so...

Shame, as it's an excellent suggestion, and one which I fully support

People can also have the auto top-up feature enabled to ensure they don't miss out on their goody bag :o)

The flexibility makes sense. Thanks for suggesting this idea.

Seems a very good idea to me. I would use the option if credit there.
