Hi, this is a little idea.
The minimum top up is £10 so maybe giffgaff should let us top up £5. I'm a light user and don't need much of anything. So being able to top up £5 would be nice.
Yes this would be great idea! 1+
For info only but I've just signed up to a pay monthly sim on a 30 day rolling contract and I get 1.5gb Data, 2000 Minutes and unlimited Texts, all for a paltry £6.00 per calendar month. The provider is a reputable company (not Three) and I think the network it piggy backs is EE. So come on GG, if other companies can provide a decent allowance for less than £10 then why should GG members be persuaded to stay with you when you can't lower the top up level to £5.00 per month? Isn't your lowest goody bag £5.00 anyway?? Think about it!!
This would suit me wonderfully.
I agree this would be great if it came in to action
Yes I think its a good idea
I agree great idea
Is a good idea most networks allow a 5 top up and you can get 200 minutes and 250 and 1gb data on two network providers
I don't want to leave.
Good idea =}
High five mate lol
In full agreement. I top up maybe twice a year so I can only take advantage of the free giffgaff to giffgaff calls for 3months at a time. But having a £5 option makes perfect sense.
and i do
Yes I agree you don't always need a full £10
I agree totally
Yh I agree bring it down to a £5 top-up
Would be a great idea for my twins. I'm only on your £5/month package, us light users are penalised by having to top up by £10 minimum.
Come on GiffGaff, have another think about this one. Even with a Goodybag you still need some airtime credit for things like MMS. You can by a £5 Goodybag but not a £5 top up.
I agree if you can get a £5 goody bag, why not a £5 top up?
U can purchase the £5 Goodybag with your payment card paying just £5. So why they say you must pay minimum £10 top-up is a mystery to me???
All you do is purchase goodybag and pay with your card.
what does not for us mean?
Means they aren't implementing it
Please reconsider, GG: this would be of benefit to many of your customers - including those who receive their payback as airtime credit and then only need to top up an additional small amount in order to purchase a goodybag from their airtime balance
I very much agree. I'm new to giffgaff and had a bit of a shock when I saw that the minimum top up started at £10! I'm a light user myself with a rolling £5 goody bag and just needed the freedom of sending the occasional picture by text or text a few family numbers abroad.
Before moving to Virgin mobile for 24 months because they had just the right iPhone 5SE model that I wanted, I was with O2 for over 15 years and MMSs were all part of the Pay and Go deal but the cheapest option started at £10. Virgin mobile, on the other hand, offered pay as you go deals for £5 but I couldn't event text a sticker!
While I'm very grateful for the flexibility provided by giffgaff of goody bags for less than £10 and top up options to complement them, I think there should be a top up light version for light users.
Keep voting this could happen
the option for a minimum £5 credit top up is an absolute A+
no-brainer!, ( just look at all of the other comments to this
DEFINITELY think a £5 Credit top up should available - ASAP! The
Pros by far outweigh any Cons.
you please explain (GG / Not for us peeps),
how, on the one hand say you welcome / respect / consider (and then
maybe will implement your new or existing, and not forgetting your
prospective ( massive new lucrative market there! ) customers'
opinions / ideas...
one of the best ideas / contributions I've seen from saadiyahkto
suggests "Make the minimum top-up £5" is completely
can we have an explanation as to why this perfect suggestion made
almost 4 years ago is / was "not for you" ?
clearly myself and many other GG'rs can give you many reasons why it
should be - I'll give you a very brief one (phew, soz folks): In this Uber-tech age of smartwatches , phablets , trackers , pedometers , drones and droids etc,
there are a plethora of devices ( low - high in value ), and with
this comes the need for many of your customers to have multiple
accounts, ranging from a low income parent wanting to track their
child (safety) to the many thousands of people who have a second
phone or device to be used for emergencies or a specific purpose.
bet my bottom dollar that in such a competitive pay as you go sim
only market that if you green lighted this excellent suggestion, then
both your profits and customer base would actually increase...only
trying to share the love ; ) - peace from me xx
My Mum won't change to GG just because of this
Yep u ned to tell us y this idea is not for u GG
Great idea. Hope it happens soon.
Many moons ago, I requested official clarification re the £5 top up, in all sincerety and good faith (More Fool Me)- I can see that I’m not alone - just look at comments around that post.
However, in light of today’s 02 issues, piggy backed by GG of course, for myself (a long serving/paying/phone purchasing GG consumer,enough is finally enough?????? - It’s a crying shame for so many of us in the contrived “GG family” ( Which, in light of today’s network issues, complete lack of clarity & communication from GG official staff that this “Caring Sharing” facade has finally been outed for the faceless corporate money grabbers that our gg family are - IMHO GG’s customer services are complete & utter BS!)
So thanks for the memories & lack of response in our times of need & distress - methinks it’s time to go to a provider that does actually: 1) Reply & 2) Give a flying f for their customers-“ - Nuff Said - Peace????????????
