Make the minimum top-up £5

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.

Quite agree with the idea - where else would you have a slate where they round up to the nearest tenner?

The terms and conditions are essentially designed to keep the change if you leave (presumably usually because you have just had a poor experience) which for many is doubltess and insult added to injury at that time.

This is because when you buy a voucher you can only buy in £5 'installments' starting with £10.

For example, you can't go out and buy a £6 voucher.

If you are abroad with calls at 50p for 30 seconds, and data at £5 per MB, I would have thought that £10 was too little.

The transaction charges are the reason for the minimum topup of £10, plus you get free giffgaff-to-giffgaff calls and texts for 3 months (which doesn't help you when you are abroad).

I would have thought it should be possible to add any exact number of £ when also buying a goodybag, or to any amount over £10, instead of just £10, £15, £20 etc.

Yes this is a good one, it's going to help a lot of less well off people

Excellent idea! I was initially under the impression that I could top-up just £5, but was later disappointed when I tried, and had to manage with no credit until I had £10. I used to be on T-Mobile and one of the main reasons was because back then, they were one of the only (if not the only of) networks that allowed a £5 top-up. I know that this feature would attract new business for GG.

I think that a £5 top up would be great. My friend is sadly unemployed and £10 is a lot for him to find in one go.

I think this is a good idea for light users. Also when money is in short supply for young people, they may only have £5.
