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.
I think being able to top-up with just £5 is a good idea!
You can already buy a £5 goodybag so why not a £5 top-up?
I was under the impression that the argument against this was that every transaction however small has a cost to gg and accepting micro payments is more costly to gg as a proportion of revenue so would push profits down or prices up?
I agree in principle that the top up amount should be any amount - the minimum £ 10 and keep the change attitud doesn't fit with what giffgaff purports to be
This is often raised. My understanding is that this is an O2 restriction and as such there isn't anything that giffgaff can do to offer £5 credit topups.
None of the above comments mention this, but you can purchase a £5 goodybag *without* buying £10 in credit.
1. Go to www.giffgaff.com/buy/goodybag
2. select the £5 Goodybag
3. select "I only need a Goodybag"
You can then pay for the £5 Goodybag with either Giffgaff credit or a debit card.
Note that if you want to text or call internationally, you would have to have credit on your account, so in that case it would be better to top up with £10, and apply £5 of that for the goodybag.
Nice. Even though I top up £10 but it would be good to have the flexibility.
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.
