Abolish the <5min/MB limit for early Goodybag purchase

With reservations, I welcome the recently introduced early Goodybag purchase facility.

BUT! Why on earth should I be FORCED to wait until either the minutes or the data is almost totally used up. If I choose to purchase a new GB early and accept total forfeit of the existing one, then surely I should be allowed to do this at any time I choose! It's entirely my loss, if I decide to discard my existing bag in favour of an early new one surely?

For instance, supposing I'm usually a very low usage user and am just a week into a Hokey Cokey (£5) bag. Then something totally unforeseen suddenly changes in my personal circumstances. I realise I'm gonna need lots more minutes, texts and/or data. I want to now start a new £18 bag so that I can ensure I have lots more allowance available for the next month.

I'm going to be very busy and don't want the hassle of having to watch my remaining usage like a hawk until it finally lets me buy my desired bigger bag. Heck I could use up that last 5 minutes in just a single long call! I want to buy a big bag immediately so I can then relax and continue with peace of mind that a big bag gives me. I understand that all remaining service on my existing bag will be totally forfeited, as the system clearly warns me about this in no uncertain terms at the point of purchase.

My proposal here is to completely remove the remaining usage thresholds for early Goodybag re-purchase. I am intelligent enough to decide if I want to upgrade or renew my existing Goodybag at any time I so choose, with immediate effect.

If you agree please kudos this proposal in the upper left corner.

Thank you.

I agree whole heartedly. There are sometimes when you need to upgrade your goody bag before the existing one is finished. Hopefully we are all grown up enough to realize that the loss of the remaining part of the goody bag versus less stress can makes sense.

Agree - supported the previous idea in 2015 - here's a copy of the comment I made then

"I am supporting this idea as well as the 10 minute re-purchase trigger I suggested.  I agree it would be more helpful if customers could decide whether/when to junk the rest of their goodybags if an early re-purchase would help - I had just such a scenario when a relative was taken ill suddenly and I needed to call his mobile daily."
