Payback can be saved up to buy a phone

Another additional option for payback which would be "saving for phone" so that giffgaff users who have earnt payback could save it to buy a phone from the site. This would be a good way for giffgaff to sell more phones and encourage more members to buy it from this site. Some people may say they can already do this by taking the payback as cash, but having this additional option would mean giffgaff would have less money to process on payback times and also would allow users to save up towards their phones.

Should be able to have a 4th option for payback - use to pay towards a mobile phone.

This is an excellent idea.

If this idea was to go ahead, another idea which should be considered is, a discount for recommending others to use this option when buying a new phone maybe.

Nice 1 to Misha_786 though for suggesting the idea of saving up payback to buy a phone, extra credit should be given !!

It would need to have a discount on the price to encourage people to buy a phone rather than take it as cash

Good idea - supported!

I would add a further stipulation that the expiry regarding taking payback options should be suspended if you are saving for a phone.

This means that you would not have to worry about setting your paypal email, and giffgaff get to hold onto your payback (therefore earning them interest on your payback), and they will have the guarantee that you will be ploughing your payback back to giffgaff (so howabout a discount for those that save this way?)

I thought that you could do this already and was surprised to see that it wasn't an option when buying a phone. I now take my payback as cash for that reason, so I can use it to buy new phones when I want.
