Use airtime Credit to pay for a Phone

By: lpwilliams | 28-08-2015 11:41

I would like to suggest that giffgaff consider the option of allowing members to use their airtime credit to buy a phone from giffgaff (or make a partial payment from their airtime credit balance)

Some people may not have PayPal accounts and may not be able to take their payback in this way and may prefer to take their payback as airtime credit if they could then use the credit to pay for a giffgaff phone.

Not sure how practical this is or whether it has been suggested before but I did a search for "buy phone from airtime credit" and came up with nothing.

That makes sense. It would be good to have such purchase option.

there HAVE been various similar suggestions over the years, but so far giffgaff have resisted the suggestion to allow other expenditure from Airtime Credit. You MAY buy a Goodybag from Airtime Credit (either online or via the topup line: 43430, option 2, choose ‘balance’), but no other uses are currently possible. Cannot transfer between accounts, cannot recur Goodybag, cannot Buy gifts. The one thing else you CAN do is donate to charity where texts are supported, and, unfortunately, certain premium text scams have managed to take money, although many complaints have been made against the practice.

I had voted for another similar idea but saw your dad's comment about this idea. I noted that this idea was posted before the other idea so I have voted for yours too.
