Hokey Cokey RIP - change the name

By: rong42 | 07-03-2016 09:27

I think the name Hokey Cokey should no longer be used, following the changes announced on Friday 4 March 2016. The thread announcing the change is here:


The Hokey Cokey was born out of experimentation and giffgaff trying to be different from other networks. By removing the key feature of the Hokey Cokey, a free extra minute for every minute you are called, I think this name should be retired, and instead it should just become the '£5 goodybag'. 

This would make the goodybag in line with the naming of the rest of the goodybag range, and I think it would be more honest to see the Hokey Cokey removed. 


Mark has confirmed that giffgaff will be changing the name in this post:

good idea.



sad to see ths feature as it was such as good way for low users, or those with tight budget, to keep connected.

Hey all. This has now been implemented - since the Hokey Cokey bag, as it used to exist, is now retired we've updated the name to simply the "£5 goodybag". Maybe not the most exciting of names, but it's accurate!

Thanks for the suggestion on this and all the support given to this idea.

I have to agree with this. The name hokey cokey is no longer relevant to the £5 bag so it should be just that...£5 goodybag.
