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:

https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Announcements/Simplicity-Update/m-p/18253747

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:

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.
