£16 Top Up for a £10 Goody bag....

By: laurencebond | 27-09-2019 06:03

This is a brilliant idea and means you'll always be in credit and what ever Goodybag you choose you'll never run out of minutes or data because if you do the giffgaff system will automatically charge you from your credit balance. Pretty good eh! What ever Goody bag you choose the price you pay for it should be 60% higher than the actual cost so that you're always in credit. So if you buy say a £10 Goodybag you pay £16 for it and have £4 in credit on your balance so you'll never get caught short.

giffgaff logic...

I suspect this would increase confusion rather than be helpful.

There is sufficient info on credit and goodybags in the relevant sections here...

?You are all 100%correct! I suggested a "Minimum top up" in Labs to the same value as the smallest Goodybag which is currently £6 and giffgaff instantly rejected it as "not for us". Yet... Customers who buy a £6 Goodybag are charged 60% more than other users by default. This is, as you have pointed out "not fare, confusing, some customers may not have the extra money". Some of you have clearly stated its 'ridiculous' and giffgaff is about 'flexibility' and 'why have this forced on you?'. Others that this just 'makes no sense'... Yet giffgaff does this all the time every day to every customer that buys a £6 Goodybag. Isn't strange how things are crystal clear when the argument is reversed and things are forced upon you. giffgaff... You need to stop overcharging the poorer customers and those who buy £6 Goodybags. These customer are not given the choice and have to come up with 60% more cash than the actual value of the product they are buying. And just so you know... I've never ever bought a £6 Goodybag... ever, so I have no vested interest in pushing this. Laurence Bond. If I could post this on forums I would but the new system doesn't upload correctly to do so on 'old' devices. There is no option to 'upload' a question or subject.

you can buy the £6 goodybag using a credit or debit card and pay exactly £6. with GG minimum top us is £10 via voucher so people have to top up by this much to buy any goodyag costing less than £10.

Definitely would confuse customers, it's already complicated enough to use giff gaff and its procedures and workings of the network. A simple free phone number to call customer services instead of messaging community agents etc... That would simplify things ten fold

It's certainly increased my confusion. I just can't see the point of this idea.

Please don't post pointless comments. The idea itself is nonsense enough!

not for me hard to understand i buy £6 goody bag and don't want to pay more. i buy credit when I want it so, so why would I want it sitting in an account till when..plus you say 10 pounds pay £16 4 goes to credit where does the other 2 pound go.

Precisely and well done on posting an genuine comment. The author themselves has pointed out that this idea wasn't to be taken seriously.

I don't support this idea. Users have the option to add credit anytime they want to. Increasing the base price will make GG appear uncompetitive compared to other providers.

Nice! Should be implemented for all the spammers who replied with 'Excellent', 'good idea', etc. All the extra £2s could pay for a free satire awareness course for the terminally confused.

Haha love this response. The amount of clueless spammers on Labs is seriously shocking.

so if you don’t go over your goody bag you just keep accumulating credit? Why?

Only point I can see for this is if it kicks in as an option for people who went over their last goody Bag but it should definitely be opt in!

There is absolutely no point as the OP keeps trying to explain in the comments. It was a joke idea which the spammers who either don't read or are clueless keep supporting. They are a menace on Labs

Might be worth reading the comments on ideas so you get a better idea from those who have been here a while. The early comments are the more informative ones as most comments nowadays are pointless and add nothing useful in deciding whether an idea is worthwhile or not.

Why don't you just set up a recurring Goodybag and top up GBP 10 credit every few months?
