£16 Top Up for a £10 Goody bag....

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.

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

Stop spamming. This idea is a nonsense as even the OP has stated. All blindly 'supportive' responses are pointless spamming and shows the idea has just been blindly responded to. Parasitic behaviour.
