    giffgaff free credit report is updating daily 20th Apr 17 at 9:10 PM
    I signed up to giffgaff's free credit report (same as noddle) recently, just to get an update before applying for my Barclaycard. The credit report seems to be updating on a daily basis! it is showing my new searches and an adjusted score every time I log in, also updates to financial account information etc. without having to wait a full month for a new report.

    I am not sure if this is their intention, or a technical error, but just thought I would throw it out here in case anyone wants to give it a try.

    edit: tried to post link but it called me a noob and said I am not allowed

    google giffgaff free credit report and you can find it

    Cheers for the heads up. Seems even former giffgaff users can get in on this, if you were on their community forums. Which I am.

    I'll see if I can confirm the daily updates you are seeing. Although I'm not planning too many new searches over the next few months.

    You're welcome!
    I have never held a giffgaff sim card or other product, I just signed up for the free report so I assume it is open to anyone

    It would appear you are correct, and this thing updates whenever you load it up.
    The personal searches appear (when you loaded the report) the day after you load it.
    Most of my accounts updated to end of last/beginning of this month yesterday.
