    giffgaff SIM, 5 bonus credit, 8p/min calls

    giffgaff SIM, 5 bonus credit, 8p/min calls 26th Nov 10 at 3:58 AM
    giffgaff is a virtual mobile brand, which works using the O2 network

    They offer optional monthly add-on bundles, or simple payg call rates of 10 pence a minute, text messages 6 pence

    Their bundles, which they call goodybags, range from 5 for modest use to 20 for 2000 minutes with unlimited texts and internet.

    Or there is also a range of data only bundles, intended for use in dongle or tablet PCs, etc

    Free calls and texts to other giffgaff users, free calls to freephone numbers

    Also competitive tariffs for making international calls from UK.

    More details of tariffs at - expand sections lower down for stuff like 08 numbers and international and roaming rates.

    A unique aspect of giffgaff is that they believe some of the support queries can be answered by other users, and those that do so on the forum are rewarded with some payback, at 6 month intervals, so if that interests you, join in!

    There is also an offer for referring other people, using affiliate links direct to the ordering process, and the referrer sees no personal details.

    The offer is a SIM card with free 5 bonus credit, which is added shortly after activation.

    Please note that the SIM arrives not active, and cannot be used only for the free credit. To save waste please don't order if that's all you hope for.

    To activate it you need to enter the 6 letter code printed on the SIM, then your details, and make the first 10 top-up, (which can buy an optional goodybag if you wish, or that can be added later from credit on the account).

    Top-ups can be made using either a debit or credit card, or with a voucher from a shop. There are giffgaff vouchers available in plenty of shops, or O2 voucher may be used instead.

    The advantage to me is that I also get 5 worth of the payback points for the referral, if you use my link.

    I suggest that if you want a number of SIMs e.g. for your family, that you order just one or two to start with, then once active you can refer yourself for the others and get 5 bonus each, for them and for you.

    You may of course order without using a referral, but without the bonus 5 either, straight from giffgaff.

    Adding my giffgaff referral link here. By joining giffgaff through this link you will receive 5 call credit when you first top up. I will also receive 5. My 5 credit is being donated to charity through giffgaff who will match it giving 10 to charity at no cost to you.
    I'm optimistically aiming for 100 referrals which will give 1000 to charity.

    To give 10 to charity at no cost to you and receive 5 call credit please join giffgaff here

    Thank you.
