I think it would be nice if we could order a GoodyBag or apply credit via text


I'll explain scenario, today i wanted the £5/month GoodyBag but really did not want to log on to my laptop [cos its sooo slow], so could have just texted "£5 Goodybag" to a GG phone number, [if your credit card details are saved online] they then in a text back ask me to confirm what i am buying and then apply the respective goodybag/credit to my account. Then if i wanted credit i could have texted "£5 credit".


Just an idea, leave your comments or if you like it Kudos the idea



please note: i added the "apply credit" idea  from the response from 'geekonthepc'. So many thanks to him/her

19th May 2015 - Evening guys, this Idea is over 5 years old, and whilst we don't want to say we won't ever do it - it is habitually is de-prioritised due to the complex nature of the system, and a concern it would raise cases for members accidentally buying the wrong goodybag. This idea can absolutely be re-posted when the new Platform launches, and members can have a fresh discussion about whether they want this and whether they think it would benefit giffgaff to have.

You may be able to buy vouchers from O2 via text and then redeem them on an iPhone/iPod Touch or any other phone it's possible on. It would be a nice little feature but there is many other ways to do it too.

It would be a good idea to be able to buy a goodybag via the App.....You can only top up by voucher on it...A bit pointless really....

Nice idea.


It also means you don't need a PC to access Goody Bags.
