Launched on 25th November 2009 - I think the anniversary of giffgaff's birth should become a National giffgaff Day.
A feature of the day could be 1/2 price calls, texts or data useage... and for those with goodybags, then their useage would also be reduced by 50% on the National giffgaff Day.
National giffgaff Day could also be an advertising promotion leading up to the event. For people activating a sim on National giffgaff Day they would get an extra £5 credit (on top of any additional credit they would normally be offered when activating a sim on days other than National giffgaff Day)
I realise this would come at a cost to giffgaff but could also have a positive financial effect on the number of people considering giffgaff in the lead up to Christmas, when many people buy phones - so phone sales could also go up..
Currently when you do a Google search for Capped SIM Cards you get a few ads and just one result: Tesco Mobile. Well with more and more scary media reports of people being billed thousands of pounds by accidentally leaving their data switched on or using their phone abroad, why not do a bit of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and get giffgaff up there on the results page. I'm thinking this would work the best with the £5/£7.50 goodybags at the lower end, which I've heard are much better than Tesco's similarly priced offerings. And once we have the possible new member landed on a giffgaff page, we can say something like:
"If you only buy a Goodybag, then when you run out of your allowance it will stop and not run up a bill, and if you have remaining credit, that can be used but once that runs out you will not be charged further."
"With giffgaff there are no shocking bank statements."
Hopefully this would lead to lots of new members that otherwise wouldn't have chosen giffgaff and may have moved to Tesco Mobile.

But i feel like a minimum of £12 for 4G is ridiculous, especially because 3G is so awful now. To be honest, a £5 goodybag with like 100minutes, 200 texts and 200mb would be amazing (or something in that arena) nobody rly texts anymore. I joined giffgaff for being versatile with what would pay depending on my activity. Sure i can get a 3G goodybag, but 3G has become so awful that i barely actually can use it...
Each lend us a quid should only be used once per topup. So if you run out of the extra lent quid. You will not be aloud to lend another untill after you pay it back and run out of your next lot of credit.
Also. If the quid is not paid back in 30 days. Giffgaff can charge a late payment fee of 50p.
Well I know what your thinking. What if they do not pay it back. Well what sort of friendly giffgaff user would not?
Please please please agree to take this up.
Passionate giffgaff user.
I see a new design has come into place, looks fresh. So I was wondering if it's like a rebranding or part of a whole new look for Giffgaff. Maybe a new logo or font is the next thing.
If so, why not run a competition for the members to design a new logo? Get everyone involved and award a great prize to the one who makes the best one? (I say a great prize because I know how much a new lgoo can cost a company)
I've seen some mention this but not in this kind of way.
Basically the idea is that if you have an old mobile that you could either:
1) Get Money off a new phone
2) Get Cash or Payback on recycling your old phone
I think the best way to do this is shown below in the picture:
This would be great to see the potential money you could get before even selling it.
It would also be great to have a page that shows used/refurbished phones for sale.
Let me know what you think!
Kudos this if you think its a good idea!
Why don't giffgaff allow businesses to have giffagff to have unlimited texts or/and unlimited internet they could charge more and giffgaff would most likely get more business companies by small and maybe big businesses. Also giffgaff could do deals in bulk for big businesses
