We have been working on delivering a data only goodybag and I can happily confirm that it these products will go live on the 10th October. In fact we are not launching one data only product but three. These are;


£5 for 500MB

£7.50 for 1GB

£12.50 for 3GB


Vincent has been discussing Data only goodybags in the Forum.  These products are to use with tablets, like iPads, dongles and other data devices.  If you wanted to tether with these data products, unlike our goodybags, you can.  These data only bags last for one month and can be bought from balance or with a debit or credit card (much like our goodybags). 


If you run over your allowance (e.g. 1GB), we’ll give you an extra 50MB for free.  If you then use all of this we have a special data goodybag rate of 2p per MB until the data goodybag expires.  We are planning to send you messages to let you know if you have used your allowance, when you start using the free 50MB and again when the 50MB is used up.


And this is what the data only goodybags looks like. 



We looked at data usage, went through lots of excel spreadsheets and double checked the fine details and we’ve squeezed as much data as we can into each of these goodybags, in fact if you use every bit of data in these products, giffgaff will lose money.  However we predict that not everyone who buys them is going to use all the data, so the overall data usage on these goodybags will balance out meaning that these really are the best value we can give to you.


Accompanying the launch of these lovely data only products is a new giffgaff App.  Vincent is discussing it in the Forum, so pop over if you want to take a sneak preview of features or contribute any ideas.


A data only product has been a popular idea on the Ideas Board, with over 100 Kudos, so it is great to be able to deliver and launch these products.

Glad to finally see these. Shame that they have a 1 month time-limit on them though...

@wilky The key word is EVERYONE. Although it is quite easy to use a lot of data, EVERYONE isn't interested in streaming and downloads etc., thus giffgaff hope to cash in on the overall AVERAGE usage.

I haven't failed to notice that the £7.50 gigabag has been given the colour of the former £30 goodybag :smileyhappy:

Now we have the data goodybag sorted, how about an update on the Blackberry situation as quite a lot of people on the community are getting annoyed

Hi Giffgaff team,


I would like to ask, how can i cancel my gigabags purchase.

Am very unhappy with the gigabags (1 G/month) , use in my ipad only when away from home. Switched on today and found my monthly allowance already used.....have not had it on so far this month. For someone who does not download music, videos and only occasionally watches a youtube clip this is a complete waste of money and I am changing to another provider. Interetsingly when I am abroad and buy local PAYG sims I never run out of data!

Looking for something?
