Twice a year giffgaff gives back. Payback is giffgaff’s way of saying thanks to all the members that have helped giffgaff grow and helped other members answering questions, coming up with ideas, designing images, making how to videos, keeping us entertained the list goes on.


Members have until midnight 12th June to let us know how they’d like their payback points, we’ll be paying back our members from the 13th June...but if you choose credit and get in early you could have your Payback from 6th June.


Next week we’ll announce how much we’ll be giving back in total..... early indications is that we’ll hit an exciting milestone, a far cry from our first Payback of £27,000!


Members with points can choose:

  • Credit: We’re making an early payment on the 6th for those that make their credit selection before midnight 5th June, otherwise we’ll start making payments from 13th June
  • Cash via Paypal: If you would like your payment via Paypal, we’ll be processing payments from 13th June.

For payback timings please see this post.

Last December Macmillan Cancer Support was chosen by the community as the charity to receive donated Payback, this was what they had to say:

Dear giffgaff community,

We’d like to thank you for the extremely generous donation. The money you have donated will go a long way to helping Macmillan in our ambition of supporting everyone affected by cancer.


One in three of us will get cancer and it’s the toughest thing most of us will ever face. But you don't have to go through it alone. The Macmillan team is here to support you every step of the way. We provide practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care. Your support helps us to make a real difference to people living with cancer.


Thanks again for the kind donation, and it’s fantastic to know we have such great support across the giffgaff community.


Kindest regards

Daniel at Macmillan


Thanks again everyone for helping make the last 6 months so successful!


From all the giffgaff team
