Buying goody bag from airtime credit

I have been topping up my credit each month then buying a goody bag. When I top up I know I will get 3 months free GG to GG calls and texts. I also know I get free calls and texts to GG numbers when I buy a goody bag. What I would like to know, if I have airtime credit in my account but haven't topped up during the previous three months, if I 'buy' a goody bag with that airtime credit, will I still get free calls and texts to other Giffgaff numbers? The reason I'm asking is that I am due to get some payback next month and I was going to take this as airtime credit then use that to buy my next couple of £10 goody bags but I would still like to have the free giffgaff calls and texts.

Re: Buying goody bag from airtime credit

Free to giffgaff:
You need to top-up or buy a goodybag from your credit card at least every 3 months to receive free giffgaff to giffgaff calls, The free giffgaff to giffgaff calls last for 60 minutes per call, so you need to hang up and re-dial if you want to keep talking.

No, it has to be new money and not using existing airtime credit to get the free calls.

Your payback would work for one time only, see here for more detail:  http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/gg-to-gg-free-allowance-and-the-effects-of-...

Re: Buying goody bag from airtime credit

Thanks for all responses. Bit clearer now. I knew payback only counted once as top up. I could see that goodybag gave free gg to gg. Now i know you still have to use card
to top up or buy goodybag every 3 months to benefit. Not a problem. Still a great deal.
