How do I check my giffgaff balance?
This guide details all the methods available for you to check your balance with your phone, tablet or computer.
Use shortcodes to check your balance
If you want to be able to verify your balance from your phone at any time, the best solution is to call the following free codes.
|*100#||Remaining airtime credit balance|
|*100*1#||Expiry date for free giffgaff to giffgaff calls and texts|
|*100*5#||Remaining text balance*|
|*100*7#||Remaining goodybag minutes balance|
* Remaining text balance applies only to the Hokey Cokey goodybag which has 300 inclusive texts. Goodybags with unlimited texts will show 0 texts remaining.
Please note: If you have a goodybag and you didn't buy any additional airtime credit, the airtime credit balance will appear as nil. This is normal as a goodybag isn't classified as balance.
Tip: Save these numbers to your phone directory so you don't have to remember them.
Manage your balance notifications
Your airtime credit balance is automatically displayed on your handset briefly after every call you make or message you send.
If you would like to switch balance notifications on or off, simply log in to your account and head to "My giffgaff > Balance notifications"
Turning them On
- Simply check 'Show balance after each call or text'
Turning them Off
- Simply uncheck 'Show balance after each call or text'
Check your balance with a Web Browser
From your internet-enabled phone
An alternative way to check the balance on your phone is to access my giffgaff account through a web browser:
- Go to this link in your phone giffgaff.com/mobile.
- In the top right hand corner of your account in bold font you will see how much credit you have (if any), and it will also state whether you have an active goodybag, when it will end and how many minutes you have left.
From your computer
