GiffGaff Referral Links

Status: Implemented
by adamboutcher on ‎10-07-2010 03:36

How about making buttons / links to request a GiffGaff Sim card and say view information about GiffGaff that are referral links.

 

For example I could Tweet "Check out GiffGaff's prices" and a link (i.e. giffgaff.com?ref=adamboutcher) and that goes to the info and I get say 10points

 

Where as I could also put "request a GiffGaff Sim" and a link (i.e. giffgaff.com/sim?ref=adambouctcher) and that goes to the sim request page which could give me 50 points, also this could mean when the sim card is activated I would get the 500 points from that too.

 

This would allow for more Internet links on blogs, tweets, websites etc.

Any news? Just thought of this idea but am glad someone else is on the case already!

There already seems to be an abuse of this check out cow.neodragon.net referral link: https://www.lolagrove.com/LeadGenerationPage.ashx?E=197&L=1167&P36=RSBFLP&AFF=khlo&UrlRef=http%3a%2f...

It look like it has copied whole sections of the giffgaff site from some months ago, including logos, etc. It must be a blatant breach of copyright, etc.

@jonmd

 

It looks like the link is through lolagrove.com, which appears to be a lead generation platform. 

 

If you click on the "Giff Gaff* " link in this MSE article, it takes you through to the same page at lolagrove.

 

This leads me to believe giffgaff has a relationship with lolagrove, and possibly set the page up themselves.

 

I'm sure giffgaff rep could advise if that's the case or not.
