I think it would be nice if we could order a GoodyBag or apply credit via text


I'll explain scenario, today i wanted the £5/month GoodyBag but really did not want to log on to my laptop [cos its sooo slow], so could have just texted "£5 Goodybag" to a GG phone number, [if your credit card details are saved online] they then in a text back ask me to confirm what i am buying and then apply the respective goodybag/credit to my account. Then if i wanted credit i could have texted "£5 credit".


Just an idea, leave your comments or if you like it Kudos the idea



please note: i added the "apply credit" idea  from the response from 'geekonthepc'. So many thanks to him/her

This, as well as a few other interactions via text are on the radar of Member Experience for 2014. There needs to be a few more discussions and prioritisation sessions to figure out which projects make the top of the pile, but this Idea is a contender. We'll let you know if it makes the cut in its current form.

:smileyhappy:I agree, with your idea, This would be cheaper, To Print Goodie Bag Text code's on your top up voucher than, Making Plastic swipe Cards,(My Idea), Less Cost for Giffgaff. To think about ?? ,as I am after an easer life, Thanks..

Caw hi . . .just a thought :smileyhappy:

Top up via a free text would be useful.
No need to use data and convenient if people are waiting for a phone call.

Topping up through the website doesn't use any of your data allowance, so I'm not too sure how much of a difference it would make, and how much it would take to implement the system. Nice idea though, I'll support it as I want to see what the giffstaffers have to say on the matter :smileyhappy: The more ways to top up, the better! (Then again, the more they have to maintain)

How can you top up a balance from your balance?

Caw using a voucher to top up with. That's what I'm talking about. Not all out giffgaffers use their phones to access the internet. . .So a free text would be ideal. :smileyhappy:
