PLEASE NOTE: This is a thread from September 2017, and will no longer be an accurate description of giffgaff's goodybags from Februrary 22nd 2018. our main goodybags page
I’m pleased to share that from the 4th October we’ll be injecting more data into our goodybags. We keep a close eye on usage and 'wow' do you guys like your data. We’ve been seeing increases in what you use so we wanted to take on the challenge of finding a way to give you more of what you need. Now we’ve finished crunching the numbers, I’m pleased to report we’ve managed to do it and at no extra cost to you.
Here’s a summary of what’s happening. We are adding an extra 1GB of data to our £10 goodybag to take it to 3GB and an extra 1GB to our £12 and £15 goodybags as well. At £18 we are making the 50% extra data promotion permanent giving you 9GB and we’re increasing the allowance on our £20 Always On goodybag before speed restrictions apply to 9GB. And finally, we’re also increasing the data allowance on £7.50 from 750MB to 1GB.
Checkout the changes in this table:
* Speed restrictions apply to Always On data. After you reach your allowance you’ll experience a reduced data speed of 384kbps from 8am to Midnight. You may notice that activities which require high amounts of data, like HD video streaming, will be slower.
** Standard allowance before we launched our recent offer of 9 GB.
We’re emailing members on goodybags to share the good news. If you recur your goodybag or have one queued you don’t have to do anything as we’ll make the change for you when your next goodybag kicks in on or after the 4th Oct.
Remember that launch day of Wednesday 4th Oct, it will be here before you know it. Until then thank you for choosing giffgaff and for all your ideas and feedback.

We’ve written some answers to the usual FAQs and in addition here’s a couple of things I’d just like to clarify:
All minutes and texts allowances stay the same and there’s no change to our current £5 goodybag.
Because we’ve increased the data at £7.50 to 1GB we’ll be retiring our current £7.50 gigabag.
