Sadly you will need some money as everything on giffgaff is PAYG.
So if you run out of data you have 3 options
- Stop using data
- Keep using data but pay for it out of Airtime Credit (which you can top up anytime you like) at the PAYG rate of 5p per MB
- Start a new bag early.
In order to be able to start a new bag early you have to have less than 100MB of data.
(Note if you ever have the Always On bag you cannot start a new one early until you have used all the 40GB of Full Speed Data)
Starting a new bag a early will overwrite the exisiting bag and so ALL your allowances will re-set not just the data - however this is not an issue with any bag costing £10 or more because as they come with unlimited minutes and texts you are not actually “losing” anything.
As you have the Recurring Goodybag function set to ON then you need to note the following:
- payment will be taken when you start the bag early
- and so your next bag will start a full calendar month from when you start the new bag so your “payment date” will have changed.
As you have found yourself running out of data, including the bonus 1GB, then, unless this is an unusual situation, you may want to consider buying a bigger bag.
If so then before you start the new bag cancel the one that is queued, and change it for a bigger one.
