Hi you can only start a queued goodybag early if you meet the conditions noted in the guide below. Plus guide on how to avoid using data check guide.
HOW CAN I START MY QUEUED GOODYBAG EARLY
If you have less than 100mb, 100 texts or 100 minutes left on your active goodybag then it is possible to activate your queued goodybag straight away rather than having to wait for your current goodybag to expire. If you have an active £25 "Always On" goodybag, this action is available after you've used the first 20GB data at full speed.
- Go to My giffgaff.Link>> https://giffgaff.com/dashboard
- Click on the button to Start the queued goodybag right now. The same operation is also available from the goodybag page. Link>> https://giffgaff.com/buy
Example of how it may look when you have a goodybag running low
- The queued goodybag will immediately replace your active goodybag. You may need to restart your device to encourage the new goodybag to 'kick-in' properly.
Starting your queued goodybag early will remove any remaining allowances (data, texts, minutes) that you may have left on your active goodybag.
IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE to start a queued goodybag early using the 43430 top-up number from your phone or the giffgaff mobile app.
