Happy New Year everyone,

We want to make 2017 another awesome year for our members. 

So here’s a sweet treat that won’t bust any New Year’s diet plans.


To kick-start the year it’s £10 Payback for every new member you guys bring aboard by sharing the giffgaff love ( - throughout the month of January. Boom.



Usually when you bring a member to giffgaff, you receive £5 Payback but from Thursday 5th January to Tuesday 31st January you’ll earn £10 Payback for every friend you bring on board and they’ll still get £5 free credit when they join.

The offer starts as soon as the clocks strike 12 on Thursday 5th January (00:00) and will run until 23:59 on Tuesday the 31st January.


(Please note; this particular offer is not available for Super Recruiter activations)


We’re letting you all know a few days early so you can stock up on your SIMs.

Our website, emails and sim packs should all be up to date by Thursday (but please shout if you see any references we’ve missed J).


Already got SIMs?

Great - just get your friends to activate those and they’ll still count.

(except SIMs that came with a giffgaff Phone purchase – unfortunately they cannot be provisioned for this offer at this time).


Sharing the giffgaff love is at the heart of giffgaff, so don’t miss out on this Payback offer to get double the rewards this month.

Read below for some more information and terms related to the offer.


Thanks and Happy New Year!




What is Payback? If you’re new to giffgaff – Payback is our way of saying thanks for helping us out. We tally all of your Payback points and pay it back to you twice a year (June and December). You can select to take it as credit, cash (via a PayPal payment) or you can donate it to charity. For more information see our Payback info page.


Simple steps:

1) Order SIMs for your friends: Get your hands on a Share the Love giffgaff SIM card:

  • Order a SIM from  and get it delivered to your home for you to pass on to your friend
  • Or pass on your Personalised Order Link and your friends/family can order their own SIM card to their house
  • If you happen to have one lying around at home that you’ve ordered previously from  or that we sent you after you activated your own sim, that’s fine too (even if they don't mention the offer in the pack).

2) Activate: Get your friend to Activate that SIM card during January (5th – 31st)  - remember your friend will receive £5 credit when they activate (as always, something for you, something for them).


3) Payback: We’ll give you £5 regular payback + £5 bonus payback = £10 Payback (we’ll update your Payback tally as per normal). You'll get an automatic notification by email when your friend joins which will also tell you about the bonus £5.


Good luck!

As a thank you for being a Super Recruiter,  giffgaff will be giving you triple SIM activation payback during January. 


So that's 3 x £0 


I'm underwhelmed.  

I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.
