Hi giffgaffers

All the lovely weather we’ve seen recently has put us in a generous mood.


We’ve got a banger of an offer to shout about.

From tomorrow, 1st August, all members (including Super Recruiters) will be able to offer their friends and family £10 bonus credit for joining giffgaff through them rather than the usual £5 credit on offer.


The offer starts as soon as the clocks strike 12 on the 1st August (00:00) and will run until 23:59 on Friday the 31st August. This offer is applicable for any new activation by your friends or family (or anyone else, really) if they activate a SIM from you.

Please note: This £10 credit will be delivered to your friends as two £5 amounts.
£5 within 24 hours of activating, as per usual. Another £5 within 48  hours of them activating.

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


Already got SIMs?

Great - just get your friends to activate those during the promotion time period 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 love is at the heart of giffgaff, so don’t miss out on this great offer.

Check the spoiler for some FAQ's and terms related to the offer.

Happy sharing everyone!

Terms apply

* Note - this promotion is for new joining members who must activate an eligible SIM during this promotion, activating a SIM against an existing member account will not be eligible for the extra credit (just like our normal share the love programme and as per our normal terms). 

My SIM packs still say my friend will only get £5 free credit when they join, will they get £10?

For any packs you order during the promotional period that shouldn't be the case. But don't worry - older SIM packs are still eligible (just make sure they are activated before 23.59 31/08/2018)
And please note It can take up to 48 hours for your friend's second £5 to show – remember you can check your giffgaff credit balance at any time by dialing *100# from your giffgaff phone.

Is this available to Super Recruiters?
Yes - this offer is to any new member who joins through an existing member or via a Super Recruiter.

Are there any limits to the number of friends I can bring aboard?

No, share away to one and all.

I've previously been a member and activated a SIM. I've now come back to activate a new SIM against my existing account, do I get the extra credit?

Sadly not, this promotion is for new joining members.

Activating a SIM against an existing member account will not be eligible for the extra credit (just like our normal share the love programme and as per our normal terms).

This is a great offer. Should help get some extra Activations in.  Smiley Happy




One question though.  The SIM in a box (50 SIM) packs.   Hopefully you will NOT be changing the words from 'Here's £5 free credit on us' to 'Here's £10 free credit on us'.  This is because the majority of the SIM Cards will be sitiing on shop shelves for months after the offer has finished!


Please reply with your thoughts on this issue.
