Order a GoodyBag and apply credit via text

Order a GoodyBag and apply credit via text

I think it would be nice if we could order a GoodyBag or apply credit via text

 

I'll explain scenario, today i wanted the £5/month GoodyBag but really did not want to log on to my laptop [cos its sooo slow], so could have just texted "£5 Goodybag" to a GG phone number, [if your credit card details are saved online] they then in a text back ask me to confirm what i am buying and then apply the respective goodybag/credit to my account. Then if i wanted credit i could have texted "£5 credit".

 

Just an idea, leave your comments or if you like it Kudos the idea

 

 

please note: i added the "apply credit" idea  from the response from 'geekonthepc'. So many thanks to him/her

giffgaff are actually planning on having a consultation on the issue in the future. You might want to read the current status of this idea http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Submit-Great-giffgaff-Ideas/Order-a-GoodyBag-and-apply-credit-via-t... which is essentially the same Smiley Happy

great idea, just posted a similar idea myself and realised that this idea has already been suggested Smiley Happy

But don't hold your breath as they've been considering this since 2010...

I think it'd be a really complicated thing to implement, and I personally see no need for it.

This, as well as a few other interactions via text are on the radar of Member Experience for 2014. There needs to be a few more discussions and prioritisation sessions to figure out which projects make the top of the pile, but this Idea is a contender. We'll let you know if it makes the cut in its current form.

Smiley HappyI agree, with your idea, This would be cheaper, To Print Goodie Bag Text code's on your top up voucher than, Making Plastic swipe Cards,(My Idea), Less Cost for Giffgaff. To think about ?? ,as I am after an easer life, Thanks..

Caw hi . . .just a thought Smiley Happy

Top up via a free text would be useful.
No need to use data and convenient if people are waiting for a phone call.

Topping up through the website doesn't use any of your data allowance, so I'm not too sure how much of a difference it would make, and how much it would take to implement the system. Nice idea though, I'll support it as I want to see what the giffstaffers have to say on the matter Smiley Happy The more ways to top up, the better! (Then again, the more they have to maintain)
