Data only goodybags

We have been working on delivering a data only goodybag and I can happily confirm that it these products will go live on the 10th October. In fact we are not launching one data only product but three. These are;

 

£5 for 500MB

£7.50 for 1GB

£12.50 for 3GB

 

Vincent has been discussing Data only goodybags in the Forum.  These products are to use with tablets, like iPads, dongles and other data devices.  If you wanted to tether with these data products, unlike our goodybags, you can.  These data only bags last for one month and can be bought from balance or with a debit or credit card (much like our goodybags). 

 

If you run over your allowance (e.g. 1GB), we’ll give you an extra 50MB for free.  If you then use all of this we have a special data goodybag rate of 2p per MB until the data goodybag expires.  We are planning to send you messages to let you know if you have used your allowance, when you start using the free 50MB and again when the 50MB is used up.

 

And this is what the data only goodybags looks like. 

 

 

We looked at data usage, went through lots of excel spreadsheets and double checked the fine details and we’ve squeezed as much data as we can into each of these goodybags, in fact if you use every bit of data in these products, giffgaff will lose money.  However we predict that not everyone who buys them is going to use all the data, so the overall data usage on these goodybags will balance out meaning that these really are the best value we can give to you.

 

Accompanying the launch of these lovely data only products is a new giffgaff App.  Vincent is discussing it in the Forum, so pop over if you want to take a sneak preview of features or contribute any ideas.

 

A data only product has been a popular idea on the Ideas Board, with over 100 Kudos, so it is great to be able to deliver and launch these products.

 

Thanks

Can these be used along side another goodybag? E.g COuld I have the £5 goodybag and a 1 gig data goodybag?

 

Thanks.

@olidoo - Unfortunately not. If you want two bags at once, you'll need to have each on a separate SIM. Smiley Sad

£5 for 500mb is good enough for me! i wont even be using up to 500mb in 4 weeks. maybe 250mg max. I will definateley buy this on launch!!

this is great news but what is the point of me buying 10 pound goodybag for 250 mins plus unlimited txts and internet just to wind up using two separate sims for texts one 1 and internet on the other??????????? Its a a stupid crazy idea. I am going once my goodybags finish.

@witcher77 - The existing £10+ goodybags will continue to include unlimited internet. That's not going to change. The main purpose of the new gigabags is to access the internet via your PC, laptop or tablet, which isn't permitted with the normal goodybags.

Brilliant idea,especially handy if your going away for a few days,

as certain hotels charge around £6-£7.50 just for 24hrs use.

this is going to be much more reasonable to use
