I wanted to let you know about an exciting offer we have running in the last two weeks of September before the wider world finds out - this month we are giving all our members the chance to earn double Payback points for spreading giffgaff. Woohoo.
Usually when you bring a member to giffgaff, you receive £5 Payback but from today (14thSeptember) you’ll earn £10 Payback for every friend you bring on board and they’ll get £5 free credit when they join. The offer started as soon as the clocks struck 12 today (12:00am) and will run until midnight 30th September 31st October.
You can connect up to 5 friends on the promotion in September/October and you'll get £5 bonus Payback for each one. They must use their phone within 60 days of activating their SIM card as per FAQ and T's and C's below.
As you guys already know, spreading the giffgaff word 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 related to the offer.
1) Order SIMs for your friends: Get your hands on a Spread giffgaff SIM card:

If you happen to have one lying around at home that you’ve ordered previously from Spread giffgaff, that’s fine too
2) Activate: Get your friend to Activate that SIM card during September or October - remember your friend will receive £5 credit when they activate (something for you, something for them).
