On 18th October, we embarked on a new proposition for Facebook in line with our ethos of giving you, our members, tools to spread the word of giffgaff. Over the past month, we set a target of Facebook likes for you and you hit our target by asking your friends and family to like our Facebook page. And when we set another one, you hit it again. And again. And again.
All in all, because of all your hard work, we now have more than 11,000 people who like our Facebook page - another 3,500 new people who like giffgaff because of you. And since we like to give back (giffgaff does mean mutual giving after all), we’ve added an extra 100 minutes to any £10 goodybag that is activated between 15 November and 31 December. That makes it a total of 250 minutes, unlimited texts and data. In true giffgaff style, this bonus applies to everyone with a £10 goodybag as we believe the work of a few can definitely benefit all of us.
We’d like to thank everyone for taking part and spreading the word. It’s because of members like you that we get giffgaff out there. Community is important to us - on our site, on facebook, twitter and around the social web. We love giffgaff as much as you do and want it to grow and be the best it can be.
Here a couple comments from our members on Facebook about the Facebook Likes challenge:
Audrey Marie Rose: I got 2 people on it over the weekend and my son is going on it any day :-)
Tony 'Fudga' Fulthorp: I do try my best to spread the good word of giffgaff and of course I bought the £10 goody bag today, I would be mad not to queue one up.
Chris Russell: GiffGaff is fantastic...its as simple as that..free giffgaff to giffgaff calls and texts plus the brilliant goodybag system that allows you to get just what you want...i love it :-)
Leigh-ann Lomax: I love giffgaff have recently joined along with my husband and son have passed sims on to my father. Getting my daughter sim sorted this week and have posted on different forums about giffgaff. Will be buying a goodybag shortly with the extra minutes for when my current one runs out.
Terry Carruthers: I’ve got all my lot to join never looked back. I’ve been with all the networks and can say giffgaff is the best and the most friendly
So to all of you activating the £10 goodybag between now and 31 December, enjoy the extra 100 minutes.
Oh and that reminds me. Your mum rang. She heard about the extra minutes and wants you to call.
