Earning - Forum Participation
On top of all the other ways mentioned for earning payback, you can also earn by helping out on the forums.
The amount you get depends on how much you have done, this is decided by giffgaff staff and is not counted by posts and kudos alone. There are 4 brackets, high, medium, low and none. You will be sorted into these brackets and the correct amount of payback given. You can see the amount of payback you get here, this is updated by Robbie every month.
How To Claim Payback
Claiming payback is easy - when you get the "final" statement (at the start of June and December) you then have 14 days to select how you want payback (the different options are explained in the next section) - just go to "My giffgaff" and on the payback statement it will give you the option to select how you want payback.
Click this button then it will take you to a screen to select how you want it, choose your option and confirm.
Done! It will get processed later in the month (detailed dates will be stated later).
Ways of Claiming Payback
Payback comes in 3 forms, the first is cash - which is sent via PayPal, all PayPal costs are covered by giffgaff.
The second option is credit, just added to your phone.
The final option is a donation to Caner Research (the chosen charity by the community) - all donations will be matched by giffgaff.
The important dates EVERY month are simple. On the last day of the month at midnight that is the cut off for that month, anything made after that date will be in NEXT month's statement.
Around the 5th of the month a statement is issued, telling you what you have earnt over the month previous. i.e. The statement issued on October 5th would be for September.
The next payback date will be happening the first week of December. These are all the key dates:
An important note: You need to top-up within 3 months of the final payback date to be eligible for payback. Except for our VIG's though.
