I think every 6 months for pay back is something good to look forward to and if it was paid anymore often than that it would over complicate things and possibly would tempt people to only join giff gaff temporarily just to earn some extra cash. I know we aren't tied to giff gaff but maybe waiting 6 months for pay back might be something that encourages a lot of people to stay.

It's unlikely Giffgaff would consider this as it's such an big task doing it twice a year.

Award payback points monthly and pay payback out Six monthly, it's fine the way it is and gives people in GD. something to post about.

I think for practically reasons that will be a difficult one. Bearing in mind that giffgaff is community run and the agents already doing a great job.


Accounting payback every month will be quite a task which l wouldn't expect giffgaff to undertake.

This would increase giffgaffs admin and costs, there is nothing wrong with the twice yearly current setup.

I can see why some people would prefer to receive this more frequently. 


I personally am very happy with the 2 payouts a year. I think it’s rewarding to see the total increasing over the months, ensures loyalty and encourages other members to help



I suppose in short I am saying if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.

I for one would definetly not change payback ,it is bad enough with all the posts around members points each month,and the ever increasing demanding posts from members when payback is actually due to be paayed out,can you imagine the posts if it was every month Smiley Sad


It is brilliant just the way it is Smiley Happy

It’s a lot of data to process and even with the 6 monthly there are delays sometimes so I would rather it remains as it is. It’s nicely balanced as it is.
