Just going through my old Labs ideas and found this one.  Over a year old now, but I still think it has some value to giffgaffers and giffgaff alike.  PLEASE NOTE:  my suggestion is not to do away with Payback in its current format, but to add a 4th option:

 

  1. Get payback as airtime credit
  2. Get payback through Paypal
  3. Donate payback to charity
  4. Get payback through vouchers for a range of different retailers

@lpwilliams Just been looking at one of the examples in your idea...

 

B)> I have £100 cashback and chose Amazon vouchers (to give me an extra 3%) IF giffgaff can bulk buy vouchers through corporate scheme at a 10% reduction, then cost to giffgaff = £90 and I get £103. I have more and giffgaff saved too - WIN:WIN

 

Is the £103 you get £103 in Amazon vouchers?  If so then isn't the cost to giffgaff £103 - 10% = £92.70p?  Or am I confusing myself some where? 

 

Either way... nice idea.

Interesting idea, but don't get that much payback myself so fairly happy with current setup.

I haven't looked at the link, but something to bear in mind - vouchers expire. If you had £300 payback that's a lot to spend on Amazon all at once.
