Buying your goodybag directly with your voucher should be pushed more to stop this happening, although it doesn't help members who just want airtime credit, so getting this fixed is a must because it would ease the frustration that members feel when it happens and it would clear up alot of agent work, win win all round.
Although I remember the original penny glitch only happened when you bought your goodybag and you were left with 1p after the goodybag purchase, so even the penny glitch has evolved over time.
Could this stop the problem ?
once a credit is loaded you cannot do anything until you have chosen an option A window pops up and says now choose. Use as payg credit Buy a goody bag This way no credit loss because even if they dont do anything and go away when they return it will still be on the pop up window
@bluemoonbaz nice idea but how would 43430 purchases reflect that pop up action?
Good point Jay @jaymailsays
Maybe a similar thing
When you call it gives us the option to buy a goody bag and a top up up .
Maybe once you select top up it ask you do you want to leave as payg credit or buy a goody bag and the member makes the choice then are there .
It won't solve the problem of losing your credit balance though if this is an inherent system fault, but at the that point you can flag up any loss .
Ideally we need giffgaff to solve the problem why it's happening first
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
As you already know, I will need some examples in order to raise this further. Could I kindly request for you to keep your eyes peeled for any cases like these that you come across over the past 2-3 days and simply post them on this thread?
