£5 free credit

Sorry to keep banging on about this, but why advertise £5 free credit for joining, if you are not actually going to provide it? On my SIM pack, direct from GiffGaff, it stated £5 free credit when the SIM is activated. This has so far not been credited to my account. 

I am really disappointed with GiffGaff due to this, and no one has so far been able to provide me with a reasonable answer to this problem.


I am considering going back to O2, as if this is the future of GiffGaff (lies and broken promises), then I do not wish to be a part of it.

Re: £5 free credit

hi neiljh,
it depends where you ordered the sim. if it was ordered from the home page, you won't receive £5 credit.
if it was ordered from another member then you should. if this is the case, contact an agent
i hope i have helped you

If you don't order the sim card from a Giffgaff member you won't get the free 5 pounds of credit.

Re: £5 free credit
