Once your sim is activated, all new sim orders made via your account (Spread giffgaff), including sims you've ordered and handed on to friends will earn you 500 points upon their activation. Points earned in one month will be accumulated and will show on your account around the 5th of the following month. Points can only be claimed/used on the Payback Payout in June and December.
Plus, if you get a new member to activate a sim within 6 weeks of registering your own sim then you'll also receive £5.00 extra credit (added to your account within 24hrs.) for the "First recruit/activation bonus". This is a one off payment for recruiting your first new member. more about the Free Credit You ONLY get the £5 free credit after activation (which by the way includes topping up or buying a goodybag) minimum TOP-UP £10, if you got your sim from a referral link / signature banner or if the person who gave it to you ordered it from their spread giffgaff page. Sims ordered direct from giffgaff (from the website, ebay banner etc) do not attract this bonus.

On the last day of the month at midnight 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 your My giffgaff page widget is updated with the previous months points and the figures are displayed in your Newsfeed which is displayed in the middle of your My giffgaff page. Those who have opted in to giffgaff marketing will also receive their monthly points statement and text.
Here are the approximate key dates for payback:
Early April & October Community discussion starts for members (with active SIMs) to nominate a charity of choice to receive payback donation. This is open to all members not just those that wish to donate their payback to charity.
Mid May & November Nominations for charities close and voting begins.
End May & November Voting for Charities closes and Charities announced in the community.
31 May & 30 November Current payback periods end. Points earned up until midnight are included in the period.
1 June & December giffgaff tallies points earned in the payback periods. Any points earning activity by members/recruits that happens from today onwards is in the next payback period. Your final points statement will be sent in a few days time and points tally will be updated in your My giffgaff.
About 5 June & December Early selection window closes. If you want to take your payback as airtime credit you will receive it before PayPal payments and selections made after this date.
About 7 June & December First credit payments are processed. If you selected credit before the early selection window closed we will include you in this early payback payment.
About 12 June & December Selection window closes. You must select how you want to receive your payback (as credit, cash or donate to charity) before midnight. No late selections will be accepted.
About 13 June & December The remaining payback starts to get processed. We will process all remaining credit and PayPal payments. This payment process takes a different amount of time depending on the payback option selected.
About 19 June & December Second PayPal payment run will be processed.
27th of June & December ‘Ask an agent’ about payback queries open. As payments will be chugging through at different speeds, it is not possible to investigate any payments until all payments have been processed.
