I got an email from giffgaff yesterday and must say that I was totally shocked to see that a single member had earned £17,000 in just 6 months!

But.... I don't understand how? If I'm reading the website correctly, there are band that members are sorted into based on the quality of their posts. The highest band gives 3000 points, equivalent to £30. So £30 x 6 months = £180. So that means he earnt £16,820 from giving out SIM cards? I know that obviously isn't the case but I just don't understand how it works really? Any help?

Hello jordan2121


You get 500 points for each SIM activated. One or two members are VERY good at giving out SIMs.  Smiley Happy

Each sim card ordered from:


are automatically linked to you and earn you 500 points per each activated card.

Those points are added up and twice a year in June and December, converted to ££££ (1 point = 1p so 500 points = £5) and paid out to you.

You can choose to be paid via PayPal,
Receive as airtime credit,
Donated to charity.

These cards also give the activatee an activation bonus of £5 credit.

So in summary:

£30 per month max via


£5 per sim card activated.

So in closing:

The maximum amount that can be earned from handing out Sims is only limited by how many cards you can persuade people to activate.

It's not about the number of posts, jack, it's about the quality. At least, that's what I reckon.


Things like making sure you read the query properly and answer what's been asked; making your answer clear, rather than brief jagon-full responses that not everyone would understand; explaining a little, not just C&Ping links with no explaination ..... that sort of thing.


At least, that's what I've tried to do to be helpful, and my payback's certainly been more than £11! Smiley Surprised


So keep at it, and think about the recipient and how you can really help them - 'cos it's not about the money, is it? Smiley Wink



Tip - Giffgaffers show appreciation for someone's posting by clicking on 'kudos', or if they've solved your query you can click on 'best answer' to reward them even more! So if someone's helped, let them know!
