When a new recruit activates one of your affiliate SIM cards to join giffgaff, they receive £5 bonus credit within 24 hours of adding their first topup or goodybag (it's usually instant).   SIM cards bought from retail outlets or ordered directly from the main giffgaff website do not get these bonuses.

 

For your first recruit, you get:

  • 500 payback points; plus
  • £5 airtime credit if they activate the SIM within 6 weeks of your own joining date.  This is added to your account about a week after they join.

For your 2nd-15th recruit, you get:

  • 500 payback points

Payback points earned one month are added within the first 14 days of the following month, and can be redeemed twice per year, the next being December 2018. 

 

From your 16th recruit you become a Super Recruiter.  You get nothing when recruits activate their SIM, instead getting a reward for them topping up / buying a goodybag for a 2nd and 3rd time if these are made within 120 days of their join date. 

I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.

Don't worry any payback points earned each month including SIM activation's(500 points) will be applied to your account around the 5th working day of the following month here http://www.giffgaff.com/profile/payback

The payback points can be claimed in the next payback period in the month of December.

You have the option to claim the points here https://giffgaff.com/profile/choose-payback-method as Cash(Paypal), Airtime Credit or Charity

Cash: This is paid via PayPal Instant Payment, you will need to add your PayPal email address (for your active PayPal account) via the Payback widget. You can only select cash if you've earned at least 1,000 Payback points. You will not be charged a fee by PayPal to receive it.

Credit: Your Payback points will be added to your account balance as airtime credit.

Charity *: This goes to the charities chosen by giffgaff members. The total amount donated by all giffgaff members will be matched by giffgaff - pound for pound.

@rufadj2018 Do not worry, as long as the recruit/sim activation is showing here https://giffgaff.com/spread/recruits (when logged into your account), then you will get the 500 payback points on your account in November (if the sim was activated in October).  Payback points are worth 1p each, so 500 points are worth £5.

 

You can select your payment method here https://giffgaff.com/profile/payback - points are updated a each month.  Payback period June 18-November 18 will be paid out in December 18.

@rufadj2018 You will receive £5 worth of Payback Points.

 

These are added to your account, usually, within the first five working days in the month following that in which the points were earned.

Hello you don’t get £5 you get 500 payback points worth £5

any payback earned in month is credited to your payback about 5th working day following month, What's Payback?

It's simple. Recommend giffgaff to your friends and family or help your fellow members in our forums and we'll give you Payback points twice a year. Here are a few ways to earn points:

Send SIMs to your friends to earn 500 points for every activated SIM
Share your personalised SIM order page to earn 500 points for every activated SIM ordered from you.
Recommend friends with your member name when they order a SIM to earn 200 points
Help out giffgaff members in our forum. Points are added to your "My Payback" widget on the 5th of every following month.
Our Payback currency is pennies (1 point = 1 penny).

We collect all the points you earn and send monthly email statements. Twice a year (June and December) choose how to use your points:

Cashback via PayPal (only eligible if you've earned more than 1,000 points)
airtime credit for your mobile
Donate it to charity selected by our members
To be eligible for Payback you must have an active giffgaff SIM, used your phone within 3 months before end november 2018

You will receive your reward for introducing a new person to GiffGaff by the 5th of the following month. 

 

You will rewarded with 500 payback points which is the equivalent of £5.00. Payback can be collected over the next few months and is then ‘paid out’ twice a year December & June. You can choose how to receive this, add to your balance, withdraw via PayPal, even donate to charity. 

 

For the next payback which is due in December, to have till late November to decide/change how you wish to claim. 

 

The good old news is you still have another couple of months to earn more points by adding further recommendations to join GiffGaff or by helping out in the forums.
