Morning Vincent,
If you've used up your data allowance before your goodybag or gigabag expires, GG will send a notification to your phone to let you know. You will need to top up your credit in your account to carry on using data, if you have, then you will be charged at 2p/MB for the life of your goodybag, but once your goodybag expires, standard payg rates will apply if you don't buy a new one.
If I helped click ''best answer and kudos'' thanks.

Hi,

 

You have not stated whether you have a goodybag or gigabag (for data only).

 

IF you have a goodybag bundle, then unfortunately these run for a full 30 days and if you use up any allowance before the 30 days are up, then you will be charged from your account balance / airtime credit.  For data it is 2p per MB once a goodybag allowance has been exhausted (20p per MB if you did not have a goodybag to start with).

 

IF you have a gigabag, then you can have more than 1 gigabag during the 30 days and you can buy anothe that will start once your current gigabag is used up.

 

HINDSIGHT is a wonderful thing, but if you see that you are using more data that you originally thought, the beauty of giffgaff is next month you can go for a different goodybag (if this is what you are on) and buy a bag with more or even unlimited data - although be aware that unlimited goodybags CANNOT be used for personal hotspots or tethering.

 

You can top up your account by adding airtime credit on your logged in section of the gg website, you can also buy O2, giffgaff or TESCO mobile top up vouchers from shops - I personally do this as know somebody who works in a shop who gets 10% off all purchases, so my £12 goodybag costs £10.80 this way - if you don't know anyone who works in shops, keep an eye out for the money off coupons such as £3 off £20 spend etc - then use it for mobile top up - remember, must be O2, Tesco mobile or giffgaff voucher (but you do not phone the 4444 number on the voucher, you phone the giffgaff top up number of 43430

Hope this helps?

A goodybag lasts 30 days and you can only have one active at a time.  .The only other option is to use airtime credit , so make sure your topped up with airtime credit in case your goodybag runs out early.

After you use all your data, you will get extra 50 MB buffer. After you use this , it will be 2p per MB from your airtime credit.
