If its your first recruit within 6 weeks of you joining then £5 credit will be added automatically to your account as well as 500 points, which you'll see next month under my giffgaff.

For every activation you get 500 points (£5) which are calculated on the 5th of each month. If your friend has just activated this month then the points will not show on your account till 5th January and you will get your payback some time in June, payback is paid twice a year, December and June. If it's your first recruit then you should also receive £5 additional credit which you normally receive within a week.
Did you give your friend the sim your ordered or did she just order on her own but put your name under referral when she signed up? If you gave her the sim, you will receive 500 points and it will be reflected in your statement next month and at the same time she will get 5 pounds bonus credit. If she just put you as a referral, you will get 200 points, and she gets nothing.
Hope this helped.
