airtime credit is free for 3 months to gg numbers but chargeable to other networks.  goodybags  last 1 month and give you free calls and texts to other networks , still free to gg numbers for 3 months

Air time is using your credit. And goody bags last a month eg a £18 goody bag is inclusive of minutes text and data which doesn't use your credit once bought

Hi, 

 

Take a look here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Tips-Guides/CREDIT-AND-GOODYBAG-CONFUSION/m-p/988713#U988713 to see how airtime credit,  goodybags and giffgaff to giffgaff allowances all work.

My goodybag hasn't reoccurred this month and I'm unable to purchase another goodybag because my airtime credit is below £3. What does that mean?

If for example you load a topup voucher to 43430 the credit will remain until used up or swapped for a goodybag which itself will expire a month after purchase, whether you use the entire GB allowance or not.

There are 2 way of using the service. Credit and Goodybag. Goodybag is a package which you get free calls texts and data service for a month. However using the service by credit is a normal.
