My goodybag expires, I barely used 10% of it - it's been a fast-paced month for me occupied with work.

I just paid £5 for another one - why is GiffGaff being so mean? It low-key just takes more money than needed. Without goodybags, each call can deduct ££ of credit. What a limbo.

It's basically a business decision by giffgaff how to price,.

Why buy a goodybag if you don't really use it?

If your not a heavy user you always have the option to top up with airtime credit(pay as you go credit) instead here http://www.giffgaff.com/top-up (£10 minimum)

Airtime credit never expires and only get used up when you make use of it - Complete pay as you go pricing can be found here http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

When I do make calls, they tend to last pretty long. Without a goodybag, it would empty my airtime-credit.
Still, why would it hurt GiffGaff to keep it active until I actually use it?
That's all I was wondering. Jeez.

So you do use it!

A goodybag runs for 30 days, it's the same for everyone.

Yeah I do use it, who's denying that? And when did I ask that this would only apply to me? I know it's the same for everyone.
I've never used all of it, so I was wondering why can't it say active until I do. That's literally all I said.

Why do goodybags expire @sabri16898 ?

 

Because that is the nature of the product that giffgaff's business model supports.

 

Other providers offer "rollover" of allowances. If giffgaff were to consider offerring that, then they'd need to consider the financial impact. That could lead to a price increase (or a reduction in the allowances) to support such a revised business model.

 

I'm happy to continue with giffgaff and its current business model.

What the hell do you mean?
Paying for £5 goodybag - it has limits anyway. I simply said why can't it stay open until I run through it?
"you want to have your cake and eat it too" - what a stupid comment.

I swear this forum is just full of time-wasters cashing in on Payback with useless responses.

You said you 'barely used' it.

I was merely pointing out you might not be getting a good deal.

I'll happily accept any payback offered.
