after topping up with credit did you purchase a goodybag using the airtime you had just loaded?

You can also buy another goodybag to start a month later

You can buy another goodybag so it is ready to go when your current one expires - this is referred to as "queuing" your next goodybag.

Your "queued" goodybag will sit on your account, when your current goodybag expires, your queued one will take over immediately.

Please note: you can only have 1 active goodybag at any one time (ie you can't change your goodybag before it expires/ add a new one).

You can only buy a goodybag up to 8pm on the expiry date of your current one

Otherwise you will have to wait till around 8-9am the next day of your expired goodybag the day before.

*Its best to have one queued then it will kick in as soon as the other one expires instead of waiting till 8-10am the nxt day*

Or it's best to buy one before 8pm on the day your current one expires so they swap over automatically. - Where to buy a giffgaff voucher. - Complete guide to goodybags. - Buying a goodybag from existing credit.

You probably just topped up account and didn't buy a goodybag. I assume you don't have £10 to buy a goodybag now. In that case, you need to top up again to buy a new goodybag. Just follow the instruction above.

Sounds like you just put £10 on if you look on your account page it should show you your goody bag and any credit you have?

Also check the resepts sent to you by email.

Erm.... its not a contract, giffgaff is a pay as you go service.

The goodybags, you have to put on your account yourself. If you dont, then you will be charged as per the standard prices.

rhr easiest check. is to. dial *100*7# on your phone. if it tells you there's no goodybag, you did not buy one yet.

giffgaff works as pay as you go by default, then you can add goodybags on the top(and that "overrides" payg)

Hi mate, sorry you've made a common mistake, giffgaff's £10 goodybags DONT work like o2's rewards, they dont automatically add to your account once you top up, you have to BUY the goodybag WITH your credit.. Please see below for the full explanation

giffgaff is not a contract company
its pay as you go!
after you topped up £10
did you make sure to buy a goodybag?
as the goodbags are what will give you 250mins, unltd text and unltd internet
