i bought a topup voucher and wanted it to be for 10 pounds goodybag but when i activated it, i just got charged as pay as you go, which im not happy about, i could not get internet or anything, i got charged to make calls and recieve messages, and now i had to go and top up with my debit card while i still have the voucher credit left in the phone , i dont need all that, can giffgaff not take the credit balance and charge me the rest of the outstanding balance so i could get my goodybag with the credit i already have in my phone?, someone please help me out, thanx.

You need to buy the goodybag with your airtime credit. Goodybags are not free.


Follow these steps to buy a goodybag with your airtime credit

  1. Go to
  2. Click 'Add to basket' under the goodybag you wish to purchase
  3. Make sure 'Pay with airtime credit' is ticked
  4. Press continue and confirm payment

The credit will be removed when the payment has gone through. GiffGaff will not let you pay half with airtime credit and half with another method. You must pay in full by one method.


You can also just use pay as you go rates, which are below.

No I'm sorry but you have to pay fully with either a card or credit.

You can't mix the 2 for payments.


However the extra credit is very useful for anything that isn't included in the goodybags and doesn't expire.  Smiley Happy

If u have not got enough left to buy a goodybag u can top up by card if you think ahead top up by £15 then you will have airtime standing to by next months bag so u wont have a useless amount like £9.60 , u will only have £4.60 for calls that are not covered in the bag ect

You need to use the voucher to buy the goodybag, so when you buy the bag, tick the box to pay with your airtime balance Smiley Happy
