I read a  forum post asking how long it takes to receive a Giffgaff sim, it's usually up to 7 days (it may be quicker) and sent out by second class post.

 

If you're impatient like I am you can usually find them in Sainsbury's local stores ( open from 7 am to 11 pm) They are probably on sale at numerous other stores also. They cost 99p each.

 

I do not work or have any connection with Sainsbury's apart from getting milk and chocolate from them.

Hope this helps.

That will be an old post. Or possibly, a new post where somebody has requoted old information. If you see it again, it's probably worth reporting to an educator so that the obsolete information can be archived.

 

For maybe a year, all giffgaff sims have been sent out first class. They usually go out within 2 working days, with a cut-off time (3pm if I remember correctly). So will usually arrive within about four working days.

 

Shops do provide a good alternative for those that need them sooner. There is also a thread https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Welcome-Join/Need-a-sim-posting-urgently-First-class-or-hand-deliv... where local members with spare sims will offer to meet or post.

That's interesting. I've never seen them on sale anywhere other than on Giffgaff.

@chazbot to clarify giffgaff SIMs are now sent by first class post so should be delivered within 2-3 working days.

 

Secondly the SIMs on sale in shops do not benefit from the £5 bonus credit on activation which is had by those SIMs ordered from member's affiliate links. Smiley Wink
