Rather than these fixed value transfers it would be nice to have an option when transferring a number to transfer whatever is left to charity.


It is always diffiuclt t to plan what your final remaining credit will be on transfer day.


Is this an option?

I think Cancer Research is a great charity! Great idea to donate the extra credit.

We also have our JustGiving page that will take phone credit for various charities that the community has voted on and supported in the past:


On a less charitable note, I know a few online games take online payments through credit. For example you can buy points in League of Legends with credit. I think TFL has some plans to make it possible to buy tickets via mobile as well.

Is there a list of online shops that take credit anywhere? All I can find searching is that it is usually used for non existent things like game credits that cost 0 to produce so can sell for a big % taken by the network without losing out.

Wow, didn't know this, just let £8 credit gone wasted. Will keep this post in mind should I ever need it again. Many thanks!

Nice idea Smiley Happy

There are some here specifically the giffgaff ones that you could add?

In April 2016, I'm running the Plymouth Half Marathon to raise money for Breast Cancer Now, a charity that works to develop treatments and eventually find a cure for this terrible disease. I would be extremely grateful for any support to help me raise as much as I can: justgiving
