A real bargain that pays you back.

Postby Trashcooky » January 3rd, 2014, 12:08 am

:geek: I joined giffgaff last year and I have saved myself a small fortune :shock:

"giffgaff" is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) which operates on the back of the 02 mobile service.
It is the least expensive UK mobile network provider I have ever found and I do like a bargain.
In fact last year I earned more money that I paid for the service by simply being helpful on the "giffgaff" forum in helping other members out with their problems. Have a look at this video to get an idea how it all works.



I was attracted by the "giigaff" £12.00 (30days) goodybag which gives me calls and texts and a TRULY UNLIMITED mobile broadband service with absolutely NO FAIR USE POLICIES great for keeping up on the move away from home WIFI. "giffgaff" text and call charges are also the cheapest I have seen in the UK and they have attractive finance deals on new sim free phones too.
Great UK prices

Compare "giffgaff"per minute prices with those of other networks.

giffgaff.................10p
O2.......................25p
Vodafone...............25p
Orange..................25p
T-mobile...............30p


Compare the Pay As You Go market - Compare Pay As You Go tariffs

T-mobile.............. 35p...............................14p............................£1 a day(Fair use of 500MB/month)

*Mobile internet is charged at no more than 20p a day (up to 20MB). If you go over 20MB, you'll be charged extra at 20p/MB.

**O2 charge 5p after the first 3 minutes per day if you are calling another O2 number or a landline.

Good, but not quite Carling!


Check out WhiteMobile they beat giffgaff - Me and the wife have it and we get Free calls and text to each other as well, (in fact that applies to any calls & text between White Mobile users) - Between us in the last 6 months we have spent £10 and we both use data a lot when out and about too :geek:

P.S.
The only deal that beats the above on PAYG is on Three with their 123 deal

Hi Charlie, giffgaff to giffgaff is also free.
I earned £109.00 in pay back for an expenditure of £36.00 paid direct into my PayPal account.
I tend to be a broadband super-user as I watch TV catchup whilst Christine goes shopping and I stay in the car, no fair use policy and no limits. Maybe its not everyone's cup of tea but for a few visits to to the help pages there is money to be made.

I see that whitemobile run on the back of T mobile so unless you are with T mobile or Orange you need to unlock your phone. Rather like giffgaff running on the back of 02. Maybe not Carling but a definite Calrsberg - lol.
