GiffGaff - monthly renewable flexible contract – no more 24 months fixed contracts

Recommended Posts

If you are fed up with the incompetence of Vodafone, Orange, O2 – and the rest and being locked in for 24 months and having to put up with dismissive, mediocre and sullen service – then why not move to GiffGaff.

Some of the CAG site team have been using GiffGaff for a while now and frankly we can't find any downsides. Even if you're nervous about it, try it for a month or two. You can always terminate and go on to a formal contract with a conventional mobile phone service supplier – although I don't expect you will ever want to go back.

GiffGaff gives you monthly contracts. You can choose to leave that any time you want. You can alter your contract month by month so that if you are going away and you think you need less or more data or less or more call time, then you just set it up for the following month. There is an app which allows you to monitor your usage. It's all the flexibility that you ever dreamt of and the prices are excellent.

If you use this link https://www.giffgaff.com/orders/affiliate/cagger3030?utm_source=giffgaff&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=email-OBS005&ggCampaign=email-OBS005 to order your Sim card then we will get 5 pounds credit and so will you as soon as you activate your card. If you happen to activate your card before 31 January (not long now) then you will get 10 quid credit – and so will we. Any credits we get will be shared between any of the team who have GiffGaff accounts.

We don't often endorse a product – but so far they don't seem to be any downsides and we've been doing it for years.

Order a GiffGaff Sim card. It costs nothing. Activate it and the maximum you risk is one months contract. If you don't like it then dump it.

 

We have no special ties to GiffGaff and if you have any complaints then we'd be very happy to hear about them and to help you deal with them on our mobile phone sub- forum. We will treat GiffGaff just as aggressively as we do with the others.

If you look at our mobile phone services sub- forum, you'll see that we've had loads of complaints about all of the main providers – Vodafone is the worst – but to my knowledge, nothing against GiffGaff. Extraordinary.

Seems to be pretty well as good as John Lewis.

Smarty is similar, month by month plans with no tie-in.  No credit check either.  Smarty runs over 3, Giff Gaff uses O2 so the choice may come down to coverage in your area. 

We've been using Smarty in a Mikrotik router as our main home Internet connection for nine months now, it costs less than our ADSL broadband and gives 20meg download instead of 3.5.

I'm with Smarty and they've been great. They've got the best deal by far for 30gb of data per month for £10 (with free calls & texts). For that price you only get 6gb with GiffGaff. For me the only downside is no wifi calling but their non-EU roaming (important for me) is pretty competitive.

I've been with GiffGaff for years.  I can add straight credit for a PAYG service or buy packages which give me data when I'm away from home.  I buy what I need when I need it and don't  pay for what I don't need.  My needs can change dramatically month on month and the flexibility is a real benefit.  I save a fortune over being tied in to a fixed contract.

Yes, I suppose the real point is the coverage. I think generally speaking O2/GiffGaff has a better coverage but people will know better in their own areas.

GiffGaff callers can phone each other for free without having any impact on their minutes – and there can be very handy. I don't know if Smarty does the same thing.

Anyway, the site team on this forum are more likely to use GiffGaff and of course we will accrue some benefit if people subscribe to GiffGaff. They can try it for a month – and then move over to Smarty – and make a comparison.

It's that flexible.

It seems to me that the days of having fixed 24 month or 12 month contracts are finished. Only complete masochists really want to get tied into Vodafone or orange – or even O2 – (even though O2 supply GiffGaff) any fixed term contract is completely unnecessary.

 

Anyway, whatever you prefer, GiffGaff is doing this deal and if you use the link you will get £10 credit – so will we. When you've used up your credit then I don't suppose there is any reason why you shouldn't then move on and try smarty and make a comparison.

Just to make up for maybe treading on CAG's toes with my initial post, if anyone signs up for Smarty using the link below then both they and I will get a free month (the new member pays for a month and gets the second free).  I'll donate any saving that I get to CAG

 

 

 

Mods - if this is out of line then please feel free to delete my post.
