A Beginners guide to earning money with GiffGaff
Around 18 months ago I decided to ditch my mobile contract with Vodafone. I was paying £35 per month and for that I got my phone and small amount of calls, texts and practically no internet. It was getting near to my contract renewal time when someone told me about giffgaff. giffgaff is a low cost mobile phone network that runs on the O2 network. You can either choose to pay as you go or pick one of their monthly goodybags. The goodybags range from £5 per month up to £18 depending on how many calls, texts and internet you require. The goodybag I use it quite popular, its £10 per month and you get 500 UK minutes, unlimited UK texts and 1GB Internet. With giffgaff you also get free calls and texts to other giffgaff numbers as long as you have topped up at least once in the last three months. It makes it really cheap if you manage to get your friends and family to sign up! So I am already saving £20 per month compared on my old contract and there is before you include payback. Payback is giffgaff’s points system where you earn points for recommending friends and helping out on the giffgaff forum. Each point is worth 1p so 500 points is £5.
So this is where it gets interesting and you can start earning money with giffgaff. For every person you get to join giffgaff you get 500 payback points, this converts to £5.00 (Your friend will also get a bonus of £5 credit when they first top up with £10). There is no limit on the number of people you can get to sign up. The highest earner of payback actually earned over £16000 in 6 months!
Even if you don’t know lots of people and find it difficult to get friends to sign up, there is still a way for you to earn up to £30 per month just from using the giffgaff community forum. Now the way payback is currently worked out is a bit of a mystery but it’s said to be worked out on quality of forum posts rather than the number of posts.
There are 5 payback bands:
Band 1 – 3000 points – £30.00
Band 2 – 2000 points – £20.00
Band 3 – 1000 points – £10.00
Band 4 – 100 points – £1.00
Band 5 – 10 points – £0.10
