Giffgaff makes Hokey Cokey permanent

Giffgaff has finally made one of its most popular and certainly one of its best value “goodybags” permanent after trialling it for several months. The cutely-named Hokey Cokey costs only £5 a month and comes with a veritable truckload of benefits.

The Hokey Cokey has long been Giffgaff’s second most popular goodybag but they have delayed making it a permanent feature since it was first introduced in December 2010. Now they have made the Hokey Cokey into a full-time goodybag they’ve temporarily ceased the experimental “Giffagff Labs” goodybags while they work on bringing full Blackberry support. Hopefully new Labs goodybags will soon return to Giffgaff providing even better value.

In the meantime, customers can benefit from probably the best £5 monthly offer available in the UK. For just £5, Giffgaff users get 60 any-network UK minutes and 300 texts. This alone is worth £16.80 on Giffgaff or about £42 on most other PAYG networks.

But the special thing about the Hokey Cokey goodybag is that for every minute you get called, you get one extra minute absolutely free! This means that if your mates call you for a couple of hours during the month, you automatically get your allowance bumped up to 180 minutes of calls a month for just £5. And you still have the SMS allowance too.

We’re thrilled this incredible value deal is now always available with Giffgaff especially as we can offer Giffgaff SIMs with £5 free credit to get you started.

    Worth pointing that incoming calls which qualify to bump up free allowance must be coming from other network than Giffgaff.
