Anyone else recently been invited by GiffGaff into their discussions/desires to enter the FinTech market?
Not been invited but is there any indication what they’re moving into?
At present, account management, spend categorisation etc. Presume they are thinking of moving into banking.
I got an invite to moneyfit March and I know they’ve sent out blogger invites for another financial event, but I’m not sure what it’s about. I’m skeptical they’re actually creating a bank though? It sounds like such a bad idea
They offer free credit score/report, so they’re kinda already financially affiliated.
Definitely banking aspirations.
Mix of Emma/yolt with monzo marketplace idea
A mobile network that can’t even do mobile properly wants to make a fintech? What could go wrong.
They’ve become such a bloated mess. Sim deals, selling handsets, loans(?!) and they can’t really do any of it particularly well.
Anyone know who’s doing a comparable or better Sim to their £10 SIM goodybag? Preferably a rolling 1 month one or a short contract length. I want out.
Three or EE? They both have one month contracts and personally I think EE is one of the best cartiers (it’s still “legacy” and far from what it could be, but it’s the best we’ve got).
Besides that why not a pay & go with automatic monthly top-up?
I’d quite like to go with Three but they have nothing comparable to giffgaffs contractless £10 a month for 4Gb of data. Genuinely thought I’d get a better deal with a 12 month contract.

Until they screw something up and you’re stuck with an unusable plan. Never sign up for 12 months.
Just checked and EE has a 15£/month pack on pay & go with 5GB of data and data rollover. Three has the same but with a lot more minutes included if that’s your thing (personally I’d go with a SIP client and a non-scammy provider like Twilio or Nexmo for the voice part).
Ooo tempting. Thanks
iD has some good deals too.
GiffGaff the mobile provider? Did not know this. I need to start paying more attention.
Yeah, it’s pretty useful. I avoid paying for credit report where possible. I use TotallyMoney, ClearScore, Noddle, MoneySavingExpert Club, Creditwise, Experian CreditExpert and lastly GiffGaff money (https://www.giffgaff.com/gameplan/). I’d like to know if I have missed any credit report companies (other than the paid for services such as Equifax, Experian & CallCredit).
