I've been on Prepay Carry Over 19 since it launched and had built up a nice buffer of call minutes and data.
I also had a monthly auto top-up of $20 each month so I thought I was safe from losing my carry over.

Clearly my own fault that I missed that the fact the the Prepay renews every 30 days whereas the auto top-up happens on the same day every month and I've become so used to getting bombarded with renewal texts that I missed the fact that this month my renewal happened on the 4th but my top-up happened on the 5th so I lost the carry over.

Sadly I was only one top-up away from extra $1 each month being able to cover the renewal.

Is there any way I can set my top-up cycle so is matches my Prepay renewal cycle so I don't have this problem again?

I would imagine the only workable option will be to load $40 upfront and then a $20 monthly topup

My wife gets paid on two fixed dates each month and i can assure you that there seems to be no company that is equipped to align payment terms in line with these two dates unfortunately

I don't know about Vodafone

But on Skinny, If your combo fails to renew for any reason, The minutes/data stay in your account however they are 'Frozen'. They are still there unable to be used until you purchase a combo again.

I am surprised you cannot auto top-up every 30 days.
This is what I do on Skinny, and works well.

I have it so it tops up 2 days before the Carry over date just as a buffer

Our Prepay team are looking into options and hopefully will have some news soon.

Have you asked if you can get your credit back, due to it being a genuine error? Sounds like a hard penalty for a simple error. Eespecially if they don't appear to currently have a system that allows auto topups and they are working on adding it, as they know it is an issue.

I was thinking this today - can you get your money back on your pre-pay balance or is it stuck with Vodafone forever.

Just wanted to thank Johnr and the Vodafone team for helping sort me out for something that was a oversight on my part and that they had no obligation to help resolve.
