Bundles last one calendar month from the date of purchase. Think of them as monthly bundles, with a few days added to cover delivery timescales. If you purchase your first bundle online with your Pay-as-you-go SIM, this will last 35 days to give you some extra time to use it once it arrives in the post. Any bundles then purchased afterwards will only last one calendar month.

It all depends. Both have their advantages.
With a bundle, you know the exact amount of minutes, texts and data you’re getting. So if you generally use your phone in the same way from month to month, it could be the right choice for you.
Topping up your credit gives you a bit more flexibility, as it can be used for lots of different things. You can use it to makes calls, send texts and use data, as well as roaming when you're abroad, and using premium features. You can also purchase bundles with it.
