Yes you can.
You can set a maximum limit of money that you wish to spend on messages per week. Once this limit is reached, we will not send you any further messages that week.

The count will be refreshed every Sunday night 11:59 P.M. GMT and there will be no carry forward incase you have some balance amount left.
