Hey Community,

 

At Public Mobile, we're for you. We recognize that sometimes our customers' needs may change, whether you need more data or even a new phone. That’s why, today we're pleased to let our Community know that our friends at TELUS are offering a great deal exclusive for Public Mobile customers!

 

Launching today and available until November 18th, 2020, 11:59PM EST, Public Mobile customers are eligible for a $120 bill credit when they call in and switch to any TELUS Peace of Mind plan. 

 

Why TELUS?

  1. Got your eye on the latest iPhone? Get access to the latest, greatest phones at $0 upfront and device financing over 24 months
  2. Get 10-50GB high-speed 4G LTE data + endless data (that means unlimited data) at reduced speeds

How it works:

  1. Customers can redeem this offer by calling 1-877-689-8430 to initiate an activation on a TELUS postpaid plan.
  2. Customers who successfully complete the credit check will have their hardware (SIM and/or device) sent over to their address.
  3. Customers will port-in their Public Mobile phone number through their TELUS My Account once they have received their hardware (SIM and/or device).

 

Important thing to note:

  • A credit check is required to assess eligibility.
  • The customer’s Public Mobile account will be cancelled when the port to TELUS has been completed.
  • Please note that the customer’s Public Mobile account balance will not transfer after porting out to TELUS.

 

Sounding like a good deal? We’re for you, which is why we’d love to see you grow a relationship with our friends at TELUS. To learn more about TELUS, click here.

I like how this no longer shows up on the community's front page anymore.  Did they scrap the offer because of all the backslash already?


There's only so much room on the first Community page.  This annoucement isn't pinned either, but if Public Mobile want to remove the entire thread, they could easily do that.

Well they did come up with yet another flash sale.

I'm sure it was just a compliance "yes boss" thing. And then think "There. Done. I knew our customers would think it was stupid". Gotta keep employed donchaknow.

Costly "Peace of Mind Plan" and "True North Affordability" seem quite contrary to me.

Costly "Peace of Mind Plan" and all the reasons customers consciously chose this third-tier value provider also seem quite contrary to me.

 

But I suppose enough people must still keep buying it because Telus still keeps selling it.

I think that the True North Affordability thing is marketing.  The supposed goals of the federal government don't mean much to me if many of the plans have this logo placed next to them, even at the more expensive carriers, even when little or nothing has changed. And, if the carriers think that this is affordable, consumers are in trouble. I have the opinion that Canada has some of the worst wireless rates and plan prices in the world.

The True North thing is a little marketing. Mostly it was just lofty-sounding and utterly meaningless political promises.

 

No "average Canadian family" pays at least $4000 per year for cellular subscription. (Since the promise is that such an average family will save at least $1000 per year after 25% price reduction.)

 

And if they do pay that much ($85 per person per month?) then either they can afford it or they need a different kind of help than a toothless government mandate will provide.

$82.33 per month for each person x 4 people?  LOL. That sounds more like a goal by the carriers than what people are willing to or do spend.

Wish public mobile will also adopt the unlimited data (at reduced speeds) policy. Many services seem to have it now, even cheaper mobile companies too.

Most companies have unlimited data but there isn't really a company chaeaper than Public Mobile. Public is compareable to Chatr and Lucky and both of them have unlimited data. Others have unlimtied data too and usually costs more but  some plans include more data and faster data.
