This is an awesome promotion. Unfortunetly, I tried to inculcate my friend to switch to PM from Virgin and it didn't work well. She's paying the $50 plan for 4GB. 


@Joelkim   Your friend is paying $50 for 4gb with virgin? You couldn't convince her to pay either $40/5gb or $50/8.5gb? That's $28 and $38 for 6 months on rbc promo(+autopay)+ 5gb bonus data add on that rolls over and the $20 referral credit on top?


She is still thinking. I will hand this information to her. Thank you so much Smiley Very Happy

The amount she has to pay is over $5500 - bone grafting, implant, add a donor's bone to her left side or others.

Just remember both these offers end Sept 30th 11:59 Pm edt/est. Referral+bonus credit is easy just make sure she puts your referral code in the box halfway down the first activation page. Rbc promo  is as follows: activate online, choose any $40+ plan, put the promo code RBCREWARDS in the promo box on the "pick a plan" page. Once you do this you will see the plan chosen reduce in price by $10. Pay with a credit card. Set up autoPay to save $2 more every month. Here's the math:

$40/4.5gb+.5 auto Pay bonus (5gb)-$10rbc=$30(+tax) this is what you pay upfront. You will then be credited towards your next month $20 referral+bonus credit+$2autopay x2(This month & next)

$30-$24=$6 owing on the next month. First 2 months total $36+tax or $18/30 days months 3-6 will be $28/30 days+5gb bonus data add on that rolls over. Total for 6 months $148+tax that saves your friend a little over 50% off her current plan with 1gb extra/30days and the 5gb bonus add on. 

That's about 3% of her very expensive but very needed dental surgery every little bit helps to whittle away at the total...plus she saves the tax! Average $15-$25 depending where she lives.

In your Available Funds.

There are two terms in use here:

reward = earned rewards that occur each renewal and appear in the rewards area of the self-serve page (except community reward which gets reset each month)

credit = money deposited in Available Funds.

 

The rewards automatically get converted into the Available Funds at renewal.

@Alan_K  For convenience, I want to tell the person I'm referring to just go to Walmart to and activate in-store. Walmart is offering free SIMs for people who activate in-store.

 

However, this won't work for the promo, right? Because it says to activate online, as opposed to in-store...?

 

Not sure how it makes sense to add a restriction like that. Isn't Public Mobile happy to have new customers regardless of where they activate? And when in-store is offering free SIMs, it gets rid of the incentive for someone to avail of the promo because they'll be saving $10 on the SIM anyways.

 

If the person signs up in-store at Walmart, then I (the referrer) will only get the usual reward of $1 off per month, while the person I'm referring will save the equivalent of $20 (from the free SIM in-store—so the bonus doesn't actually make them better off because they'd have to spend $10 on a SIM to activate online and get the $10 extra bonus).

 

Is that correct or am I missing something?

If your friend activates in store and uses you as a referral, you're mostly one who loses out becauae you won't receive a $10 account credit.

 

Yes, the friend you refer will still receive a $10 account credit when activating at the store, but not the extra $10.  If the store isn't charging for sim cards, that's between that store and the new customer.

So it winds up being the same benefit to the new customer IF the dealer is offering a free SIM card which seems to come and go. Plus the new customer doesn’t have to Do it Themselves. Person making the referal doesn’t get extra $10 though. BUT, if grabbing the RBCREWARDS deal that also expires Sept 30, it too has to be done online (not by a dealer) and by the end of Monday (9PM Pacific Time) and has to be a $40 or higher plan for that particular deal.
