Yeah except I have a referral looking for a free month credit because they don't need all that data.


 

 

I agree, it's unfair to those who wants to activate the $15 and $25.  It has been so many months and there are not promos for people who activate the more basic plans.

Why would they expect a credit ? Why not drop to a cheaper plan  or if  they think they might need it down the road just suck it up . 

I don't see why the $15  and $25 deals need promos . By the time you get a bit of reward and look at the addons you can't get a much better deal anywhere else ... the higher priced plans seem to need the promo to make them competitive .

@barndoor 

A free second or third month credit is a pretty standard promotion here sometimes excluding the $15  plan or both the $15 and $25 plans. But building up to black friday and the holiday season the promos get a little sweeter culminating with usually a free month credit and a 5gb data add on sometimes with a free sim card and the "more the merrier" campaign free gifts from pm should they choose to continue this holiday tradition.

 

Why shouldn't a cheaper plan get a credit? It's essentially a BOGO FREE. So one $50 plan customer trumps two $25 plan customers? Quality beats quantity? The more you have to spend the more you get for free? Sounds like the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.....like a Conservative's economic stimulus plan of tax credits, tax holidays and tax write offs. This benefits only one segment of society those who least need extra cash in their wallets and bank accounts while those who most need a break on price get diddley squat. Disposable income level should not be the basis for customer retention rather diversification yields a reliable steady income source over the long run.

 

Public Mobile should be cautious straying too far from their core values that is their customer base. The less they spend on their loyal and passionately enthusiastic, volunteer marketing, sales and customer service staff more has to be spent on real employees that can be 100 times more expensive, far less informed and have a much higher turnover rate than the worst provider's customer churn rate.

 

What has happened to Public Mobile's irreverent bi-monthly contests, innovative and inclusive customer feedback threads? Collaborative referral bonus drives? Unique marketing promotions that created industry buzz resulting in free advertising and kept their competitors off balance and scrambling to keep market share? Boring, bland and predictable is a good way of becoming lost in an ever increasing field of resellers and standardized plans.

What about customers who want to upgrade to this plan from a lower priced one? Is there a bonus or code that can be used for this? Several other providers are offering bonuses for back to school.

You are comparing apples and oranges.....those are postpaid plans requiring credit approval. Read the small print and you find that only strict adherence to the conditions prevents expensive overages and extra fees and the limitations on these plans and and there's the whole bad dog behavior problem you have to deal with on a monthly basis.

 

....on another note their referral program is pretty generous as it's based on your plan amount so good if you have a higher priced plan. But old dogs have a lot of tricks behind their collars...
