Just as a reminder, this flash sale is online only.
You can buy SIM cards at gas station.
Isn't everything on PM done online ? 😉
My first two activations were in store at London Drugs because there was no way that I would have figured out how to do it online....I barely was able to find out about pm let alone stumbling onto the community a couple of days after the second activation.....2 years ago tomorrow.
Can current users access this promotional deal as well?
This promo has ended. These type of promos are for new activations only.
The only way current users can access the promotion is to open a new account with a new phone number. Unable to port one PM number to another PM account. So, if you don't mind giving up your present number with its rewards, etc, then existing customers can activate a new number.
Only if you activate a new account with a new SIM, a new email and a new phone number.
@kellyharrell : And if you really like your number and are willing to abandon your current account with loyalty and referral rewards or balance on hand then you could port-out then back in to the new account.
For future. For now, apparently the promo is over. But YMMV.
Edit: thanks mimmo 🙂
Or wait for CCS to offer 40% off the first month activation bundle for the $50 plan. Get the unactivated shipped to you. Sit on the SIM card until around the holidays pm offers a free 30 days credit promotion with a 5gb bonus data add on. Activate your sim card with CCS. If there are international calling and bonus data add on gifts from pm under the proverbial plans and add ons tree in your self serve account make sure you "purchase" them for $0.
Try to time your activation for mid-way thru your regular 30 day plan cycle. Put the second SIM card in your dual SIM phone or a back up phone to act as a WiFi hotspot. You can share the first month of the $50 plan's 10.5gb between your two 30 day cycles (the latter half of one and the first half of your next one.) Schedule a change on next renewal to the $15 hopefully once you have recieved both promotions but more importantly once you recieve the 5gb bonus data add on. If you recieve both you can choose to suspend via lost/stolen to preserve your credit.
Unsuspend* and reactivate on the plan with data suited for your needs or the $15 plan w/the 5gb(2?) data add ons** and use them to supplement your plan data on your main phone account. Use the $62+ in account credits to pay for $15 plan when reactivating when extra data is needed. Add $5 to pay for your 6th month of the $15 plan's service. If you suspend for the maximum 89 days every time you can extend the life of the account to almost 2 years with 5gb+2gb?+2gb? of data add ons to use for your initial investment of $35 to $40+tax.
* You must change the plan first and choose change immediately then unsuspend when carrying a balance that exceeds the current plans cost.
**YMMV but 99% of the time you will keep the promotional 5gb bonus data add on despite the promo's terms and conditions. This does not apply to renewable monthly plan data bonuses... these you will lose 99% of the time if you change rate plans.
Simon cant help me, ticket creation is a 404 page. I feel better knowing someone thinking about me. 😜
Activated $50 plan on the last Flash Sale on 16/8 after receiving email code and still not received confirmation of 2GB of monthly data.
Email claims few days to receive the 2 GBs not 30 days.
Did I miss some caveat?
