Not as good as the previous $ off deals, for some this might encourage them to leave their existing providers.  But I believe these promos should last a year that way loyalty rewards kick in.   


It would be curious to see how many people join for the bonus data then leave once promo ends... To keep customers pm needs to offer better long term plans / pricing than competitors else people will just bounce back and forth.

Thanks for the promo.

If you are interested in feedback, i have noticed that people are not that excited about signing up for limited monthly data increase as much as an extra add-on or monthly credit of $10. Nice 5g add-on, once i explain them for add-ons work gets people interested. Money definitely looks even better i noticed.

One good thing about this one is that it o like nice warmup for black Friday season. If you start high now you will not have much room to grow later and now you still give people who want to signup right now something. So in all pretty good strategy

I understand not including the $15 plan but in reality... giving someone 1.25 Gb of data rather than just .25 Gb for 6 months quite possibly turns them into a $25 plan customer after the 6 months are up. Would seem like a good strategy to me and isn't really a loss to PM, 1 Gb x 6 months = 6 Gb of free data no matter how you do the math.

Think you forgot the price of data add-on if any should need it? PM loss could be as much as $90. 🤪

It is a good promo for new customers ahead of  any promos that may or may not be offered for Black Friday.

Looking for the fine print I see this arrow to click on to see the Terms and Conditions. Clicking on it reveals that .... “Conditions Apply”. Good t ok now but.... (what are they). Is it an iPad glitch preventing me from learning more?





@AE_Collector  yup, that's a glitch, but not just because of your iPad.


It also says nothing on my laptop when trying to open it too, except "conditions apply"


Try clicking "Learn More", then go down to the bottom and then click the Terms and Conditions.   Now it will populate with lots of info.




That did work though it is all quite generic info. I was expecting the usual “Changes to your plan during the promo period will result in loss of the remaining monthly 1Gb / month of Promo data etc. But no sign of it.
