Re: FLASH SALE! Get your next 30 days of service for $0!

That seems to me and it's worth a try....because when I signed up my boyfriend on the $10 off $40+ plan by August 21st London drugs had a free SIM card with in store activation and he was given a free SIM card and I had been successful in them retroactively price matching my SIM card for free based on the on going(online advertised) free SIM card with in store activation and the purchase of a plan at go mobile repair in Vancouver. So in theory both Wal-Mart and London drugs in the Vancouver area should price match a free SIM card according to their price match policies.

That means on a $60 Plan you could save $82 and on a $25 Plan a whopping $47!!!!

Plan credit+$10 referral+$10 free SIM card+$2autopay....thats a stinking deal!

Just one more reason why I wish they had London Drugs in Ontario.

You have Wal-Mart what you have to do is find a retailer in your area offering a free SIM card with in store activation and Wal-Mart will price match it.

Ok so in market means only what public mobile offers its customers in house versus a retailer that offers a free SIM card on activation and purchase of a plan.


In market just means the current plans / promos PM has.  For this promo if you do not activate online, you have to activate with those retailers listed.  These places specifically only :

  • Walmart
  • London Drugs
  • The Mobile Shop
  • WOW! mobile boutique
  • Select Koodo Authorized Dealers

It could be possible that some of these dealers may also give a free PM card upon activation -- that would not affect this promo and you would get both


Acivation does not specifically have to be done at those stores.  It can be done anywhere that offers the service.  Even if it's just someone who runs a small business out of a home-office or a corner store that offers Public mobile sim cards, new customers can still get this promo since places that aren't those above branded stores could just use a standard internet connection to activate your service.  When a promotion is online and in-store, that really means activation anywhere possible.  Public Mobile does have some agreements with some people and businesses other than those listed retail locations to promote the brand and services.

But the promo says "these places specifically only" and then lists the retailers.

It really doesn't matter when it says in-store OR online. Sometimes these promos stipulate in-store only or online only. This is both. So it doesn't really matter. They're just the standard list of stocking retailers.

Ok cool....in that case " Go Mobile Repair" on West Broadway near Cambie in Vancouver. Open Saturday 10 - 6. Closed Sunday. They offer a free SIM card with in store activation and the purchase of a plan. They have used phones with good warranties. Check them out online. Don't know them, never been there (want to though) not affiliated with them at all but they're 3 blocks from London drugs and I'm pretty sure they won't screw it up like London drugs has already. Go little guy!

Re: FLASH SALE! Get your next 30 days of service for $0!

I just signed up (just after midnight, Sep 7).
I used a refferal code (10$ was not yet applied)
and the RBC checkout code (that worked fine)
Is there anything i need to do to get the FLASH SALE (as it says it is stackable) or will it, and the $10 refferal be applied within 3-7 business days with no action?

That's only because this promotional was originally going to be an in-store only promotion. When it's online or in-store, that means activation can be from any activation channel.
