Friendship Forever: Celebrate Your BFF Today with Our New Referral Offer

Spongebob and Patrick. Joey and Chandler. Cher and Dionne. What do all these duos have in common? They’re best friends! Why mention them? Because today is, in fact, National Best Friends Day! And, what better way to celebrate this day, than to announce our new and improved Refer-a-Friend Rewards.

Thanks to one of the amazing ideas we received from our Oracle team, between April 19 and May 10 this year, we launched a new Refer a Friend promotion, where:

  • You got: $1/ referral every 30 days for as long as your friend stays with us!
  • Your friend got: a one-time $10 account credit to offset the cost of their SIM card

 

Due to the excitement this generated, we are happy to announce that this offer will be made available on an ongoing basis, with no end date set at this time! For those who were hoping this offer may show up again (special shoutouts to @smp99, @jp2, @abouh27, and @denkom), today is your lucky day.

 

In honor of today, here a few ideas for what you can do to show your BFF how much they mean to you:

  1. Make them an awesome card from scratch. No need to buy a card from the grocery store, printer paper and markers will do just fine. The more homemade it looks, the more they’ll know you put time into it!
  2. Do their favorite activity together. If they’re a mountain biking fanatic, head out to a trail. If they prefer sitting at home and binging Game of Thrones, cue up a whole season and settle in!
  3. Get them the gift you know they want. You hang out all the time and they’ve been talking your ear off about that pair of shoes, so reach into your wallet and buy it for them!
  4. Being a bestie means immediately notifying your pals about great deals. Refer your BFF to Public Mobile so they can get a $10 one-time bill credit, plus you will get a $1 referral reward every 30 days for as long as your friend stays with us!! Trust us, they will return the favour!

Time to start rounding up those friends, right? Don't forget to tag your community bestie below! And, just a final suggestion: take that money you save and treat your bestie to brunch.  

FAQs and terms and conditions are below.

Refer-a-Friend Reward FAQs

  • How do I take advantage of the Refer-a-Friend offer?

As a Public Mobile customer you need to:

  1. Be a good pal and refer a friend to Public Mobile.
  2. Tell your friend that they need to successfully activate on a 30 or 90-day plan and, during the activation process, include you as their referrer in order to be eligible for the offer. To do this, your friend will need your phone number.
  3. Reminder, if you refer a friend you’re eligible for the $1 referral credit every 30 days for as long as your friend stays with Public Mobile.

Your friend will need to:

  1. Activate a Public Mobile SIM card on any 30 or 90-day plan at activate.publicmobile.ca
  2. Enter your active Public Mobile phone number on the referral page during the activation process. Be sure they enter your number and not their own.
  3. The one-time $10 credit will be applied to their Self-Serve account within 72 hours of activation. They will also receive a confirmation text message when the credit has been applied.
  • If I am referred and then I refer a friend or family member am I eligible for both sender and receiver rewards? Yes, you are. This means that you would receive one $10 credit to your account for being referred. Then, after activating with Public Mobile, you are eligible to take part in this offer as a referral sender. Learn more here.
  • I am a Legacy/ Pioneer customer. Am I eligible for these rewards? Legacy/ Pioneer customers are not eligible for rewards. However, friends who are referred by Legacy customers are eligible for the one-time Refer-a-Friend Reward $10 account credit.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, our Moderator Team can help you switch your plan to one that is currently available.

Perfect. The credit makes up for the sim card and makes it frictionless for anyone to try Public Mobile without SIM card or activation fees.

Excellent plan! This gives the referee, as well as the referer, an incentive for the referral program.

Re: Friendship Forever: Celebrate Your BFF Today with Our New Referral Offer

Does anyone know it can combine with current offer free sim + $20 credit bill at Walmart? I mean my friend the one I referred will get $10 credit from this offer + $20 credit bill when activated at Walmart before June 30, 2018? Thank you

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

Re: Friendship Forever: Celebrate Your BFF Today with Our New Referral Offer

Well done, Public Mobile! Referrals make much more sense when both parties benefit from the process. I will continue encouraging friends to join PM, and now I suspect there will be more who are interested.

Re: Friendship Forever: Celebrate Your BFF Today with Our New Referral Offer

Thanks to Public Mobile for bringing back the referral credit.  Smiley Happy

 

*** My FREE SIM OFFER ***  (Available until noted otherwise)

To anyone in Toronto/GTA who is starting a Public Mobile plan and needs a referrer in order to get the $10 referral credit mentioned in the original post, I will give you a PM SIM card for free.  So, you'll get $20 value ($10 referral account credit from PM + $10 value of free SIM from me) in exchange for listing me as your referrer.

 

If interested, please reply to me by private message.  Meet up in Toronto to pick up SIM.

What happens when there are two promotions going on right now? Does the person get to choose which one they want?
