Hey Community,

 

Effective December 15, 2018 until December 31, 2018 at 11:59PM ET, we are offering a SIM card and your next 30 days for $0 when you activate a 30-day plan in-store at participating retailers! This will be applied as an account credit and the offer is available to new customers only.

 

How to Get this Offer:

  • 30 Days for $0: When you activate a Public Mobile SIM card in-store at a participating retailer on a 30-day plan from December 15 to December 31, 2018, you will get your next 30 days of service for $0!
    • Participating retailers include:
      • Walmart
      • London Drugs
      • The Mobile Shop
      • WOW! mobile boutique
      • K-Mobile
      • Select Koodo Authorized Dealers
    • The credit value that you will receive will be equal to the price of the rate plan on which you activated your SIM card. This credit will cover the rate plan cost only. It will not cover additional costs such as Add-Ons.
    • Eligible customers will be credited the 30-day rate plan amount within 30 days. These credits will count towards your next plan renewal.
    • For example, if you sign up on our current $35 for 1 GB at 3G speed, Unlimited Canada-wide Talk and Unlimited International Text 30-day plan, your account will be credited $35 within 30 days of activating.
    • Eligible customers will receive a confirmation text message shortly after the credit has been applied to your account. These details can also be found by signing in to your Self-Serve account.
    • You will not need to top-up your account at your first renewal date, unless you purchase Add-Ons, change or future-date your plan to a more expensive plan during the first 30 days. Note that, if you have registered for AutoPay, you will continue to receive your $2 AutoPay reward every 30 days. All Reward rules, which can be found at publicmobile.ca/rewardrules, apply.  
  • $0 SIM Card: SIM cards will be $0 when you activate in-store only at participating retailers.

The expiry date was Jan 1 at 11:59pm on the public mobile home page. They are not giving the 30 day credit to those who activated on Jan 1. Of course the home page showing the Jan 1 expiry date has now been removed. Complete false advertising and bait & switch by PM!

This page still has some evidence of the Jan 1 expiry:

It does say "December sale"- why would someone wait until Jan 1 to sign up and then act suprised that the sale is over?  More "snooze you lose" than "bait and switch." IMHO.

so get penalized for reading the fine print? damned if you do and damned if you don't? screw the customer

@Bcde4321, when don’t you read the fine print?   If you’re a smart consumer, you always read the fine print.

 

Do your research, spend wisely.

Seeme like mods have gone completely silent on this issue. Completely unethical company. There's no way I'm recommending PM to anyone if this is how they handle promotions.

You can still file a formal complaint to CRTC as Public Mobile has breached the contract. In addition, they modified the website after the fact to determine customer eligibility for the free 30 day service.26495A3E-A808-46F4-8B1D-87DCAECB1E23.png

If I customer deciedes it necessary to do this, it isn't the CRTC who should be contacted.  They will not accept complaints of this nature from consumers.

 

It is the CCTS that would need to be contacted.  https://www.ccts-cprst.ca/
