Re: Sharing is Caring! Give a Gig, Get a Gig.

Well @Jeremy_M, I guess this is kind of a promo but definately not what many of us were hoping for.  This adds no incentive for me personally for recruiting as I am no where near using my data in my current plan but I guess it can help new members who sign up with lower data limits and need the addon.  For those with lower data limits this can be a great way to build a "bank" of data that doesn't expire.  I do continue to promote PM and actually have a lunch meeting this week with a friend to discuss the service.  I will mention this for sure but for me no additional incentive to push harder promoting PM.

@ShawnC13are you on the 120/12GB plan? Same here. I barely use 3 GB out of this plan. But I wish there was a possibility to give some of my Gigs to my referrals.

Re: Sharing is Caring! Give a Gig, Get a Gig.

is this replacing the $1 off per month referral?

Mayor / Maire

Re: Sharing is Caring! Give a Gig, Get a Gig.

@mech9t5, no this does not replace the $1 referral credit.  That is stated in Jeremy's post that you will still get that.  This is just  "one time bonus" of 1GB

@mech9t5 it is in addition to the referral credit.

It's nice to see both parties of a referral get a bonus.

Re: Sharing is Caring! Give a Gig, Get a Gig.

@ShawnC13, I agree with you, there is no incentive here that would make any of my friends that have not already taken on this service to switch.  One time bonuses are not enduring enough to be meaningful.  Now, if the offer was to add one gig to existing plans every 30 days, then we have something to talk about.  Last renewal, I was down to about 400 Mbtyes remaining on renewal day.  Windows creator edition update ate too much data.  I know, set connection as metered...
