PROMO: $30 for 2GB, Limited Time Offer

**UPDATE**

The limited-time $30 2GB plan promotion ends Canada-wide on Thursday, September 17, 2020. 

 

If you have the $30 2GB plan today and want to continue with it, no action is required. However, if you switch to another plan you will not be able to switch back to the $30 2GB plan after September 17, 2020, as it will no longer be available.

 

For Public Mobile customers in Quebec, the limited-time 500MB data promotion will be expiring with the $30 2GB plan as well on September 17, 2020.

 

Edit made on September 14, 2020.

 

 

 

Hey Community,

 

Starting August 7th, 2020, we are offering a $30 2GB plan available for a limited time only.  

 

What does this mean for you? 

For a limited time, existing customers can change their rate plan to the following:

  • $30 per 30 days
  • 500MB + 1GB BONUS data at 3G speeds (per 30 days)
  • 500MB BONUS data when you sign up for auto-pay (per 30 days)
  • Unlimited Canada-wide Talk
  • Unlimited International Text

 

Important things to know: 

  • Bonus data will expire if account becomes inactive or the rate plan is changed
  • Previous promotions that have been applied to the account that have been indicated as ‘non-stackable’ will be removed when you switch to this plan. To see if a promotion you currently have applied to your account is ‘non-stackable’ please check the terms of that specific promotion. 

 

How to get this offer: 

  1. Log in on Self Serve
  2. Go to “Plan and Add-ons”
  3. Select “Change Plan”
  4. Select the ready-made plan “$30 for 500MB + 1GB Bonus + 500 MB AutoPay Bonus”. You will have the option of changing your plan immediately or upon the next renewal date.

@Catherine_T Thanks. . Point of clarification is it unlimited international picture (mms) text? Or just international text. Thanks. Stay safe.

Thanks for posting the details.

 

This is overall a good plan, but I wish PM wouldn't insist on splitting the data bucket into bonus components, especially the 1GB bonus which depends on the account remaining active. If a customer's account falls into suspension due to an autopay failure, they shouldn't face losing half of their data bucket because of a hiccup by PM's billing system, even if a moderator can correct it eventually.  Even beyond autopay failure, customers should be given some flexibility to allow their account to suspend due to personal circumstances, which could include financial difficulties, pandemic-related or otherwise.

 

As for the 500MB Bonus for signing up to autopay, I would think the $2 per month discount reward is already incentive to use autopay.

 

Just make it a straight 2GB.  Same with the other plans - whatever the total advertised data is should be the defined data bucket in one block, without "bonus" conditions.  /minor rant

Re: PROMO: $30 for 2GB, Limited Time Offer

I fully agree with @SD08 . It is a bit annoying with all the extra instead of just using it as a single block.

This means the plan is basically 30$ for 500 MB the same as the 25$ plan.

I can already imagine people contacting mods in frustration for some glitch on payment day causing their extra data to disappear (as mentioned above in case of payment not passing).

To me I see nothing but more extra workloads for mods and frustration to customers.

 

While I will move one of my parents to this plan, I will do it with the knowledge that it will be troublesome if some error happens instead of just change plan and never look back again. 

 

on a different note I hope that the  Black Friday 5GB one time add-on will not expire when the plan changes.

 

 

(and that was the second rant on the subject already, just my 0.02)

@zhadj030 

I don’t recall the exact details in the case of the Black Friday 5Gb add-on promo for new activations, but almost all of the sign up bonuses were worded to the effect that a plan change would remove the add-on. You need t find that wording because I would expect that add-on will be lost.

All the data bonuses make for a messy offering, but way better than nothing.  First time in a long time that existing customers are not left out.

For something to be considred a bonus, doesn't it first have to have been offered without the bonus?  This reminds me of talk of some companies saying that they only say something is on sale/special and show the discount if that product was offered at the higher price some time within the last so many months.
