PROMO: $35 2GB Plan Limited Time Offer

Hey Community, 

 

Starting May 12th, 2020 our current promotion of 500MB of bonus data on the $35 plan will be available in Self-Serve, meaning it is available for existing customers. This will be available for a limited time. 

 

What does this mean for you? 

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

  • $35 per 30 days
  • 1GB + 500MB 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. 
  • If you are already on the $35 plan and would like to receive the bonus data, you will have to switch your plan in Self-Serve

 

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 “$35 for 1.5GB + 500 MB AutoPay Bonus”. You will have the option of changing your plan immediately or upon the next renewal date.

It is a great offer especially at the present time  for current customers needing more data.

It would be better if they made it the same as the Quebec deal.

Of which we still don't know, beyond assumptions, exactly what criteria they use to decide that the customer is in Quebec. Particularly when wanting to port in from a different area code outside of Quebec.

On that matter, I disagree. I think it's a terrible offer.

 

I know that right now, there has a be balance of trying to get customers to upgrade their plans. Public Mobile likely doesn't want to make it look as if they're trying to captilze off of current affiairs. At the same time, the business can't stand still and do nothing.

 

Someone who's on a $40 plan isn't likely to go down to $35 and lose 3GB of data to save $5. At the same time, someone who is on a $25 plan isn't likely to pay $10 more to gain an additional 1GB, especially when so much more data can be had on the $40 plan. 

 

I see this plan as having two main downfalls:  It is overpriced and doesn't include enough data. That is solvable by either lowering the price or bumping the data amount up even more.

I was having the same thoughts as you but wasn't sure if it was just me. I actually went down to the $25 plan as I found 5 GB was much more than I would typically use. If there was a $30 plan for 2 GB I would more than likely move to it.

All that being said, I really like being with Public Mobile.  Just have to convince the Wife.😁

Yeah that’s why Quebec is very lucky for there limited time offer. It was $30 for 2GB of data (1.5GB + 500MB auto pay bonus) it’s on now and only for new customers from Quebec. But my goodness if they have that plan I feel a lot of people would upgrade there plan (as I probably will never downgrade my $40 plan I use too much data)

Re: PROMO: $35 2GB Plan Limited Time Offer

@computergeek541 if the rate is 1G for $25, 5G for $40 and $8.5G for $50. I understand there are other things involved here but lets just use this as a guage. 

 

25.oo plan is 1G = 25.00ea

35.oo plan is 1G = 17.50ea

40.oo plan is 1G = 8.00ea

50.oo plan is 1G = 5.88ea 

 

The saving grace is that its cheaper to move up to 2G then it is to buy an add on. 

 

I do think it should be between 1G and 5G if the amount is consistent. So 2.5 or 3G. 

 

And much of your deduction is bang on forsure.
