There are ways around that.  Sign up to Amazon Prime 30 day trial, await next day shipment of Public Mobile sim card, and then cancel Amazon Prime membership before you get billed for it.

 

If don't want to have to do that, the old fashioned ways of purchasing in-store or through the Public Mobile website are still available.

 

There are times when a customer might want to add a sim card to an order shipped by Amazon to bring the order up the $35 mark for free shipping.  For those times, I'm curious which warehouse Amazon will be shipping out of, or if the sim cards will be scattered throughout the country.  Amazon free shipping (non-prime) shipping times can be all over the place, but there are time that these types of orders are shipped on the same day as ordered, and if shipped from a local warehouse could still arrive next day even without Prime.

You might also be able to combine your order with something that hasn't been released yet to get over the free shipping threshold. Like you order a SIM card and then Avengers Endgame (which doesn't come out until August).  Then cancel the order once the SIM shipps but before Endgame is released. I have heard this works for add-on items, not sure about free shipping.

 

Or you could just make friends with someone who has prime, and get them to make the order for you. A prime member can order something and have it shipped for free to someone else's address.

I was really just joking about the frequent complaint about the ridiculous amount and size of packaging from Amazon. Then the box is full of wrap and air pillows. Thought a little tiny sim card in a huge box was a good visual!

Another idea that would help increase PM accounts would be to just offer FREE Sims. By offering free Sims sceptical persons would be able to try out PM and consequently discover that it's a great service equal to the best of the rest.


PM used to offer free SIMs but they stopped that in late 2016 because they found that only 35% of SIMs were getting activated.


35% is a very acceptable return --- just imagine if you were selling a product and in response to a mailing of inexpensive plastic cards 35% of your target customers bought your product or service -( in other words 1 out of 3 persons you contacted bought your product) -- you would get rich!

That does sound really good. For people who were around in the 90's imagine if 35% of all those AOL cd's distributed actually got people to sign up.  I don't think AOL had anywhere near that success rate and their free discs were considered a success.

Unless you believe that there will be a special price on the Prime membership on those 2 days, I can't see that really making difference when it comes to ordering a sim card.  The first 30 days of Amazon Prime are free and customers can join or cancel any time.  And, if you're going to wait around for Prime Day, I'm sure Public Mobile can get you a sim card before that if your order from publicmobile.ca.
