2.I am a Legacy customer. Am I eligible for these rewards?

Legacy customers are not eligible for rewards. However, Legacy customers’ referrals are eligible for this offer, and can receive a one-time $25 account credit.

Just an FYI for others:

I got my $25 referral credit 20 hours after activation.

 

Still waiting for the $10 off for 6 months. I presume I will only see it in my next 30-day billing cycle?

Sure, you can text them the link to the promotion or Publicmobile.ca.  Make sure they get the Sim card and take it home to activate it, not in store. They must enter your public mobile phone number for the referral during online (at home) activation.

 

Good luck!

Last night my son activated his account but he forgot to enter my number as his referral, then he tried to fix it by sending request. I bought the sim card and his auto pay is using my credit card number as he is 15.

Is there anyway for me to get the reward? Thank you

 

@Sbrown917 what do you want to know with update? Which phone do you have? And it's better to post your question in a new topic here...

No limit to the number of referrals; you can refer as many people as you like while the referral credits are $25 each.  The credits will accumulate in your account and will be used to pay for your upcoming payments. 👍🏼

Okay then.  I'm quite sure it was indeed an accident, so I've unmarked the post as solution.  Thanks for letting us know.


@poppinghad one of those the other day too. I see the green check and think what?! In the Announcement topic? An OP of the company gave a solution?
