If this is unlimited, what’s  stopping someone from buying and activating 10 or more SIM cards to reap the referral credits (25 - (10*tax) per activated SIM card.  Any flaws in this theory?

ironic that someone just asked that

 

When you activate all 10 of these sim cards, you would also have pay for 10 plans in addition to the cost of the sim cards.

 

On rfd, someone said he was going to activate a bunch of extras and then throw the sim cards out.  I can't believe people are so out in the open on how this can be done.

 

Remember that Public Mobile surely has a clause that they can discontinue a promotion at any time.

Doing this yourself would net you 2 - 4 dollars each after tax out of pocket. Not terrible and certainly easier than the community reward.

Remember you buy the $10 SIM and the base $10 plan and your taxes. And a unique email address for each as well. 

 

Edit: thought of this on the drive home...And the $1 per referral for the next renewal which would then stop upon not renewing the temporary accounts

I'm pretty sure that the $25 credit is equivalent to a $25 top up.

I was trying to do all the math of what one has to spend to get the $25. In AB $10+$10 = $21. $4 profit then the one time $1. $5

At 15% $10+$10=$23. $2 profit then the one time $1. $3

It's rather more profitable if someone else pays for the sim and plan. But it is a pretty easy $3.

 

Edit: I'm talking about spending your money...not saving that which is not spent.
