[UPDATE] Last day to get our limited time 4GB / $40 promo plan!

 

Note: The promo plan has been removed from our website; however is still available in the activation portal and in Self-Serve. 

 

We will be honouring the promo plan for all customers who ordered their SIM card between October 25th-November 16th, but did not receive it before November 20th.

 

Why the November 16th cut-off date you might ask? SIM card orders take 1-2 business days to arrive at your home, and Canada Post does not deliver on the weekends. Knowing that there is a lead time for SIM cards to arrive, we have temporarily stopped SIM card ordering until after the promotion is complete. This is because anyone who would have ordered a SIM card after November 16th would not have received their SIM card in enough time to sign up for the promo plan. We didn’t want anyone to get your hopes up and then be disappointed.

 

If you get a SIM card at one of our pick-up locations this Friday and Saturday, you will need to sign-up for our promo plan on or before November 20th. The promo plan will not be honoured for these customers after November 20th.

Hey Community,

 

Yes, you read the subject line correctly! From October 25th to November 20th, we will be offering an amazing promotion where you can get 12GB of data, unlimited province-wide talk and unlimited global text on a 90 day plan for only $120. This equates to 4GB each month for the low, low price of $40 every 30 days. If there was ever a time to get friends and family to join Public Mobile, now would be it!

 

Check out the full details below to see how you and your friends and family can sign up for this awesome plan!

 

Things you need to know

 

  • This is the only promotional plan during this period. No other plans are affected
  • During the promo period, there will be two plans totaling $120: (1) the 6GB unlimited province-wide talk and global text plan and (2) the promotional plan, which has 12GB of data. Please be sure to choose the plan with twice as much data for the exact same price!
  • If you have signed up for the promotional plan, you will be able to keep it after the promo period, as long as you are an active customer. This means that, as long as you are an active customer on this plan, your plan price will remain at $120, even after your initial 90 days. No surprises. 

Getting the plan

 

Pick & Pay Customers

 

If you are an existing Pick & Pay customer and are interested in taking advantage of the promo plan, you have two options:

 

  1. If your plan ends during the promo period: You can sign up for the plan in self-serve, as you normally would to change your plan
  2. If your plan ends after the promo period: You can future date a rate plan change during the promotional period, and have the promo plan take effect after November 20th. For example, if you’re currently on a 90 day plan that ends on November 28th, you will be able to sign into self-serve anytime between October 25th-November 20th and future date the promo plan to take effect upon your existing plan’s completion. Come November 21st, you would no longer be able to future date the promo plan.

This means that everyone has the option to take advantage of this great deal, regardless of when your existing rate plan ends. 

 

Legacy Customers

 

If you are a legacy customer who is interested in having this promo plan, you will need to call into the call centre and upgrade to the Pick & Pay plan. Please note that, once you switch to a Pick & Pay plan, you will be unable to switch back to your old plan and will lose access to the call centre.

 

 New Customers: You want to join because the grass is really greener over here

 

As a new customer, you can add the promo plan when you are prompted in the activation process. You will need to have your SIM card in hand in order to activate, so please be sure to order it first!

Re: Limited Time 4GB / $40 Plan Promo launching October 25th!

Wow! That's a great promotion, nobody comes close to touching it. Well done PM!

 

One of the things I really like about PM is that they offer the same deals to everybody, not special promotions just for new customers. (And that's the way it should be everywhere, you shouldn't be penalized for already being a customer...)

This is a great deal.   Looks like I'll be making the move over to PM, and bringing my family along.

 

Quick question, will the new/existing customers signing up for the new 4GB / $40 Promo Plan be connected to the Telus LTE network or just the 4G network?

 

Thank you.

LTE access

Hi @majsiddiqui,

 

Everyone will be on the same LTE network.  PM doesn't throttle download speeds.  

 

This is a great time to bring in family and friends.  I will be doing the same.

I'm glad you clarified that it will be on LTE network.  The promo advertisement on PM main page prompted me to clarify, since there is no mention of LTE.  As you can see below it states "Want 4G data...".  I presume there was a typo?

 

Create Your Plan

Want 4G data, talk and text for only $40/month? This 90 day plan is available only until November 20, 2016.

Re: Limited Time 4GB / $40 Plan Promo launching October 25th!

Absolutely! The deal sounds amazing.

The promo text prompted me to clarify with PM. The promo text says Want 4G Data. Their last promo stated Want 4G LTE data. Better to clarify before than be disappointed later Smiley Happy

Re: Limited Time 4GB / $40 Plan Promo launching October 25th!

4G = LTE

3G = H/H+

 

But you are right, many carriers including Telus, do show LTE and then seemingly drops down to 4G for H/H+.

 

Maybe @Brooke_C can have this corrected on the PM homepage so it reads "Want 4G LTE data ..."

Re: Limited Time 4GB / $40 Plan Promo launching October 25th!

holy, that is a killer deal!  You're right, if ever there was a time to hook people friends up with PM, it's now!
