Well, you are in luck! PM can come very close to your ideal plan.

Skip this promo, go with the $25 plan (there is the permant $10 reduction) that has 1Gb and you have what you want, the only loss is the relatively small reduction from 1.5Gb to 1Gb of data.

@Berry23  I only partially agree with @AE_Collector . Yes the $25 plan ($23w/autopay +500mb to make it 1gb total) is a good deal and if your not heavy handed with your data and maximize data saving options and wifi 1gb of data is plenty. However if you take the promo into consideration then the $25 plan does not qualify and the $35 is a waste of money. The minimum plan to consider for this promo is the $40 plan. With autopay $38 and 5gb of data. More than enough for most people. The promo reduces it to $28 per month only $5 more than the $25($23w/ap) with 4gb more data. You have 6 months to play with your data, check app usage, track your usage, figure what uses a lot what doesn't, splurge a little when you're away from WiFi just test away. Then when the six months are up and change to the $25. By then you'll know exactly how to stay within your data limit and only spent $5 more per month.

Well they (Walmart) definitely sell sim cards if you have them activate it on PM.  No need to buy a phone! Do they even sell phones? I guess they probably do. Obviously PM pays dealers a fee for new activations.

Apparently my brain wasn't working when I signed up today! ha-ha. I didn't think of that. I signed up for the $35 plan.

Agreed, the $35 plan is a silly offering by PM. I never quote it to friends, just the $25/$23 for 1Gb or $40/$38 for 5Gb. If someone looks at this promo and the $35/1Gb plan, the first thing they should ask themselves is if they could get by with 1/2Gb less on the $25 plan. If so, this promo is a waste of time for them. The only logical thing to do is go crazy and get the $40 plan.

Not really, I'm referring to deals $35 and above. Smiley Tongue That is what this thread is about after all.

If I was going to spend $35 a month on a phone plan it would mostly likely be with a second tier provider because not only would I get more data it would also be at faster speeds.

 

Having said that, I said my original statement in a more sarcastic manner... give people more for their money. Taking away a percent for a short time frame to get them into it is not giving more to me, it's luring.

Hi @Tiana_V ,

 

I am a new member as of yesterday, and when I got set up at a kiosk they automatically set me at a $25 plan, but I would like to be on a $40 plan. Once my phone was activated I recieved this new offer notification. How do I upgrade my plan so that I can include this offer, since it I wasn't aware of it until after activating my Public Mobile account?

 

Thanks,

Mel

You are missing my point. If you want the $40 plan then fair enough grabbing it on this promo. But for the $35 plan unless the extra 1/2Gb of data over the $25 plan is a big benefit to you, this promo isn't really worth the effort,

Wal-Mart's wishy-washy policy on the sale of pm SIM cards makes no sense to me. The increasing inability to buy just a SIM card is slowly but effectively ruining their reputation. It definitely has a low opinion on this community's forum. Obviously they buy in bulk and if you can get them for $7 and even lower online then there is still a good profit to be made by selling them in volume. That is the basis of Wal-Mart's business plan. Sell lots of different products in bulk in a large retail outlet and catch many different retailers customers by allowing them to only have to shop at one place. Like McD's $1 coffee promotions....they make a profit by selling in volume but also make additional coin because a certain percentage of customers will then make an additional purchase of a muffin, apple pie or a burger. Wal-Mart is losing out on the potential additional sale of a SIM card only buyer who remembers they need laundry detergent, a bottle of pop or notice the sale on socks as they make their way out of the store. Instead of a happy customer leaving they have an unhappy or angry customer leaving vowing to never return and telling 10 of their friends about their negative experience. It is short sighted and poor retail sales/business practice.

The wireless departement isn't run by Walmart. So, while it may be against Walmart's values and Walmart probably doesn't impose certain rules upon the company running it, customers really aren't dealing with Walmart when trying to get a sim card there.
