Re: Until Sep 22, get $10 off for the first 3 months when you activate on a $40/mo plan or more

i see that this offer expires Sept 30 so time is running short to order the SIM! Says to order SIM from PM but I wonder if that too isn’t necessary, get a sim anywhere you can. Only thing you can’t accomplish is score a free sim activating at a dealer who happens to be giving a free sim to activate through them. Of course, who knows, maybe you can fill in RBCREWARDS in the Promo box even if activating at a dealer! You can put in a referal code at a dealer, we know that works. Promo Code box may not work at dealer though.....no idea.


It's not so much about there not being a promo code option at retail stores.  It's about the fact that the the activation is coded differently as not being from a regular internet connection using the Public Mobile website. Public Mobile knows when an activation is done in store (and exactly which store did it).  Activating at retail would invalidate the RBC promotion.

That makes sense. Like the promotions not that long ago that had to be activated either AT a dealer or what PM called ONLINE which meant DIY at home (NOT at a dealer) but which led to endless complaints because the customer who didn’t get the promo said “It WAS done online, I saw him doing it on his computer”.

Here's the basics since I did it. Buy a SIM card. Activate online. Choose a $40+ plan. Put RBCREWARDS  in the promo box. At this point the price of the plan will reduce by by $10.

So if you chose $40 plan it will show amount owing as $30+tax. Pay with a credit card. Then register credit card with Auto Pay.. .If you want and finish the transaction.

Did you order your SIM Card from PM or get it elsewhere?

 

Just wondering if anything could go wrong by getting the SIM card from a local dealer instead of ordering from PM as the promo wording indicates. Of course if it doesn’t actually matter that you use an RBC Credit Card for the RBCREWARDS Promo, why should they care where you get your SIM card from! But, one never knows.....

As I was excited to avail of this promo for my younger son, on saturday (sept 21) I went to walmart (calgary SE) and they ran out of PM sim cards. Went to London Drugs and I bought the last one ($10.50). Went home and activated using the referral from my older son's PM account. As I was activating I chose the $40 plan and the website said that I only needed to pay $30. Paid with my credit card $31.50 (5% tax in AB). Chose a number and auto-pay and Boom! Account activated. SIM card worked completely within 3 minutes. Even APN setting were automatically loaded on the phone. Calls, texts and data all working. Self serve says balance is $2 (auto-pay bonus). After 30 mins, I ported his number from freedom. Port completed within 10 mins. Very smooth. My older son got his $1 reward. Next day, $10 was added to my younger son's balance (part of the referral rewards) and his balance is now $12. Self-serve says I only need to pay $18 for the 2nd month for Plan $40. Sweet ! Pretty smooth transaction. Thanks, PM.

If you remember I asked a million questions before I activated and took the chance on the credit card not being rbc. I bought my SIM card at London drugs.

We had a similar experience! I hope PM stays this affordable! We have never had such an easy transition from one provider to another! I honestly don’t think I’ll go back to any other providers! I love supporting companies who reward longevity with their customers, it makes you feel valued!
