So, as a recommendation to everyone, print this out and take to the Walmart or Wow Mobile or London Drugs, and tell them you want the SIM card, without activation.

Glad that this promo is back!!  See if I can get a few more new customers to teh PM side. 

 

I haven't heard of any issue from London Drugs not selling just the sim for at home activation.  I will have to stop by my local Walmart to see if they still have the sign up saying that due to low stock levels they can't sell just the sim without activation.

@Alan_K, SWEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTT, definitely an amazing promo and really happy to see PM bring this back, I had a feeling this would come back considering how popular it was.  Although I'm sure the MODS are preparing themselves for another busy month.  This is definitely a great promo and perfect for that back-to-school offer.  

 

@stonechucker definitely a great idea, I can only imagine the headaches people are going to go through if they don't have this handy.

I've found calling ahead is the best way to avoid a hassle - then you can confirm they'll sell you just the SIM without requiring activation before you show up.

Of course, when you show up at Walmart or London Drugs any day before Sept. 6, you might decide to activate there anyways for the in-store promo (free SIM + $25 credit + $10 referral credit). Smiley Wink

I would agree.  This promo seems to work the best for those who already have an account and wish to do self referral.  My referrals get free tech support which Walmart doesn't offer.

For new customers, the London Drugs/Walmart promotion (until September 6) still is a better deal.  

WOW mobile actually prefers to sell SIM only, instead of activations in store.  (Due to commission issues?)  Walmart is probably has the worse reputation for not selling SIM cards alone.

I can't believe how difficult it is to get folks with 'bundled' packages to switch.  I tell them about how much I save vs my old Rogers plan now 4 years ago, for a better plan now (and all current plans are better priced than the 4-year-old Rogers plan in Ontario).   

 

There are better ways to save money and costs on communication services - I seem to know only people who can't stay away from their all-in-one packages.
