Thanks, I am so exciting, even better than last year 😀

Good question @kselmak , or even those accounts that are intentionally suspended.


Thanks PM !! 

OH, the anticipation that was happening wondering about this over the last few weeks have just been tantalizing!

they can't receive the text so they cannot reply YES.   


Also, I think it is fair that suspended accounts do not get the offer.  Of course , I think they can reactivate again before Dec 31 and then open ticket with PM to ask for it back.


On the other hand, those who are not in Canada but are still paying (account active), they have the right to ask for the bonus

Thanks @J_PM and PM for the free add-ons and the bonus refer-a-friend credit.


The refer-a-friend credit is a great promo to keep the new subscribers to stay with PM for at least 6 months.  For people who are sitting on the fence, it is a great time to move your family mobile lines to PM.  Use the first activation to refer another family member to get $30 and the new member get 6x$5.  Use the second activation to refer another family member for another $60.  Let keep the free money within your family.  


PM offer high referral credit for both referrer and referee was 2018 and it was only $25.  Don't waste any time to get your $30.  I manage 8 PM accounts.  I will be busy this month.


Edit:  misread the promo

What happens to those who are have a old plan includes: Unlimited Provincial Talk ​don't have access to their SMS but are still paying and active. Is there any other way they can claim the gifts,


i did try to go to manually enter Add-Ons Using Self-Serve Account there is have to pay not Free ??


I don't remember that there is a PM plan without any text message. Even my $10 50/50 plan has unlimited incoming SMS/MMS messages.  Did you use the build-it-yourself to build your custom plan back in 2017?

unlike last year, there is no item for the Holiday bonus in the Add-on Purchase page to select and "Buy" for $0



Did I miss something? Is the $30 bonus referral credit both ways? I read it as just for the referrer.



Thanks pm!! We do appreciate that pm appreciates us. The $30 bonus referral credit was a nice touch.😉Thx....for that one w/a twist!!


A couple of questions though.....some already raised.


  1. What happens if you have an active account and cannot recieve the text? If you are outside of Canada or the US and you will not be returning in December? Or returning after the text messages are sent out?
  2. Or like me who is still looking for my phone in my house and it has a dead battery.( I'm trying to avoid a sim swap?!!)
  3. What if you can recieve the text but can't text back? Like you are in the US without a roaming add on? Or you have forwarded your calls to a voip and are using wifi or a local sim card?
  4. Or like a few of my referrals who don't know how to text or can't text back because they don't have a working screen and simply use their phone for phone calls? Can they assume they got the text and simply reply YES to the short code number by having someone else put their sim card in a smartphone and reply YES for them?
  5. Do accounts have to be active for the entire month of December? Can a customer reactivate their service on say December 7th and still recieve the text? Or on December 15th and still qualify to recieve the text? Or reactivate and reply YES to the short code as long as reactivated by the 15th?
