I'm trying to get a full understanding of the rules about redeeming points for public mobile's contests and winning eligibility because of the following condition because the way I'm understanding this is that holiday pausing my plan for more than 30 days before the draw is done would make the entrant ineligible to win. I need to be certain that I won't be wasting a point for this draw since our family is planning a vacation before this draw happens and I wanted to pause my plan if everything goes accordingly. The problem is I will be pausing my plan for about 40 days before the draw date as public mobile service will not be available for my trip. I've copied and pasted the condition that concerns me about the jackpot entry. I don't expect to win but thought it might be worth one point to enter.
8. OTHEREntrants that are customers of Public Mobile at the time of entry and/or at the time of prize award must have their Public Mobile accounts in good standing (with a current account balance that is no more than 30 days past due) in order to be eligible to win the prize.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Darlicious, thank you for that information and I'm also wondering if I pay up on the day of receiving any such email which is unlikely I know, if that would count although I don't think it would from reading the rules. I have until the end of this month to decide if I want to enter this contest and might just decide to do a coin flip on the last day haha.
I can't be 100% certain, @statusquo , however I believe once the draw date has occurred, so long as your account was "active', you'd still be in the running, BUT you'd still need to be able to access the notification of being the winner, so.... if suspended you wouldn't receive the notification.
So only pause your account for 29 days or more importantly ensure you reactivate on March 30th/31st. The draw date is April 1st? You will be contacted no later than 7 days after the draw date. So those 7 to 9 days you will need to have active service. Try to time your suspension or reactivation to encompass those dates.
Sounds to me, @statusquo , that at the time of ENTRY and the time of ANNOUNCEMENT of the winner, the subject account needs to be ACTIVE.
Any time outside of those time-frames wouldn't disqualify you if your account was in suspended status.
Of course, that's just one interpretation...
