Loyalty Bonus 5GB

Metallo1

Hi guys,

The 5GB bonus will be valid for 150 days, however, I do have a 1GB data add-on partially used and a 2GB bonus, also partially used.

I suspect that my existing 1GB + 2GB will need to be fully consumed before I start consuming the 5GB bonus, am I right?

If that is the case, then the 5GB bonus will expire without having been used, as I only use data for email, communicators etc. so data consumption is minimum.

Also, I have rewards that I earned during the past years with PM, will they be preserved with the switch to the new Public Points system?

Thank you,

Alessandro

Hi Maurelle,

Yes, but you went over the 250MB plan in order to start using the 5GB data.

Like you, I do not use match data on my mobile, which is why the 5GB are basically useless for me.


It's useless to 98% of the people who got it - being a budget conscious bunch (we wouldn't be here otherwise, would we?) it's more than likely that we're all on plans that fit our needs for best bang for the buck.

Before they slapped the 30day expiry onto data add-ons, we had a $15 that regularly used about 500mb in total. Besides using the holiday gifts, it was cheaper to buy a $15/1GB add-on every 4 months $15 + ($15/4) = $18.75. We changed that plan to $25/1GB (and waste half the data) because all of a sudden, in spring 2023, the monthly cost would have been ($15 + $15 = ) $30... If we change the account to the $15 plan, which is the only way to even remotely use some of the 30GB  expiring "loyalty gift", it will be taken away. Whoever came up with this?!?!?

turn wifi OFF and use your data for everyday web browsing. Use up your Bonus data watching the Canucks in post season hockey !!  🤗

Confirmed from own experience - the expiring "loyalty gift" is used first. (the 2GB add-on in the screen shot is the 2022 holiday bonus, the 10% were used when going over the 250MB plan data a couple of times last summer.)

Thank you for the quick responses.

That may be the case, but you still have to use your default data plan GB first, and since I hardly consume it all, the 5GB will not be used.

What was great for people like me, was the bonus they used to give in December, which did not have an expiry date. Unfortunately PM has changed many things in the last two years. 😞

Cheers,

@Metallo1  That’s the only good part about this the bonus data add on will be used first . And your non expiring data add on last

HI @Metallo1 

no, we asked agent and got confirmed after your monthly data are used up, the special 150 days addons will be used first before your other non-expiring data addon

For the rewards you earned during the past year, if they are in your account already as Available Funds, they will stay as available funds and the system will be used those funds for renewal first
