I signed up for the $25 plan a few years ago for the following monthly plan
250 mb for prepay
I have since earned 2 g holiday giveaway 2020, 5 g one time bonus
I logged in today and found that all the above are missing.
My $25 plan now consists of only 1 g data and I was just offer a one time holiday bonus of 2g.

@starrysugar As noted earlier the $25 plan has always only had 1GB data in total, although perhaps you might have been confused as PM used to advertise it as having 500MB plus another 500MB with autopay. Having autopay enabled no longer gives any extra data but you will still have 1GB regardless but autopay still gives customers (if on older rewards) the $2 discount.
There have been several promos offering 2GB bonus data for new activations, some were for plans $35+ and others included $25+. There were also some promotions that offered 2GB bonus data for
6 12 months for activating with a $25+ plan. The bonus data were time limited to either 6 months or 12 months period.
It could be that you activated on one of these promos and the bonus data has now expired. (not applicable here, perhaps) Here's couple of promos that PM announced earlier this year for plans $25+ and 6months of bonus data. One was offered in April and another in August, if you activated in August then you should still be getting the 2GB bonus data for another couple of months at least and, as suggested earlier, might have just depleted it earlier than normal for this cycle.
edit: clarification, the above promos offered bonus data for 12 months.

Again, my plan has now been changed to 1g data only!
12-03-2022 03:12 PM
They did not have any expiration/ The data was there month after month. Each month I do not even go over the data which is as follows:
2g monthly for the promotion when I signed us, 1g regular and .5 for auto pay. I have been a customer since 2017. I was such a champion of Public till now. My partner has the same promo, the holiday and bonus data are intact 1n his account.

If you used up your 2gb, 1gb that you have in your original plan for the month, and then jumped into the add on GB ...it is a one time add on, even if you didn't completely use it, so its like it has been used completely.

@starrysugar $25 plan always has only 1GB
The extra data you see could be just activations bonus with an expiry, which has expired
Open ticket with PM support and have confirm

Another possibility is that over time, you may have used up your Data bonuses. The bonuses are one time only and unused data does roll over each payment cycle, but if used up, the data add on disappears.
