Does this mean that the usual holiday rewards will no longer be given? Will Public just stop giving old customers rewards cause of the new system? Unfortunately with the points system I can no longer recommend Public over other services like Lucky. It’s lost its edge. As it is, charging $10 for 1GB of 3G data was always kind of a rip off anyway. That tech is from the early 2000s! Guess that’s just a downside of living in Canada with our overpriced phone plans.
Other than the discount on add ons, the only other good things are tickets for potential prizes (which are about as good of odds as the lottery and not transparent) and if you have a plan higher than 40, you would be getting more $$$ than the autopay reward of $2 plus you get points for any add ons you buy as well
@brettster99 I think they might get quite the push back if they decided to force all of us on the old rewards system to make the switch. But if they do opt to do that in the future (perhaps another year or so?), then I think they're more likely to offer some goodies as a bribe first to get customers to voluntarily switch first.
@brettster99 There isn't anything good about the new points system except, perhaps, if you want to purchase add-ons at a discounted price.
Just don't accidentally switch to the points system either as there's no going back, Unfortunately, for new customers there's no such choice.
