Wonder if PM is going to lower the price even further as Fido/Koodo has $30 for 20 GB. Koodo even has it for $25 on a second line. And that's for LTE data speeds...Those that are paying $40 in the big PM thread on RFD should be up in arms and push for the adjustment in price. We customers do not have ESIM, Wifi calling, have slower speeds, no call center, etc as it is.
We should also make a bigger deal on the $15 and $25 plans pricing now that data has become much cheaper. Like unlimited minutes on the $15 plan and more data on the $25 plan. Again, your sister company Koodo is giving customers 20GB for $25 on the second line... while us PM customer pay $25 for 1GB. Is there something wrong with this picture?
Chatr has $20 for 15GB but it's not a deal as they tend to jack up price. Still, initially it is half of what PM charges for the $40/15gb plan
Not trying to complain, time for PM to be more competitive though!
Pm is 3g as well until recently. The $25 plan is 3g. We all know you can lower costs just as others can with Koodo. Have to compete though, the recent popular $40 15gb plan is no longer competitive. $25 for 20gb on a second line vs 1gb at 3g via PM is not competitive either. Be nice to see a little more on the $15 and $25 plans. PM does have the $35 20 gb plan now but it is for new customers only. We are seeing confirmation on the Fido deal that existing customers are able to get the deal as well.
Koodo and PM are the same so yes, PM knows about the promos. the higher tier will usually have the better promos during this time. PM has never really been competitive apart from the last 3 months. what brought me to PM was knowing that there was no customer support, it is a DIY service and I would be able to lower the cost of my bill. imo if one isn't willing to take advantage of the rewards, there are much better companies than PM. and since the new introduction of the new points program it gives customers little reason to stay.
chatr is 3g, probably the reason they are making it cheaper.
All good. That would be up to the marketing dept. No use speculating or demanding this or that. Just asking nicely...Carriers are doing things differently. As mentioned Fido gives you $5 off for the second line, have not confirmed the additional 1000 min LD bonus while Koodo at Mobile Klinik is giving a $100 in store credit on the same $30/20GB plan. Koodo also does rollover, referrals, etc so they have their own perks...PM could do their own take on the promo if they so choose. Attached are the pics I have so far.
Not going to nitpick. Made the thread, I'm sure the big wigs will see it if they don't already know the promos from other carriers already. We'll see what they want to do if anything. However I'm sure most customers paying $40 for 15GB would prefer $30 for 20GB. Yep there's rewards and perks with PM which is nice but most would agree that's quite a bit more with Fido/Koodo for quite a bit less.
No complaints there. The legacy rewards is suppose to be better than the new 3x rewards but that's up for debate. The add ons and bonus data and minutes is a nice touch from time to time. However most customer are on PM due to price. When the marketplace changes and the sister company has much lower prices then we can hope for better.
So you have 15 months to shop if a better plan comes along. I don;t think there is such a thing as permanent. PM did attempt to eliminate the old $120/90 days promo until customers complained.
They have raised the price on a legacy plan: Important: Effective April 28 2022, the price of legacy plan $10 for 50 Minutes and 50 Texts will be increased to $13. So PM has and can change pricing, in fact the 15 months guarantee I see as an advantage, not a negative because you get guaranteed pricing for 15 months.
It's all good, just making PM aware what's going on in the marketplace. PM is a no frills, low price service so they probably will come up with something to match the competition (hopefully). Unless that competition is limited to Lucky Mobile. Not seeing much for plan promos on the Bell side so far.
