Welcome Present - 5 points, applied 1 day after
Loyalty Perks – 1 point for very month with PM. Very confusion – should this be recurring and how is this different from the recurring Anniversary Points.
Points-Back – 5% on indelible plans and add-ons.
Points-back Extra (Bonus/Promotion) – applied separately from the regular 5% points-back to eligible purchases within 4-5 business days.
Anniversary Points – “For every twelve months you stay with us, you’ll earn 10 points.” Confusion – you get 10 points every year or you get 20 points in the second year and so forth?
Give Back – 1-20 points for helping out in the community forum. As one said, you must be kind of full-time online helping to get 20 points.
Refer-a-Friend - 1 point every 30 days / active friend you referred. (point or credit?)
Refer-a-Friend Promotion/Bonus – applied days after. (points or credit?)
Minimum redemption of 15 points required to receive a bill credit. You will need to specifically redeem your 15 points through reward portal to apply to your next bill.
Pros and Cons of Points System
Fair to non-credit card paying customers
Cheaper to purchase add-ons using points
Very confusion. PM needs to specifically clarify some of those points by examples.
@hairbag1 This is not intending be a criticism about PM and what is offering. I have two lines - one line on old reward and a new one just switched back from Koodo. What I am saying is that PM needs to be more specific about some of the points or modify what they intend to provide as they go.
The old reward is well-defined but it is only good for those who spend less than $40 on plans with credit card payment.
PM, unless it is arbitrarily bumping up its prices, is the only provider that you pay less as you continue to be with it. Koodo bribed many old PM users, myself included, to switch over. Koodo has done a bell/rogers/telus decade-old-practiced trick, bumping up its price without notice.
It is very confusing, I know.
If you're considering a Public Mobile account, I'd suggest going ahead and starting the process.
PM only recently started the Points nonsense and everyone on it is confused. It seems to "evolve" as we go along.
Give it a try for a few months...you can always go to a different provider whenever you feel you'll get a better deal elsewhere.
