Reward System

If I choose not to go with Public Mobile's new reward system, will I continue to get my discounted credits from like friend referrals? Or is Public Mobile going to discontinue this credit system for this newer reward system?

@raymondzhou122   have to tell you the truth, new is not as good as the old, mainly the Loyalty reward.

 

Here is the comparison

 

Overall, don't look, don't think and just stay on the old system  

softech_0-1656286965241.png

 

 

quick advise for anyone who consider changing:  If you are gone, you are gone.  That is a point of NO RETURN!!

 

 

in summary  

  1.  $2 Autopay is no longer there and replaced with 5% ,  you get less (but you get 5% for your other Add-on purchases as well)
  2. No more loyalty rewards, meaning the loyalty discount of $1/month up to $5/month will disappear. Instead, they will only give $10 each year on the anniversary.

    For someone with PM between 1st to 12th month
                  The old reward system will give $0 that year, versus $10 at the end of the 12th month with thew new system
    For someone with PM between the 13th and 24th month:
                    The old reward program will give $12 that year ($1/cycle), versus $10 at the end of the 24th month with the new system
    For someone with PM between months 25th and 36th:
                   the old reward program will give $24 that year ($2/cycle), versus $10 at the end of the 36th month with the new system
    .........................
    for someone with PM between months 61 and 72 (and every year after that after that point)
                  the old reward program will give $60/year ($5/cycle) versus $10/year under the new system 

  3. You can no longer apply $1 or $2 you got to the bill right a way, you have to collect enough to 15 points to cash out $15 in one shot
    Also, you have to remember to convert your points to dollars once it reaches 15 points.  PM no longer automatic apply the reward discount.



On the other hand, the goodies for new system,

- 5% Points back for add-on purchases as well

- add-ons are around 33% cheaper when you redeem with Public Points
- you can use 1 point for lucky draw, so, technically you bet $1 and can win an iPhone

HI@raymondzhou122 

 

If you opt out, you won't get anything then.  

 

Why you want to opt out the new one? The opt out option is just there for legal reason.  For people with religious or other personal reason that absolutely do not like to join any reward system.

@raymondzhou122   or you meant you are on the old system still and asking "what if" for the new system?

 

 if that is the case, you can keep using the old system.  No one know how long they will keep the old system , but will see.   For now and the foreseeable future, you are not forced to move to the new system

why is it bad? It seems pretty much the same as the old system. 1 point is $1.

@raymondzhou122 well for starters your loyalty rewards for after year 1 are 12 dollars a year ,new system they are 10, year 2 old sytstem 24 dollars new system 10, 3rd year 36 new sytem 10 and so on up to 5 years the 2 dollar auto pay is replaceced by 5% of you bill so its a bad deal you also need to collect 15 reward points to cash them in

Thanks and so is the only reward for autopay with the new system 500 mb? The 5% will be applied regardless of autopay or not?
