used rewards for 1000 min canada wide minutes. When my regular minutes were used up these did not kick in. Is the idea that when I use up my canada wide minutes these add on minutes then kick in.

@cwickert Then it should kick in automatically every time you run out of the 100 min included in your plan. Are you currently out of the 100 min and not able to place a call? If yes, you will have to reach out to the CS_Agent team so they can take a look and see why add-ons purchased through reward points are not working for you.

Yes. If you're on a limited minute plan, the Canada-wide add-on is supposed to give you more minutes.  If you go into your Self Serve account, does it list those 500 minutes under Data and Add-ons on the first page?

@cwickert Do you see the 1000 min add-on in your self-serve account? I wonder if it was correctly added or not.

On second thought, I notice that you said 1000 Canada-wide minutes.  There is no 1000 minute Canada-wide add-on, although the account would show a total of 1000 mintues if you purchased two of those $5 add-ons.  I bring this up because there are 1000 minute long distance add-ons that are for calling other countries.  Can you double check which add-on was selected?

Do both add-ons show up in your self-serve account? Check the Overview or Add-ons page to see if it shows 0/500 twice or 0/1000 min remaining.

Do you hear an error messsage when trying to make calls, and if so, what does it say?  If you're not already doing this, dial a 1 before the area code and the remainder of the phone number.
