Ran out of minutes...decided to upgrade plan...paid...Do I really have to pay again in 4 days?

Hey folks,

 

I recently realized that for the first since joining Public Mobile, that I had run out of minutes. Finding the Self-Serve options online a little confusing, it me a bit of work to get to where I could purchase an upgrade (crossing my fingers it would be effective right away--it more-or-less was).

 

Having made my payment (today, July 11th), I checked my payment due date is August 9th, but under My Rewards, it says my next plan cycle starts July 15th. Is this a contradiction? I am wanting to

1) not lose rewards and 2) not pay in full for partial cycle.

 

Can someone help me understand my position here? Will I be getting what I want (as above in #1 and #2)?

 

Thanks

The payment date is supposed to automatically adjust when your previous cycle ends.

You don't really have much of a choice.  If you wish to change your plan and have it take effect now, the full amount will be due immediately. While you will get a full 30 days (or 90 days depending on plan chosen) of the new plan, anything you paid for the first plan will be forfeited. The remaining 4 days will be lost from the old plan.

 

As for rewards, you won't lose anything.  However, the reward amount won't get applied to your new plan's first payment.  Those get added to your account balance after the plan change takes effect.  On the renewal after that, you will have extra reward to reduce your required payment.

Thanks--this is very helpful. 

 

Could I still ask for a little more clarification.

 

I still find it confusing that the payment due date differs from the plan cycle date. Are they supposed to differ--or is it just an "issue" as @RossN  said, that will clear up in a bit? I'd be very grateful for any clarity here. It doesn't seem to covered in the Knowledge Base Self-Serve Account Management section.

 

Much appreciated.

There's a known site bug going around for a while that causes dates shown to be incorrect.
