Any reason not to switch from $30 to **Special Offer** $25 plan?

Hi,

 

I have been on the $30 plan since around April.

  • - 1 GB of data at 3G Speed
  • - Unlimited Canada-wide Talk
  • - Unlimited International Text

Now I see there is a **Special Offer** plan for $25 that is essentially the same (but also includes International Picture Messaging).  I do have a $10 credit on my account, but I think that had to do with referring a friend, but I'm not certain.

 

Am I missing something?  Are there any gotchyas with switching to essentially the same plan, but just $5 less?

Perhaps you got into a promo for $10 per month. Depending on when that expires you could figure out if it's worth it to change down to the lesser plan and possibly lose the other $10 promo.

I see the $10 credit has been applied on the 5th day of each month starting in March and the last one was on August 5.  Is there a way to find more information about this credit like what it's for, when it expires, and will the latest one be removed if I switch plans before the next bill on the 18th?

@jrmYou can look at your Payment history for dates and the My Rewards for a detailed break downs of your rewards

iirc that promo was for 6 months. Perhaps it's done anyway. Change down to the $25 plan at your renewal on the 18th.

@jrm 

If I remember correctly, it was 6 months of $10 credit.  Then the credit will expire. Check your account.  

 

Once the credit expires, then you can switch to $25 plan.  If you switch below $30 threshold earlier, you will lose the $10 credit.

Thanks @GinYVR . The payement history was how I saw the credit on the 5th day uof each month.  I do see the refereal and autopay rewards uder 'My Rewards', but it doesn't say anything about the $10 credit.

I suspect it was this promo. You probably just got the last credit.

@jrm 

Since it was a special promotion, it likely won't show up in your self service account.  It is done automatically according to terms of promo.  

 

As z10user4 mentioned in previous post, your credits are likely done if you already got 6 months worth.

Thanks @Dunkman. I understand future credits would not be applied to the account if I switched now. Do you know if the current $10 under 'Available funds in your account' would also be removed before the next bill if I switched now?  It's only $5, so I don't care that much, but I'm just curious at this point.
