Re: Black Friday deals

I got this text from PM about an hour ago:

 

"Need a new phone? Our friends at Koodo have awesome Black Friday deals right now like $530 off the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE at $0 upfront with the Tab. Skip the connection fee and get $120* in bill credits since you're with Public Mobile. Use promo code... at koodomobile.com.

 

*Eligible on plans above $40. Credits applied as $10 off for 12 mo. Offer not stackable with other promotions like bonus data."

 

Did anybody else get a text like this? I'm currently on a $25 plan.


Public Mobile's idea of a Black Friday special is to get customers to switch to Koodo?

What is Public Mobile's primary objective ...

Constantly attempt to acquire new customers?

Or constantly attempt to migrate existing customers up to the next tier of the Telus revenue chain?

 

Are they an independent business able to assert their own goals? Or are they merely a Telus department - a Telus marketing brand - headquartered in the Telus tower?

@Korth  I believe they are a department of Telus, who's objective is to compete with lucky and chatr and drive people towards Telus and Koodo once plans offered are no longer suitable.

I do not believe that either Koodo or Public are business entities but are rather only trademarked brand names. The only difference with Public Mobile is how it used to be a seperate company.

Yeah, what you say essentially agrees with my own observations and conclusion.

 

I was half-hoping Mods or Oracles might attempt to say something "official" to convince me otherwise, lol. I guess that means we're all brand-ambassadors for Telus in disguise.

Re: Black Friday deals

Received yesterday but don't see a FE version. Also it appears my 25$ plan won't work? 

Can someone show me the phone and if being on a 25$ plan excludes me from the deal. 

 

Me, Public Mobile here. Need a new phone? Our friends at Koodo have awesome Black Friday deals right now like $530 off the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE at $0 upfront with the Tab. Skip the connection fee and get $120* in bill credits since you're with Public Mobile. Use promo code P2KBLACKFRI + validation code 1xxxxxxxxxx at choosehappy.koodomobile.com/brightfriday.

*Eligible on plans above $40. Credits applied as $10 off for 12 mo. Offer not stackable with other promotions like bonus data. Reply 'unsubscribe' to opt out of Public Mobile offers and deals.

Re: Black Friday deals

@mrbojsza  You must be, or become, a Koodo customer to purchase one of their phones.

Re: Black Friday deals

Yup your absolutely right. I get a lot of marketing phone calls from Telus at home & every-time I tell them I am already kind of with you guys. I let them know I am with Public Mobile which immediately quiets them. They have verified that Public Mobile is their sister company & always tell me that there is no way they could give/offer/match a better deal than the one I have with Public. In fact they always seem quite surprised as to my plan details & prices we pay for the plans with Public Mobile...in a good way. For now, my family will be staying with PublicMobile😁
