Re: New targeted offer for some current clients!

I received the text for 2GB for $10 and am currently on the $15 plan. However, I'm hesitant to accept the offer because the reply is YES35 which in my head seems like a $35 plan? Wonder if anyone else with a $15 plan received this offer or can clarify...

@fibi200329That is the 35$ plan. If you have to reply YES35 to it then it sounds like the 35$ plan.

Re: New targeted offer for some current clients!

I'm actually a bit confused and was hoping if someone can clear something up for me. I have gotten the text:

"3GB incl. AutoPay bonus + unlim. talk & text for $35+tax/mo."
I'm confused about the autopay bonus part here.

Does this mean the autopay reward is already included in the 35$ price or will it be $33 with the inclusion of autopay reward? Can someone help me understand this?
thanks in advance! 🙂

@Mimi1201 The autopay on top of the 35$ Plan makes it 33$ I am pretty sure it is the same as the 35$ Plan at the moment but with more data

How is this offer any different than that one time offer?  Looks like not everyone got it and it's not offered publicly.  That puts it in the same position.

There are lots of ways to get better plans.  Bring 4 phones to RBC with a business account and you're getting 10GB on each phone for $45 a month with Telus.  Or, I can get a promo plan through my work right now for $63 for 20GB.

I'm not trying to say that this offer is garbage, I'm just saying it's not "great".  The 3 offers I mentioned above, are "great" offers.  


I tend to agree.  $10 for 2 extra GBs is not that cheap.  The $25 plan is pretty good value.  Paying $10 more sort of waters down the value.  One must be mindful that an extra $5 will get 2GB more ($40/5GB plan).   


@will13am I do understand this but I have 7$ worth of rewards at the moment. I am planning to refer a few family members soon too. Trying to get 10$ of rewards credit is easier than trying to get 15$ If I can get 10$ of reward credit I would be paying 25$ for the 35$ plan. Also even if the 35$ plan is popular or not I still think it should be upgraded.


Don't get me wrong, for many who have been hungry for a 3GB plan, this would do it.  I am just saying from an overall value perspective, it is not the panacea.

I thought the same, but I believe the Autopay Bonus refers to the extra 500mb of data offered on all other plans, which is why it is refrerred to in the same subject as the 3GB of data.  So, to me they're just clarifying that it's not 3GB +500MB, it's 3GB total.  I would assume the Autopay discount would still apply.  If not, it makes this plan even less appealing as it's $12 for 2GB.

 

3GB including Autopay Bonus = 2.5GB + 500MB Autopay Bonus

 

If it was worded as "$35 including autopay bonus", which would mean that they add $10 to your plan, and remove your autopay bonus for 2GB of data.

I couldn't quite remember if it included the 500mb autopay bonus or not. Thanks for the clarification and the extra details on how to take advantage of the offer....but if you have it how did you not remember it was a targeted text offer?

. The offer could very well be legitimate, but this would be the first time I've ever heard of Public Mobile allowing changes to be made to an account by having someone reply to a text message.

 

@will13am   And to think I resisted the urge to post a snappy comeback last night! My powers of influence to get what I want out of public mobile are vastly underestimated....lol. If you wish really really hard for something sometimes you get it! Now if I can get it offered to everybody maybe I should be looking in my mailbox for paycheque from pm.

 

@Mimi1201  I think the reference to the offer including the autopay bonus refers to the 500mb data bonus....its included in the 3gb ( vs it being 3.5gb.)

How about waving the magic wand one more time and getting me $30/3GB.  If that happens, I am a buyer.  For now, I have to be content with paying less and for more GBs on SIM 2.  I would consolidate at the right terms.  Not to rain on your parade, you did good.  Give yourself a pat on the back.  Virtue is its own punishment.  Now go and make my wish come true and give this targeted plan a place in the regular plan web page.

That $60 plan offers was advertised as including a 500MB autopay bonus, but it wasn't supposed to, based on the information that I have. When people took advantage of the offer, the 500MB wasn't there.  Public Mobile made the correction and included it later on based on customer feedback (and complaints).

 

Back on topic, I don't think that Public Mobile has ever made it so that a customer would get a promotion/new plan based on replying to a text message.
