Promotion / special offer for add-ons?

Has there ever been a promotion or "special" or "limited time" offer on any add-ons? Such as buy 3x1GB $30 data add-on for the price of 2 ($60) or a christmas special get 5GB add-on data for $90. etc

 

Do you think there will ever be? If not, why not?

Interesting idea,  to my recollection there has not.  

will there be one I doubt it. as for reasoning  i think it would be hard for people to "keep  3 addons in stroage" for future use.  (the exact words) escape me at the moment though.

I was going to bring up this very topic last week but got side tracked and forgot all about it.  I was talking to a colleague about bringing his parents over from Koodo prepaid.  He said he tried to make the math work out but it was simply cheaper for them to stay with Koodo.  It was all because of the periodic sales on the add-on minutes and data.  The usual discount is half price.  Another missing piece to the puzzle would be a text add-on to complement the limited usage plan.

@will13amMaybe they are afraid of how many people would switch to the $10 plan if they offered SMS add-on.

I would pick up a lot of add-ons I didn't need if they were half price.

they have some intersting plans/addons,  i think pm is cheaper overall ie talk and text is 35$ at koodo but here is $25  the one that caught my attention is the long distance  it is more costly than PM $30/300 min vs $15/400 min but the list of countries is 50 not 18.

Then there is the thought that such a deal would bring in customers who are otherwise using 7-11 and Petro Canada mobile.  This brand has gone stale in recent times.  They watch what Chatr is doing and respond.  It doesn't hurt to try something different and be a leader again.  They can introduce the SMS add-on and see what happens.  They can withdraw it any time. 

 

BTW, never hoard tech.  Price are subject to decrease without notice.

Sigh, so many bins of "old" computer stuff that I should have sold when it was worth something. Anyone need some 72 pin SIMM's? Smiley Sad

@GreatCanadianHaha I am excited. 5 1/4" hdd days were good. Is that ST412? Clearly not IDE

Re: Promotion / special offer for add-ons?

@RobertQc Yes sir it's IDE. I compressed it to 40 mb capacity. And I added extra RAM for a total of 4MB RAM. I was the big kid on the block!!
