USA addon for 17 days?

Hi, I'm going to be travelling to the USA for 17 days, and I'd like to have talk, data, and text. I know there's the 10-day addon for that. How does it work in terms of making sure i'm covered with it for 17 days? Do I buy two of the addons simultaneously, and it'll use one and then the other? Or do I have to buy one, wait until it's almost used up, and then buy the other addon to extend it?

 

As an aside--it's frustrating that we can't purchase the US addon and set it to begin at a particular date and time. That means I have to buy it the morning of my trip before I leave for the airport, as I don't want to be fiddling around trying to purchase it using wifi at my destination US airport after I arrive; which in turn means I'm "wasting" some of the addon's time while still in Canada on the outbound trip.

You have to buy them twice. On the renewal / expire date the addons might take up to 24 hours to reapear before being able to repurchase. So you might have to buy a different ones.

 

You can have multiple Data addons, but if you have two voice addons at the same time that can cause issues with calling

 

Have you thought if buying a local sim while in the USA?

You will have to buy them separately, wait till the first runs out before buying the second. You may have to wait a day between when the first runs out and you can purchase a second, sometimes it takes a day before the option to buy it comes up again.

As well they are 10 calendar days badbased the eastern time zone.  So if you purchase at 9am or 11 pm EST that is day 1 so really buying a few hours earlier while still in Canada is not wasting anytime

You can also buy the addons by calling 18554public as long as you know your account pin and have funds, or have a credit card on file.

 

You can also buy it a day early since you plan to buy two addons.

And be careful don't do the same mistake I did.... @canadave If you buy the SAME add-on (because the system will authorize to do itSmiley Sad) but the first one is not finished you will loose what was on it!!!

@Lieux can you go into more details.  You should not be able to buy the same USA add-on till it is finished.

No it was not the add-on for USA but add-on for data 200Mb for 10$ @mimmo. It's not the same principle for the add-on USA??

No it is not. 2 of the same USA addons can not be purchased until the first is finished.

 

Also the regular data addons should stack. They should not cancel each other out.
