PM has $15 plan, 100 mins only. 

 

HOWEVER, you can add $5 add-ons for 500 min.  The beauty for this add-ons is it is non-expiring.  So, if you didn't use them up, it will roll over to next month until all used up.  

 

So, you are paying $20 for 600 mins, out of which 500 could be roll over and hence the next month you may just pay $15 unless you are out of the mins   🙂

How does the $25 PM plan match.....a bit better? $25 - $2 for auto-pay - $1 off per year of loyalty - $1 to $100 of referrals = less than $20.

You would have to check the announcements section for any new offers an plans.  PM does make plan changes to keep up with competitors.

and yes.. as reminded by @LurganIeUk , with the $2 autopay, you are just paying

$18 for 600 mins and could be just $13 for some months assuming you dun use up all the minutes every month

 @Meowington : 500 minutes is a nice bump-up but Chatr has overages and their add-ons don't stay on the account until used.

@softech A very well thought out response. And the best answer to keep with the cost to $20. Well done!!!

 

But for the OP would this plan be better with a bit of an extra cost?

@Meowington 

A really smart solution by @softech for the base $15 + $5 Add-on - $2 AutoPay for $18/month, cheaper than Chatr's $20/month with AutoPay (for data). 

 

The only thing is that this would be a little cumbersome, requiring to manually top-up, then purchase Add-Ons every cycle but you do get that rollover option since the Add-On minutes won't expire.

 

With that solution, I'm unsure whether Public Mobile will "match" that plan... the more complicated things get, the better chances are that our prices will start going up.  🙂

With the chatr plan you waste any unused minutes each month with pm they roll over so you really don't have log in that often to purchase the $5/500 add on that it's inconvenient. It took me a year to finally deplete one of my $5/500 min add ons. Making the plan cost about $15.42 ( - rewards)

Je ne crois pas que c'est avantageux d'être avec chat.

Ya tu les texto partout dans le monde,,

J'ai le forfait à 15$ qui est 13 car je paye chaque mois et depuis tout le temps que je suis client avec public mobile ça baisse de 1$ chaque moin par chaque année, je suis rendu pour mon payement chaque mois à 7$ par mois,

De plus j'ai acheté un bloc de temps de 500 minutes  à 5$ vla plusieurs mois et je l'utilise pas  et expire jamais

La même chose pour internet il expire pas si t'achète 1g exemple, il reste bon jusqu'à expiration, j'ai 250m gratuit chaque mois

Alors il y a aucune compagnie qui arrive avec. Public mobile

Rester avec public mobile c'est comme avoir un compte à banque

Sauf que public mobile de paye des intérêts chaque mois

Cest le meilleur
