Check out this offer for "Pioneers", looks good to me.
The plans above shows Telus/Public Mobile still cares their loyal customers by "grandfathered" their plan. i heard Bell/Virgin don't "grandfathered" plan!
@Rambo I am not an accountant almost was but changed paths. If you think that is getting all bent then sorry you took it that way. If I write down the latest and greatest phone on my christmas list my Mommy and daddy don't get it for me as I don't even do that for my own kids. I am sorry if yours don't for you either but I understand how over priced phones are new. I realized a long time ago it was better to buy phones outright and unlocked then shop for your plan. The phone I have now was Originally $950 I found it online used for $250 at only 3 months old.
As you are a Pioneer customer I thought you would have known the business model of PM. I am new here and don't really know the pre Telus history of PM. But I did know when I switched to PM it was a BYOD no frills provider. I their reward structure and loyalty they provide here is unmatched by any other provider out there with Autopay reward, community rewards, and referral rewards. Then after a year you are saving an additional $1 per month up to 5 years $5 a month as loyalty. It doesn't look like much but when you are looking at them all adding up the great pricing we get here can't be matched. Now these rewards might not be available to Pioneer customers so maybe look into the new plans and see if any of them will work better for you.
you shouldnt get a free phone just for staying with them for years. There are many phones that are affordable now (BLU, Moto, Xaomi, ect) Use your money and buy yourself a phone. Orchard sells refurbished phones. You dont need an expensive $1000 phone to do simple things. Thats what these China and Budget phones are for. Low end specs that do the basic things. My Nexus phone was $350 UNLOCKED AND NEW. Most of the big names (Rogers, Bell) Do Free upgrades every x amount of years, but then you renew your plan. Just buy a cheap budget phone
@Rambo Whether @ShawnC13 is the accountant or not it doesnt matter, while i believe people who have been with a company long term should derive some sort of benefit, you are already getting that benefit. Through loyalty rewards and a g randfathered plan.
However just because you have been with PM for a long time, doesnt mean myself or other new users should subsidize any type of phone for users who have been here longer, its just absurd to think that.
I'm also newish to PM, and agree, it's great for those of us on reward eligible plans, however, grandfathered pioneer plans are not eligible for any rewards, other than the already low, low, low price they are paying for their services.
Yes, switching to a now available rewards eligible plan, the can immediately jump into the loyality rewards based on subscribtion time, and also autopay and friend referals.
Grandfathered pioneer members are alredy getting one EXTRAORDINARY reward for being long time PM customers - the grandfathered plans themselves.
@echf actually when Solo was being shut down clients were allowed to take existing plans to Bell / Virgin
Also when Mobilicity was shut down originally all clients were sent to Chatr, but after some dispute they also allowed migration to Fido
So it has happened before
Same shady dealers today though as back in the day
@WearySky really unless you do not want data the older plans are not all that great... (the $60 is way worse, and the $40/$45 plans are worse)
The Siren plans and old Boxing day deals were spectacular but Telus killed them when they shut down the CDMA network
Telus also removed the $20 unlimited long distance option (leaving us with $15 for 400 minutes)
I would also point out the $25 plan was not always cross-Canada, they added that as a competitive match with Wind
