Re: Hey CCS!!

@z10user4 ... yes, I know, I was subtly excluding the "referral" option you mentioned in lieu of the first option you suggested!  Sometimes, if we want to keep alive, it's best not to know! 😂

Dang - I'm usually better at getting those inside jokes. Guess I just haven't been an insider long enough 😎

 

Having a spare or two for making it easier for potential switchers to convert does make sense - especially since we can't buy them anywhere in town so would add the extra friction of waiting til they're going into Ottawa, or having to wait to get one shipped.

Might just grab a couple of $4.99 ones from CCS for that purpose, now that you mention it.

Are you aware if there is a limit to the number of referral bonuses we can earn?

“Virtually” no limit to referral $1 bonuses. I say Virtually because I think someone said the number stops increasing on your Friend Referral line when you exceed 120 or something like that. Until then, go for it!

 

I always keep a few SIM cards around for Referral reasons, if someone is “interested” AND you have a SIM on hand they can complete the change to PM that day rather than giving them more time to “think about it” and ultimately come up with a bunch of reasons why they shouldn’t change to PM.

Other than bf factor....

 

CCS kept having sim card sales....$3.99 then $2.99 then as low as $1.99! I had to pull myself together and go cold turkey and not even look at their emails for awhile..... At one point I had around 23 or so plus a few other providers because they were selling them for $0.25 and a few for as little as  $0.10. (I mean the stamp cost more!) I also picked up a freedom sim card for $3.99 just in case I need to help someone edit their APN when they have one of those foreign phones like the Umidigi X.

 

For while there was a troubling simjacking issue until pm disabled the change sim card feature in our self serve accounts so having an extra sim card on hand was a quick way of regaining control of your phone number and service.

 

Sim cards can easily be misplaced or lost, damaged or begin to wear out.....but referrals are the main reason or helping out a fellow customer in a pinch in your local community. If you have a few extras on hand and there is no local retailer and its only a replacement sim card or your neighbour is using their family members referral code for their activation there's nothing wrong with charging them the msrp. Especially if time is of the essence because of an expiring flash sale promotion, a last minute port out from pre-paid provider or complete loss of mobile service requiring immediate sim replacement.

 

And save the tri-cut sized sim card frames to use as adapters when switching a sim card between phones that take smaller or larger sim card sizes. ( Regular, micro or nano.)

 

Edit: There is a maximum of 110 referrals allowed per account. Activate a second account if you start to get a lot of referrals....remember you will also build $5 worth of loyalty rewards if you stick around.

Re: Hey CCS!!

I guess it is harder than I thought on how to predict when CCS will have a sale. I have almost used up all my cards from which they get a fee from PM I understand. I need more CCS!! How about a sale?? 

 

And CCS:  Once we are a customer of PM we need you for SIM cards....but you keep sending emails for package deals......it's like flogging a dead horse......

Re: Hey CCS!!

Looks like it's time to bulk buy and do a split?

 

CCS is now $5.99 plus tax, free shipping. 

Budget is $4.50 plus tax, plus shipping.

I suspect the price went up so the sale of a sim card isn't a total loss given their new $5 referral code program.

Re: Hey CCS!!

More unexplainable and irrational pricing at CCS!!!! Back to $4.99. 

 

CCS needs to have a sale for 5 for price of 4 or something!!!
