How much do you save a month from the Community?

I’m thinking about getting a plan with Public and I was wondering how difficult it is to save money through the Community Reward.

Re: How much do you save a month from the Community?

Hi @mary_emma ,

I wouldn't go into getting a Public Mobile account thinking you will be getting money off your 30 day plan through the Community Rewards route. Think of this Reward as an added perk, it you get it - great! 

Yes, as @gblackma says the $1 and $2 is a reachable reward if you are somewhat active within a 30 day period. But you will need to spend more time, and provide useful knowledge goodies to get the higher ones. Of course this is reachable, but more time consuming. 🙂

 

You will find the money saving will be finding the best plan that is right for you, plus

-$2 off per 30 days when signed up for Autopay

-$1 off per 30 days for Loyalty...off every year (after the first year) for up to $5 max (5 years)

-$1 off per 30 days for Referring a Friend (for as long as that friend stays with Public Mobile

@mary_emma the maximum that you can get is $15 and that was given to 2 members for the last 2 months. The smaller $1 and $2 rewards are doable. The higher ones harder. Here is an article on the community reward.  https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/on/get-help/articles/the-community-reward .  Welcome to PM.  Stay safe.

 

Here's 4 articles on activation and porting and the Refer a friend reward  if you need them:

It is easier to earn the lower amounts per month.  It takes a lot of time to earn the higher levels.  As we joke on the community forum, you can likely earn more money collecting bottles and cans on the street then spending time here.  Earning $20 is not reachable for most people, except for oracles.  $15/month likely need to spend at least several hours most days.  Less than minimum wage if you average it out.

It's a lot easier to make/save money by using your referral code to sign up friends and relatives.

I'm a new member since May. I frequent the forums (both in French and English) a few times per week. I have never given official solutions yet, but I have given my input on some subjects. I have received 2 $ for June, and 1 $ for July. It isn't much, for this forum is a great community, and you get to learn new things. It's interesting. I wouldn't go it solely for the only.

You can technically save up to as much as 20 dollars every 30 days but it is very unlikely. To achieve this you would need to spend hours a day answering questions in the community. Although getting 1 or 2 dollars off is very much doable if you stay active.

@Jessar12 You know that this thread is two weeks old and has already been marked with a solution and has the same info that you just posted?

It isn't possbile to earn a $20 Community reward unless Public Mobile assigns you to the rank of Oracle. This also isn't something that gets evaluated monthly, so if you don't have that Community rank, the most you can earn is $15.

And they haven't appointed any new Oracles for over a year and a half.
