May be it'll stop employees at retail outlets entering in THIER own phone numbers, when people activate their accounts in store.  And not using the phone numbers that are given to them to enter in.  It's being done quite alot.


If they are doing it, employees could still enter their code, so it won't deter that.

 

Switching from phone number to code gives the user a bit more security.

How?  It"ll just make it slightly more difficult to remember a code.  This change will also cause some referrals to be lost because someone might already mghtb already know your phone number but not the code.

I'd say long overdue but should have always been the situation.

Re: Unique referral code

@RossN, it was a way for people to steal Koodo offers from eligible PM subscribers when Koodo was offering them.  Some 'friends' would use the referral number (the telephone of their referrer) and scoop up the offer before the referrer had the chance.

 

Scummy friends of course, not real friends.

@stonechucker 

We may have another PM to Koodo migration lottery after swtiching to referral code.

Migration lottery is good for getting more referrals as the future new subscribers are eager to get a ticket for a chance to get a good plan at Koodo.  I am one of those subscribers.  But after 1 year, I am stay with PM even if I receive an offer in the future.

Re: Unique referral code

I’m still waiting for the txt message about this on my Fall 2016 Promo sim.  My new sim for my backup phone got the txt sometime this weekend.

 

Maybe my opt out of the offer in 2017 killed this message.

Re: Unique referral code

I think there should be some “rules” around referrals. IMHO it looks EXTREMELY unprofessional every time PM puts up a Facebook post and literally hundreds of people come out of the woodwork saying use my referral code, no use mine... 

 

I don’t know what the answer is but I have seen moderators occasionally post telling people to stop posting their phone numbers. These new codes may lead to even more doing these posts. PM could simply state this sort of trolling for unsolicited referrals is unacceptable and suspend the ability to earn any new referral credits for one month for any codes posted publicly on a PM advertisement post. It is one thing to message someone who asks for a referral code but the number of unsolicited offers simply looks bad on PM.
