October 18th to October 25th 11:59pm EDT

Bonus 2GB each 30 days for the first 6 months
$35 or higher plan activation on a new account required
Online activations only
Promo code required: BONUSDATA



Offer details copied from publicmobile.ca:
Effective October 18 2019 until October 25 2019 at 11:59PM ET. Offer available to new customers who activate online. Offer is not stackable with other promotions. (Note added by me: yes, a new customer who gets referred will still get a $10 account credit)

2GB bonus will be automatically applied to eligible rate plans of $35/mo or higher for the first 6 months. Discount will expire if account becomes inactive or the rate plan is changed. Please note, it may take up to 7 business days for the bonus data to appear on your account. This offer is subject to change without notice.

Not that overwhelming. The $35 plan at 1.5GB + 2GB bonus = 3.5GB ---- This is what it should be without the bonus.

If the bonus stuck then it would be something. But I guess if you were signing up for a new plan at PM, you might as well take it, even though most probably won't even dip into the bonus data (except for $35 plan)

Pretty underwhelming deal. Come on Public Mobile, you can do better than this. OP, how did you jump the gun on posting this deal one hour ahead of the official announcement. I call foul.

I guess this bonus makes the $35 plan somewhat usable for 6 months. Then off to the $40 plan. Another way of looking at it is this deal is worth $5 x 6 in savings for those contemplating getting the $40 plan. OP maybe you should reword your post this way.

I will just point out - this is online only, which means you have to have a physical SIM on hand (or the unactivated SIM number), so you need to order a SIM card and have it delivered before Oct25. Walmart will not sell you a SIM card and let you take it home for home activation. Other stores may sell you the SIM.

I don't disagree. This promo is for a $35 or higher plan new customer activation. So, the $40 plan wil get new customer 7GB for the first 6 "months" (actually 30 day cycles).

This thread was posted 9 minutes before the annoucement. It was on the home page, and then on plan page after a couple minutes before they even made an annoucement about 10 minutes later.

I purchased my sim card from Walmart and they let me take it home without them activating it.

Basically all of PM's promotions are for new customers.
It really grinds my gears, because I really could have used the $30 2GB plan, but oh well.

If anybody wants in on this promo and can't get a SIM card in time, I can give you a SIM card number for online activation and send it to you tracked.
Would only ask for the cost of the SIM card (Ontario tax).

Only posting here because it's relevant to this promo. I get nothing out of this, but if anybody objects, I'll remove the post.
(Doing this because I have a few spare SIM cards I want to get rid of)

Exactly!! And 30$ 2 gb plan is perfect for me. And it's honestly logical wen u see the plans they have - a 30$ plan below could be perfect.
25$ 1gb
30$ 2gb
40$ 5gb
50$ 8.5gb
60$ 12gb (includes limited time 2 gb bonus. It actually 10 gb regular + 2 gb bonus with promo code)

The above plans just makes so much sense. But no, they have to have a 35$ 1.5gb plan. Why would anyone opt for that ridiculous plan?

Clarification: This promotion is online only. Public Mobile has issued a correction to their annoucement to say that.
