I was searching all over hot deals looking for a follow up thread and there's nothing, no indication in the original thread either.

I am very tempted to switch but I guess I'll keep waiting if you guys think there will be a better round ahead. Plus I'm going to the US soon and their roaming add ons are very good, so I can wait. Fingers crossed for $40/8GB+credits.
The $40/8GB with bill credit ship has sailed. I just don't see how that will ever come back. Looking at the pattern of offers back in 2018, they were all centered around paying $40 for various amounts of data and bill credit. Data ranged from 4GB to 8GB. Bill credit ranged from one time $100 to $15 x 12. The $35/5GB was bit of an anomaly. The first offer this year is $50/8GB, no bill credits. Perhaps the data amount or bill credit could vary. I just don't see the dollar amount changing. $50 is the new $40. Look how those 10GB plans took on a price increase.

Dear all public mobile lottery ticket holders,

No more $40 plan from now on. And even if there is you might not have a winning ticket. Your next best bet would be getting a virgin prepaid and when 30 days is up you are automatically eligible for an upgrade to virgin postpaid $40 6gb plan no contract. Walmart and virgin stores confirmed that. It might not be your favorite carrier but you ticket with virgin is a guarantee WIN!

Sincerely,

A very disappointed PM customer

I could see Koodo offering a $40 migration plan but not with 6 to 8 GB of data, maybe 4 or 5.

Good thing theyre asking for validation codes now. I’ve had multiple pms for pm referrals yet none of them have signed up yet. I think some people are “asking” for referrals and they end up harvesting pm numbers in hopes of scoring a migration plan and attempting to screwing over members

Except the validation code is their phone number.

Yeah, good thing Telus makes enough profit to hire real smart people to come up with using phone number as part of the validation. This discussion should refrain from discussing this to much otherwise this thread is going to get locked like the previous one.

Hmm. That’s not necessary true. I remember being on the famous 120 plan and first ever offer many months prior to $40 plan variations was: $50/5gb.

Do you still have the text message? Can you post it? I recall that the migration offer started with $40/4GB, then $40/5GB and finally $40/6GB back in February 2018. In the summer they had some big gig migration deals but I never got an invite to participate. Then in the fall, I was invited to take part in the $40/8GB or $35/5GB deal.

I must have switched 2-3 phones since then. I usually dont keep text messages. But Tobsterboi posted a great reference. And here's what I was referring to:

That's pretty shady, I was hesitant on giving out my referral as a result of this happening - Someone could ask for my my phone number and claim the "code" if the crazy deals do arrive.

I should've saved @will888's phone number for future deals. Crying Face
Which one? They have all been used and abused. I will probably never get another deal. That is why I have been shut out this round.
