That isn't quite how it works. A new member cannot get more than a $15 community reward. And, while people tend to sometimes return bravos, receiving them is still going to be based on the content posted. In addition, we don't quite know exactly what triggers the rewards, other than it being participation based. I can tell you that it is not completely based on bravos. If there are more people particiapating, this can somrtimes make earning payouts at each reward level more difficult because of increased competititon.
I can hardly get any responses in now over at PM as the questions are answered by multiple community users within minutes now. The forum is very active, not RFD active, but active.

Looking to port a line and get a new line for my kid. Whats the best way to maximize the deals. What are these referral bonus I read about?
The friend referral bonus for $25 for both parties ends on March 18 at 11:59 PM. To maximize bonus at this time. Buy two SIM cards. Activate one line with a friend referral. Using your 1st line as a referer for 2nd line, activate 2nd line. Both activations needs to be done at home, online (not in store). You will need to pay for 1st month for both lines.

1st account should get $50 credit, 2nd account $25 (within 72 hours). 1st account should also get ongoing $1 per month credit.

So it's now confirmed that PM doesn't have FREE INCOMING calls feature that Chatr offers?
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Correct there all call time is deducted from the 100 minutes. With PM you aren't charged $0.40 a minute to check your voicemail and if required you can purchase non expiring Long Distance addons that can be used for your talk. $8 for 200 min so $0.04 a minute

Really was hoping for the unl inc, but even without it, it's still a good plan.
$13/month is fair enough for minimal use

Every year you stay with PM the price goes down a $1 up to $5 as well. Get some Referrals this plan can easily be under $10

Purchase a SIM Card by going online to https://www.publicmobile.ca/get-started
or locate a participating retailer Wow, K-Mobile, Walmart, London Drugs, Mobile Shop to purchase a SIM Card.

Note that Walmart is not a good option for buying SIM cards as they will force an in store activation which will disqualify you from getting the referral bonus.

Visit https://activate.publicmobile.ca and follow the instructions to activate your SIM Card. Until March 18, 2019 get an additional $25.00 if you activate online and enter a referral number in the "Referred by a friend" field.

During the activation process, select your plan at this point if you also setup autopay you will get an additional $2.00 discount every 30 days.

When 100 minutes is not enough, the $2 autopay discount will get you extra 50 minutes.
200 minutes add-on $8
400 minutes add-on $15
Add-on minutes does not expire until they are used. Unused add-on minutes will roll over to the next cycle until all used.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

Potential customers should remember that the $25 bonus credit offer will not be honoured unless the activation is completed by that deadline. Simply ordrering the sim card doesn't ensure that. If you order a sim card now, there is a good chance that it won't arrive in time.

Great point!. Also, PM have announced they will be performing maintenance on their online site March 17th, so the sooner you activate the better because if you wait for the last minute things get very slow and you might not be able to complete the signup before the deadline.

Good stuff. Bravo, PM!

BTW, is this limited time, or permanent plan?
I might need something like it late summer, wonder if it will still be there...

Add on data would be 3g for the $15 plan, compared to LTE on the $10 plan?
