$40.50 2GB LTE 500 Daytime Canada Wide Promo, Unlimited Incoming Calls

Deal Link:
Retailer:
Zoomer Wireless
Zoomer runs on the Rogers Network and is a subsidiary of Cityfone which is owned by Rogers. All companies have Rogers network and coverage area. These plans are available for any new customer or existing customers. $50 referral credit also available on new accounts for both the person referring and getting referred.

$40.50 Promo Plan Details:
500 Canada-Wide Minutes
2GB of LTE Data
UNLIMITED Text, Picture and Video Messages (Canada & International)
Unlimited Evenings and Weekends 6PM-7AM
UNLIMITED Canada-Wide Incoming Calls
UNLIMITED Zoomer-to-Zoomer calling Canada-Wide
Voicemail, Call Display, Name Display, Call Waiting & Conference Calling
Free LG F4NR, LG K4, LG G3 (?), Samsung Galaxy J1, Samsung Galaxy J3 with 2 year term
(* A thing to mention: You can get the Galaxy A5 2017 for $150 with this plan. It's a very good phone with waterproof, fingerprint, etc. Better than J1, LG etc if you plan to keep the phone *).

PLUS: Earn a $50 Referral Credit by getting a referral from a current Zoomer Customer
*Referral credits for new accounts only and must stay with Zoomer for 30 days or credit gets clawed back from both accounts

There are other plans available also.
Note: Changes between promos must happen before the first 30 days of service or you risk losing double everything + 1gb bonuses. Any changes afterward would be after 6 months of service when upgrading to one of their Loyalty Plans (Currently with 24/7 unlimited Canada Wide Talk on them) . But as with anything, YMMV.

FAQs:

1. How do I sign up for this awesome plan?

By activating a chat session with a Zoomer rep or calling in. They will perform a credit check when signing you up. If you have poor credit, you can put in $$$ deposit and still get this plan! Zoomer will then ship you phone and SIM card. Delivery usually takes 2-3 days but YMMV. Don't forget to get a referral from a current Zoomer customer as you will each get a $50 bill credit.

2. Is this plan available on BYOD?

No. Plans listed above are only available on 2 year contract. Double Your Talk, Text, Data + EXTRA 1GB promo is not available on BYOD. BYOD plans are as listed on Zoomer website. If you want the cheapest buyout option get the lowest value phone ($100) as an emergency back up phone to sell/donate/trade in. Your buyout cost would then be $100÷24xmonths left on your contract. Or alternatively you can get the GR5 or J3 (highest resale value and sell for $100-150 (YMMV) and reduce your overall costs.

3. Can I use my own phone with Zoomer?

Yes. Zoomer sends you a 3 in 1 SIM that will fit into full sized, micro, or nano SIM card slots. Rogers locked devices and unlocked devices will all work under the Zoomer network of you have a phone already you would prefer to use. Fido locked Android phones also work, but YMMV depending on model. If you have an unlocked Android you must enter in the Rogers LTE APN listed below. If you have an unlocked LG device (G3/G4/G5), you may need to factory reset your phone after updating your APN. YMMV

4. What are these Loyalty Plans I keep hearing about?

Loyalty Plans are plans available to customers that have been with Zoomer for at least 6 months of service but YMMV if these will continue to be offered in the future. To date: $36, $45, $54 and $72 Family Plans all seem to still be available.
*Loyalty Plan thread is listed as Expired Deal, but is still available to date. But YMMV

5. What type of SIM does Zoomer send out to new customers?

3 in 1 SIM which can be punched into full, micro or nano.

6. How long is this plan/bonus referral available until?

Some have said end of June, some have said end of September, but no matter what YMMV. Speak to a Zoomer rep to find out most up to date info, this plan has been extended multiple times since early January 2017. The $50 bonus referral credit however is listed on invoices as expiring end of September. After that referral credits drop back to $25.

7. Does Zoomer have any retail locations?

No. But they have the best customer service of any company I personally have been with and I've been with quite a few. Activate a chat session to chat online or give them a call to sign up/ask any questions. Reps are quick, super friendly and knowledgible.

8. What happens after my 2 year contract is over?

You can either sign another 2 year commitment and get another subsidized device or just continue on with the plan you have (including, of course, the bonus data) at the same price - bonus minutes / data does not go away and the price does not go up at all.

Requested by Mods: Do not ask for a referral or state that you have one to give. Comments like "PM me for details” or “You’ve got a PM" are also not allowed.

P.S.

Information in this OP was taken from $36 Zoomer thread by rolomonster HERE: zoomer-wireless-hot-36-2gb-lte-400-dayt ... t-2074500/ ... Thanks.

That thread went to Expired Hot Deals forum section now ... and contains almost 300 pages of discussion, info and details.

Thanks for making this thread. Old one for moved to expired for some reason.

One thing to mention - you can get the Galaxy A5 2017 for $150 with this plan. It's a very good phone with waterproof, fingerprint, etc. Better than J1, LG etc if you plan to keep the phone.

Only real alternative to Public mobile. Keep in mind you can switch to $45/4GB loyalty plan after 6 months. Combined with referral credits, you can minimize that cost somewhat, get a free phone that you can sell if you want. Plus, you have a great customer service and canada-wide calling.

This is correct. Referral bonuses are available until Sept 30 or until quantities last. YMMV.

Before creating this thread I called Zoomer to ask about this and that (including few small details) ... The Rep told me the Referral credit deal is still on ... and he wasn't sure about September 30th expiry for it ... as far as he knew, he told me, this deal was ongoing (for now anyhow).

$50 referral bonus is on until Sept 30

After Sept 30, the referral bonus is back to the regular $25

Just keep in mind Zoomer runs on the Rogers network, where as Public is the TELUS/Bell network. I find the latter to be faster and more reliable, but YMMV in the area you live.

Can confirm, this is what the rep told me as well... But they also said if there's too many people signing up they could end it late August.
For those on the fence, I would sign up earlier just in case... There's always a 30 day return period.

Zoomer requires you set up auto-pay with your CC, but you can always pay your bill earlier before they charge it.
