I think SO got the heat from Public Mobile. This may be reason why there are more $25 bonus this year.
I switched my SO line to PM $8 w/autopay 50/50 plan 11 months ago. In another month, I will be paying $7 per 30 days after 1 year anniversary ($1/cycle loyalty reward).
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

Who else (e.g. FM, Fido, ??) has a better deal?

With this (25% off) deal it's like getting 1GB data + unlim text for $26/mnth. I don't need any free call/long dist minutes.

I like FM with their US roaming feature and - like Speakout - their service is the same as Rogers: across Canada - not just in the city.

Yes, 3 times a year I think, so it's on half the time. I often end up missing the window and have to add $25 to tide me over a couple of months though.

Doesn't PM have the in-city coverage restriction? I.e. their data plan is only good if you're in a najor city, if you're up at the cottage it's 'roaming'?

No. PM is the low cost prepaid provider run by Telus and its network is Canada wide. Telus and Bell are sharing towers. Therefore, you have the service if you are near a Telus tower in the west and Bell tower in the east i.e. Canada wide.

Yeah SO is no longer a deal on the low end. If they had updated their data plan or prices to be competitive, sure, but for cheapest plan PM beats them out.
You can also get data that does not expire with PM.

But PM data add-on is expensive at $30 1GB.
It is better to switch to a plan with amount of data which meets your usage.
$23 with autopay 1GB data
$33 with autopay 1.5GB data
$38 with autopay 5GB data

SO is still good for those who need/want an emergency type plan or those who might want to periodically (one month at a time) turn on/off things like unlimited texting/call or data as or when they want it. With PM the lowest price is $10/mth (yes less $2 for auto pay and yes you can get $1/yr loyalty reductions). SO is $1.25/mth if you don't use text/calling (perhaps you use wifi at work or at school for most/all of your needs). I don't think PM you can go that low.

Also might be good for keeping around for when family visits. Turn on a $20 value plan (unlimited texting+200 min) for one month when they visit, turn it off when no one is visiting.

Speakout is only good for $25/year people (and even with that, a huge chunk gets eaten up by their scam 911 fees)

For almost everyone else, there are better plans

Agree. The break even is 23 minutes usage per months between PM and Speakout.
PM $10 50 minutes plan. After autopay is $8/m.
SO cost for 23 minutes/m = $1.25 + 23 x $0.30 = $8.15.

PM has reward system which allows you to have free service.
autopay $2/m
referral $1/referee as long as your referee stay with PM
loyalty $1 per year with PM for maximum of $5.
After 1 year with PM, my $10 plan is free with 7 referees ($10 = $2 autopay + $7 referral + $1 loyalty).

You definitely don't join speakout for their plans, though they are still probably cheaper than plans a lot of Canadians feel like they are locked into. Their niche is the $25 a year minimum top up for extreme low end users.
