Yet another Holiday Giveaways!!!
One time add-ons.

Some people received text from 4911. They seemed to be sending in batches. "Existing customers will receive a SMS between December 1-15."

UPDATE: Some people are not getting any response after replying "YES" to 4911. You should now see add-ons added in your account as long as you replied YES.

"We know some people are having issues, and are still waiting to redeem holiday gifts. We are looking into it as we speak. We'll return to this thread with an update when we have more info, but for now hang tight. To clarify, SMS is the way to get this offer. "

"Not a Public Mobile Customer?
Set up your Public Mobile SIM card & get your free holiday rewards added to your account when you activate by December 31st, 2021.

Already a Public Mobile Customer?
Your free holiday rewards are ready and waiting. To activate them, all you have to do is reply YES to the text we sent you by December 31st, 2021. The rewards will be applied to your account instantly

The holidays are a time to make and share memories. That's why we're offering 2GB of free data for all Public Mobile customers.

Celebrate the season and stay in touch with 500 minutes of free international calling including Canada & US.

This season, sharing is caring. So refer a friend to us between December 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021, and we’ll take $5 off your payment every 30 days for up to six months as long as your friend stays with us."

Reminder: to keep this thread open, do not derail it with referral requests or solicitation.

Nice. Public mobile traditional holiday give away. Free bonus and long distance minutes add ons. For both new and existing customers.
Reminder that the add ons are one time add on. Unused portion does roll over to next payment cycle.
I have multiple add ons from previous holiday giveaways.

Able to combine with ongoing Black Friday promotion.

Good time for existing customers to refer their friends.
$30 Refer-a-friend bonus added to eligible customer accounts in $5 monthly increments for 6 months. Monthly credit will be applied as long as each payment is made before or on renewal date. Customers must use their unique referral code. Limited to one credit per customer. Offer ends December 31st 2021 11:59 EST, referred customer must activate by that time. Eligible customers will receive a monthly SMS confirmation when credit has been applied to the account. Credit will be applied within the first week of each month, starting in January.

I believe it is a good deal but it isn't a new one.

I signed up with "3GBBONUS" a year after that promo was supposed to apply, so about 6 weeks ago now, and it still worked just fine.

Good deal, they do this every year. Thumbs Up Sign
Get your sim card from Amazon for $6.95 (current price link below) and if you're a new customer and don't have a refer-a-friend number go look at the reviews (amazon link below) plenty of refer a friend numbers there, so you'll get $10 off your next month's bill. Be sure to sign up with your credit card as well so you get $2 off each month.

I thought in previous years, we could just login and add it ourselves?

If everyone is eligible, they should consider just opening it up to login and apply it ourselves after the 15th for those that don’t get a text and for those having issues/glitches with replies smh.

Yes that's true, you used to have to sign into your account and add it as an add-on. I guess they are changing it up this year.

I jumped on the Black Friday 2 sim cards for $5 deal and returned the one I had bought at London Drugs. The person there said to me that the sim card is free if I activated at London Drugs (or other Public Mobile partnered locations, I'm assuming). Just pointing this out if people don't want to pay for a sim card.

It's an addon so yes, it's a great deal. This isn't reoccurring, one time use and they do this every year. Your 3gbbonus code for new activations have nothing in common with this promo.

Yes to the above as, last year, I had the rep at my local Walmart sign me up with a free sim, using a code from a fellow RFD. Then I received the free add-ons, then sent my referral code to a fellow RFD. Pretty easy referrals and the plan fits my needs; bonus data and LD minutes are a nice gift too.

When I first joined public mobile I bought my SIM card from Walmart and they charged me $10.
Strange how some places charge and some places don't. I've since bought multiple SIM cards from Amazon and set people up, usually it's less than $10 there. Anyway, I'm very happy with public mobile.

I would much prefer DIY method of adding bonuses manually in previous years, instead of making customer wait for the invitation txt. Extra hoop to jump through.

I agree. Easier that way. However, I think that the website was swamped with logins with previous holiday giveaways. Maybe that is why PM changed the details this time around. Also, some customers opted out of PM texts, which may cause issues in obtaining this promotion.
