$25 credit and $0 SIM card (in-store activation of talk, text and data plan at Walmart and London Drugs)

Expiry:
September 6, 2018
Retailer:
Public Mobile
At Walmart and London Drugs there's a new promo for $25 credit and $0 SIM card if you activate in-store on any talk, text and data plan by Sept. 6.

Details seem to be identical for both stores:

If you get a referral, you can also add in the $10 referral reward credit - if you go for e.g., the $40/4.5 GB promo plan and do autopay, that's just about your whole second month paid for ($25 promo credit + $10 referral credit + $2 autopay reward [month 1] + $2 autopay credit [month 2] = $39).

Also available is a potentially better deal at WOW mobile boutique, depending on what plan you're getting: wow-mobile-public-mobile-free-sim-secon ... e-2213824/

Edit: Some people have reported qualifying for this promo on a cheaper, data-less plan (even the $10 plan). If you do that and stack with autopay and referral rewards, you could have 4 (or almost 5) months of service for just the $10 + tax you pay for the initial plan fee when you sign up.

How is that better? Better for you maybe, not better for the person activating.

It's better for the Referrer but not the friend.

Public Mobile will likely make an announcement today or tomorrow on their website with the formal announcement. Depending on start date, I guess. I just checked... nothing yet

Dang! I went and ordered the SIM online (activated yesterday) and forked out the extra $10 :(
I did get the $25 referral credit though, thanks to one of the users here.

Comparison of the online activation by Aug 9th with 25 referral reward credit each, versus in-store activation Aug 10-29 at London Drugs

online activation:
Referrer: 25 referral credit
Friend (Activator): 25 referral credit - 10 sim card

in-store activation:
Referrer: 10 referral credit
Friend (Activator): 10 referral credit + 25 credit

So in-store activation is $5 better if you do a self referral.

in-store activation:
Referrer: 10 referral credit $1/30 days (as long as new customer remains a customer)
Friend (Activator): 10 referral credit + 25 credit

I think you meant $20 better as online referral nets your (Friend - Activator) $15 whereas In-Store nets $35. Self-Referral (online) is better if you already have another line.

Supposedly. WOW mobile might have a better deal (depending on which plan you choose) with free SIM card and free 2nd month. Source: will13am (one of the Oracles on Public Mobile Forum). Too many deals to follow..... Probably starts tomorrow also....
