4gb plan $40 IF you can find a SIM purchased within guideline YMMV

Deal Link:
Expiry:
February 3, 2017
Retailer:
Public Mobile
First time poster, long timer lurker. According to Public Mobiles website, If some redflaggers can find a SIM purchased when the sale was active, you can get the plan of the century BUT for a limited time; Feb 3rd to be exact.

Only reason I made the post, is cause I know some people bought the SIM but never used it and were once looking to sell. They will ask for the order number to get the promotion from PUBLIC, if you dont have it, they are unable to activate a promotional code.

Huge YMMV. This can be a hot deal for some, for those who missed out, and for the serious who live for the deal, cause that promo was HHOOTTTT

First post, like if you liked it

What about if received a free sim during that period? Can that still work?
Thanks for the upvote! 😁

I don't think the actual SIM matters that much, but you need the invoice number associated with purchase. My point is, they didn't track the SIM #s with each purchase, but they can trace an invoice # to a date. So I think all you would need is a valid invoice # with any SIM no matter when it was purchased.

FYI - I ordered a few more SIMs this past Monday afternoon, and they arrived with the Tuesday mail, so they are quick to ship. ExpressPost.

I really don't understand how this is a deal of a century -IF- the alternative is simply use a dual sim phone. Put a tablet plan with 3 GB of data a month and voice is only around $25. Using extra data is only $10 a month. Even if you use 4 GB, you come to about $35. And you can get this plan much easier without hunting for a specific sim card.

Decent deal, sure. Deal of a century? little bit hyping it up I say?

Buying a dual sim phone will kill your idea for most people.

If that is true, then I do have an invoice number in which I ordered 2 sims, I used one and sold the other. If what you are saying is true then can I not just give the invoice number and activate the discontinued plan with any recently purchased sim ? I can activate at least two more because they never asked for invoice number when I activated my sim that came with that invoice.

I am also agree with this. dual phones are costly, while buying a phone from provider and unlock it is much cheaper & with higher specification.
For example LG G4 , or Samsung S5 neo cost about $100 but dual sim phone cost more then $200 with less specification. I need to buy Dual sim phone but not able to find any attractive deal so for time being I am using two different phones.

Anyone who got their plan renewed for 3 months again from the original $40/4gb plan realize you paid less than what you should? Ie. I should have paid $35 w/ auto&referral but will be paying $31 b/c they calculated referral wrong

Yes - my daughter got about $27 in referral credits last week on her renewal - I think she was expecting about $10

The original promotion was $40 6GB a month, correct? Is this one offering 6GB or 4GB?

Orig deal was 12GB for 90 days - averages out to 4GB month, but you can use the 12GB over the 90days however you want.

You have $6 in available funds from your first payment where the discount hadn't applied yet and you paid $120.
$120 - $6 available funds - $9 Refer a friend - $6 Auto-pay = $33/month

FYI, not the best place to use the plan. This plan is a provincial-only plan. Assuming you are using an Ottawa based telephone number, means you cannot call out to anyone in the Gatineau area (819) nor can you use your phone physically in the Gatineau area ....without purchasing long distance minutes ($8 for 200 minutes or $15 for 400 minutes).

That may or may not matter to you depending on your usage, but just something to keep in mind as its pretty much a deal breaker for those who live in cities that are on provincial borders.

Always pos(t)ers who hate on a threads IF it doesn't benefit THEM. If you can make use of this deal before its over or can appreciate that someone else can gain, give it an upvote to counter the hate!!

Too much hate in this world! Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyeslol

Always remember everyone has different need and usage. Don't compare yourself to others.
