Judging the response of this thread, this is not a good promo when comparing the second month free prom in early May.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $36 5GB, $12 250MB, 2x $7 50min/50text, Fido $5 4GB data only plan with a free tablet,
Zoomer $36 loyalty 4GB plan, $0 FPL home phone. Have a better and better day!

It's depends on what the new customer is looking for. It can work for some people, but these one-time data bonuses have never been really that well received in my opinion.

That doesn't help the new customer (unless the referring person is paying for both accounts). Also, that's only valid for customer who at the start of that promotion, had never referred anyone before.

I signed up for this, I plan to port two lines from Koodo. I received an email today about the deal, which includes the following:

"Congrats! Your email was received and is eligible for our limited time flash sale. In order to redeem the offer, activate your Public Mobile SIM card online on any plan $25/mo or higher by June 12, 2020 and get your next 30 days for $0*.
. Dont forget to enter the promo code: FREE3GB.

[small print] *Offer available to new customers who submitted their email address online between May 26 and 28. Customers must then activate online using the same email address they submitted on the Flash sale landing page by June 12 2020 at 11:59PM ET. Offer is stackable with other promotions."

Am I right to assume that this deal also includes the second month for free?! Also, any idea what other promotions I might be able to stack with this? I'll use the referral bonus for one account.

There is currently no 30 days of free service offer. For that, the service had to have been activated by May 22.

Also, I hope that you submitted two different e-mail addresss for this offer. Each account needs to be openeed using a different e-mail address.

If you're talking about the $20 credit for someone who has never referred someone before, you wouldn't be eligible as that only applies to people who were customers of Public Mobile as of May 14.

Did your actual email state?
.....get your next 30 days for $0*.

Probably a typo or glitch from the previous flash promotion. This promotion is get 3GB data add on.

You should get friend referral for both accounts ideally also.

Ya, it said that. This morning they sent a follow-up, clarifying that it was only the 3GB :\ Probably as you say; a carry-over from the last promo. Ohhh well.

For those who signed up their email address, need to activate by June 12. There is a time limited promotion to buy a PM SIM card for $5 from PM website. If you order in next day or so, you likely will get the SIM card by June 12.

I ordered a SIM card last week on Amazon as a Prime member and I'm still waiting. Unfortunately they used Canadpost and it's stuck in Brampton, On. It would usually take a day but this is ridiculous!!

I guess I'm going to miss out on the 3gb if I don't get the card tomorrow.

Did provide your e-mail address May 26-28 to Public Mobile for this promotion?

There are people who will provide the sim card number ahead of time for you to activate, but by doing that, your plan starts as soon as the activation is complete.

Usually prime delivery is quick. A few options. If you live near a vendor like Walmart or Mobile shop (inside Superstore), you could buy a SIM card and use the other SIM card for future (ie. friend referral, etc). There is another Flash promo this week that is also attractive. It ends today for sign up. For $35 + plan, get $10 credit for 6 months. You can sign up the email address and then activate later on. You might want to try another email address for sign up this separate flash promo (to be on safe side).

Yes I did.

I don't understand, I would use someone else's SIM and then I would switch it to mine when I get it?
