This is great, though I never go over my data. The teenager will be thrilled!

Sad thing is that I'm on vacation in Romania and for $10 CAD I got 1000 texts and minutes and 70 GB of 4G data. Not to mention that I played a game in the Vodafone app (cell service company) and won 100 extra GB of data. Now I have to use 170 GB of data in 10 days. But hey, good thing PM is giving away an extra 1GB of data, right?

How is this a deal though? Every customer is getting this. Not sure it belongs in this section.

What’s up for grabs:

$0 1 GB bonus data Add-On
Does not expire until fully consumed
The data speed will match the speed of the data that is included as part of your rate plan. If your rate plan doesn’t include data, the Add-On will default to be at 4G LTE Speed.

Exactly.. and it's not a deal that a non-customer can get. It should be posted in the Cell Phone discussion forum.

So just an additional 1GB in case you go over. It's very nice that it doesn't expire, but even better that it's free Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Probably for visibility. A fraction of users would see it in the discussion forum.

OP, why did you bother posting this on August 22. Per the terms, you had to have the account open and in good standing on August 19 or earlier. The expiry is not September 4. It should be August 19. Effectively, you posted an expired deal.

I like how they silently changed the default if you have no data from 3G to 4G LTE speeds.
Good on them. The normal 1 GB data add-on defaults to 4G LTE speeds if your plan has no data. It'd be a sort of dick move to have this add-on default to 3G speeds.

If you have an android phone you can set the data limits. I usually keep the warning a little ahead of data stop to keep some buffer.

Send a private message to the PM moderators.
Not sure if it's fixed, but there previously was a bug where your monthly data bucket would not reset properly.
