[Telus Mobility] [ON] Telus 25 GB Peace of mind Winback - 45$ YMMV

Retailer:
Telus Mobility
More offers from Telus Mobility
For anyone who missed the winback deal last year, they have it running again (Not sure how long). I recall previously, this plan was only offered to users that went to Freedom, this may still be the case as I am on Freedom. YMMV.


- I am located in Toronto, Ontario. I ported out of Telus about 3-4 months ago and got a callback today around 9 PM EST.
- 1-888-369-9826 is the number they call me from
- BOYD, no contract, no expiary
- I was with Telus but swapped to Freedom because of WFH, so didn't need much data
- Peace of Mind 25gb plan (Plan details attached in picture)
- Activation fee waved + First month free credit
- 37.5$ per line if you activate 2 lines or 30$ per line if you activate 3 lines
- They will ask for 2 pieces of ID to do a CREDIT CHECK

First deal post, go easy on me.

Below are instructions I took from @DizzyYak post from last year. CURRENT OFFER IS 55$ for 20GB. Minus 7.5$ for each additional line. Confirmed by myself and multiple users

How to get the offer if you are currently with Telus or Koodo
1. Setup a new Freedom prepaid or postpaid account. Prepaid is suggested as it doesn't involve a credit check. You can choose the cheapest plan they offer which is $9/month.
2. Port out your number to Freedom mobile using Freedom's online chat. Then wait for the "sorry to see you leave" email from Telus/Koodo
3. Call back into the toll free number to ask if you qualify for the win-back promotion offer. 1-866-369-9826 / 1-866-379-1963
4. Once your SIM card has shipped out, go to your Telus account online and port your Freedom number back into Telus


How to get the offer if you are with another provider
1. Setup a new Freedom prepaid or postpaid account. Prepaid is suggested as it doesn't involve a credit check. You can choose the cheapest plan they offer which is $9/month.
2. Setup a new Telus postpaid account (most people are picking the $75/20GB plan). This will invoke a credit check.
3. Port out your new Telus number to Freedom mobile using Freedom's online chat. Porting will take 1-3hours. Then wait for the "sorry to see you leave" email from Telus/Koodo
4. Call back into the toll free number to ask if you qualify for the win-back promotion offer. 1-888-369-9826
5. Once your SIM card has shipped out, go to your Telus account online and port your Freedom number back into Telus. It may take up to 48hours for your account to become active online.
6. Port in your real phone number to Telus

I believe you would have to leave first as this is a Winback offer and may only be offered if you leave for Freedom (unconfirmed).

How did you get $37.50/month for 2 lines? I got 2 lines before and was given a $5 discount per line.

EDIT: I found out that they upped the multi line discount! Guess I'll be making a call to Telus tomorrow.

I would instantly switch my entirely family 5+ to this plan from various other carriers if offered this. Problem is the miss is the only one on Telus, and she might kill me if I switch her to Freedom and this doesn’t work :(

Can anyone confirm if this is just a loyalty thing from a switchover company? I'm already with Telus and with my Telus discount this would be an amazing deal.

The way I did it accidentally last year is this:
Buy a new Telus line, no plan, no frills, the cheapest.
Cancel it next day/ next week.
They will call you for Winback in few weeks - month.
Then you port in your current number.

<s> I will be making a call as well as I have this plan for 4 lines and I paid 35 per line.</s>

Never mind, I pay $30 per line. So I am good.

I did the switch and got the same deal last year. Bought a freedom sim from eBay because it isn't available where I live. I'll hold this plan as long as I possibly can.

But if you cancel the Telus line without porting. How can they call you :(

I was recently offered $55 for 20 GB as a winback offer, roughly two days ago.

With three lines, it comes out to $55 - $10 = $45.

I wonder if I can still get this deal as well.

You absolutely have to port to freedom to get this deal. There is no if or but.

It will be funny if Telus is reading this thread and cancels the promo, leaving everyone stranded on 9 dollar plans

I received a letter with the sim in it and phone number to call. I was getting emails with the same offer to call them back- sorry to see you leave type. I was even getting Facebook pop ups with the offer. It was unreal.

I moved away from Telus in 2014. I wonder if there is a way I could initiate a winback with my previous account. I'd bring over 4-5 lines.
