[Virgin Mobile] Virgin Mobile - Tablet Plan 3 GB/month for $15/month, iPad (2017) $19/month x 24m financing in store

Apologies if this is a duplicate, but seeing that there's a separate thread for the Fido 3GB/$15/month plan which requires one to have an existing Fido, it appears that Virgin Mobile has a similar offering -- except you don't need to be an existing customer.
  • 3 GB / month
  • $15/month
  • iPad available for $19/month, $0 down
  • $25 connection fee applies

** Edit
Forgot to mention, the iPad is 32 GB, space grey only . You have to pay the tax of the tablet up front. It's also the LTE version (so you can connect to the network).

From Apple's website: https://www.apple.com/ca/shop/buy-ipad/ipad-9-7Apple iPad 9.7 2017 - Retails for $619

Pretty hot.


Virgin member bonuses make it even better.
Not 100% sure, but I don't think you need to get the tablet. I just needed one so I got one as well.

I'm seeing a $25.63 monthly payment on their site.

Am I missing something?

Not sure here is fine print
For a limited time, get the Apple iPad for $19.22/mo on a 2-year installment plan. Head to a Virgin Mobile store for details.

If you buy a Tablet online on a 24-month payment plan, we'll pre-authorize your Credit Card for the total price of the Tablet. But don't worry, we'll remove the pre-authorization 3 to 5 business days after the date of purchase.

Please point us to $15 monthly 3gb tablet data plan that doesn't require existing phone acct. Hotness here is the plan and ability to unload the new tablet at no loss.

So is this an effective alternative data only cell plan to the Fido since it works for new customers? Wish I could just get the Fido one, but have to be existing customer.

32gb? Yikes. Nobody wants them thus trying to pawn them off. Not nearly enough storage imo and many others.

Better deal than Fido if you ask me. Better network, don't need to be a customer.

I must be missing something here you can get the 3gb tablet plan for $15/m which is fine, however I was critcizing the tablet and it's cost. why not get the grand x view 2 for free and unload that to subsize the monthly plan ? and you could get the fido 3gb $15/m from previous sales without a line, I know because I have one. can you please explain to me what makes this so flaming hot to buy a tablet and unload it at the risk of selling it at a loss after taxes are calculated ? perhaps its the shiny apple device owner status you get from it ?

a 32gb IPad running a9 with 2gb of memory, which if d1ulove3's post is correct where you must use it with the plan since it is imei locked, then I guess nowhere at the moment. Good luck with this deal tell me how to works out for you when you get it.

Would you rather pay 612 up front plus taxes with no data plan? It's a good deal for those who need a free iPad LTE with a data plan. You can probably sell it off for 250 to 300 in 2 yrs.
