Zoomer 36$ plan with 5GB data/800 min anytime/unlimited txt - NO REFERRALS

Deal Link:
Price:
$36
Expiry:
March 31, 2020
Retailer:
Zoomer Wireless
Always check the latest update first.

The promotional plan is currently listed on their website, and is available through the phone or chat.

For a two-year contract, you get a cheap free phone and $100 bill credits. New phone will be shipped with a free SIM card.

Currently , no contract needed for BYOD customer (no $100 credit as well).

Plan is $36 for 5GB LTE data, unlimited international texts, 800 anytime Canadawide minutes.

After six months, you can get the loyalty plan with 4GB data, unlimited minutes and enhanced voicemail for the same price.

Zoomer is on Rogers network with free extended coverage. It also has international roaming packages (not roam like home).

$50 referral credit is available, but soliciting referrals in thread is strictly against forum rules.

If you need unlimited talking, then you can choose the $40.50 plan with 6GB data.

I think Zoomer will soon update their loyalty plans with more data.

Thread Summary
Thread summary by @rolomonster and from original thread here with some updates:
zoomer-wireless-hot-36-2gb-lte-400-dayt ... st-2074500

$36 Promo Plan Details:
800 Canada-Wide Anytime Minutes
5GB of LTE Data
UNLIMITED Text, Picture and Video Messages (Canada & International)
UNLIMITED Zoomer-to-Zoomer calling Canada-Wide
Voicemail, Call Display, Name Display, Call Waiting & Conference Calling
Free cheap phone with 2 year term

PLUS: Earn a $25 ($50 sometimes) Referral Credit by getting a referral from a current Zoomer Customer
*Referral credits for new accounts only and must stay with Zoomer for 30 days or credit gets clawed back from both accounts

There are also plans available with 6gb and unlimited calls for $40.50/month.

Note: Changes between promos must happen within the first 30 days of service or you risk losing double everything + bonus data. Any changes afterward would be after 6 months months of service when upgrading to one of their Loyalty Plans. But as with anything, YMMV.

FAQs:

1. How do I sign up for this awesome plan?

By activating a chat session with a Zoomer rep or calling in. They will perform a credit check when signing you up. If you have poor credit, you can put in a $150 deposit and still get this plan! Zoomer will then ship you phone and SIM card. Delivery usually takes 2-3 days but YMMV. Don't forget to get a referral from a current Zoomer customer as you will each get a $25 bill credit.

2. Is this plan available on BYOD?

No. Plans listed above are only available on 2 year contract. If you want the cheapest buyout option get the lowest value phone ($100) as an emergency back up phone to sell/donate/trade in. Your buyout cost would then be $100÷24xmonths left on your contract. Or alternatively you can get a better free phone and sell it to reduce your overall costs.

3. What phone is best to get with this plan?

Usually it is the phone free on the $40 plan that listed on their website.

4. Can I use my own phone with Zoomer?

Yes. Zoomer sends you a 3 in 1 SIM that will fit into full sized, micro, or nano SIM card slots. If you have an unlocked Android you may need to enter in the Rogers LTE APN listed below. If you have an unlocked LG device, you may need to factory reset your phone after updating your APN. YMMV

5. What if 800 anytime minutes is not enough for me?

You can use apps like Hangouts for outgoing calls using data/wifi, opt for the $40.50 Plan which includes unlimited calls, or ask Zoomer for add-ons for the first 6 months. After 6 months you may be eligible for a Loyalty Plan which includes unlimited Canada Wide talk.

6. What are these Loyalty Plans I keep hearing about?

Loyalty Plans are plans available to customers that have been with Zoomer for at least 6 months of service but YMMV if these will continue to be offered in the future. To date: $36, $40.5, $45, $54 and $72 Family Plans all seem to still be available. For more info, check the Zoomer Loyalty Plan thread here: zoomer-wireless-zoomer-loyalty-cell-pho ... t-2058700/
*Loyalty Plan thread is listed as Expired Deal, but is still available to date. But YMMV

7. What type of SIM does Zoomer send out to new customers?

3 in 1 SIM which can be punched into full, micro or nano.

8. How long is this plan/ referral available until?

Referral credit is always at $25 but occasionally gets bumped to $50 during promos and special offers YMMV.

9. Does Zoomer have any retail locations?

No. But they have the best customer service of any company I personally have been with and I've been with quite a few. Activate a chat session to chat online or give them a call to sign up/ask any questions. Reps are quick, super friendly and knowledgible.

10. What happens after my 2 year contract is over?

You can either sign another 2 year commitment and get another subsidized device or just continue on with the plan you have (including, of course, the bonus data) at the same price - bonus minutes / data does not go away and the price does not go up at all.

Great find! The latest edition of the Zoomer magazine I received didn't show the $36 for 2 gig deal. The $54 deal was there. Also a $22.50 plan for 300 Canada wide minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends, unlimited text. The talk and text plan comes with the LG K4 (2017) phone.

The phone offering is shit and has gotten worse. 2017 J3 in 2018, WTF! I would wait until they up the referral credit to $50 and release new phones.

That being said, if you're desperate for a decent plan with data now, then take the cheapest flip phone. Closest 2GB LTE plan is Public Mobile at $45, it's $55 for 1GB everywhere else now.

No silly noob questions before posting please, read the thread summary.

Glad this is back, I've been with Zoomer for 7 months now, and am now on the loyalty plan.

It was painless to change over, just had to ask through chat. I actually messaged a day early and they offered to auto do it the next day instead of telling me to chat or call back! Amazing CS! I wish there were more services, can't stand some of the BIG 3 I'm stuck with for TV/Internet. I'd switch over in a heartbeat if they offered other things.

We have 2 lines and no complaints at all. I have also send a few friends to them and they are all happy so far.

If you don't like the phone, the plan is still great. I would suggest getting the lowest value flip phone and bringing your own device. This is what I did over a year ago and I have absolutely no regrets.

I now have 1 x $45 4gb Loyalty Plan, 1 x $22.50 300 daytime talk/text plan, and $10 Home Phone plan.

Best customer service I have ever had with a wireless company.

Only downside is the phone they offer are not top line. Other than that, all good. 2G data is enough for me. After 6 months, I switched to loyalty plan by chat, even happier.

I've been with Zoomer for over three years and can also vouch for them. They operate through Cityfone which is owned by Rogers so you get the Roger's network without the high prices and with much better customer service!

As has been mentioned, they don't have the best phone selection but you can always sell the one you get from them to help further reduce your cost or put the money towards a phone of your choice.

How often does the $10 home phone deal come around? I would love to get that. I have the Rogers home phone plan that started out at $10 but they add a dollar to the price every couple of years.

And there is also a free CARP membership. I read in the CARP magazine that it gets you 20% off at Rexall!
