Cheapest Cellphone Plans in Canada
For those of us that don't live in Saskatchewan or Manitoba, keep reading for a less expensive plan (relatively speaking) available to ALL Canadians, regardless of the province you live in.
I just had to let my friends and customers know about the cellphone plans I've just discovered!
I hate forking out $40/month for 1 GB data and 500 minutes Canada Wide calling. That's what I've been paying with Koodo for the last couple years. I actually thought that was a pretty good rate based on price shopping over the past month.
A short while ago I stumbled across Public Mobile, a subsidiary of Telus, the same as Koodo. $40/month gives me 4.5 GB data with Unlimited Canada Wide Calling and Unlimited International Texting!! An extra $5/month nets you 5.5 GB data. (just noticed, the $45 plan now includes 6GB of data!!)
To receive your $25 one-time credit, you must activate your account ONLINE ONLY by September 23, 2018 AND during activation you must enter in the friend's referral number 403-602-0166. It must be a 30 or 90 day plan. https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/ab/get-started
Receive $2.00/month discount if you sign up for automatic renewal ... so now you're down to $38/month!!
Receive $1.00/month discount for every friend who you refer, for as long as they continue their account, up to the cost of your plan. (Have ya got 40 friends?)
The data is 3G speed which is slower than 4G. For web browsing, Facebook, emails, texting and most other tasks 3G speed is plenty fast enough. I was watching a Netflix movie this morning with no problem.
First step is to order a SIM Card for $10 (the usual cost). It will be sent out by Express Post so you should have it in a day or two. You need to receive the SIM and activate it by September 23, 2018 to get the $25 credit so I wouldn't wait too long! https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/ab/get-started
I try to keep up to date and regularly check the Public Mobile promotions and plans, but if you see new promotions or plans when you go to their website, please let me know at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will update our webpage.
