Buy or Pick Up Public Mobile SIM Cards in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto Nov. 18-19 [u]


Public Mobile’s promo $38/4GB plan (after credit card auto renew) expires this Sunday, November 20th, and the company has already stopped advertising the deal on its website, since online SIM card orders won’t deliver in time for the weekend.

But in an effort to reach out to last minute sign-ups, the company has announced SIM card pick-up locations in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, taking place November 18-19 only, from 11am-7pm local time.

Two Public Mobile reps will be dressed in white with orange capes ready to sell you SIM cards, which will be limited to two per person, at $5 each. Only credit cards and Visa debit cards will be accepted as payment, with all sales final.

If you have ordered a SIM card but have not received it yet, you can show your Shopify order confirmation email (printed or digital) to pick up your SIM card.

Here are the three locations:

25 York Street
Toronto Ontario
M5J 2V5

Vancouver (update Nov. 18: sold out for Nov. 18–note new address!)
TELUS Garden
NEW: Corner of Richards Street and West Georgia Street
Vancouver British Columbia
V6B 0M3

630 René-Lévesque Boulevard West
Montreal Quebec
H3B 3C1

Public Mobile says SIM card quantities are limited, so they will be evenly distributed on both Friday and Saturday. Let us know if you’re planning to go pick some up!

    Is it still possible to get the deal even though it’s not advertised on the website?

  • Yes. It’s on the activation page. Not on the plans page.

    Shopify order confirmation email? So an ordinary confirmation email wont work?

    I went for a SIM card to Telus Garden in Vancouver as it mentioned above but there is no SIM card at the Telus shop in the building. Does anybody know exactly where it is or phone number?

  • I believe they are setting up a kiosk in the lobby of the building not the Telus shop.

    I bet it’s Saturday and Sunday not fri and sat. I’m at the Telus building downtown. Nothing there. Will check tomorrow.

  • They said Friday ans Saturday. Toronto had line ups today. Tweet them and find out let us know what they say. You’re the second person to bring this up.
