Telus Extends Six Months Unlimited Local Calling & 6PM Early Evenings Promotion

Over the last few months, Telus launched two promotions that gave customers six months of unlimited local calling and free 6PM early evenings ($7 value). The Canadian wireless carriers usually provide one month or no months of unlimited local calling, so to come out with six months is definitely a Canadian first.

Six Months Unlimited Local Calling Promotion

The six months unlimited calling promotion for Telus, released in March, was set to expire on May 31, 2010. Telus has now extended the six month unlimited calling promotion until August 3, 2010.

The six months unlimited local calling bonus is available on the following 3-year term in-market plans from Telus:

  • Clear Choice plans for phones
  • Clear Choice plans for Smartphones
  • iPhone plans
  • Clear Choice Share Plans

All new activations will automatically have the six months unlimited local calling bonus automatically added upon activation. The promotion is for new activations only (does not apply to existing customers).

6PM Early Evenings Promotion

Effective this week, new Telus customers that sign up on any Clear Choice iPhone plan will receive 6PM evenings for free ($7 value). This promotion originally expired on May 3, 2010 but has now been extended until further notice.

The early evening calling bonus is available on the following 3-year term iPhone plans:

  • Clear Choice $50
  • Clear Choice $65
  • Clear Choice $80
  • Clear Choice $100

The promotion is also available on the following price plans:

  • Clear Choice plans for phones
  • Clear Choice plans for Smartphones
  • Clear Choice Share Plans

All new activations will have the 6PM Early Evening Calling bonus automatically added upon activation.

    my brother and i both came from telus. i left 2 years ago, he left 2 months ago for the same reason.
    Bad reception, Bad service. and when things go wrong, you call the help line, some how its always your fault lol

    others might have better luck, but i personally would never trap myself in a telus contract ever again lol

    This is a really questionable marketing tactic. Signed onto Telus in April in order to get their original early evenings promo which was “scheduled” to end April 30 only to have them extend it twice up until August! If I knew they would keep doing that, I would have waited until the new iphone came out.

    Anyone notice that on their website it says “unleashing June 8th”. Is that in reference to the iphone?

  • Telus nevers tells anyone their “best” promotions until they are about to fade away. My friends in Montreal, Vancouver or Toronto never received a notice of ANY SUCH promotions in the envelopes with their monthly bills. When they called in to Telus to complain they were told its really for NEW clients….So I suggested to them that they quit TELUS and come back as NEW clients or leave for good and become NEW clients elsewhere (ie: Rogers, Bell, Fido, Wind, Fart, etc…). Just remember to tell your Telus telephone customer representative that it will take $ 5,000 of marketing to find a new Telus client versus giving you a $ 500 discount on a cell phone plan. So what do they want to do spend $ 5,000 or $ 500 ??

  • Telus is “unleashing” the HTC Triumph and other such Android cell phones on June 8th, 2010. It has nothing to do with the iPhone. I spoke to Telus Cda yesterday and they are NOT going to have the new iPhone 4G until July 2010 at the earliest.

  • No. It's a new HTC device.

  • It's for an HTC device apparently.
