You may want to check your text messages if you’re a Virgin Mobile customer, as a new data add-on offer was sent out yesterday.
The targeted message from Bell-owned Virgin Mobile says, “Member, exclusive offer coming through! Add 5GB of extra data to your line for only $10/mo. Reply ‘Y’ to add now. The 5GB will be applied immediately & will remain on your account until you remove it.”
The message further states, “this monthly charge will appear on your next bill and won’t cover any existing overages.” The offer comes from sender 433274 and it ends on June 5, 2020.
Someone else on RFD also mentioned receiving a similar offer but at $15 for 10GB, however, no screenshot was shared showing that price to verify it was authentic indeed.
The price for gigabyte works out to $2 each, which is a steal compared to Virgin Mobile’s regular pricing for extra data. If you received this offer and you’re always close to your monthly data limit, it may be worth considering.
Current data overages from Virgin are billed at $10/100MB up to 800MB, then $0.15/MB after, or $1.50/10MB ($15/100MB or $150/1GB). Your first 1GB in data overages from Virgin Mobile will cost $110 (yikes).
