Customers of the Telus prepaid brand, Public Mobile, received some ‘switcher’ deals this afternoon to sister company Koodo Mobile, offering some enticing plans with data. The text messages appear to have targeted Public Mobile users on the company’s $38/4GB plan (after Autopay).
Public Mobile sent out the following image saying “Deal or more deal,” and detailing a $35/5GB plan or $40/8GB plan with unlimited Canada-wide calling, which includes $180 in bill credits if customers “Switch to Koodo.”
Data overages are billed at $7/100MB or $70/1GB, and this offer is small and medium tab eligible.
The full text message reads:
Switch to Koodo and get 5GB of data for $35/month OR 8GB of data for $40/month! PLUS $180 in bill credits. Plans include unlimited Canada-wide minutes & unlimited international text. You may be eligible for a $0 phone with the Koodo Tab. Switch online at https://Koo.do/choosekoodo or at your nearest Koodo location and use promo code JOINKOODOAUGDATA by September 4th, 2018.

Potential switchers are told to use the promo code JOINKOODOAUGDATA on Koodo’s website by September 4, 2018.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Telus try to convince prepaid Public Mobile users to jump over to a postpaid plan on Koodo Mobile.
Back in February of this year, a $40/5GB plan plus $100 credit was offered, while in March, users saw a $40/6GB plan with $100 credit offered.
Now, we’re seeing $40/8GB being offered with $180 in bill credits. Those Public Mobile users on the $38/4GB plan (after Autopay) who held out, this latest switcher offer looks the best so far.
