If you’re with Shaw’s Freedom Mobile, you may want to check your text messages, as the company is giving away free data to select customers.
A recent text message from Freedom Mobile sent out late last week reads as follows:
Freedom Mobile Special Offer: ____, we want to say thank you for being a Freedom customer by gifting you with an extra 5GB/month of Freedom data for 24 months! Surf, stream and post as much as you want. Now that’s Freedom!
Customers don’t need to do anything as the data bonus is automatically applied to a user’s account, as numerous Freedom Mobile customers on Reddit confirmed.
It’s not unusual for wireless carriers to offer customers free data at random. We’ve seen Rogers-owned Fido do this last year. With the federal government promising to lower cellphone prices by 25% within two years, carriers may be trying to pad data numbers within accounts ahead of any regulations that may be coming.
Did you get this free 5GB bonus data offer from Freedom Mobile?
