Hello,

I haven't seen this promo for a while. They use to offer it several time a year.
Anybody knows if they stopped offering this sweet deal?

I'm wondering the same. They were usually quarterly and the last one ended 02 March 2021. The last two actually were offered one after another covering the period between 04 November 2020 and 02 March 2021.

Hopefully we'll see one soon.

I am wanting to top up a phone as well. I have bought two $25 top-ups waiting for the promo. If it doesn't happen soon, I am switch more of my family plans to public mobile. They have unlimited text, few incoming calling, 100 minutes outgoing and 250 megabyte data for $15 a month, which becomes $13 a month for auto pay. You can also get $1 off per month for each person you refer, as long as they stay a customer.
Public mobile also uses bell/SaskTel/Telus network which has better coverage for me.

How exactly would one port the number to Public if they have no Customer Service?

You can port the number when you activate it online or by logging in to the website after you activate. I had an issue porting my number because speak out doesn't have account numbers. But I was able to post an issue on there website and they resolved it quickly. Probably faster than calling and waiting on hold.

I just did the same. Hopefully we haven't seen the end of the promos

I've bought the $25 the last two months as well. However that will be the final time. After skipping Canada Day if the promo doesn't return for Back-To-School I will be taking my main cell line elsewhere.

Although the 100+25 is technically a "bonus" in practice it's been 2-to-3 times a year like clockwork for many years and in my opinion constitutes a sort of "common law" implied expectation. In principle I cannot tolerate the removal of this well established custom.

My main cell line has bounced between the $20 and $25 monthly since 2012. Although Chatr, Wind & Public have since offered Unlimited for the same price as Speakout's 300min plan I haven't really needed Unlimited for the most part and $100+$25 promo is effectively 2 months free each year.

Despite declining call and signal quality since 2019 and increasingly slow & wonky touchtone controls in voicemail retrieval, I've stuck with SpeakOut because I'm an oddball at heart and besides the $25 bonuses I liked that Mobile Data is off by default so my device's firmware, apps, mic & location module can't misbehave autonomously. This also made it impossible to receive & get billed for unwanted "premium messages " - I don't know if that's still a thing nowadays but in the early 2010's it was a concern.

However if the $25 bonus is history that is the equivalent of a 1/6th price increase for me and I'll be forced to say goodbyesf-frown_gif

The public mobile $15 a month, $13 with auto-pay has free incoming calls and 100 minutes of outgoing. You can also get 500 outgoing minutes for $5, so 1 cent per minute. That add-on stays on your account until you use it. So you would probably be less than 20-25 per month with speak out.

OK this is a bit involved so it will take a bit of explaining:

I usually check out the Speakout promotions page fairly regularly looking for the 100+25 promo and, as you guys know, there hasn't been anything lately.

Today I looked at the main page
https://www.speakout7eleven.ca/
and found this banner

BONUS time is back!
Top up your account with a $100 top up
and get $25 account bonus.*
https://www.speakout7eleven.ca/userinfo/activation/topup/
* $25 account bonus with purchase of a $100 top up.

The see promotion button there goes to their 'Plans' page where a notice at the bottom says

*The $100 top up must be added to your account on or before January 4th to receive the $25 account bonus. Free SIM offer valid with $100 SpeakOut top up purchase only. One free SIM card per customer per purchase. SpeakOut Wireless SIM cards are compatible with most unlocked iPhone and Android handsets that are HSPA compatible using 850Mhz frequencies. Shipping charges will apply if ordering online. Other product and company names mentioned herein may be trademarks and/or registered. © Copyright 2021 7-Eleven Canada, Inc. All rights reserved. Promotion valid dates 09/01/21 - 01/04/22. Post Sept 1, 2021. Remove Jan 4, 2022.

Signed in and went to the Top Up page and it is indeed active along with a free SIM card offer although shipping is $17 so no deal there.

Not sure why this isn't on their promotions page but it's nice to see the top up bonus again

You get the $25 bonus if you order the $100 top-up. You do not have to take the free SIM card. Just leave the tick box on the top-up page blank and there should be no shipping charges.
