expired Virgin Mobile and Broadband: Existing Members May Be Able to Get 1GB Data Free for 3 Months
This was posted 3 years 1 month 6 days ago, and might be an out-dated deal
Virgin is offering some of it's members 1GB free for 3 months, if you are with them on certain plans.
You can log into the lounge to check out the offers. I've included links where I can.
Your Cap recharges - get 1GB free (per recharge?) … 5GB limit
phones on a 12 or 24 month plan - sign up and get the 1st 3 months free, but remember to tell them before it's up, if you want to stay on the plan or not ($15 a month afterwards for 1GB data)
12 or 24 month plan
Get a bonus of 1GB automatically added for each of the next 3 months.
You don't have to do anything, apart from know about the bonus so you can use your extra download (if you wish)
That's about it.
Also, some OzB members report customer service is good. Others say it's not good.
Follow the terms and conditions, maybe keep a copy. Hopefully it'll all go right. But otherwise, contact customer service and if that doesn't go well, you might want to contact the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman, as discussed in here.
UPDATE 12 May 2010
There may be a similar looking deal on offer that is not the previous one.
I'm getting charged a data subscription under the old plan but I'm also being given a credit each month (that's in the terms and conditions when I signed up).
One person reports that they aren't getting the monthly credit at the moment and were told that the credits only come at the end of 3 months. We will see if that really is true.
