RingPlus, a Sprint MVNO has a promo which will start this Thursday, 8/27 at 3 pm PDT.

See their current plans at https://ringplus.net/. These would be for new members. Current members should look at the VIP promos that were on the last promo. Look a few posts down on this thread on the Discourse https://discourse.ringplus.net/t/...-over/4255

Pepper > VIP Pepper WILL be allowed.

New Promo Thursday, August 27, 3-9pm PDT

For New Member Sign Ups:

New subscribers to each Unlimited Talk and Text paid plan get an added 1 GIG each month
New subscribers to each Free Pepper plan get additional 250 MB added each month.
New subscribers to any other paid plan get an additional 250 MB each month
New Subscribers to the Free Plan get 100 MB added each month.

In addition a new Free Plan will be offered:

Diversity – Requires a one-time $5.00 Minimum Top Up. (This means you get your money’s worth in usage. It’s not flat activation fee.)

Includes:

A monthly base of 300 Min, 500 Text, 300MB. If you go over in minutes, data, or text, you are charged $4.99. Then you get a bonus package added in whichever category you went over in. These packages consist of 300 Min, 500Texts, or 300MB and they are valid for two months. It’s a bit like rollover.

For example, if you go over your monthly base of 300 Min, you would be charged $4.99 and instantly receive a bonus of 300 Minutes which would not expire for 2 months. And of course the following month you’ll still receive your base allowance.

For existing Members

Side upgrades (Pepper to VIP Pepper, this absolutely fair and we are ok with including it in this promo). And after we reach 300 new Members (Less than a third what we reach normally during a promotions within a hour) what happens?
For every 10 new Members enrolled, loyal members who liked the Live Update Thread will receive 1 more minute, 1 MB Data, up to 200MB Roll Over Allotment (expires after 4 Months).
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

If you are an existing member, and want to enroll in the possible "Rewards Program" (it is "possible" because at least 300 new member must sign up), be sure to enroll at: https://store.ringplus.net/store/...rsity.html
  • Enter your e-mail registered for voicemail and your phone number. ("For existing Members to participate and benefit from the promo, they must use the same email in Discourse that they do for their RingPlus phone line’s voicemail.")
  • It seems you do NOT need to sign up for Discourse, NOR do you need to "like" anything.
  • Also, the link above is NOT for upgrading to the Diversity plan. Rather, the link above appears to be all you need to do to enroll in the possible "Rewards Program".
  • Search for "no just enrolls you in this promo" in https://discourse.ringplus.net/t/...en/4493/18 for clarification by RingPlus_PR.

Update: I now see "Your account <the account>'s add on 50 Minutes / 50 MB - Discourse Promo was renewed for $0.00 taken off of your account balance. See your invoice for more details."
The invoice shows "50 Minutes / 50 MB - Discourse Promo August 30, 2015 - December 28, 2015 $0.00"

Sorry had the wrong quote. Going to log out for now, obviously I'm not awake.

Perhaps because depending on plan selected it is free, as in truly free. Other plans are extremely inexpensive. Many devices can be activated including some inexpensive ones.

First of all, why a new thread when the previous one (http://slickdeals.net/f/8066222-ringplus-is-asking-for-our-help-in-their-next-promo-offering-tonight-starting-at-5pm-pst?v=1&src=SiteSearch&page=3) posted the same deal already.

Also, while the time/day for this promo may be final, the promo details may not. So it is premature to post something that may change with time.

May be mods should merge these threads.

Some of us are paying for monthly plans on Boost and VM, and to cut our plans from $25/35 to $5-10 would be nice. When you only talk 20 mins a month, the network isn't all that important.

There have been separate posts for all the recent promos. People will post on that one too but I know I had trouble finding info specific to the current promos as there is always other topics being discussed. Better to have it in one thread, no?

Promo was taken direct from their site, pretty sure it is what is being offered.

I just switched to vip pepper and it hasn't even started yet (still 2 weeks until next billing cycle starts)

but the diversity looks slightly better. Both required a $5 Top Up but diversity has slightly more minutes, and slightly more data 300/500/300MB vs 250/500/280MB of the vip pepper.

For Diversity a $4.99 charge comes in to play when you go over (any service). So not sure how the $5 top up works, as it seems that would prevent you from going over. May be worth asking on their site.

isn't that how the vip pepper works too? or thats how i imagined it worked Smilie
but since both require minimum $5, I'm guessing the first time you go over, it would pull from your top-up first.
it would seem strange to add a $5 topup, but when the account required some funds, it would ignore the topup and charge you another $5 (4.99) instead
