The Great Canadian #SIMswap

An empty coconut - totally useless
By: Lisa Ng

A sponsored post.

I am a minimalist and I LOVE getting rid of useless things. 

My husband and I used to live in a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house. We downsized into a 650 square foot condo so we could travel more and got rid of a lot of stuff in the process! I didn’t realize how many useless things I had until I realized I was able to live without them.

What useless item do you have in your house? Is there something you’ve been meaning to get rid of?

This sparkler is about to be useless

What if I told you that you could trade that useless item in for a free brand new SIM card from Public Mobile as part of their #SIMswap campaign?

Go on and take a picture of your useless item, share the photo on Instagram or Twitter and tag @PublicMobile + the hashtag #SIMswap. On Facebook all you have to do is post the photo to Public Mobile’s wall. Public Mobile will message you with a unique URL and you can order your brand new SIM card. They’ll send you a little surprise and may even feature your useless item in an ad!


What’s different about Public Mobile? 

They’re a DIY online kind of communication carrier company. You can bring your own phone, build your own plan and earn rewards online to bring your costs down more. Plus - it’s prepaid so there are no contracts or nasty surprise bills. Having no contract gives me the freedom to activate the phone whenever I want and the flexibility to make changes if I need to do so. SIM Swap is a fun way for people to get to know Public Mobile and really see what makes them awesome. 

Do you need a new cellphone?

I’m giving ONE lucky reader a chance to WIN an Alcatel Phone + One Year of FREE Service from Public Mobile. Just tell us in the comments below the one useless item you would trade-in for a new phone + include your email address so I can get a hold of you if you win.

No purchase is necessary to enter the contest, however the winner will be chosen at random on Monday September 26th, 2016. Open to Canadian addresses only.

  22. I have a collection of useless things I would trade in lol. But specifically I would trade in the "windows' phone my daughter purchased with her Christmas money, I should have known it was too good to be true, totally useless and unreliable! She has just started high school this year and is new to bussing and after school clubs and could really use a realiable trustworthy phone.. not the 40 dollar online boxing day sale phone that's proven to be a disaster haha. Great giveaway, thank you for the chance :)
