Grid Mobile Users Get Cashback and 2nd SIM Free

If you have not seen the news, here is one that you might be interested in. A new MNVO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator), Grid Mobile, is in town. Targeted at millennial consumers, it offers competitive pricing plan, points to offset mobile plan bill or merchants’ offer. More importantly, it offers cashback and a 2nd SIM card free.

I read through the Press Release. It is hard to describe clearly here. I think these pictures offer a better explanation.

But before that, if you think Grid Mobile sounds similar, you might remember Grid Communications where PTT (Push-to-Talk) phones were popular then.

Grid Mobile is the brainchild of GRID Communications, a joint venture between Singtel and ST Telemedia, backed by two decades of experience as a leading public push-to-talk (PTT) communications provider in Singapore.

So, let’s move on. Grid Mobile has only one plan at S$24.95 with no contract. It comes with 20GB of data, 200 mins of outgoing calls and 200 SMS.

It offers free Caller ID and incoming calls and SMS. And it offers free 1GB/month TravelRoam (to Malaysia). If you are frequently visiting Malaysia, this will be interesting for you.

As I mentioned earlier, the plan comes with a buddy SIM that has 1 GB of data and 25mins of outgoing calls/SMS.

Here is the more interesting part. Grid Mobile offers you gridPoints where you can offset your bills, get merchants’ offer or get cashback. In my opinion, I think this is the first time I heard that you can get cashback from a Telco.

Here are how you can spend your gridPoints.

More information on the gridPoints.

Now, here is how you can get the gridPoints.

More information on the referral.

Now, at this moment, you might think that the plan is not enough for your monthly usage. You can check out these add-ons.

This is an one-time add-on package.

This is monthly add-on package. Notice something? They have the same pricing. Not sure why (because I thought monthly add-on should have more benefits). Anyway, looking at them, the differences is that one-time add-ons are for 15 days only while the monthly add-ons are for a month.

Unlike Circles.Life where I have been waiting for their improvement on the global data roaming plans (like forever), Grid Mobile has offered quite a package for data roaming.

In case you can’t read them.

Currently, they are having a contest with very attractive prizes. Just shoot a video and upload it to YouTube with #MINTMYMOBILE hashtag.

At this moment, another burning question is “Which Telco is Grid Mobile riding on?” In the Press Release, it mentions Grid Mobile is a joint venture between Singtel and ST Media. You might be thinking it is riding on Singtel.

I plugged in my review media Grid Mobile SIM card and immediately, it asked me which Singtel plan am I in – Pre-paid or Post-paid. I guess that answers the question.

Currently, on the display, it is showing GRID network with 4G LTE. Read on for more information. Or you can click this LINK to go to their website.

New telco Grid Mobile entices consumers with more than just additional data; pays customers to live larger.

 Consumers can use the accumulated gridPoints to offset their mobile plan bill, get cashback or snag merchant offers, freeing them up to live larger.

Singapore, 27 June 2019 – Just when consumers thought they have gotten the best of the telco world with generous data and no-contract mobile plans, Grid Mobile, the latest Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), is here to pay consumers tolive larger.

Grid Mobile is the brainchild of GRID Communications, a joint venture between Singtel and ST Telemedia, backed by two decades of experience as a leading public push-to-talk (PTT) communications provider in Singapore.

“Our core expertise in providing communications solutions to businesses has given us strong footing to now expand into providing that same level of service excellence and network reliability to everyday consumers,” says Bey Kok Meng, CEO of Grid Mobile.

Grid Mobile, targeting millennials, is here to slay with more than just additional mobile data and no-contract plans. Grid Mobile invites consumers to embrace an integrated rewards lifestyle that enables them to live more comfortably through a referral and loyalty rewards programme.

When consumers get their BFFs (best friends) on Grid Mobile, they accumulate gridPoints that can be used to offset their phone bills (yaaaasssss!), or for redemption with various merchants. If they get two friends every month to sign up with Grid Mobile, they will be able to get rebates as much as $16.50 from their third bill. Srsly.

“Millennials no longer want to be bound by mobile line contracts or worry about exceeding their mobile data limits. But even with the recent abundance in mobile plan options, we realised there is still one major missing piece–how to integrate mobile plans into a consumer’s actual lifestyle, and make it both useful and fun for the millennial consumer,” shares Mohamad Rizal, Senior Director, MVNO Lead, Grid Mobile.

Customers earn gridPoints on their birthday (200 points), when they remain on the plan (50 points every month), when they refer their friends (50 points every month) and when their friends sign up during the limited offer period (additional 200 points per month for first three months).

Customers can use the accumulated gridPoints to offset their mobile plan bill, get cashback or snag merchant offers, freeing them up to live life larger and do what they have always wanted to do with that additional financial relief.

UOB YOLO cardmembers can also enjoy an exclusive 8 per cent cashback when they pay their Grid Mobile phone bills with the UOB YOLO Card.

Grid Mobile customers enjoy generous data of 20 GB, 200 minutes outgoing calls, 200 SMS, free incoming calls and free Caller ID at $24.90 per month. On top of that, customers get 1 GB of data roaming in Malaysia and a buddy SIM card with additional 1 GB data, talk time and SMS — at no monthly cost. This free buddy SIM card is perfect for a second device, or for another family member.

The mobile plan is also easily customisable with add-ons of data, talk time, SMS or attractive data roaming packs. For added convenience, SIM cards will be delivered straight to customers’ doorsteps when they sign up for a new plan.

We believe that consumers deserve more alternatives and more value beyond just data and more data,” says Seet Ai-Li, Head of Marketing, Grid Mobile. “As an MVNO, we pride ourselves on providing our customers what they need at good value – value not limited to price and data but through our gridRewards, which is closely tied to how millennials live, work and play,” Seet added.

To engage consumers in a fun way, Grid Mobile is launching a campaign where consumers can show what they would do to live life larger by submitting a video on YouTube and tagging it with the hashtag #MINTMYMOBILE. The top prize for the winning video is a free mobile plan for life.

Grid Mobile is available for sign up at www.gridmobile.com.sg starting from 27 June 2019.
