First, we had the big three: Singtel, Starhub, and M1. Then, MyRepublic came into the scene, followed by Zero, Zero1 and the well-loved Circles.Life. Today, it seems like another telco company has landed on our little Red Dot. The eighth, and latest, telco company that has just launched is Grid Mobile. Just when consumers thought it could not get better than generous data and no-contract mobile plans, Grid Mobile, with its gridPoints, is here to pay consumers to live larger.
Rewarding You For Being On The Grid
A joint venture between Singtel and ST Telemedia, Grid Mobile has put up a reward system, which allows consumers to accumulate gridPoints and enjoy the many benefits. For instance, the gridPoints accumulated can be used to offset phone bills, or for redemption with various merchants. One of the many different ways of accumulating points would be through referring others to sign up with Grid Mobile. For a limited period of time, get 250 points/month per referral for the first 3 months. Apart from the generous amount of data that millennials are so obsessed with, Grid Mobile’s reward system is put in place to integrate mobile plans into a consumer’s actual lifestyle, adding a speck of fun.
Starting at S$24.90 a month, the mobile plan that Grid Mobile customers enjoy includes generous data of 20GB, 200 minutes outgoing calls, 200 SMS, free incoming calls, and free Caller ID. Along with that comes a buddy SIM card that is loaded with an additional 1GB data, talk time and SMS at no monthly cost. This mobile plan also includes 1 GB of data roaming in Malaysia.
Saving More in the Long Run
In comparison to the well-loved Circles.Life, which has an $18 mobile plan, inclusive of 20GB of data, 100 minutes outgoing calls, 25 SMS, and free Caller ID, Grid Mobile may seem to be a better deal with more SMS and longer minutes. In addition, the Grid Mobile reward system allows customers to save more in the long run, since consumers will be able to exchange gridPoints for merchant offers. For added convenience, Grid Mobile even delivers the SIM cards straight to the customers when they sign up for a new plan!
