petro-mobilelatestEven though Canadian gas prices have dropped almost by 40% in the last 3 months, it’s nice to see that  Petro-Canada is looking for more ways to make additional money rather than gum, chocolate bars etc…

Petro-Canada Mobility is a MNVO (mobile virtual network operator) that has been around since 2006 and operates on the Rogers Network. With all this said they have revamped their website and brought it up to the 21st century. It’s a cleaner and fresher look, nothing else is really new as they have the same Nokia devices available (Nokia 3555, Nokia 2760, Nokia 2630 and Nokia 1208), but they do have a promo going on that can save you $25 when you purchase the Nokia 2760 with $50 or $100 worth of airtime.

This is worth looking into if you’re into pre-paid phones.

    You didn't mention that they have also revamped their prices!

    Whereas before you could buy $20 of air time and it would last 6 months, now $15 only lasts 30 days. Plus their per minute rate has risen from $0.20 to $0.25.

    I bought a petro canada phone 6 months ago because of seeing an ad which advertised their low rates and long expiry times. Now they have hiked their prices and I feel cheated, but of course in their t&c they can change prices whenever they want. They are just as pad as the rest of the cell phone companies.
