So, on 24th Oct skinny messaged me they are giving an extra 2.5GB data each time I rollover until 31 Jan 18. 


In their sms, the did the sum as follows...


"That's a huge 6GB Rollover data....."




Then, a short time ago, skinny lifted their base data allowance on the ultra plan from 3.5gb to 10gb data. 


So, does the 2.5GB data bonus still apply? Because increasing to 10gb made the 6GB data in the earlier text irrelevant now. 




Reason I ask, is that i just got another sms about the bonus 2.5gb data today. 




Not that I will use this data anyway, it has been a breakout year for mobile data deals.

Yes the 2.5 still applies although it does seem a bit irrelevant because of the upgrade its still a free 2.5GB


The 2.5 was a Christmas campaign Skinny put out but shortly after that was introduced 2Degrees increased there plans to 10GB and skinny followed suit the next day, making the campaign a little bit lackluster and with the inability to change that value it has now stuck till its end date
