Canadians travelling to the US can now purchase Roam Mobility surcharge-free SIM cards at nearly 500 7-Eleven locations across Canada.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - As of September 2nd, Canadians making last-minute plans for travelling to the US can pick up a surcharge-free SIM card at one of nearly 500 late-night or 24-hour 7-Eleven locations across the country.
"The new partnership with 7-Eleven helps us deliver greater flexibility and convenience to existing and new customers," says Emir Aboulhosn, founder and SVP Business Development of Roam Mobility. "Even if you're heading out early in the morning or late at night, you can pick up your SIM on the way and avoid paying roaming fees in the US."
Roam Mobility SIM cards give customers access to unlimited talk and text, plus data for as little as $3 per day. Priced at $19.95, the cards are available in standard, micro and nano versions, and can be used with any unlocked GSM phone.
"We're always looking for new ways to deliver convenience and value to our customers," says Stephen Todd, Product Manager of 7-Eleven Canada. "Now they can drop into their neighbourhood 7-Eleven for all their cross-border travel needs: snacks, supplies, and an affordable roaming plan."
Roam Mobility SIM cards can be purchased at 7-Eleven locations in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan.
In addition to the retail partnership with 7-Eleven, Roam Mobility also sells products at locations Canada-wide such as airports, duty-free stores, electronics and travel retailers.
Aboulhosn says the arrangement with 7-Eleven has added 500 new locations for its retail presence in Canada, and is helping them reach consumers in previously underserved areas of the country, including Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
"Our distribution network is growing rapidly," says Aboulhosn. "The latest retail relationship with 7-Eleven makes it even easier for Canadians to grab one of our SIM cards any time to avoid costly roaming fees during US trips."
