Would be cool to reward active forum users with the ability to redeem forum points towards tab discounts.

This would create too much spam on the forum. It think it has already been suggested, but hasn't been accepted as an idea...

The incentive is to become a Mobile Master, isn't it? :-) Once you become one there are quite a few benefits. See 5th paragraph:

   It's not that hard to become a Mobile Master, but does require diligence and persistence.

Like Kermit the Frog once said, things are not always easy: 

"It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold-
or something much more colorful like that."

I heard that Public Mobile's forum has community rewards for active contributors.

If all carriers did the same, there'd only be need for one. Differentiation provides choice to the consumer.

OK so which carrier can give me discounts on groceries and gas? I think the moment a carrier partners up with a major grocery store and gas bar, even if it's a 1% discount on every purchase, everyone will flock to that provider :D

CIBC used to offer a credit card that had TELUS rewards but it is no longer offered

Rogers and Fido have cash back credit cards. It's a good rate for free if you happen to be a customer.

@Goran you beat me to it. Fido's credit card seems tempting...

Hell! No!!!!

I am vehemently against that idea because we're already seeing a huge increase of meaningless posts that warp several genuine questions into ever increasing ripples of endless and meaningless discussion. It is the very reason I stopped participation in Public Mobile to tell the truth I just couldn't take the endless "improving" of posts. Please don't ever introduce that madness here... It's the worst system ever imo.

To improve on Sophia's comment, I would like to add that the ripples are not endless.  They end when posts are archived.  Which I feel this post will be soon. ;)
