[Fido] Extra 1gb data from Fido could be targeted

Hi, it's Fido: treat yourself-on us! For a limited time, get an extra 1GB of data per month at no extra cost, just like that! Reply YES by 20-Aug-17 to activate your gift for you. Enjoy it as long as you have your current plan or until your next phone upgrade for up to 6 months (non-transferable). Questions? http://fido.ca/contactus .

Just got this too. The wording is a little weird though, is it only for 6 months or is it for as long as I don't change my plan?

How I despise this targeted bs. Even if I was targeted myself I'd still hate it.

I might be lucky but I called in to complain about not being able to view my bill online and the rep gave me (and my wife) an extra 2gb. We have 5gb plans already for 65 a month (plus 15 all taxes in) being SK residents so feeling pretty lucky.
