[Fido] $45 & $50 BYOD Loyalty Pulse 2GB/3GB (updated YMMV + 2GB free)

**Update 10** Fido has been sending text messages to targeted customers offering free data promotion. If you are one of the lucky ones you simply have to text "Yes" back to get the free promotion. If you did not get a text message you could try calling in and mention the promotion everyone is getting.
**Update 9** It appears that FIDO is currently doing a promotion to offer free +2gb for 12 months. I have called them about 7 times to get the deal and was rejected. They claimed that because it's a loyalty plan they are unable to apply the promotion. This is FALSE!. I was finally able to get it today on my Loyalty 50 plan. I simiply called in and asked for the bonus. The rep was able to offer it to me. I think YMMV based on your rep. Don't give up !! Keep trying.
**Update 8** The plan is still live as of Aug 6th 2016. To get the plan you will still need to mention the wind competitive plan. One key difference now is that this plan does not come with Spotify anymore.
**Update 7** Confirmed provinces that are offering the plan. BC, AB, ON
**Update 6** If you are able to get the plan please post what province you are from. That way I can consolidate some data for everyone else. Thanks.
**Update 5** It appears most people are able to get the deal now. (see page 10). Mentioning the Wind competitive price match seems to be the key for success.
**Update 4** It has been confirmed that the additional line 10% discount does not apply to BYOB Loyalty plans.
**Update 3** This seems like its working for many members. Success rate is much higher mentioning wind.

People please ask for the "Wind Competitive Price Match" when talking to the agent. They are NOT allowed to mention this plan unless you mention it FIRST! It is their policy.
**Update 2** some members from BC, Alberta and Ontario confirmed they were able to get the deal.
**Update 1** Looks like it's a hit or miss right now depending on your rep.

Fido Customer Loyalty Plan is Back!!! Hot Hot Hot

This is not posted on the FIDO website.
Just like last time this is for existing customers only that has been with FIDO for over 90 days. you have to bring your own phone and can not be in a contract.
This is a nation wide deal according to the Customer Rep.

You best chance of getting the deal is to do start a FIDO live chat (online). Here is a link for your convenience.
https://livesupport.fido.ca/SupportBrid ... s=808&sub=

Once connected ask the rep for the $45/$50 BYOP Loyalty Pulse plans.
I simply just asked for it. I did not threaten to leave or any other tricks.
If you are eligible it will be a simple process to switch to this new plan.

Just to clear something up for the BlackFriday Plan.
- The BlackFriday Plans were different based on the province you are in. QC had the best deal of $34 (as usual). In Ont and Alberta the same deal was for $49. SK was somewhere in between the QC and Ont deal. Not too sure about the other provinces.
- The claims that the $45 & $50 BYOD deal is the same as the BF deal. This was not a BF deal, it is the same retention plan as this post. All of this information was mashed together in the previous thread which got many people confused. The retention plan was discontinued for a few months. They just re-introduced it recently.

This is a direct copy and paste from customer rep
Here’s what you need to know about this plan change:

- It’ll be effective as of March 28th (start of your next cycle) and your Spotify and Daily Vice 2 years free period starts on the same date (go to FidoHub.ca from your phone with WiFi off to activate Spotify and Daily Vice).
- Your current plan is no longer offered, so you won’t be able to go back to it in the future.
- You’ll no longer accumulate FidoDOLLARS™ on this line but will keep the current FidoDOLLARS™ balance.
- Your total monthly charges are now $45 + tax.
- Your new U.S. long distance rate is of $0.55/min.
- Usage for your current plan is billed per second, but usage for your new plan will be per minute.
- Your data over usage rate will be of $5/250 MB.
- You’ll receive an email confirmation with all the important info about your new plan.
- Your 10% 2nd line promotion is not compatible with this plan, since it's already being offered at a reduced price.

This is a direct copy and paste from customer rep.
The $45 BYOP Pulse plan includes:
- Unlimited Canada-wide anytime calls
- 2 GB (over usage: $5/250 MB)
- Unlimited text/picture/video msgs from Canada to Canadian, U.S. and international cells
- Call Display (Number only)
- Mini Voicemail (max 3 msgs)
- Circle Calling™
- Free Daily Vice & Spotify for 2 years

$50 BYOP Pulse plan, includes:
- Unlimited Canada-wide anytime calls
- 3 GB (over usage: $5/250 MB)
- Unlimited text/picture/video msgs from Canada to Canadian, U.S. and international cells
- Call Display (Number only)
- Mini Voicemail (max 3 msgs)
- Circle Calling™
- Free Daily Vice & Spotify for 2 years

Thank you Meeiu for the screenshot:

Additionally this promotions is going on as well.

If you add an additional line to your account you could get:
- 10% off the cost of the new plan
- A $50 credit once the new line is active for 90 days ($25 on your current line + $25 on the new one, both applied after 90 days of continuous service)

With agreement:
- Activation bonus of up to $100 on your 1st or 2nd bill (amount depends on plan chosen)
- A $50 credit on your bill (only with select phones, will appear by the 3rd invoice)
For all the people whom for the 2015 Black Friday deal this is the perfect chance for you to upgrade.
I switched over to FIDO on Blackfriday. As of today 93 days has lapsed. You should be eligible for this plan as well.

I believe this is the same deal as the one from Black Friday. I'm on the 2GB $45 dollar plan.

EDIT: not the same. This is better than BF deal which was 2gb @ $49.

Does this usually work? Do you have to threaten to cancel?

You're right, I just checked. This is a better deal. I'm just tired of dealing with Fido every month on a better plan. They always screw it up and I have to call back a million times to get it fixed. I wonder if it's better to save 4 bucks or pay $1 more for a GB more.

I'm in the same boat. I am hoping to get the $50 plan for my gf. Any chance they will allow this for new customers? What if I add her to my account?

These are BYOP plans, black friday deal was 49$ including a 15$ tab... so 34$ BYOP price for 2GB. Still, without a time machine, this is a pretty good deal.

Edit: I stand corrected, I believe this deal was in QC only, my bad.

I was given 49 without any tab with BYOP on BF. I don't know about the $15 tab or being able to get the same deal for $34. Maybe it was so, but I don't remember such a deal ($34 for 2GB BYOP).

Agree, it was not $34, no idea where the $15 tab is supposedly from

On black friday I got a byop 2+1gb for 44$. This is not a better deal. I'm in QC if that matters.

Also got 5$ off for 6 month.

Why is it I recall seeing 34$ for 2Gb with Fido not so long ago. Only a QC plan?

* just checked, that's what I'm paying for one of my lines. I recall there being a price war with Koodo at the time. May have been Quebec only.

Not sure if I got lucky on BF, but I switched two of my lines to these plans.

I pay $45/2gb & $50/3gb.

This is the same BF deal.
