Just got my confirmation email and text regarding Spotify. Changed the plan yesterday so it does seem like it takes about 24 hours for the notifications.

Tried online chat and was offered $45 2gb plan but she mentioned that 2nd line 10% discount can not be applied.
Anyone here with the second line discount to this plan ?
If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was, and always will be yours. If it never returns, it was never yours to begin with :|

I changed my plan to the $50 for 3gb today via Fido live chat. As OP had suggested, you will have to mention the "Wind competitive price match." I initially started out with retention plan availability, but was immediately denied any benefits.

Once I mentioned Wind, BAM! Give me the options. There is no contract to this change. Also, please use your Fido dollars before June as Fido will be phasing them out.

Thanks OP!

What can we do with these fido dollars? They offered me a Blackberry Classic but I wonder if that meant I'd be put on contract and no longer able to use BYOP deals.

Use it to buy phone at full price, make sure you pay the phone at off contract price.

Chatting with Fido now, and she's "100% sure" they don't have these plans.

"This was a plan we had before but was removed and someone leaked it again on redflag saying Fido is now offering this and it is the wrong information. " Basically, saying OP is lying. > :(
I guess the rep is the liar now. :)
Pro tip - If you can't stop thinking about it ....BUY IT !

So I asked chat why i didn't get an email apparently it wasn't properly applied by the last agent and this guy said to wait 24hours for an email. My plan will still begin at the end of the current billing cycle.

Rogers is affiliated with Fido. In the past they would allow you to move from one to the other without any penalties. I think it might be the same would be allowed. However, not sure if they would give you the same plan. I would go into a store and talk with a representative and find out! But it a loyalty plan so you might have to call Fido customer care. Might have to call multiple times.

No need to be a past customer? Which chatr plan did you get if you don't mind me asking
