Unlimited Canada Wide minutes anytime
Unlimited Canada and US texting
1 GB data
Date overages ($5/250MB)
Free Spotfy Premium for 2 years
My contract ends next month and so, I am looking to renew and upgrade my phone.
Ideally, I would like to get a Samsung Galaxy S6 (which is currently available for free with Plus15 plans). I would also like to increase my data amount.
However, the prices I am being given when I log in to my Fido account and select "Upgrade my phone" are a bit high. I am being offered $70 for an Unlimited Canada-Wide Calling Pulse plan with 1 GB of data, $80 for 4 GB of data, $90 for 5GB, or $120 for 7GB. Any suggestions on what is possible to negotiate a lower price for an Unlimited Canada-Wide Calling Pulse plan with those GB amounts? Is there a specific loyalty/retention department that I need to ask for when I call in and any particular strategy to make sure I do get transferred to the right department.
Also, a few other things. I notice that on all the new plans, the Spotify Premium is now only for 6 months. When did this change from 2 years? Anybody have any success negotiating a 2 year subscription with the new plans?
Is it still possible to get the overage rate of $5/250MB that I have with my existing plan instead of the $5/100MB overage rate that is being offered on the new plans. Finally, do they ever waive the $15 upgrade fee. I mean, if I was a brand new Fido customer signing up for a plan, they would not charge me this fee so, it seems unfair that existing customers are dinged for this.
