I think the only reason they offered is because the freedom mobile plan got re-extended to Feb 28. So maybe everyone still has a chance to get the plan again.

yes but with extra $$$
What do you mean? Cuz $45 for a 4GB plan with Fido Roam eligibility at $5 per day is a great offer.

The only downside is that it's only valid for 2 years.

Is this the best available Fido Roam eligible offer? We'd want at least 4 GB but prefably ongoing. Right now my wife has the $50 5 GB plan without Fido Roam and I have the $54 (after discount) 6 GB plan without Fido Roam.

Hi, i currently have the grandfathered $35 plus10 +$30 6gb plan. i called in yesterday to negotiate a better plan before i even knew these forums existed) and got $5 off for 6 months. But after finding this whole new world of deals im really tempted to call back and try to get the $40/4gb expired plan because that would be perfect.

I would like like to know if a $15/3gb tablet counts as a second line? because then i could get the second line discount making it 36/4gb + 15/3g...so $51/7gb essentially. sounds like a longshot but is it possible?

Sounds like a plan. But i thought there's not way to get expired plan back? Unless you buy the plan from existing owner?

Having said that, is this plan a good deal?

$70/3GB plus 15 pulse with Fido roam.... don't mind paying the $100.

It's expired. You won't get it. And you just missed the $50 5 GB plan too. That's also now expired.

BTW, the cheapest BYOD loyalty plans generally are not eligible for the 10% second line discount, but it depends on the specific plan, and YMMV.

Was this for a new or existing Fido line?

Guys, that 58.50 for 8 gigs plan is a QUEBEC retention plan.
