Guys, that 58.50 for 8 gigs plan is a QUEBEC retention plan.
Ah that makes sense then.

Hi, just got off chat with a rep...I have a redmi note 2 phone unlocked and no contract with 2gb and paying 40$...I saw the koodo promo 6gb for 49$ so I decided to try and see if they would match...The rep gave me 4gb + 2gb extra for 12 months at 49.50$.I said that I was a long time customer and I would call koodo, he said that he can't give a permanent 6gb so he gave me the extra 2gb for 24 months instead...Since I don't have any contract I can always switch to a better deal if one comes along

Fido really tries hard to not honour what they offer. I did an upgrade on a retention plan, using my Fido Dollars, with a new G5, that included a $100 gift card to be mailed 30 days after the upgrade.

First bill arrives, no Fido Dollars applied. Had to contact Fido to have them applied.

50 days since the upgrade, and no $100 cash card. Contact Fido again, and I'm told they need 2 days to 'look into it'. Waiting to see if they try and screw me out of the $100.

So I just made some rounds today. I'm in BC and currently have the $39 600mb/450 min Smart plan. Resigning for 2yrs, keeping exactly the same plan, Burnaby Costco offered me the Samsung S5 neo for $120 less $100gc or the G4 for $99 less $50gc. Grandview WalMart offered me G4 for $99 with $100gc. Grandview Superstore offerred me Moto G plus for $0 or G4 for $99 less $50 with any phone trade in..
I will try to check out BB, wireless Wave and wow mobile tomorrow. At the moment, looks like WM has the best phone deal?

^^ what's the update?
If you're wondering about BC, on Mar7, bestbuy offerred me a Huawei GR5 for $0 with a $125gc, the LG G4 was $49, no further gc. I believe the moto g4 plus was $0, no gc.

For reference/comparison only, Superstore mobileshop had a Sat,mar11 one day deal for a LG G4 for $99 with $100gc and extra $50gc for phone trade in.

All my deals are for a plus10 (former $39 smart) plan renewal.

This is actually getting worse. I renewed the same plan in mid Feb thru Wow Mobile, got the LG G4 for $0 and $50 GC. BBY also has the G4 for $0 without GC in the same week.
If you are set on renewing the same plan, checkout walmart as well. The G4 has $150 GC but I can't remember if it is $0.

So I'm on the $15/ 3 GB plan with the LG GPAD 3. I tried talking to someone on live chat regarding a buy out and seeing if they had any promotion similar to the one that many people on here have reportedly gotten(the 50% off plan). I was told that I do not qualify for this since I'm on the tablet plan. Is this true or is this rep just bsing
