Just called fido said I was looking for a better rate or to cancel since Fizz mobile was offering the same plan (8gb, unlm text + calls canada) for $40 vs what I was paying now at fido $49. Off the bat was offered 10% discount from the CSR then transferred to retention agent who offered a 25% monthly discount on a 10gb unlm text call plan for $36/month! Very satisfied. Background: I've been off contract for over 3 years.

Where did you find that deal from Telus? I'm with Fido and would love to stay, but they're not giving me any loyalty deals on the cost of an iPhone X or XR.

Sorry I should have been clear. That's an employee price plan offered through Telus.

It’s a win back offer I believe

Seems like she made me the offer the moment I told her I was on a $80 plan with Freedom

Just called in, received an offer. 66.75$/month for 24 months (8GB data, unlimited calling/texting) discounted 25% from the normal 89$/month and an iPhone Xs 64GB for 225$.

Been a customer with Fido/Rogers since 2010, should I accept the offer or look for something else? My current contract is over at the end of May and I've got 90$ left on my device balance.

Could always port out and see what winback offers. Likely get the same or similar offer with $300-$500 extra credits added on.

My 2 yr contract will be matured tomorrow and I was with Fido for 15 yrs.

I want to keep my existing grandfather plan $25 voice (150 Canada-Wide Weekday Minutes, Unlimited Canada-Wide Evening and Weekend Minutes) + $30 6gb data plan.

Call Fido and the rep told me this plan only counts as small plan. Only offer $75 additional discount off the device off the small tab device price. Do anyone able to negotiate more discount off the device? I want to stick with Android (prefer either Samsung or Google)

He is trying to persuade me to take the loyalty plan of $75 for unlimited voice and 10gb, and that count as medium tab plan.

I went to Walmart and got a Galaxy S9, $0 on medium plan + $150 Walmart gift card (Ontario). The plan is a $65, 4gb, 500min, unlimited evening weekends, unlimited texting, plan currently on their site. Called them the next day to get a better deal, they didn't budge. Called again yesterday and the CSR offered a 25% discount on the plan for 12 months. I am not a good bargainer, otherwise, could've pushed them to apply the discount for 24 months. They won't agree as I have a new device. Considering the gift card and everything, the price averages down to $50.63+tax per month. It's not bad since the Galaxy S9 is included for free. Have to go on 24 months contract through. I believe the deal is still on in Walmart.
