[Fido] For those with 10GB plan, Fido is offering 3GB for free (Plus competitive plans information)

Image

Basically I online chat with Fido upset about the change in price for the 10GB plan from $60+taxes to $65+taxes, not to mention they should of sent a separate notice instead of attaching it to the bill

The online customer represent offered me 3GB, no fees, for 12 months, since they could not do anything else, I took it, now my plan totals for 10GB+3GB+5 hours of unlimited Data

I called the next day to talk to a manager, the first thing I did was ask to speak to a manger because the first representative tried to offer me the 3GB again without knowing I already added it, so it seems like anyone can add it for you

I got transfer to a manager whom offer the same 3GB but seen I already added, then brought up competitive plans

Bring your own device $60 for 5GB+3GB (Not sure about the 5 hours)
Medium plan (Regularly $90) $65 for 5GB+3GB+5 hours of unlimited Data
Large plan (Regularly $130) $75 for 5GB+3GB+5 hours of unlimited data

I only looked at medium phones, but you can get a LG G7 One for $0, two years agreement

P.S. Do you guys think I can sell my current plan to someone, never done it before

Just to throw it out there, they only gave me an extra 2gb of data per month after I called in to complain early March about the $5 monthly increase, but they applied it for a full two years.

They couldn't trigger any winback offers for me, as an existing customer.
I hate that the offers are all over the place!!!

Deal is still worth it for me, for now...

Chicken and eggs kind of thing... I didn't use data because I didn't have it, then I didn't use more than 3GB per month because that was my quota, then that became 6GB, then that became 10GB... I'm sure if I have that quota, I'd find a way to use it. The harder thing is to scale back once the bonus goes away after a year, so I don't get hit with overage.

Does anyone have any good Large or XL plans with 8+ GB? There aren't any phones worth upgrading to from my Note 8 on my $67 10GB medium plan.

Feels like a band aid solution from them to justify the $5 increase. Meh, either way, drove me out.
