Screen shot my contract....
If I'm reading this correctly it looks like you get a $35 credit for activation and you get a $15/month credit for the service

Sorry, I don't have any more screenshots, but when I contacted them via chat I asked straightforward if I can get a tablet plan for free and that's what I was offered.
Agent asked if I have access to my fido app and to check extra section and locate discount on electronics, which I did and she said I am qualified for the deal as seen on my screenshot.

It’s possible, maybe this is another way to lock you in with phone plan together for 24 months?

Which electronics deal? And this was an existing account right?

Hold up. I straight up asked if I'm eligible and sent them the add-on code, seeing what chat has to say.

Chat said it's not something they can do online, it's a promotion in store.

Got off the phone with a Fido store just now, and the rep told me that this is for targeted customers, and that you would receive a text message with the offer, provided you’re eligible.

I followed up with a call to a store, and they said it's targeted, you have to receive the notification and be eligible for it. They can look it up in your account, but can't add that add-on manually.

I got a similar deal. Free Huawei MediaPad T5 10 for free for signing on for 2 years. $15 a month. Then Rogers offered me $20 a month for unlimited calling and texting if I moved my phone service from Fido to Rogers. So now have $35 a month for unlimited calling and text + 4gigs data + tablet. Same as $20 without tablet. They have several other tablet deals at Fido as well.

I have this deal - but the contract is over and I am month to month. Another attraction on my contract was that over data was 10$ per gig. I use the tablet strictly for a hotspot for my laptop when I am at the cottage. Is there a cheaper way to get data? Are the unlimited data phone plans better?

Crying Face, when I go to my XTRAS offers the only electronics "deal" they've sent me is 65% off some crap from TSC.

Thanks anyway op.

Thank you all for the good tips.

I am 6 months into my 2 year phone contract with Fido (contract ends Feb./2021). Let's say I sign up for this tablet deal for 2 years (contract ends Aug./2021).

In Feb./2021, is it okay for me to move onto other carrier with my phone contract, and remain on Fido's tablet contract until Aug./2021 as a standalone contract?

Thanks!

Nope, you kill one they will kill both. That said, you might have some luck with client retention if you call in and ask about cancelling (to lower your mobile rate).
