[Fido] 5GB Data Bonus for 24 Months (YMMV)

Just logged into my Fido account and under both of my lines I have this offer:
YOUR EXCLUSIVE BONUS DATA OFFER
5GB For 24 months

We think you deserve more data so we're giving you more for FREE! Yeah, you read that right. We'll add a 5GB data bonus for 24 months on your current plan today - no added cost, no new contract, no kidding!.
I'm on the $60/15GB BYOD plan, as always ymmv for account specific offers. It wasn't there when I logged in a day or two ago.

I didn't receive a text for this so good idea to check.

Just learned I got this back in October for whatever reason.

Maybe too many people, including myself, complained about increasing the $60/10 GB plan to $65 :)

It's very rare to hit 15GB anyways, especially nowadays.

No dice on my end. I am on the $40 5GB plan though, so that's probably why. I've never gotten any special offers with this current plan lol.

Question.... i now see the bonus under "Usage & Services".
I had a $50 4GB plan already with a 2GB add-on... they kept the previous 2GB addon for a total of 4 + 2 + 5 = 11GB :)

Does it list anywhere when the data add-ons will expire?
There is "View Details" link beside the "Total data" amount..... gives the data breakdown, but not when the bonuses will expire.

I'm sure I'm gonna be caught off guard when the bonus expire down the road :(

I am also under contract untill March 2022, originally I was at $60 4GB. Later I saw promotion on their webpage after logging in, it was 8GB for $60 so switched, few days ago it was showing $50 8GB again switched. I was promised $100 bill credit on my 3rd bill and they initially told me that they will not honor their promise as I switched plans. I stood my ground and told them that their website allowed me and it’s not my fault. They finally gave me $100 bill credit and I kept my 8GB for $50 plan. Now a bonus on top.

Keep checking promotion tab after you log into fido.ca, they have offers very often.

I'm on $35 1GB + 5GB bonus. I see a $35 2GB plan. Not sure what the catch is and if I might lose the 5GB bonus if I switch.

Will call to see tomorrow.

My "special exclusive offer" is $60 for 8GB. I'm ok with my current $50 for 4GB. It's enough for my needs.

The 5gb bonus is associated with your old grandfathered 1gb Pulse plan. Bonuses are associated to plans, not accounts. You will lose it if you switch. Just calling to ask about the 2gb plan offer will often make a bumbling rep replace it on your account prematurely and then find it's impossible to reverse. Don't take the chance! When does your 5gb expire?

Got it! 20GB for $60 now. Seems almost impossible to use it up especially when its WFH, but can't hurt. Thanks OP
