[Bell] Alumni Plans - $50/15GB, $60/20GB

I had this promotion come up as an Instagram ad. Seems like by far the best deal out there right now. The rep I spoke to when I signed up today was able to waive the activation fee.

The website mentions that these plans are for AB and BC alumni and post-secondary staff.

$50/mo Plan
  • Unlimited Canada-wide calling
  • Unlimited texting
  • 15GB of data
  • No overage charges
$60/mo Plan
  • Unlimited Canada-wide calling
  • Unlimited texting
  • 20GB of data
  • No overage charges
I was told that I could activate up to 5 lines on these plans and wasn't asked for any proof of eligibilty (but YMMV).

Why the downvotes? Any insight?
Telus just raised my bill by $5 again to $75 for 15GB, consider leaving and this seems to be a good plan.

downvotes because Bell. Never, ever, EVER use Bell. Terrible corporation and terrible customer service. I gave Bell 2 chances and both times far and beyond the WORST provider. I gave up trying to get refunded after wasting at least 10 hours of my life.

Then there is the way Bell treats it's employees. #****

You should leave them.
I left Koodo for Telus when I found the Black Friday EPP $50/20 Gb plan.
You might get a retention deal.

Who was eligible for this EPP deal? Employees only?

Alumni, so my guess is that as long as you or your family member graduated from a post secondary school?

Thanks for the feedback. I'll use promotion to leverage with Telus then... If they don't budge, I'll find another chance to leave it.

Sorry, my comment is sidetracking the thread. I am referring to the Telus deal mentioned. Not sure if you are referring to the Bell deal.

I tried talking to Telus' loyalty department and they refused to budge from my old plan.

It's an alumni plan like bell. Contacted rogers and they provided me the details to sign up.

I can also get $4 per month for galaxy s21 for 2 year term financing but $56/15gb then. I think I will stick to byod

Really important point... Is the monthly plan price locked in for certain amount of time?
At $50, this sounds appealing as I'm on Fido 10gb for $55. I don't use that much data during Covid but the $5 a month drop would be the reason to switch.
It would suck to switch to this only to have them bump up the price to $55 or $60, six months from now.

I am really tempted to get the $50 plan. TELUS is throttling the Internet speed and it really is getting very annoying now.

Now matter how good a deal might seem, NEVER go with Bell.

Absolute garbage customer service. It’s fine when you don’t have any issues but as soon as you do, you’ll wish you had never given them a penny.

Three times I signed up with Bell over the years and never once did it go well.
