[Best Buy] Virgin 6GB for $60 and Fido 7GB for $70 - No Contract!

I Just came back from Best Buy downtown Toronto at Bay and Dundas, that are fully advertising a Chinese New Year Special of 6GB Data for $60 on Virgin Mobile and 7GB for $70 for Fido.

The plan includes Unlimited Talking and Texting for both companies and is considered the Bring Your Own Device Plan (had my Oneplus 5t), but you can also get a phone with it to if you go on their Small/Medium/Large Tabs.

I know it's not the same as 10gb but that's likely never coming back again.
I got it with Fido and was also able to get 1000 Long Distance minutes for free to certain countries like India and China.

The $45 for 2GB option was there for fido, Virgin and koodo. But I know there are others like me who use a lot of data and missed out on the 10gb deal in December.

What swung me for fido was the long distance mins, 10% off additional lines, Spotify premium for 6 months, and 5 hours of unlimited data in a month.

Now my one plus 5t wont have to suffer the freedom network. Yuck.

Oh sorry, this is in Toronto, Ontario. We aren't blessed with great plans like in Quebec or Saskatchewan.
Typically 6gb goes for $85+ for companies with good lte networks.
There's a popular scam in Ontario to get Quebec plans but once in a blue moon we get legit decent plans and we have to get them while they're hot.

I can tell you, it will end soon. Videotron used to have lower prices than the others which forced everyone else to be reasonable but since the new year, videotron is the worst of them all. Say you sign for a S8, you have to pay 200$ upfront (normal so far) on a 6gb 107$/month plan!

I assume other companies will wake up at some point and raise their prices.

Headed to that area tomorrow, any details you can recall about phones offered with the plans? Is it just the regular price or do they have any discounts off of phones?

The Samsung galaxy a5 was $0 with a $250 gift card on Fido on medium tab, and the galaxy s7 was $99. For that price difference, I would've gone for the a5 if I didn't have my oneplus 5t already.

It was a once in a lifetime promo last december, but likely wont be back again. Thats why Im highlighting this one. 6GB for $60 is an awesome deal unless you're scamming the quebec plans or one a grandfathered plan from 5+ years ago.

if you use social media a lot, you'll need it. heck, I upgraded to 14GB as 10GB fell like a daily constraint. it is after all only 300mb or so per day
