Buying pixel xl from Best Buy Fido

Hey guys,

So Best Buy Fido has the pixel xl 32gb for $349.99 on contract. They have a trade in promotion for $150 and a free VR ($100 value).

I have a Best Buy $50 GC to put towards it too. So here's how the pricing will work.

$350 - $150 trade in - $50 GC = $170 taxes in upfront.

Device price on no term is $1079 so if you minus $350 from it, you will have $729 on tab.

$729 + taxes is $823 and if I add the $170 I paid upfront it'll be $993 total for the phone. Did I do the math right? I know this price is not as good as the Koodo deal but they are out of stock at the moment. Just want to get your opinion on it cuz I'm looking to switch to this phone from the iPhone 6s Plus.

Also, they say you can not cancel before 90 days. Is that true?

But don't you need to tie to a 2 yr +35 plan? So minimum you need to get the 2gb fido pulse which is $55+35 = 90 x 24month = $2,160 + initial cell cost 170 = $2,330

With byod, $1,079 + $55 x 24 = $2,399, $69 diff.

If you don't need spotify pulse plan, $1,079 + 50 x 24 = $2,279.

Best Buy rep says you need to stay with Fido for 90 days before you can cancel but I just went on live chat and the Fido rep says there's no need, you just have to pay off your tab, which means you can cancel anytime. I am not sure how true that is though since Fido monkeys are all over the place.

Can't you save the chat and use it as proof?

If you cancel within 90 days, they can make you pay back the cost of the VR and the gift card.
