From data points seems like it takes approximately a week to receive another update from Fido@prepaiddigitalsolutions.com but I haven't received any follow ups since Dec 28.
I registered on Dec 28th and haven't received any follow-up emails yet.

I signed up with Fido on December 10 and two days ago (January 8, i.e. ~4 weeks after the sign-up) I got the registration email for the credit card. The registration has a note that the card will arrive within 2 weeks.

@split_cross and @KillmeSlowly - if the Fido’s estimate is correct, I’m hoping that you’ll get your cards in the next couple of days!

Registered for the gift card on Dec. 28.
Received it a few minutes ago, chose the digital option, and immediately brought a $150 gift card elsewhere. Funds are safe!

Got the gift card email just now. I opted for a virtual card which was instantly delivered. I loaded the $150 balance to Amazon to avoid any fraudulent transactions as reported by others. My timeline is as follows:
Signed up: 23 Nov
Email from Fido Solutions <fido@e.helloworldemail.com> to register: 28th Dec
Got the Gift Card email from Fido@prepaiddigitalsolutions.com and the virtual gift card: 11 Jan

My experience was with Rogers (never liked them but best price for internet in my area). Signed up Sep 20 for student 1/2 price plan (not a student) for $50 a month. Was told $33.90 install fee could not be waived even though they mailed it to me and I installed. Heard from my brother that he got the $150 GC Amazon/Walmart offer a week after I signed up. I called Rogers CS and explained and he offers me the $150 gift card. Oct/Nov no gift card. Called Rogers CS and they opened a case plus explained install fee, she gave me the $33.90 credit back. Mid Nov I received a $100 Amazon GC in junk mail (thought it was a scam email at first). Accepted them $100 and then called Rogers CS asking why $100 Amazon not $150 with a choice. They said nothing could be done once the GC was issued by 3rd party. So got issued a $50 bill credit. Just before X-mas got a Rogers email saying do not worry your GC was on the way. I disregard b/c I already got my $150. Received a email yesterday from Rogers saying I would receive my GC by 18 Jan 21 so I decided to check my junk mail. I all most fell off my chair, another $150 Amazon GC. First time in my life I will say Thank you Rogers for the $333.90 before I switch to Fido (I did not switch over X-mad b/c I was unsure of terms and conditions) Good luck guys I hope you all get your GC even if it takes a little work.

Got my virtual card and loaded my Amazon gift card right away. I had ordered the internet in October 2020. I didn't get the email automatically and had to chat two weeks ago to escalate it.

I replenished my Amazon gift card with the $150 virtual gift card. I was skeptical but it went through within an hour. I already used half of it lol.

You can't use it to pay your Fido bill, if this is what you are looking to do - it was somewhere in the Terms and Conditions.

To add it to your Amazon account: go to your Amazon account and add the Fido MasterCard as a payment method. Then go to your balance, select "Reload balance" and add the money using the Fido MasterCard you just added.

I just added mine (got the email today) and it showed up on my Amazon account in ~5 min.

Is the GC offer automatic all new activations? Finished Live Chat with the rep and I'm signed up ($37.50 , 150), but I didn't realize there was a GC promo until after the fact.

No mention of GC with the rep on Live Chat.

I'll try at some point to speak to a rep and ask about the GC.

I don't know whether the promotion is still on. But even when it was on it was hit-and-miss, depending on the CSR.
You could try the chat again and ask for it. If you go back in the thread, you'll that see some people had success when they asked for the card after their first call.

Hope this helps.

Hey for those that suggested complaining to the CCTS - thanks! I got a month of free service b/c of the delays. My timeline was as follows (I am on the 42.50/mo plan):

October 16: Service began
November 10th: Contacted Fido CS regarding gift card (nothing came out of it)
December 12: Contacted Fido CS regarding gift card (nothing came out of it)
December 14: Fido mass email update that they are experiencing processing delays on the gift card
December 28ish: Contacted Fido CS regarding gift card (nothing came out of it)
December 31: Filed a complaint with the CCTS
January 6: Finally got my gift card
January 22: Got a call from a Case Manager at Fido/Roger's Office of the President, I told them I got my gift card and the CM gave me a month of service for free "in recognition of the delay of the gift card"

Hope this helps anyone still waiting
