[Fido] 150u Home Internet for $45/month + 9GB Cell Phone Plan for $40/month YMMV

Hello, first time posting so please be gracious!

Called into Fido for their $75 150u plan with $150 Amazon gift card yesterday. The friendly rep quickly offered me the plan for $45 ($30 off for 12 months) with the $150 gift card. She said that this is a new promo that they started offering everyone yesterday.

She asked about my cell phone plan (I was planning on moving from Rogers to Koodo) and she offered me the $50/9GB plan for $40 ($10 discount for 12 months) as a bundle with the internet package. I took that too.

Didn't see this anywhere online so YMMV, but the rep made it seem like it wasn't a "special" bonus just for me.

Notes:
  • I'm considered as a new customer, never had Fido services before. Might not be available to current customers (didn't ask)
  • Plans are the in market $75/150u & $50/9GB BYOD plan
  • I called in and got the rep almost immediately, didn't try Chat.

Thanks OP. Went to the store and they have it as well.

Internet 75 = $25 off for 6 months + $100 GC (walmart or Amazon)
Internet 150 = $30 off for 12 months + $150 GC (walmart or Amazon)

You must register for the gift card offer within 45 days.

Eligible = New students with a valid student ID OR Activating Internet 150 for the first time.
Not elgiible = Non students or customer with existing Fido Home Internet.

If you have Fido and never had internet 150, you should be able to get the $30 off discount + GC.
------------------
GIFT CARD...
Thanks to @[spooftime] the reply from the Fido rep : "Up to 6 weeks after your installation, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to register for your gift card."

-------------------
The gift card is supposed to be emailed in 6 weeks (I've heard 4 weeks thrown around), according to the Fido rep. Once the offer email is received, you have 45 days to register it, so digital gift card. Keep checking your email/junk mail folders so you don't miss it.

"Offer available for a limited time or while supplies last within the Fido cable service area in Ontario (where technology permits). Offer consists of (1) CAD $100 Amazon.ca Gift Card for new customers activating Fido Home Internet 75u, OR (1) CAD $150 Amazon.ca Gift Card for new customers activating Fido Internet 150u. Offer subject to change without notice. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Fido employees are not eligible, including but not limited to full-time, part-time, dealer employees and contractors. Eligible customers have 45 days from the date the invitation email is received to register and activate their services to redeem the offer. If an eligible customer cancels their internet service within 30 days of activating it, they will no longer be eligible to receive the Amazon.ca Gift Card. Not redeemable for cash. Limit one per household. The Amazon.ca Gift Card that may be provided to you is a rebate granted and provided by Rogers Communication Canada Inc. under a Fido promotion. A portion of the rebate is an amount on account of GST/HST/QST where applicable. Amazon.ca Gift Cards ("GCs") are redeemable only for eligible ..."

Seems like a great deal. Was the $30 discount per month only available if you bundled your services with a cell plan, or offered on a standalone basis?

Thanks.

The $30 was a standalone discount, $10 was from the bundle

Good deal with the $30 discount and the $150GC. Might have to shop around in 12 months after discount ends though.

Best internet promos come during back to school and Boxing Day. Remember to sign up and then cancel after 12 months.
You can renew almost every year. If they give you trouble, just go in store as they only care about the commission :)

How much is the installation fee? Is it for Fido mobile customers only? Do they also take $30 off per month for 12 months on 75 Mbps service?

For self-install there's no install fee. Don't know about discounts on other plans

Do you have to pay a modem rental fee?
I’m with carrytel for $45/month but not sure if this is worth switching if the price will balloon in a year

No...there is a fee but it's already billed into the price. And,as others have stated, speed is closer to 300 down.
