I will be there tomorrow at UofT, but I think I prefer paying the extra $150 for Koodo service. If they have free tablet and cheap data add on like previous years I would jump, but at $150 delta I prefer paying Koodo that extra.

Overall, Zoomers wireless ongoing promo still better since the price is inferior , there is also an activation credit and for less on a monthly basis there's a phone included on a 2 y contract.

Question: Why this post is categorized as "Groceries"?
Because you can order groceries from the Fido phone Face With Tears Of Joy

Just called a local Fido store in Wpg. They gave me the following instead:

$50 for 9GB first line
$45 for 11GB second line
$200 credit total for both lines combined.
Waived activation fees for both (so called "$80" credit)
Plus both SIM cards for free (so called "$20" credit)

So in the end that's how he claims there's a $150 credit per line. Because $40 of it is from activation fee and $10 from the SIM card.

Also have to go in store to show ID for this deal.

Ya $100 each. Also note that these credits don't get applied immediately. They come 2-3 bill cycles afterwards.

I was hoping for a promo on home internet. I guess Amazon GC is it.

Good deals = always new customers (Just started dating. You treat him/her like a king/queen because you want him/her to choose you instead of other people.)
Charge you extra = old customers (You won the battle. dated for a long time and now you treat them like a normal person.)
Sweet deals = trying to win you back (he/she wants to break up with you. You don't want to so you try everything you can to win him/her back. Please, please don't go. come back to me please. I'm begging you)
You are the dating expert. Winking Face Most people are wandering between Charge you extra and Sweet deals.
But may be eventually there will be a breakup.

It should be for anyone but the code is probably only given to students. They said something about Student Life Network.

Hi redflag0,

Which city are you in? From which store? How did you get the $600 credit? Did you ask them about the university student offer?

I have 5 lines in my family that I want to port over if that's the case.

Thanks.

Could you confirm if it was Fido Corporate store or other retail 3rd party store?

Hey! Toronto, PM me, and I got it because I was moving all three lines I had and activating them with Fido. I didn't mention the Uni promo.

Heres more details of the plan and how I got it

I think you should easily be able to get if not the same amount I got maybe even more than I got to be honest

Has anyone been able to successfully get the $45/11GB promo on a single line account by using the port-out>port-in method?

As in:

1) Add a second line to your existing account at the $45/11GB rate.
2) Port the old number out to another carrier.
3) Port the old number back to your new line.

You may be able to keep the additional 2GB by doing so but will definitely loose $5 discount for multiple line as soon as you end up with only one line.

got the store to honor the 9GB/50 and 11GB/55 plan but no dice on the one-time credit. they said they'll refund the activation fees in 2-3 billing cycles and no sim card fees as well.

Why isn’t this in expired deals? Or at the least remove the credit part. Got my hopes up for no reason.
