[Fido] 5GB extra for free for some loyalty customers

Just got a message saying they’re offering me 5GB/month for no extra cost or contract. Don’t know anyone else got this or not.

And when I got to the “My Account” page in Fido, this popped up:

Additionally I have been using an offered deal of 20GB/month for $50 since the day after the outage happened. Basically a total of 25GB/month now.

After well over a year (or two?) of hearing about everyone getting these free bonus data offers I finally got it. It still won't keep me from looking elsewhere when my contract is up this year.

I'm in Vancouver if anyone is wondering.

If this was offered on my 0 data plan, that would be like winning a lottery lol.

In Winnipeg earlier today, a coworker of mine said he logged into his Fido account and "they gave me an extra 5 gigs on my account at no extra cost...so now I have 30 gigs for $55/mo." Why can't Rogers do this for me? Comparison, I have corporate plan which gives me $52 for 15GB.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the offer would appear if login via browser vs app?

This was my offer when I logged in. 10GB for $40 would have been more appealing to me.

Yup! Thanks OP. Just got my extra 5GB added. Most ppl probably have a much better deal than I do but $65 for 25GB isn't bad at all.

Will this erase/replace any existing bonuses? I already have some from previous offers and wouldn't want to lose those for 5GB.

So sad.
Call or chat in and just ask. I did and they gave me 3 gb extra for 3 months this time which isn't great, but I'm in Ontario, and I already have a $10/m loyalty discount on my plan. In the past I've had 15 bonus gb, lost it when I down graded plans due to working at home.

note that you can still receive this promotion even if you claimed it before. I claimed this back in september then received the same notification about a month later thinking I'm getting 5+5.
but it removed my original bonus 5 gb and I had to contact customer service to get them to re-apply the bonus 5 gb.

Thank you. That has happened to me previously and they wouldn't reverse it, so before I had 5GB bonus and accepted an offer for 2GB more and was stuck on 2GB. I complained and all they would do is 3GB for 3 months. And then another 5GB came, so I took it and I am up to 8GB, but don't want to risk it, especially, since I don't need the extra data.

I got a bonus 5Gb from Rogers. No notification whatsoever. I checked my Rogers app, and saw I have an extra 5Gb available this month.
