[Fido] Fido - 5GB free data bonus. YMMV

Just login to my account online and noticed there is an offer for 5GB free data addon for Fido as well. Similar to Koodo.
I am on a 2 year term with more than 1 year remaining on a winback offer of $40 for 5GB data. Location is Toronto.
Most likely targeted offer. YMMV.

I called Fido and asked this morning. It is an permanent addon. The agent even tested with changing my plan to see if the addon will remain.
Edit: Looks like the add on will remain if plan is not changed.

I would have the thread title to be "5GB free data bonus"
Post corrected. Did it in a hurry and did not notice this.

I got this one line where I have a BYOP plan and was offered an iphone 8 for $0 and $0/month about 2 years ago. I have only 1gb of data on this plan.
I got the bonus 5gb offer from 6 months ago, and then that same line just got the bonus offer again. So for $40/month I got 1gb+10gb bonus data, while getting a free iphone 2+ years ago...

None of my other lines which I pay $50+ for plans and also have phone payments for got this offer.

Thanks, OP.
Got the 5 GB extra data offer and accepted it.
My notes:
1. Had to log into My Account using a browser to see offer, offer did not show up in app.
2. Once accepted, it took 10+ mins for extra data allowance to be reflected
3. I am in BC
4. Fido plan is Winback $35 for 6 GB (incl. 2x2 GB bonuses)
5. Did a HUP with Fido two weeks ago so I have a 2 year contract with them for basically the next 2 years
6. Historically I use less than 2 GB of data per month

Offer didn't say how long the bonus will remain.

Thanks OP! Got this for one of my lines.

P.S. Why people down voting? If it's only because you didn't get it - do not envy. OP just made aware for possible freebie

Not worth imo. Even in normal time it would be really hard to use that much data monthly, not even mentioning covid time.. Also, as data is getting cheaper and carriers are becoming more competitive, I think we will for sure see something like $50 for 20gb to be a new norm by end of 2021. It's better to stick with your plan for now, unless its a very shitty one Disappointed But Relieved Face
