[Fido] BC/AB - Fido Winback $45 25GB (+5gb) + bonus offer -- YMMV
For B.C./AB people formerly on Fido, as a competitive answer to Shaw mobile, there is now a $45 25GB winback plan.
I'm from Vancouver
(sept 5) port out from fido to competitor (Freedom prepaid)
(sept 7) received email from fido ambassador of a an exclusive offer which can only be discussed on phone...
(sept 10) received a call today from fido winback
mention i have port to shaw mobile $45 - 25gb, came back few minutes with the plan match!
** rep then offer $10 credit for next 24 month! (starting at 2 - 3 billing cycle)
$45 - $10 (bill credit) = $35
$40 activation charge will be waived (at 2 - 3 billing cycle)
also available $300 bill credit for new phone (dec 07 2020 updated) (I didn’t need it) which is another cherry on top.
*must decided at the time of activation*
call customer services to port your number back to Fido, once you received the sim card (from courier)
Good luck. YMMV.
