So guys, don't know how valid this is, but this is what I got from one rep:

Targeted offers will only be higher than your existing plans, so for example, you have a 40$ BYOD plan, they will offer you 50$ 5GB small plan, or 55$ 5GB Medium plan, but will not offer you a 40$ 5 GB BYOD plan.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

With the A8 you have thinner bezel, Super AMOLED screen, IP 68 water and dust proof. Plus Samsung's Touch Wiz is miles better than Huawei's iphone copy cat Emotion UI.

Two different price ranges, the A8 is for 299$ on medium tab, while P10 is 0$ on small tab.

That is correct, in the sense that you would have to pay the "free" device balance left if you break the contract.

In QC, currently on 34$/4Gb BYOD. They are offering 58$/8Gb or 67$/10Gb small plans.

Pass...
I can't afford to buy cheap stuff. Therefore, I'm thirsty for deals on durable goods.

Not true.

My wife is on the $39 600mb plan and her best offer online was $55 for 5GB.

heyyahblah wrote: Is it different in BC? Because on the Ontario Fido page it says that the Samsung A8 is $0 with 2-year agreement on a Extra Large plan and the Huawei P10 is $0 on a Small Plan so for people in ON there is no comparison, you cannot get the A8 on the Small or Medium Tab, its only available on the Extra Large Tab, so of course spec wise the A8 will be superior. If you took an extra large tab, why not get the S8 instead for $80 more and get $50 back in credit? S8>A8
I was able to get the A8 for $0 for my $55 Medium tab plan. I'm in BC.

Well what he said is still true. Like. your wife may or may not get an offer for a 40$ for 5gb plan but someone with a plan of 40$ and higher will never get an offer for a 40$ for 5gb.

If you have the code for the 50$ small, there is no reason for it not to be applied.

It's a tool that we use to save long term customers with, and your account has to be tagged for it. It's not something that a customer can just ask for. And in fact very few customers are even able to get this plan. So please stop asking for loyalty plans advertised on here. It makes our job very hard when were trying to make sales, and keep our stats up. You can view all of our in market plans by going to www.fido.ca/plans thx.
I get you Dave, but sorry, I have RAN large support centers for tech companies for DECADES and if all management there is looking at are numbers, they're to put it bluntly; idiots! Short term forecasting helps no one and I've had to lay out the long term numbers for bean counters and marketers. This seems like something that would make yet another good CBC report for name and shame. If plans are available for even 1 customer in a province it should be available for ALL customers.

Folks, having said what I said, please do not poop on the front line guys and gals like Dave as they are just trying to survive and follow policy. Instead reach out to the Office of the President for Rogers and make them give you a sensible answer - not a marketing has determined this answer.

I hear you. At the same time when the general public see such a great offer we just can't help ourselves and just try. You would too if you were a customer? =)

I agree with you. If it's available for 1 customer it should be available to ALL period. Sask and Manitoba still has the best plans out there. The Freedom model for example is fair and square.

Wife was on $45 BYOP plan with 2 GB. (Minus 10% discount).
Switched using messenger chat to the $50 Small Pulse Loyalty plan with 5 GB.
Ontario.

Lost my 10% additional line discount that I apparently wasn’t supposed to be eligible for in the first place.

lol the first mistake you did is referencing redflagdeals and that would usually result in an immediate NO. Try something better next time but it doesn't matter in this case.
