Try and call in, maybe they'll give it to you if you ask.

If it makes you feel any better, I was never offered bonus data when they were doing that a year or two ago.

Yeah I was hesitant to drop my $34 plan. I actually had 4gb total for 2 years since they gave an extra 2gb bonus but it expired a few months back. When I tried to renew it they wouldn’t budge. I’ve come too close to going over since so better for me to just pay the extra $10 and not worry anymore about limiting myself.
So you've ended up changing plans already?

I don't think it's hot ... Fido gave me yesterday .. Samsung S9+ for 99$ and 8 Go for 51.75 + tx... So if you have: bring your phone plan for 51$ for 10 go without any new phone..... mehhhh .. They gave me that after 2 hours on the phone ....saying: im going with telus.. I'm with fido since 15 years.. and live in montreal.

Just got off the phone. The rep told me that offers are individualized, which is why some of us .at not be seeing the plan. I ended up switching to a $49/8gb plan.

My advice to others is to talk to a rep about getting additional data bonuses through a retention plan. I was able to get an additional 2gb for no cost. So my plan will now be 8+2gb pulse plan, (with the extra 5x1gb that comes with pulse), for $49, which I'm happy with.

That's extremely YMMV, I don't even see the S9+ listed on the website. Are you sure it's 9+ and not 8+?

And no offence, but spending 2 hours on the phone with them is a lot of time and effort without a guarantee you'll get it.

Yes it's a Samsung s9+ :) It was a lot of time on the phone.. but at the end was worth it :) I was doing my lunch at the same time hehehe!! Yes it's very very very YMMV .. But at the end i got it.. before that .. a month ago i was asking for something like the winback offer.. and they said NO .. ..we can give you 10$ per month.. so i said no way..... so probably my lucky day.. yesterday.. :) I ask him few times..for the S9 Plus.. and say yes it's the s9+ not the other one.. so at the end.. i'm happy dude ;)

Pulse actually gives you 5x1 hour of unlimited data (with semi-throttled speed).

I just got this plan over chat.

It's basically the 49$ plan with a 5$ discount if you're targeted. Chat rep gave me the 49$ plan and applied a 5$ discount for 12 months - pretty much the same thing.

I am in Quebec and I have 2 lines.
I see the $44 8gb offer on the main line which is currently on a black Friday $34 2gb plan.
Second line is a $49 6gb plan and it only shows the $49 8gb option but I guess it works out to the same thing since there is a $5 second line discount.
