NOTE: The real price is $9.99/month + (GST+PST * $1270)/24 because they charge tax on the original device price.

It ends up being $17.XX per month in BC/ON/QC. It's pretty bullshit that they can pull something like that legally.

It is bs that you need to pay tax for the full original price.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

It's about the principle. Why is the government getting a 15% cut of $1200 (for a 2 year old Pixel 3 XL lmfao) when the consumer is paying $240 over the course of 2 years? How does that make any sense?

Ugh. I was pretty excited to get my dad a new phone for $240 lol. For $408 I'd start to consider a pixel 4a...

I was able to get the Pixel 3XL plus a free Huawei tablet while on a BYOD $50 plan. I just selected keep existing plan and everything went through successfully and monitored subsequent bills and all was alright.

Wait so the after tax price is $408 for the remaining 2 yrs? If that's the case this is not as hot. Especially with the 4a just around the corner.

Also they don't have any pixel 3 apparently. The pixel 3xl is a bit too big

It's not legal or the correct accounting method. Who ever is advising them should be fired!

I can confirm it works on BYOD as well. When it prompts you to select a plan, there’s a Tab next to it that says “Keep existing plan” and it goes through without a hitch

its a crafty way of getting lower numbers

here is something for a quote that I did.

P20 Pro.
Full price $950.00
Total Fido Payment Program amount $950.00
Down payment $0.00
Fido Payment Program term 24 months
Monthly payment (plus taxes) $39.58 ( 950 / 24)
Interest rate: 0.00%
Annual Percentage Rate (APR): 0.00%
Cost of borrowing: $ 0.00

total monthly cost = 39.58*1.13 = 44.73

discount = 29.58 (this is after tax )

final monthly cost = 44.73-29.58 = 15.15


what they advertise is 39.58 - 29.58 = ~10 ( rounding a penny)

Definitely don’t condone the way Fido markets the “discount” price. Still a great value IMO. For me, it’s either stock android or Apple phone and there’s no brand new top-of-line Apple phone that could be had for $300. ^_^”

Were you on the 40$ 5GB plan? I tried, and I don't see "Keep Existing Plan" as an option.
