[Fido] Get a $0 tablet on a FREE 2-year 4gb tablet plan (targeted, YMMV)

Got a text from Fido (4735) and it seems that they're doing this again!

Please read old thread: fido-fido-xtra-get-0-tablet-free-2-year ... 1-2306636/

I opted for the Huawei Mediapad T5 10 over the Samsung Tab A 8.4.

Do you have a talk and text plan? Do you have other tablet plans with Fido? Are the tablets new or CPO?

It's a new tablet, not CPO (Samsung Tab A 8.4) with text and data of 4GB.

Thanks OP. chatted with an agent and got a new samsung tab A 8.4. I should get my tablet in 2 to 3 business days. I have saved the chat just incase so that there is proof.
I will be using the sim in my regular phone. How are you guys making local calls? Are you using an app?

I got the same deal last September. The only complain is that the Huawei Mediapad T5 10 is very low now.

Is the cost of the tablet wrapped up in the pricing?

I'm wondering if there's an additional charge baked in to cover the cost of the tablet over those 2 years.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

yes, this is what the agent quoted to me too. It is good to have it in writing that we don't pay anything.

I don't think so. they are are just hoping that you don't move out of Fido for 2 years. That is profit enough for them

I was able to get an existing data line upgraded to this promo for $0. I added another data line for $10 as they claimed the offer had expired but instead they gave me 5GB bonus for 24months = 9GB for $10. I called today about the Freedom offer and they added 5GB bonus on both my 5GB lines but only for 2months. So I pay around $100 for 2 voice + data plans and 2 data lines with free tablets.

Just a correction, it's the Tab A 8.4 not the 8. Specs are a bit better than the 8.
