There's been a few decent freebies from Harvey's and Second Cup too.

I never seem to be targeted for these tablet+free data offers either.

I've been with Fido when Fido was not owned by Rogers, more than 13 years I believe. Practically the first year they launched....all I got was a Swatch watch once and a call once saying how nice that I've long I've been with them. You'd think they would text me with this offer, idiots.

YMMV - targeted offer
Do you have a voice plan too? Did they send you this text to your voice plan?

$40 activation fee
She checked and the Samsung 8.4 is also eligible but it is $5/month for 2 years instead of $0 like the T5

Thanks op!
Try doing it through live chat, usually activation fees are waived when not done over the phone.

Don't know how all of yous missed this, but we are enjoying weird freebies from Fido for years and years... and there is ongoing thread here:

[Fido] 4GB LTE Data Plan $10, BYOD, no contract (Read OP & Thread Summary 1st)

It' is up-to-date and reading OP & Thread Summary will give you several ideas, firstly that, yes, you can cancel your voice line afterwards [if you don't sign new phone line contract with this particular promo!] and also give alot ideas to those of yous who never received this offer on how to go about it and get free data plan, and tablet either free or even for -$5 etc...

Back when I got the offer, there was no way to get into a BYOD contract (since that doesn't make sense lol) so I was being forced to get a phone as well. Luckily they were selling an iPhone 6S for $0 down so it was basically a free phone. They were literally giving me a free phone, tablet and data plan for no extra cost if I signed a piece of paper agreeing to stay with them for 2 years. Face With Tears Of Joy
$0 down but there's still a monthly cost over the 2 year term, the iPhone 6S is $3/month for Certified Pre-Owned, $5/month New on Clearance, x24 months=$74-$120, no not free but still cheap (cost of a donut & coffee or 2 once a month), Alternatives in that price range (all $5/month=$120 over 2 years) is the Samsung Galaxy A20 (New, on Clearance), Motorola Moto G7 Play (New, on Clearance), Google Pixel 3a (Certified Pre-Owned), Samsung Galaxy A10e (Certified Pre-Owned).

Same thing for jobs, you get higher salary if you move..... Or you have to have a job offer from somewhere else.....
