[Fido] Retention, $72/8GB, Free iPhoneX

I switched to Public Mobile ($40/4.5GB plan) 2 weeks ago. (I was on Fido 2+2GB $45 plan)
Received a call from Fido Customer Service today.
They offered $72/8GB, Unlimited Calling, , free iPhone X on a 2 year contract.
I said that I'm going to think about it (not really), they sent me the text message with phone number 1-866-396-3436 EXR 3897) that I should call to get the promo.

You're paying for that "free" iPhone at $72 a month.
Better off migrating to Koodo for the $40/8GB plan.

I received the same call back when I cancelled my plan, they offered 10GB for the same amount and a free Galaxy S9. I still said no because 10GB of data would tempt me to spend too much time online.

Sell the iphone for $1000, the Fido plan is $31 a month for 24 month, Fido offer is a better deal. If you're going to buy the iPhone anyways outright from the Apple store, the Fido offer is a better deal.

Fido winback also offers $60 5GB with the same phone, sometimes with a few hundred dollar credit thrown in, even a better deal.

Did I say Fido overall is a better deal? Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I thought retentions/winback offered a $500 credit on top of what you are offered OP. Was there any mention of that?

It's on the Rogers Winback and that's hotter than Koodo imo

+1 Rogers/Fido WinBack (if you are an ex customer) is hotter than the Koodo Migration deal.

WinBack offers $500 credit, free phone, and $80/10GB for Rogers.

OP, you may wish to update/edit your title !

If I understand, this is a Fido retention because you left them. It is NOT a Public Mobile retention or Public Mobile specific offer.

if you need/want the iphone x it is a no brainer.. no harm to try to bargin a bit more.. knock down the monthly fee. If you dont need a phone see if you can get a price match(or better) on the plan itself. no harm to try. if no go than stay on pm. I dont think the fido university offer is still available but you can also try that. Best of luck to you.

Hold on to them there horses!

New iphones coming, details out tomorrow. Prices will fluctuate. Don't lock in to an 'old' model iphoneX price before the dust settles.

What I mean is there will be a better deal for the current versions being offered. I guarantee you Fido will drop their price on this retention deal for the same phone and term. It may take a few more weeks....whenever the newer phones become available in Canada. The big ticket item will be the new XS, so that will make the price on these drop.
