I tried live chat just now and they were offering the Samsung Tab A, but I would lose my current 50% loyalty discount when they convert me over to the new data plan. Had to pass. Might try again later this week.
If you are only on the data-plan you are not eligible for this offer, BUT, you can still get a free tablet (given you are not currently on a contract and willing to sign a new one) and keep your current 50% discount, just call retention and discuss it with them (this has nothing to do with the promo on this thread though, there are several success reports on the thread linked in my sig below).

Is there a big difference between the 2018 and 2019 models?
A tad better CPU (~50% faster) and GPU.
Higher max capacity mSD slot.
Stereo speakers.
Better rear camera.
Ships with 1 Android OS up, so should get one more bump compared to 2018 model.

just did this

live chat and phone rep both confirmed it was 2019 model

live chat said I had to go to store. phone rep said they would ship me it

about 8-12 days before it gets shipped

youll get charged the $35 activation fee but apparently you get the credit back on the 2nd or 3rd billing.
Pretty sure what the agent meant was the device added to Fido in 2019 and she assumes it’s a 2019 model

Hi, what’s the exact model of this tablet? I would like to buy one of these off of someone at a discounted price if the specs are okay.

If you can't use Fido/Rogers LTE network, it's pointless because real deal is that 24 months free 4GB LTE service.

Samsung Canada doesn't release Galaxy Tab A 2019 LTE model yet in Canada. Only available Tab A 2019 Wifi only model.
That's why Fido offers Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 2018 LTE model.

Then its worth it. They should give the latest. Typical Fido trying to stick its customers with year old junk and a contract, experienced it before firsthand. I'd still go for this deal as lots more people would too if fido gives the latest 2019 model.

And nothing is for free, why would fido give a free tablet at $0 for 2 years? Wish they gave gift card on top... Then its be a hot deal.
Imagine lugging around a tablet...

Typical Fido? What exactly is typical about a carrier giving a FREE tablet with FREE service with FREE setup?

So you are complaining that the FREE tablet isnt the most current up to date tablet available even though its not even available in Canada actually making the FREE tablet they are giving in fact the most up to date available tablet model in Canada.

Then you go on to say that the FREE tablet and FREE plan isnt free which is contrary to the literally thousands of people and posts here. Now you want a 2019 tablet (that isnt available) and FREE and a GIFT card?

Lordy, please put a /s or sarc at the end so people like me dont take you seriously. I mean you cant be serious. This is either a well crafted very low key sarcastic comment or perhaps the most ignorant comment I have ever seen on RFD.

It is a FREE tablet with a FREE plan. Please tell me you are being sarcastic.

I was saving this for the myriad of SDM points threads but this deserves it more. Its in good fun so no offence intended, just a friendly jab.

This is what I think of when people keep posting the same questions over and over and over again. just to be clear aasoror is the king. edit: answering the same questions over and over again.

I am wondering if I can resurrect my two months old account (which I closed/converted to prepaid due to billing issue)? Would this be eligible for this promo?
