I got this deal in my app and I went to store to get my tablet. I showed to the rep and he did my contract. But when I read the contract now, I don't see anything saying waived activation fee or $15/mth credit for 24 months.

I just said I'm now on data only plan - 4gb and table cost $359 and waived for 2 yrs contract.

How can I verify or when will I expect to see the credit in my bill?
Same thing happened to me. My contract isnt showing waived activation or monthly tab fees. They were having issues adding tab to my account. So she had to call to headquarters to get things sorted out. She said my account has everything waived but bill isn't showing as they have standard bills with them but at the back end my account has waived fees.

Called the number on OP's picture. Rep was nice and checked with support and I was eligible.
Tablet should come in two days and I can confirm I will have 4 Gb of data during two years for free, so yes it is a $750 value,
For those wondering, I'm on the Black Friday 2015 BYOD 2Gb+2Gb deal for $34.

$34 for unlimited text and calls, 4Gb (cellphone), free tablet and 4Gb (tablet) is almost stealing.
Thanks OP !

Thanks OP, called Fido and checked qualification. i was on their list, and talked with the rep regarding no fido perks showing up. He mentioned to me that their systems have a glitch and was not sent out to all users.

So guys who ever has Fido cell phone plan, call that number and find out! you'll be missing a free deal! Oh, BTW, he did mention that you will be paying taxes on the tablet only. which is like 35-40 dollars.

Forgot to mention, they will do a credit check as well.

Thanks - got the offer. On $65BYOD/10GB. Picked up at the Fido store.
Lucky you. We have two of these lines with no offer. :(

I will try Live Chatting or whatever. If I were to call in, what is the specific number to call? I saw mention of a number but didn't find one.

if you look at the add-ons section at the bottom of his first screenshot, he is also getting $15 off for 24 months (TAGSRA3TT). I'd say this is legit.

No. It’s a BYOD plan, it’s my phone. And it was a one-day only deal in 2015. That’s why it’s so cheap.

Anyone on BYOD talk and text plans able to get this promo? Will call tomorrow to check.
The eligibility requirement is "postpaid mobile plan with at least 1GB of data".
If you are on talk and text you might qualify if you add at least 1GB of data to your plan (someone reported success earlier going that route).

Thx..yes..my contract doesn't show those Add-on name for credits. Store closed now..will have to go tmr and ask.

I wonder if I can get it fix by ANY fido store?
Any store should do it (even Fido's phone/support) but the problem is some don't have a clue whats going on and think the client is making up the story (already reported earlier) so it's just easier to go back to the original store that is taking the commission for the contract and let them make sure everything is in order.
