[Fido] YMMV Convert Prepaid to Postpaid, keep your balance, and get free tablet (on tablet plan)!
- Deal Link:
Summary: I was able to transfer my prepaid balance to postpaid credit, and sign up for a $10/month, 250 min, 250 text BYOD plan, and once that was set up, get my free tablet on a tablet plan!
I've had a backup SIM for years now on the Fido $10/month prepaid topup, no included minutes or anything (yes, I know there are cheaper options).
Since I rarely use the plan, I build up quite a balance.
Fido has for years tried to entice me to convert to postpaid, but the offers were always lacklust, and I always would end up loosing my prepaid balance (usually hundreds of dollars).
Well, Fido got me with the following text:
Switching was a breeze, although the rep did mention about 300 times that the credit wouldn't show up on my Fido account until the second month.
So, I waited for the second month to post this, and all is right in the world!
Once I had that, I signed up for the tablet plan with free tablet as second line!
Both lines are also Fido Xtra compatible if that is important.
