Weird, Ive been with them on autopay for 5 years. They don't seem to fussed about me me leaving. I have a couple of Everywhere plans and FNF discounts on all lines, maybe that's why.
Try porting all your number for sure they will call you back.

Got the 10 GB bonus but had to remove the 5 GB bonus. So net 5 GB free - no complaints.

I used iMessage and was told I’d have to upgrade my phone. So I asked to be transferred to their manager which got me to their retention / loyalty department. They were able to apply the bonus without any upgrades.

I don't. I was a happy camper for a while even after they took off my DD few years back saying everywhere 60 is not qualifying, on 3 out of 5 of my lines.... Then they removed multi-line discount for everyone 'in order to serve us better'. Now... It's open season.
Freedom has been complacent since early spring, not reacting till now to multiple campaign's by incumbents to undermine them. They've spent whole last year edging toward big boys in prices, actively making grandfathered plans second class citizens, without significantly improving service.
Only this month I started seeing marked improvement in speed and coverage throughout GTA, with introduction of band 66-7 CA.
I am sure churn was starting to show, and people rather than being forced off grandfathered plan and jumping toward their more expensive plans that give you less (Or have everything same but take f&f away. Or give you more but cost 5 bucks less than comparable incumbent plan), people chose to jump ship and pay same or just a smidge more (taking advantage of the various campaigns) for better networks.

Getting rid of "better together savings" caused my bill to go up $20. That still pisses me off. They should have just grandfathered it...

Like I said if they ever get rid of or increase the price of PE50 then I'm out the door ASAP.

I have no loyalty to any company.

That's why you are mayor. I'd vote for you with that slogan.

Good advice and you are probably right, but I have the itch to change now. LOL

$141 + tax for 4 * 11 GB lines and a 4 GB tablet plan with a free Tab 8.4 seems really good to me.

Thanks OP. Got hold of customer service via chat and i was told that i am eligible for this bonus 10 gigs on my existing 2 lines. Had him activate it on my lines.

However, i am unable to see anything on my account. Should this appear anywhere on your account portal?

Some years the black friday deals are great, other years they are not as good as the deals the month before.

Last time I did my phone upgrade just before the full Black Friday deals where announces. Indeed the Black Friday deals were better, but they were out of stock completely for the phone I wanted. So my plan to return and resign-up for the same plan at the better rate was squashed. Overall, I think I got a pretty good deal. Had I waited, I would have got a lower price, but I would not have gotten what I really wanted which was the Pixel 3 XL.

Does not apply to grand fathered plans , changed my plan 50$ 10gb to a 1+10gb plan for 35$ , only lost my U.s. LD and nation wide data 500gb, but never used it anyway, so now saving 15$ a monthx12=180$ per yr+taxes
Thank-you freedom and fido competitiveness
