[Boxing Day] Iphone 12/12 Mini Boxing Week Sale

Deal Link:
Retailer:
The Mobile Shop
For anyone who missed the device sale on black Friday, the mobile shop is doing bonus points and trade in again.
I passed by TMS at 825 Don Mills Road today & the manager Khalees S told me the boxing week sale starting tonight. Most carriers will do 300K bonus points + 50 bucks for old device trade-in. The monthly payment for 64gb iPhone 12 is like 25/month except for Freedom( Freedom is doing 250K bonus points, but only 15/month).
This make the device cost like this:
All carries except Freedom: 25 x 24 x 1.13 - 300 - 50 = 328 Total it's around 78 down and 10 per month in 24 months

Freedom: 15 x 24 x 1.13 - 250 - 50 = 106.8 total. It's around 40 down and 2.5 per month in 24 months. The drawback is you need to go with their "Big gig" plan(75 per month account to the sale). that's very hmmmm

Iphone 12 Mini is only with Fido and Rogers now. Their deals are similar to black Friday. You will get 250K bonus points and 50 trade-in credit for anything can turn on

Iphone 12 Mini(64gb): 15 x 24 x 1.13 - 250 - 50 = 106.8 total. It's around 46 down and 2.5 per month in 24 months
Iphone 12 Mini(128gb): 18 x 24 x 1.13 - 250 - 50 = 188.16 total. It's around 56 down and 5.5 per month in 24 months

Since Fido can give 10 bucks off for 15 months when you do a device upgrade, I think it has the best value from the price point.

You will get 50 accessories credit for Iphone 12/mini as well.
Update:
Iphone 12 mini Bonus points has been increased from 250k to 400k. This is even hotter than black Friday. Iphone 12 Bonus points is 350K instead of 300K for Bell and virgin.

That's great offers are coming back.

What plans can this be combined with? If you can't get the $35 Virgin plan with it, then factor the difference in as an additional cost on getting a device with it.

The Telus store (Richmond, BC) was advertising $40/month on Koodo for 12gb, but if you are already a telus home subscriber then you get $10 additional savings on your home bill with having koodo or telus mobile.

Not bad but not as good as BF. I guess at one point BD deals were the best now it’s just ?

BF deal was $300+$100(trade in) + $20/mth financing.

I thought BF deal for The Mobile Shop was $200 + $100 trade in with $15/mo or half off OR $17.92 for 128gb.

It seems to me that the boxing day deal is better, though there is the $120 Fido accessories that may be still happening.

yup I agreed. BF deal is hotter than BD now. As I talked with the manager, the good thing is they have enough stock this time & most of the colors are available. The BF deal was super hot but stocking was an issue. I was lucky to get a phone when it just shipped to the store.

Rogers EPP:

iphone 12 mini 64gb $4.09/month (24 months)
return after 24 months or keep it after 24 months but need to pay $237

plan: $55/month 30GB

$55 + $4.09 = $59.09 + tax

So if i were to cancel right after sign up, the iPhone 12 Mini would cost the $800 device balance minus $250 in PC Points and $50 trade in?

At bb it was $300 + $100 + $20 financing on BF. It was $200 days before BF. Factoring in the $100 for financing made it $300 + $15.83.

OP, based on your conversation with the manager, is it safe to assume the points won’t be higher on Boxing Day?

Also, the price on Freedom’s iPhone 12 is different from Freedom’s website. They have iPhone 12 for $20 per month (regular, not with TradeUp), but on a $40 plan. While the price of the phone is higher than what is advertised at TMS, the all in price when factoring points is still enticing if you are okay with Freedom’s network.
PM me for quicker response, thanks

What's the lowest plan cost and data given that someone can go with if they're with any select carrier except Freedom?

Its not cheaper than BF. We got iphone 12 with $20 tab with $400 PC points.

After taking 360 in points, tab was reduced to $5 a month and still got $40 PC points. Plan was $40 per month.

So I've been looking for 12 mini.

Costco and TMS offer $250 worth of points / credit with device at monthly cost of $15/$18 for the 64/128 GB models.

However the plans start at $50 for 12 gigs with Fido.

Fido directly offers the same device cost with plans starting $41.25 for 4 GB. However there is no 250 credit, only a $50 credit (YMMV).

I checked with Costco and TMS, they won't be able to offer the lower plans. Now my question is, would one be able to change to plan to a lower value later on if we were to take $50 from TMS for now?

I think once you change plans you lose discounts so if the new plan is cheaper vs the old one with discounts, doubt there will be an issue

confirmed with the store.. The $10 credit for 15 month only applies to plans at $55 rate not $50 that it was on BF.

Does someone have any other info?
