Well, 33/mo for the 24 month contract is $792 for the phone and buds. Is that really a hot deal?

This is very cold. See previous trade-in offers (can trade in any broken phone)

Was an EPP thing but linked from an ad saying that they had deals for anyone with a university or college email? https://portal.rmcsolutions.ca/telusepp#Home

Well, here's what my calculation says assuming you get in market $50 BYOD plan with 8 GB or $55 for 11 GB (of course, not considering loyalty or win-back plans as YMMV)

Phone cost = $33 x 24 months = $792+taxes
Discounts = $120 ($10 x 12 months) + $240 ($10 x 24 months) + $100 bill credit + $250 PC Optimum Points = $710+taxes
Net cost of phone and buds = $82+taxes

How is this not hot? Am I missing something?

Yeah i think it is. Personally I'd have no issue with this as i typically keep phones for 2 years and then when i change i never use the old one again lol but i suppose that's not for everyone

The phones is not worth $860 Inc. Tax.
I am using S21 ultra. And I've paid significantly lesser so hold off for better deal or buy it privately... Prob get it less than $700 within GTA.

Question. Where does the "$240 ($10 x 24 months)" part come from? Only mentions $10 for 12 months

How much is the phone worth ? Its going for 969 on samsungs website. With OPs post you're getting it for significantly less than 700

For those people with Optimum points who don't know what to spend them on, often you can pay up to $500 upfront at The Mobile Shop on a mobile device using your points.

$35 / mo for the phone
$10 discount for 24 months
$10 discount for 12 months
$100 bill credit
200 000 PC points (can be applied directly to the phone payments)
Free galaxy buds (~$200 value)

Anyone know of a way I can take advantage of the buds live offer if I purchased the phone a week prior to the promotion date of June 8? The live chat people weren't of any help.

I think the Fido discount of $10/m x 24 months is in lieu of the Virgin $10/m x 12 months, you aren't supposed to add both discounts together. Its either $10/m x 24 months with Fido or $10/m x 12 months with Virgin. So OP calculation is off, it should be more than what OP posted. If you were looking to sign up anyway, the total cost for the phone after factoring in all discounts is actually a hot deal, if you don't mind staying 24 months

when you get it with contract, they will include tax for the full retail price, which be around $180 plus the cost..
therefore, I felt that is pricy and not really a deal.
