Samsung S21 Ultra - $ 15.75 monthly (bring-it-back amt. $ 610) + 15 GB plan for $ 56 per month + free Samsung Buds live

Expiry:
June 21, 2021
Retailer:
Telus EPP
EPP deal

There is a new promo for Samsung S21 ultra. You will get Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Gift-with-Purchase from June 8 to June 21.

The monthly amount is $ 15.75 on 2 years contract.
You can get 15 GB data plan for $ 56 per month
The bring-it-back discount is $ 610. If you decide to keep the phone after 2 years, you have to pay that to Telus.
You have to pay $ 118 in device taxes upfront so that if you decide to keep the phone you don't have to pay any taxes (some weird Telus rule)

There is a $ 45 connection fee but some Telus dealers are offering free stuff to make up for that. In the past, I dealt with Hotwire Communications (https://www.hotwiretoronto.ca/), they were offering me free case, charging block and screen protector to compensate for that $ 45 fee. So talk with your dealer. You could also get lucky in persuading Telus EPP to waive that fee after getting free goodies.

Does telus still charge a $50 fee to port out a telus consumer number to EPP? Or it's a straight connection fee regardless of existing service? If you plan to keep EPP after 2 years bonus, if not it cost you basically $2/mo. If it's with all accounts that sign up (current epp clients) it's an extra hidden $2/mo. fee.

I just (few days ago) purchased a s21 ultra and regular s21 that haven't even arrived. I wonder if there is any way for me to take advantage of this?

pretty sure you can call for a price adjustment or rather return the phones and just repurchase ...

So you end up paying 378$ for loaning a S21 Ultra for 2 years? Seems like a great deal as long as you don't break it between then. Even then, 988$ is a good price if you have to buy it at the end. You're just deferring most of the purchase basically.

Telus EPP has a BYOD plan for $50/15GB. The plan costs $56 if you add a device ,so remember to include that $6 difference when calculating the true device cost over 24 months

This is tempting. My current Telus EPP expires in September so I would owe them about $100 for my previous remaining device balance for my S10+. I might have to pull the trigger on this.

Some EPP plans have a little bit extra discount. It does not apply to everybody. Mine had an extra $ 4.25 discount (after tax) per month. It was offsetting that $ 6 extra difference for me. You should talk with a dealer and find out the details. If you have some specific questions, I don't know the details. Besides Telus EPP line, you can also call your local dealer. If you don't have one, you can try Hotwire Communications, their number is 1-800-715-1468.

You can also sell free Samsung Buds Live on Ebay or Kijiji. Samsung official price for those buds is $ 199.99. It will offset your phone cost.

Called and because I haven't received my phone yet I can still apply for the free buds on both phones coming.

15 GB plan is 15+ plan. After 15 GB, you still get data but at slower speed.

Any chance they would waive a portion of the remaining device balance from the previous contract? Have 3 months left (current cycle included)

Silly question: can I just get the phone but not the plan?

BHPhotovideo has a decent sale on the ultra and + models. Just not sure how much customs/duties would be at the border. Tempted to pull the trigger and find out.

Wherever I buy it from, I would go with Ultra model instead of + model. S21 and S21+ has lower screen resolution than S21 Ultra. For me, that is a deal breaker......In addition, BHPhotovideo is selling Samsung S21 Ultra 256 GB model for $ 1200 USD or $ 1460 CDN roughly. You will also have to pay taxes at the border. That is too much money for me.
