[Virgin Mobile] [Targetted BYOD & 2 YR] $45/6GB Unlim Canada Wide Talk/Text FREE Samsung A8 -or- $40/6GB BYOP No Contract

Got this notice when logging into a prepaid account.

Member Deal Alert !
Get the Samsung A8 for $0 with 6GB of data & UNLIM Canada-Wide talk/text for $45/mo on select 2yr plans! Plus, for a limited time we'll waive the $35 activation fee! Pop by a Virgin Mobile store or give us a shout at 1-866-379-8596 for details!

UPDATE:
Also available - $40/6GB BYOP no contract
If you don't have a Virgin Mobile prepaid account already, go buy a sim card from ebay/staples/kijiji and setup an account, the offer will appear instantly.

UPDATE 2:
Seems like the RFD effect has kicked in.
Virgin Mobile is now saying you need to have a prepaid account active for 30 days before taking advantage of this offer and that its a glitch in their system for new accounts made and showing eligibility instantly.

UPDATE 3:
New message when logging in says...
"Heads up! In order to redeem this offer, you must have an active Virgin Mobile prepaid account for at least 60 days!"

Possibly, but I suspect anyone whos experienced in dealing with customer service can get this.
Are they really going to turn down new business?

Also can use as leverage with your current provider.

Sell the phone, use it towards getting whatever phone you want... or put the money towards your account and drop your monthly bill down to $30.41+tax
A8 is worth about $350

No out of province lying about your address scam required.

We purchased a prepaid off eBay, created an account and was "qualified" for their promo and spent over an hour in store cause they couldn't activate it even after signing in and showing them the message. Phone reps were rude and clueless. Asked to speak to a manager and she basically implied I didn't have access because I was a prepaid customer. After a lot time spent on the phone, she said a manager would contact us back. Never heard back.


The girlfriend ended up signing up with Zoomer wireless. I've been with them before Koodo had they're $40/8gb promo and had no issues.

Went on their live chat and said a family friend is on a $36/4gb plan and that I was interested in the same plan.
Within 10 mins we were good to go. No beating around the bush.

400 Canada-wide Weekday Minutes
Unlimited after 6PM
Unlimited Outgoing Text from Canada to Canada/US/International
Unlimited MMS
4 GB Data Usage
2Yr contract
Free LG Q6 (which she will sell to offset any contract penalties down the road)
Zommer $25 referral bonus

$40.XX after taxes

You also can get google pixel 2 xl for $19.99 with $50 6Gb data plan, one of my friend got the deal from a virgin mobile kiosk in Scarborough, I believe they have some special promo.

I am in the market for 2 lines on BYOD plan. Currently with Rogers and paying $65+tax each line. I only use about 4GB of data but would like something with 6GB just to be safe. I would love to figure out how to get this plan. Otherwise, thinking of trying out Freedom.

Agreed.

Phone may be garbage to you but still worth money.

Wondering if it's any cheaper without that phone OR if I can pay something down and get a better phone. Will call as this is showing for me online.
