With a one year agreement contract, I can't believe signing one allows the supplier to increase their price anytime. What would be the purpose of a contract/agreement then?
They re providing you a credit/discount.That allows them to raise the price but still give you the credit/discount you were getting.It's pretty common .

So you guys are getting 100m for $35 or $37.5 without wireless?

Probably won't call in again for the $2.50/month but just curious :)

That's crazy. Can one imagine a car company doing that: Get a Honda/Toyota for $199 per month which includes monthly discounts, on a 48 month lease. Two months later, they raise your price and charge you $279 per month (or biweekly, whatever) and they tell you not to worry because you're getting the same credits.

That's bizarre that they're allowed to get away with that - when it's a contract agreement. People should fight that with the CRTC to get some consumer protections. A contract should be a contract for both parties -- yes, I know, it's written into the fine print likely.

Had a $50 Virgin GC from last year's promotion in 'waiting approval' limbo for three months. Called the 3rd party number on the verso, they instructed me to tell Virgin CS them old GCs are not in effect anymore.

Virgin CSR then credited my Virgin account with the fitty.

Wondering if there will be similar Boxing Week promos where there's a GC incentive for sign up. I think last year Wireless Wave had the best offer (store/kiosk credit for accessories, $150 GC, and 50% off service). Definitely an extra hassle of canceling and hooking it back up though.

Was on this plan this past yr ($35/month for 100), contacted them and the rep offered to extend my promos for another year. pretty hassle free. Good experience.

It certainly doesn't work for Quebec customers. I tried yesterday and the best they offered was 100 at $55 (which is already on their website).

It's a clever way to market a discount price while leaving room for increases. Completely legal.

Remember the actual deal is on the monthly credit they give you (ie. $30 off the base price for 12-months). The deal is not on the final price you pay each month. In the agreement you sign, they guarantee the monthly credit for 12 months do not change, which is true. However, your final monthly price can increase if they increase the base price.

The promotion does not guarantee the base or final price although it certainly sounds like it if you don't pay close enough attention!

If you're talking to a sales rep they'll say "promotional price is guaranteed for 12 months" which makes you think the final price won't change but if you press them for clarification they'll then tell you the final price isn't really guaranteed, it's really just the monthly promotional credit that's guaranteed.

I got my $35 credit extended for another year by calling in. I logged into my account to see if the credit had gone through, and they seem to have raised my base Internet price from $70/month to $72.50/month so now I'll be paying $37.50/month instead of $35/month. I am fine with this (like, it is $2.50, I will live) but of course the CSR never mentioned this on the phone haha ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Just called in and same thing happened to me
First she tried to sell me on $80-35 credit.
But in the end I got my original deal so I thought. $70-35
Logged into account and it's gone up $2.50 without mentioning it
100mbps for $37.50
I'll take it for another year
Saves me the hassle of switching to fido because they'd have to lay a new cable and install etc.

Also got the same 12 month extension at $37.50 a month for 100mbps. Seems to be Virgin's best offer for those renewing.
