[Virgin Mobile] [YMMV] [ON] [QC] 8GB @ $45/mo BYOD plan with Virgin home internet

I could try asking and then share more details, but my landlord—who is moving to a new house—applied for a new Virgin home internet connection the other day. Today, he received a pretty neat Virgin mobile offer. The letter clearly reads that this "value-packed phone plan (promo code included)" has been offered because he has availed their broadband internet services. Seems to be postpaid and not PAYG.

8GB (LTE) data, unlimited minutes @ $45/month, BYOD. The fine print riiiiight at the end reads this is available to new Virgin Mobile members in ON and QC. It also adds that additional data will be charged $10/100MB up to $800 MB and 15¢/MB thereafter.

I couldn't find this plan on their website; so, I think this is a targeted offer. A google search suggests that this could be an out-of-province plan. Thought I'd put this out here in case anyone wants to try bargaining with Virgin CA.

Cheers all, stay safe and well.

PS: First "deal"-ish post; forgive any oversight (I think I have correctly categorised/framed the topic).

In todays day an age of unlimited data plans.

Id much rather a 5gb unlimited plan around 50$ that I dont have to worry about then being dinged 50$ because I was watching youtube and forgot to switch my mobile data.

The fact you also have to be a subscriber to other over priced services to qualify for this deal makes this ice cold.

Link/source??
Part of the art of working in customer service, at any company, is the ability to invent plausible explanations for unexpected outcomes. An algorithm makes the decision. The agent does not necessarily know why.

Wow, anyone else thinks Virgin is just hoping you goof up, just once?

I got the same offer in the mail because I have had home internet with them since December.

I believe the promo code is unique.

1. $45 for 8GB, unlimited minutes. QC and ON only.

2. Deal ends June 30th.

3. $40 connection fee waived.

Mail. Nothing electronic was sent to me.

Debating jumping on this. I have 13GB $53 all-in at Freedom right now but data is useless when I drop calls and I only get 1GB in Montreal.

You need to be an existing Virgin home internet customer to get the $45 price on the mobile plan.

Received it in the post; nothing online. The promo code, as explained by @Said212, is unique. You could call customer service and ask if you qualify (assuming you do have their home internet services).

Sure, I'll ask the landlord to snap and share.

Same for me. Got it in the mail today. Gave it to a family member to redeem if they wanted. Comes with a sim card too in the letter.

It uses the same network as bell so it's as good and reliable as Bell. I'm not bandwidth expert so don't go quoting me. I have had good experiences with their customer service for troubleshooting too.

Confirmed! I received a letter in the mail with a SIM card with the same offer. I am in Ontario and I have home internet with Virgin. I will be switching my cell service tomorrow from Rogers to Virgin!

Based on what other folks on RFD have mentioned, apparently Fido has weaker service & weak service in general.

Can't speak for Virgin Mobile but since they're run by Bell, and if they're anything like Bell, then their customer service might be a nightmare to deal with. I've personally found Bell in general to be quite aggressive, and nickel & dime you as much as they can get away with, as well as issues with raising their prices after a while too. Their signal service is quite though. Never really had problems with signal strength with them, when outside before.
8/10 times I just decide I don't need to buy & find a way to make do without. (Necessity is the mother of invention)

It has been for me. My bedroom PlayStation doesn't get a strong signal but that might be the concrete walls in the apartment so I'm using an ethernet cable. Otherwise, very steady.
