Fido Loyalty Offer: $45/4GB Plan in Response to Public Mobile, Freedom Mobile

Looks like have wireless tit-for-tat responses right now, involving Public Mobile (Telus), Freedom Mobile (Shaw) and now Fido (Rogers).

Freedom Mobile has a 2GB bonus data for select plans, starting at $40 per month with 4GB of his speed data and unlimited Canada-wide talk.

Public Mobile last week launched their own promo, targeting Freedom Mobile customers specifically, offering their $40/4GB unlimited province-wide calling plan ($38/month after Autopay).

Now, Fido retentions appears to have launched a promo plan, offering a $45/4GB plan with unlimited nationwide calling, in response to both Public Mobile and Freedom Mobile. This offer isn’t as good as the $40/4GB response Fido offered last year, but the $5 extra offers unlimited nationwide calling versus province-wide.

According to RFD, those calling Fido to cancel their service with the retentions department will be offered this loyalty plan, especially if you mention Public Mobile/Freedom Mobile as a reason for leaving. The plan is being offered for 24 months.

For Fido customers in Ontario, an equivalent BYOD plan would be $65 for 3GB of data, or $85 for 5GB of data (and $115 for 9GB). So $45 with 4GB of data appears to be a decent ‘deal’ compared to regular prices.

Let us know if you’re going to call in and try to get this loyalty offer from Fido.

    Now if Public Mobile would throw in unlimited Canada-wide calling 😉

    does this $45 fido plan include 1000 minutes of included international calling to the 8 countries like the $40 plan from last year?

    Called Fido to cancel unless they matched Videotron’s Flash sale that ended today. I got 8GB’s of data, unlimited nationwide calling, unlimited circle calling, international text, picture & video messages from Canada to Canadian, U.S. & international mobile numbers, caller ID, voicemail, call waiting,conference call & they gave me 2GB’s more of loyalty bonus data for 24 months for a total of 10GB all for $56.46 plus tax. I had to change my number to a Quebec area code number but I paid $89.60 for 6GB a month on a grandfathered plan that was basically the same as what I got in the new plan. SWEET!

  • Whoa nice plan!!

  • wongnog

    When will Rogers retentions match this plan?

  • 1His_Nibs1

    I have you to thank Gary. Your posts of what the carriers are offering was a tremendous help in using as a bargaining chip. Thanks

  • Glad to help! 🙂

    Sadly, we in BC can’t use Videotron leverage…

  • 1His_Nibs1

    Sadly I know all too well. I used to live in BC up until last year. I felt your pain too. It’s nice to be able to use that leverage after 16 years of suffering with a BC plan.

    I have the 34$ Black Friday deal from 2015 and the girlfriend has the 40$ equivalent plan from 2016 (pulse, Canada unlimited and 2 GB). I poked Fido via Facebook Messenger and they gave us 2 GB of bonus data per line for 24 months at no extra cost. I didn’t threaten to leave or anything – just said we were sometimes tight on data. This is a Québec plan.

  • Nice!

    If you mentioned Fido and Public Mobile in the context, Virgin Mobile will match it for $40/month with the same plan feature.

  • BenSenise

    i had an online chat and i called but nobody seems to know about this offer. what’s the secret??? Is this offer not valid for BC?

  • Nick S

    They won’t , I called in and they want $67 a month or $201 for 90 days. No retention department.

  • Chris Li (flameman235)

    How do I call fido retentions? Thanks!

  • Call the regular customer service line then ask to speak to retentions.

    I have been a Fido customer for many many many years, and have been on a $56 plan for the past 4-5 years with 2 gigabytes of data, full voicemail and visual voicemail, unlimited text, unlimited calling in Canada Etc. I called Fido retention-trained csr’s to request that they match Freedom’s $50 6gb plan, but the best retention plans they would offer me were: 1.) $50/month + 3 GB data, unlimited canada-wide calling + Unlimited text + lite voicemail, but on this plan I would only get 3 voicemail messages in my inbox instead of my current 35 and no visual voicemail, and would have to upgrade the new voicemail package by $5 to get these options back, making the actual plan $55 per month. I would also be giving up getting an additional gigabyte per month of data for $10 on overage, and instead would have to pay $5 for each 250 megabytes over. 2.) The second plan they offered was the $65 pulse plan normally with 3 GB of data, but they offered to add another 2 GB of data for 24 months for a total of 5GB over 2 years, but the data would drop back down to 3 gigabytes after 2 years and the price would remain at $65. I feel like neither of these offers are even close to the $50/6 GB or $59/8GB offerings from freedom, and I think they should be able to do better than this…am I taking crazy pills? Has anyone heard of our gotten any better retention offers in the 50 to $60 range for 6-8GB GB?
