Rogers/Fido, Virgin Mobile Offer $120 Credit for BYOD Activations

Earlier today we told you about Fido’s Boxing Day deal, which is offering a $60/month unlimited Canada-wide calling plan with 6GB data.

If you aren’t going to jump on that plan, Rogers, Fido and Virgin Mobile are offering activation credits for new BYOD (bring your own device) activations.

Fido says their offer is good until December 31, 2016, and will come with a one-time $15 “Transaction Fee”. If you bring your own unlocked phone to Fido to activate, you can get a $10 credit “on or before your third invoice” for the next 12 months, while your account remains active. This credit promo cannot be stacked with the Fido Boxing Day deal plan.

Virgin Mobile is also offering the same deal as well and some RFD users are saying talking to the Retentions department can get this deal for existing customers too:

Also, according to RFD, Rogers is offering something similar, with new BYOD activations on a Share Everything No Tab Plans, getting $20 off per month, for six months. Small Business Share Everything Plans are eligible.

We aren’t seeing a similar promo being offered by Koodo, yet—but we would think they would match it shortly, knowing how the ‘Big 3’ make plan changes in unison.
