Fido Giving 1GB Data Free to Select Customers in Latest Text Message Campaign

Fido is texting select customers notifying them of an offer for 1GB free data per month, for up to 9 months, according to those receiving the message on RFD. The text message reads:

Hi, it’s Fido: treat yourself-on us! For a limited time, get an extra 1GB of data per month at no extra cost, just like that! Reply YES by 20-Aug-17 to activate your gift for you. Enjoy it as long as you have your current plan or until your next phone upgrade for up to 6 months (non-transferable). Questions?

This targeted offer appears to be showing up for those who signed up for Fido’s $60 plan with 6GB from Boxing Day. The free 1GB data, once accepted, will start on the next billing cycle.

Last fall, Fido gave customers 1GB free data during their 20th anniversary promo, while in the past similar targeted ‘gifts’ have also appeared for customers as well.

Back in July, a new free data initiative called Data Bytes launched, which offers Pulse Plan customers 5 hours of free data per month.

Let us know if you received this text message and if you accepted it.
