• Freedom Mobile's 100 GB Big Binge Bonus



    Here's a Black Friday deal I've not seen before... Starting today, if you sign up for service with Freedom Mobile—or upgrade your existing phone on a tab— they'll throw in a one-time data top-up of 100 GB.

    Both iPhone in Canada and Mobile Syrup are reporting that a "Big Gig" plan at $60/month or more is required, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Here's the fine print, copied and pasted directly from the footer of Freedom's site:

    Big Binge Bonus

    Offer is available for a limited time and is subject to change or cancellation without notice.

    Eligibility for a Big Binge Bonus during the promotion period is as follows:

    5 GB – New customers only: Activate a Pay Before service on a current in-market $40/month or higher rate plan.
    10 GB – New customers only: Activate a Pay After service on a current in-market $40-$49/month rate plan.
    15 GB – New customers: Activate a Pay After service on a current in-market $50-$59/month rate plan, or a Pay After service with MyTab on a current in-market $40-$49/month rate plan. Existing customers: Upgrade your phone with MyTab on a $40-49/month rate plan.
    30 GB – New customers: Activate a Pay After service on a current in-market $60/month or higher rate plan, or a Pay After service with MyTab on a current in-market $50-$59/month rate plan. Existing customers: Upgrade your phone with MyTab on a $50-59/month rate plan.
    100 GB – New customers: Activate a Pay After service with MyTab on a current in-market $60/month or higher rate plan. Existing customers: Upgrade your phone with MyTab on a $60/month or higher rate plan.

    New activations with MyTab and phone upgrades with MyTab require a 24 month services agreement. Your bonus data will only be used after you have used up all the fast LTE data in your rate plan each month and, once the total amount of bonus data is depleted, it will not be replenished. The bonus data will remain available on your account for as long as you remain an active customer in good standing on an Eligible Plan. If you upgrade your rate plan after receiving your bonus data, any remaining bonus data will continue to be available to use with your new rate plan, but you will not receive a new allocation of bonus data. If you downgrade your rate plan or cancel your MyTab, any remaining bonus data will be removed from your account.

      Also (not mentioned above) if you bring your own device Freedom will give you a 30GB topup (not as good as 100 but at least that way no Tab required)

      They tried to add it to my Promo Everywhere 50, but since my tab is over next year he couldn’t do it.

      These are the ways they'll wean us off what is arguably the best deal...

      Stay strong.

      If at first you don't succeed.......... So I called them back and spoke with Jessica. I said can you just clarify that I took a new hardware upgrade last week on mytab therefore shouldn't I receive the extra GB? It doesn't say I have to be on a specific plan on top just get a new phone on mytab. She said let me check and then said your correct it only says that so you can have the extra GB. Now my daughter going to university next year has 38GB to play with!!!! Yahoo

    You are right. There is no consistency in the pricing. What I did find out was that I had to go all the way to checkout before I saw an additional discount.
