If you’re in the market for a new phone or a mobile plan, getting a deal that goes that extra mile counts.
Most major cellphone service providers have a list of promotions they’re running at any given time. To be honest, some are simply a way of re-packaging services that are being sold already anyways, with a small twist. Others are actual deals that give you a free product or service.
Here is a list of some of the best current mobility promotions now on across Canada:
Bell has a plethora of deals on at once, at any given time. At the time of this writing, there are 18 promotional deals running, just in mobility sales.
Some of the most notable ones include the chance to get 2 months free of Press Reader when you activate a 2-year smartphone contract, the opportunity to get up to 50% off Klipsch audio products, beneficial trade-in credits and a complimentary Samsung Level Box Slim speaker with a 2-year Galaxy S8 contract .
Most of the promos at Telus involve things the company is already selling. For example, you can get an iPhone 7 for $0 when you sign a 2-year contract and trade a device in that’s worth a $200 trade-in credit.
So, really it’s a deal for you and for Telus. Maybe more so for Telus. You can also get a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone for $100 on select 2-year plans, and a $25 credit for each friend you refer.
Like Bell, of course Rogers has a mile-long list of “deals” . The ones that benefit the customer and don’t involve you trading something in include the chance to get a free Samsung Level Box Slim speaker ($149.99 value) and a bonus 6-month standard Netflix subscription (a $59.94 value) with the purchase of a Samsung S8 or S8+.
You can also get access to Spotify Premium for free for 6 months, a subscription to Texture (online magazines), and a free 2016-17 Season's Pass subscription to Rogers NHL GameCentre LIVE with select Share Everything plans.
Fido is the only company on this list with what seems like a truly creative deal . For every customer that switches to online billing up until May 31 st , 2017, Fido pledges to plant a tree at Tree Canada .
It’s also offering the same free Level Box Slim Speaker deal as the others when purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ phone, a Mastercard with cashback rewards, and a $25 credit for referring a friend.
Looks like everyone is doing the speaker thing. Virgin has the same deal when purchasing a Samsung S8 or S8+. For those who don’t know, Virgin also has a whole list of deals you can take part in as a “ Virgin Member ”, and some of them are pretty cool.
There are things like 20% off Starbucks iced beverages, the chance to win concert tickets and a VIP experience at the Calgary Stampede, as well as discounts on clothing, Canada’s Wonderland, the ROM and more.
Videotron has just a few deals on. If you order an LG G6 phone, you get a free LG PH3 wireless speaker .
Saskatchewan’s mobile provider is the only one that’s adding Apple Watches into the deal. For the moment, buy an iPhone with them and get 50% of the purchase of an Apple Watch. For a list of promotions, click here.
