GhaladReam, I have found now you need to actually make the call to the competitor and make the appointment to transfer then they will offer you the best deal. This year when doing it I would have switched if the Eastlink guy would have attempted to do the install, he could not be bothered to knock on the door apparently. Bell called the day of the appointment and offered their deal, I found out the guy was supposedly here to install when I called to cancel the switch over.

Unable to edit? Oh, you’re now a ‘rookie’ like the rest of us, apparently. Should make for some garbled entries in the days ahead.

Called them a couple days ago.. told them to cancel the TV service as we don't use it at all anymore. They gave me a $55/m credit for 24 months instead. Ended up being cheaper than just paying for internet/phone alone.

Are you getting anything special with regards to channels, LD, etc?

Nope..nothing extra.

I've trimmed all the fat off the services over the past couple years... HBO pkg, two receivers. Their prices just keep going up and up as my valuation of the TV service goes down and down. I basically don't see any value in the tv service at all now...I don't use it. Which is why I called them to cancel it in the first place.

Currently on Fibe 100 with a $25/month discount. On the BA website for NS, currently advertised as $30 per month discount for new subs. Tried calling / FB messaging to get this deal. They will absolutely not budge on providing the $30 new sub discount to me. I tried multiple times, even spoke to retentions.

I've never been late paying a bill, never been in arrears. Getting pretty sick of Bell's bullshit TBH.

Yep.. there is zero loyalty benefit. You have to complain/threaten to leave in hopes they'll do anything. Regular price is just too high imho.

As I said a page or two back, speaking with them does not good anymore you need to make the appointment to have it switched then they will do something for you. If the Eastlink installer had not been so lazy and knocked on the door in January this year then I would be with them now. But he did not and Bell called later that day to make me an offer. $149.95 is my pretax rate, I get all the phone features, fibre 500 with some theme packs for channels, I forget which ones I never use it and the threw in the movies for free with the second receiver too..

Fibe Bundle $214.95
Simply the World $0.00
Credit Ending January 2022 -$65.00
Total Bundle charges $149.95
Plus HST $22.49

TV STARZ Credit Ending January 2022 -$5.00
TV Crave + Movies + HBO Credit Ending January 2022 -$20.00
TV Receivers (1St Receiver Included) 2 @ $8.00 $8.00
TV Receiver Credit Ending January 2022 -$8.00
Crave + Movies + HBO $20.00
STARZ $5.00
Total Digital TV charges $0.00

Edit: And now I see it lacking they have not tried to scam me for their normal $10 increase in the bill yet at this time.
