using fidodollars to buy an iPhone without a contract

I want to use my fido dollars towards paying the full price of an iphone 4. I know there are limitations to buying a smartphone using fidodollars as stated by the terms and conditions:


Description. The Fido RewardsTM program (“Fido Rewards”) is a program offered by Fido Solutions, operated by Rogers Communications Partnership (“Fido”) that allows participants to accumulate FidoDollarsTM and redeem them toward the purchase of Fido phones (other than smartphones, unless a participant subscribes to a Data option with a commitment period or to prepaid service), 

 

It says I can redeem my dollars towards the purchase of a smartphone if I suscribe to a prepaid service - prepaid services don't have a commitment period.

 

So can I to use my fidodollars to purchase an iphone at full price, without a commitment period, but to a prepaid service, as it says in the terms and conditions?

If I already have an exisiting Data plan, would I still be able to redeem my FIDO dollars to purchase the iPhone?

Hello anthony_ryan,

 

It will certainly be possible to do so as long as you have a 3 year term on your data option.

 

I hope that this answers your request :smileyhappy:

further to your last reply, am i right to assume that with the existing data option, the cost of an iphone would also be the full price cost?

Re: using fidodollars to buy an iPhone without a contract

Hello mzztee,

If you are purchasing the iPhone with a prepaid service, you will be charged the full price for the phone plus taxes minus the FidoDollars.

If you are on a monthly service and currently are not eligible for an agreement renewal, you will be charged the full price for the phone plus taxes minus the FidoDollars.

If you are on a monthly service, you currently are eligible for an agreement renewal, are renewing for three years and you have/are planning on having a data option with a three year term, you could have the iPhone 4 16 GB at $159 and the 32 GB at $269, plus taxes, minus your FidoDollars.

I hope this helps!
