45$ = Current Plan with my own phone
90$ = Same benefits plan with a new Smartphone
I would have to pay 50$ more per month after taxes.
That is 600$ a year for 2 years totaling to 1200$
Ontop of that I need to pay 299 for the smart phone up front.
That is 1500$ total.
A new apple iPhone 6s costs 900.
Essentially I have to spend 600$ more to redeem my 180 fido dollars which is obviously not worth it what so ever.
I thought, maybe I can get my self a sweet headset or some accessory with my fido dollars? Nope
Perhaps pay part of my bill? Nope
So essentially me staying with fido to be able to use my Fido dollars some day was for nothing, and now they expire on June 6th ...
Am i able to redeem my 180$ fido dollars for a cheap brand new phone which I can then try to resell?

Hey @IcyPhoenix and thank you for using the Community.
To find your options to use your FidoDOLLARS, you can visit the gerneal store here.
You can definitely use your FidoDOLLARS towards one of our available phones.
If you can sell it afterwards, that would be extra money for you
Hope this helps.
Of course here, if you decide to use them on the Iphone 5s that is now in promotion at $0 on a 2 year agreement, the FidoDOLLARS can't be used.
However, you can still use it on a different phone with a higher price.
You would still be saving $188.38 on a new device, from what I see on your screenshot.
I am looking at the 6s
Which is 300$ upfront and I have to up my plan to a max plan which is 50$ more a month than what I pay now. Over 2 years that 50$ a month = 1200$ + the 300$ upfront. Thats 1500$ vs flat out buying the iPhone froom Apple unlocked for 900$.
Even if I spend my 180$ fido dollars, I still end up paying 420 more than if I buy it from apple and keep my bring your own phone plan
I get it.
So changing your plan would not be an option for you.
You mentionned the option for buying the phone full price at Apple.
Would buying the phone full price through Fido using your FidoDOLLARS be a better option for you then?
Are you are really looking to renew your agreement.
Let me know.
