I activated the home Internet on Aug 21, yet still waiting to receive the email to choose the gift card.
Please be honest with your customers/employees when it comes to promotions. The gift card email was promised to be received within 4-6 weeks after activation. However, I was recently being told that after receiving the email, there will be another 4-6 weeks for the gift card to come. Seriously??? And none of the representatives were aware of this timeline at the time of installation. Everyone said after 4-6 weeks we will receive an email for the gift card.
I am just disappointed at this promotion as I not only experienced slow Internet sometimes at home (150mbps/15mbps), but will also miss the prime sale at Amazon because of the lengthy wait time. Also, it is quite unreasonable that it will take another long period for an e-gift card to get approved.
Welcome to the community!
It's true that you should receive the e-mail within up to 6 weeks of the date of your order confirmation.
Did you also check your Junk folder to make sure you didn't miss it?
Thank you Alice for bringing this issue a lot of people's attention. I know I'm not the only one and I won't be the last one to experience the exact same situation. My best friend and I both signed up for the 150u internet package on Sept 13. My friend already received the gift card email 3 days ago while I still haven't. I've waited patiently all along and checked every junk and spam inbox but just never received the email. Why? Had 3 different Fido reps help me and they all gave me different answers - problem not solved. Really wished Fido could be more precise and transparent with promotional offers and inform all customers the exact timeline and how to claim the offer (e.g. After 4 weeks or after receiving payment for the first month's bill, instead of saying vague stuff like "for up to 6 weeks of blah blah blah...." LAME!). So when customers do ask Fido reps for assistance, these reps should already know why and be given authority to release that email (upon further verification with customer to avoid scams) and solve the problem so customer do not feel like the ball is being kicked around and told to wait another X number of weeks. Thanks for looking into this matter again and I truly appreciate any help I can get not only for myself but for everyone else affected.
