The $100 gift card promised during Black Friday promo...

During the Black Friday internet promo there was a $100 gift card promo for signups between Nov 28 to Dec 3. I signed up on Dec 2nd. I was also told by rep on the phone I will get a $100 gift card if I stay for at least a month. The gift card website says wait 21 days after signup. It's way past that now I have 2nd bill and the gift card status still says "pending, last updated 2019-12-02". Why? When will I receive it? Thanks.

Same thing here, no card, and no update.

 

Activated 150u on Dec 3, registered on the 5th. Says wait 21days and we are now at day 65 with no card, or confirmation. Smells fishy.

 

Went on live chat, they took a look and confirmed I qualified, said needs to be escallated - then I should see it within 12-13days, so we will see.

Hey @usernamechanged

 

Thank you for the details! As long as you signed up with an eligible Home Internet package, you should have received it though. To clarify, the $100 MasterCard gift card was offered on new activations, with the the following packages, while supplies lasted:

 

  • Fido Home Internet 75 Unlimited
  • Fido Home Internet 150 Unlimited

If you did sign up for one of these plans, you would have received an email invitation within 21 to complete the registration on myfidopromotions.com. Did you complete the registration?

 

It's also good to know that customers have 30 days once their services were installed to register. After the 30 days, they are no longer eligible for the promotion.

Hi, I was told by phone rep I would receive an email, but like many others, the email never came. So I just registered on the promotion website manually. But the status never changed from "pending" after that. I signed up for the 150u internet.

Had you checked your junk email folder for the invitation?

 

I'll send you a PM shortly so we can look into this with you. Keep an eye out.

Hi @usernamechanged 

 

Did you successfully have this sorted out?

 

Since you registered manually on the promo site on Dec 2 that's within the 30 days so you are eligible right?

 

Hope you get it soon✌️Cheers!
