Fido XTRA Contest - does anyone actually win, or is it just a scam?

Hello,

 

How come every time I enter one of Fido XTRA's "Contests" I never ever win anything, I never come even close, despite avid draw entering on my behalf? But what I do get, what I do notice, is every time I enter a draw/contest via my Fido app, I immediately start to get calls from random scam/fraud numbers.

 

I don't feel safe anymore to enter a Fido XTRA contest, I think they're fake and some sort of way to give out our client information, just like other contests we may enter in life that no one seems to win but all of our information ends up collected and into the wrong hands.


Thanks

Hey @jpicktell-ca

 

I'm sad to hear this is the impression you have.

We definitely have winners (see here) and rest assured that these have no impact on the spam calls you receive. 

Just like you we find them really annoying and we’re working to combat them and to implement steps to reduce them. Everyone can be impacted, not only Fido customers. 

 

We definitely hope you will consider participating in our contests in the future. Smiley

Same here, trying since months but never won

Don't give up, @vinodkt7! There's new winners all the time, check out @FidoAllan's post above for a list of all the winners.

Complete and utter sham... Simple random name generator for these so called winners...

 

Stopped long ago with these "contests"... At least google opinion pays you for your time... These contests just track Fido's advertising and how many sheeps they can get to click links

Hi @Unit4hire

 

Sorry to hear you feel this way. There is winners so it's definitely not a scam. Like any contest, not everyone wins but the trick is to give it a try. 

 

Cheers.
