I dont see these Data prices on Virgins website. Where do you see this. Also i HIGHLY doubt they are giving 5GB for 5$ as thats INSANELY cheap.

RFD? as in Red Flag Deals? I dont think Koodo will be. Koodo only matches deals usually when the deal is coming directly from the source (Virgin/Fido). Sorry

@Y.F.L. The internet is not always right. Virgin does not offer anything like that. Guaranteed. :-)

I found the RFD forum link for it. It appears to be strictly a retention offer for current Virgin customers only and you must speak to the retention department. It appears to have been updated to state that new lines cannot receive this offer. You have to have opened a line BEFORE it started. People are saying they have received it but again, current Virgin subs only and you must call in to rentenions, assuming it's true. I'm guessing it's one of those sweeten the pot deals for people who call in to cancel if it's a data thing that's making them leave and it spread and now everyone knows it exists type things.

Yeah, as I mentioned they closed it down.....even if it was available I guess every Virgin customer should call and simply threaten to leave....they seem to care about those few that complain while the rest that had been with them get nothing. Doesn't seem fair. :-(

That didn't take long at all! Definitely not fair :/ I understand the appeal of incentives for being longer term customers but when it's just in the case of only if you're leaving, not the same at all.
