Expanding the Fido Payment Program to make accessories more affordable
Fido is the first flanker brand wireless carrier to offer accessory financing, $0 down and 0% interest
Starting today, we’re expanding the Fido Payment Program, so Fido mobile customers can get accessories for $0 down, 0% interest and pay no taxes upfront. The financing options, which make devices and tablets more affordable for customers, will now include the latest accessories such as AirPods, Beats, cases, screen protectors, chargers, and more.
“We’re always looking for ways to offer more affordable options to our customers and deliver great value,” said Nancy Audette, Vice President and General Manager, Fido. “By expanding the Fido Payment Program to include our huge array of accessories, we’re providing a way for customers to get the latest and greatest accessories they want, without the upfront cost.”
Fido launched the Fido Payment Program in February 2020, and was the first flanker brand wireless carrier to offer this financing option to give customers more choice and flexibility, and make devices more affordable. With this expansion of the financing option, the monthly payment of accessories will be shown separately on the bill, and at the end of the financing term, the monthly payment will automatically drop off, making it easy for customers to understand their bill. Customers have the flexibility to pay their balance off in monthly payments over 24 months with the option to make lump sum payments on their balance at any time before the end of their financing term.
Customers can choose to finance a single item such as awesome headphones, or multiple items such as phone cases, screen protectors and chargers. Fido customers can finance accessories starting today by visiting a Fido retail store.
Today’s announcement builds on initiatives Fido has introduced to make products and services more accessible and affordable including our Data Overage Protection feature, Fido XTRA, 5 Extra Hours of Unlimited Data and our Certified Pre-Owned and Clearance device options.
