It is now more than a month since the LG G5 was officially introduced in Canada. However, the device has already begun receiving discounts, and so is its recently released competitor – Samsung Galaxy S7.
The first modular smartphone from LG, the G5 is the company’s 2016 flagship and the fact that it is available for a reduced fee only a month into its life should be a huge opportunity to grab yourself this device as soon as possible. The LG G5 is currently available across the country via select network operators, among them Bell, Telus, and Videotron.
The discounts on LG G5 started showing up about a week ago when $100 was slashed from the usual amount for any person who bought the phone on a two-year contract via any of Bell, Telus, SaskTel or MTS. Normally, the handset is valued at $299.99 on a similar contract, but with this promotion, it means the flagship now costs just $199.99.
There is a catch
As usual with such promo deals, this one is available for a limited time. In addition, there are some caveats along the way.
For starters, Bell, for instance, demands that one must first of all trade-in another handset in order to take advantage of this deal. Another thing potential buyers need to note is that the deal is only available at “participating stores” with respect to Telus, Bell, SaskTel, and MTS. You must also be the legal owner of the phone being traded in and one should have attained the age of 18.
There is no room for trading in more than one phone and the $100 rebate will be applicable at the time of purchasing. The trade-in also takes into account all taxes before being applied. It gets even better for the LG G5 as far as other Canadian carriers are concerned. Those using Videotron can grab a new G5 handset for $179, Wind Mobile users can get it for $149 while Eastlink users require $0 to get a new LG G5.
For those chasing the pricier Samsung Galaxy S7, there is even a better deal for you. Bell is offering a similar rebate for those wishing to get a new Galaxy S7, but this one involves a discount of $125. Normally, the phone costs $399.99 on a two-year contract.
