Unable to gift 2GB mobile data perk. Trying to help a friend (referral code 22K5S)

I have an Internet plan that received a 2GB mobile data perk. When I tried to gift it to a friend who needed mobile data, it blocked at the last step and said that I needed a Fizz Plan (note: not mobile plan). I have a 'Fizz Plan' but was told that both sender and recipient needed a mobile plan.

My request to see where this is written is still outstanding a week later. Long after that 2GB perk is useless.

If anyone can gift a perk to the friend I was trying to help (referral code 22K5S) I and they would be very thankful. You can't gift data, but you can gift a perk if you have a mobile plan. :/

I've checked with several friends on Fizz who have Internet plans and/or Mobile plans. The 2GB mobile data perk was only given to those with *Internet* plans! Why give perks to people who can neither use them nor give them away? Not a great way to make your customers feel good. :(

    So that people would buy a mobile plan ?

    That's the common assumption, but if most people are like me and don't try to gift the perk until it's about to expire—because I don't need it myself and my friend needed the extra data—then it's too late to do anything about it.

    And I already have a mobile plan (in a separate account) and when I asked whether I could merge/transfer the phone plan to the same account, the answer I got was 'no'. That's not what others have suggested before, but it's what the agent said this time.

    In any case, the message says 'Fizz Plan' which I have. And they have not (yet) pointed to where this is stated in any terms of service. Rules are fine. Seemingly arbitrary undocumented rules are not.

    Perk is useless if you do not have an active phone plan I guess

    I can gift perks only from account that have phone data (so far).

    It's frustrating.

    And the question I submitted to customer service on the issue has been open for 10 days.

    Too much 'I guess' going around. Too little 'here is where it's written.'

    This question needs to be closed.

    It's not answered, but the perk expired last year.
