[BC] Shaw friends?

Noticed this feature on my account page (I get internet,phone,TV) and was wondering if their is a no catches loyalty program or if I am entering into some kind of deal that requires me to hold onto services for 3000 years,etc.

tl;dr any disincentives?

the distintive ring and 50gb/month bonus seem ... okay if free.

I signed up for the VOD credits

Not aware of any disadvantage yet.

I've found no strings. The only significant benefit, for me, is the concierge service. It usually provides me with a support person within 60 seconds. Massive improvement over phone support.

EDIT: Duh! AND the extra 50 gigs, of course.

I've heard you actually are legally required to be ShawSean's friend though. This means helping him move, picking him up at the airport, etc...

F that, that's too much commitment for me.
60 second wait on chat all in exchange for 3hr waits for the delayed flights. Hows that a good trade-off?
Only if ShawSean promises to call once he's already landed.

I can accept that.
