I"m worried that by getting the price protection (ie $25 credit) BB might screw us out of the referral rewards. Also, since I cancelled my Koodo account already, will BB give me a hassle ?

I received a bill from Koodo to pay off the tab. If I return the phone for a full refund, what happens to my koodo tab ?

We were just discussing this in the other post - and I was guessing the price of S2X will go much lower between now and Boxing day...I guess I was right ;-) Now the question is...do we buy at this price or do we weight for further discount. By the way I am sure RCSS will be matching this BB deal.
They're after market share and want to report good numbers in Jan/Feb. This could be fun. PC is being very aggressive. More PC points, GCs (and Koodo referrals).

I got my referral reward.. even though I cancelled Koodo account. They should still do a PM if you still have the receipt and phone (don't think they will check with Koodo if your acct is still active)

website says they have a 30 day price protection, 14 just for returns or exchange.
Typically price protection matches return (sometimes it's shorter than return). It would be unusual for something to have price protection when they know you can't return it. Don't know how that relates to cell phones.

That said, it wouldn't hurt to ask I guess.

Though... this is from http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/help/article/hc1001.aspx
2012 Holiday Update

The Lowest Price Guarantee has been extended!

If you’ve purchased an item on or after November 2nd, you’ll be able to apply for a price adjustment right up until January 6th instead of the regular 30-day limit.

You'll probably find the BB flyer (which they call an ad, because they're American) on their site late Wednesday night, since the sale starts Thursday AM.



Are you asking specifically about this deal, or are you already a prepaid member? For this deal, you don't sign up for prepaid you sign up for monthly and then call to cancel right away. You end up paying about 5 days.

There's another thread on the current deal ($100-$100GC+$150Tab) here, you probably don't need to wade through it all but I did try to keep the important stuff in post #1: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/nov23-de ... b-1261830/

I'm assuming it's similar to Virgin? I cancel the day of, pay the $150 Supertab and then be done with it? They wouldn't charge me the first one, correct?

How many phones am I allowed to have, do they limit like Virgin?

The receipt specifically says 14 days (return/exchange) for cell phone and the holiday return extension does not apply.

I will try this weekend because I price protected a laptop I bought within the 14-30 day window a couple months back.

You guys think it will be possible to get this price protected? I will be on my 3rd week this Friday but the website says they have a 30 day price protection, 14 just for returns or exchange.

I'm not sure how it works for cell phones/contracts

If I return the entire phone, what happens to my Koodo Tab of $150. I've already cancelled the Koodo service, so they have sent me the invoice to pay $170 already. Do I still pay it, even if I return the phone to BestBuy ?

The Ace IIx and the HTC One V are both going to be $0 with $100GC + tab.

Haven't been following these phones so don't know if that's a good deal or not.

Not a bad deal. Paying $50 for the phone each, assuming the tab is $150. I'm going to try and get 2 tomorrow for my parents :D

The Ace IIx is also the same price for Virgin if you wish to go with VM

Also add Blackberry Curve 9320 to the mix
