Similar happened with my 40/6GB, it's not medium eligible anymore online. I read somewhere they said to call in and they will put a note and you can still take a tab.
See post #4 in this thread. Hopefully it helps.

Sad to see Koodo raising plan prices. For everybody including those with migration plans. It's not right. Wish we had more answers. Less sales on hardware this year also. The churners from last March and Boxing day may have taken enough of a toll. Rather than raise plan prices or ruin incentives on phones, wish they would limit phone purchases to eliminate those churners. Or eliminate the loophole. With these rate plans I cannot see anyone not buying and cancelling. Even those that do not know about RFD. Simple math, Koodo is getting pretty darn expensive.

Doesn't affect me much at the moment aside from my friends no longer can get phones through me easily, lol. My 3 year old BlackBerry is still churning along, and I can always fallback to my Essential.

I only had a quick look but I saw at Walmart that with Koodo they are now handing out $150 gift cards.

Part of the reason why I keep my Koodo line active also. For once a year or two phone upgrades. With Public Mobile this is starting to become a waste of money though (to keep an active line on Koodo). If customers know of Lucky, Chatr and Public mobile the plan prices have been trending down. For $25 or less for unlimited everything and 1GB of data, never have seen anything close to that price wise. To my knowledge. Zoomer is not bad either but you are tied to a contract on the loyalty $36 plan. Some RFD members are hoping to see 2-3-4GB plans at the $30 price point. Let's see what the above 3 carriers do next with Freedom improving their service somewhat (coverage wise) and pricing. See if that competition helps push prices down.

Can anyone confirm the $150GC through Walmart? If so will add to the OP. I'm assuming it's for new customers only.

thanks guys, just paid off my Galaxy s9. Got the 2xl on tab medium, for $0. Was able to keep my wife's 4gb/$55 a month plan. Don't even need a phone but for $15 a month or $360 it is worth it for a backup!

Why would one want to purchase a sim card vs calling in to cancel?

Is there a reason I am getting 2 P2P credits of $15 twice. Not that I am complaining, but is it a billing screw up and I got lucky or it is intentional and I am supposed to get $30 credit?

To avoid having to talk to someone and potentially being interrogated on why your cancelling. Once you port your Koodo number over to another service provider the cancellation is immediate.

Yeah and the current min $55 plan is crap too.
What makes me mad is people in Ottawa or Quebec can get tab large eligibility on a $49/6GB plan!

Because one would feel more ethical, and it would port out automatically, and canceling the account automatically, no CSRs needed.

Also sometimes it takes an hour just to get through to someone just to cancel.

And lastly I think my account/name would have a lesser chance of being flagged by a computer (porting out) than a human (calling in to cancel) in case I wanted to do this again in the future.

This is only just my theory

You must be joking using the word ethical when discussing Canadian carriers. I don't think anything customers can do to them can trump what they do to us. How one decides to cancel is merely a personal preference, nothing more. No need for deep analysis.
