I signed up when the whole 10GB promo was going on. I got an email saying I got a $50 referral instead of the regular $25. Ok, so I waited for it the few weeks to pass and get the $50.

Few weeks pass and I get an email saying I’m getting my $25 applied to my next bill....wtf?

I called them and asked what was going on. All they told me that I wasn’t supposed to get that $50, but $25. I have even an email saying I’m supposed to get $50. So nothing came of it.

Too bad there are no killer deals right now. How can I convince someone to sign up and stay for 3 months so I can get $50 out of it. This is bit of a meaningless deal at the moment.

Likewise, good timing for me... I've got a couple of my friends to bring over still.

Koodo phone deals and $50 referral credit is mutually exclusive. Koodo runs $50 credit only during the period (at the start of a new Telus financial quarter) without the phone deals.

This is the very scenario that I am afraid of. I have several $100 referrals still to be paid out. They better not convert those to $25.

I realize that which is why I am lamenting about the poor timing for this.

These deals are targeted for you. When you login, the phone prices will update mostly.

Usually, but not always.

I managed to snag a few $300 GC bonuses on Tab Small at Walmart during the last $50 referral promo in February. And a similar thing ($250 GC) back in October under another $50 promo, also at WM.

So, keep your eyes open. A month is a long time, deals are bound to turn up.

And don't forget about the return policy. You've got two weeks after you buy to re-rate if a deal does turn up. Sign up near the end of the promo period and that buys you time if better bonus deals show up right after the promo ends. Quite likely.

Koodo has bumped the referral again to $50 each.

No need to do it online

You cannot ask for referrals here, but just saying.

I recall there being some decent deals during mother's day last year, and it was a $50 referral promo on then. Soooo who knows what this year may bring?
