LG G4 for $3.36 The Mobile Shop / Koodo / All Provinces Except QC

This promotion can change anytime...
Assumptions:
  • You're in ON or BC (13% HST), could vary slightly in other provinces
  • You switch to an AB number as soon as possible post-activation (unless you're already in AB)
  • You go on a seasonal hold for 2nd and 3rd billing cycle for the 90 day run (save more by going on seasonal hold sooner)
Here's the math:
  • (30.40+15.40+15.40)*1.05 = $64.26 (base plan before tab, tax-in)
  • $11.30 (first tab installment, taxed at your ON or BC number)
  • $11.30 (sim card, same tax deal)
  • 230*1.05 (AB sales tax)=$241.50
  • -$50 refer a friend
  • -$275 in PC points (200k base plus 75k today)
If you already have a Koodo line and refer yourself, you'll get both $50 credits, so Koodo will pay you to take the phone.

Pay a bit more if you're super lazy and don't switch to an AB number or go on seasonal hold.

I am not responsible for your bootloops.

PC points will fluctuate on this phone throughout the month. Was at 250k total points last Tuesday. Sounds like the deal is today only, but there will be deals throughout the month.

Edit: if Koodo won't let you change your number to an AB number (say you have residency in SK/MB/QC), then you can port in an AB number (or if you're in SK, YMMV, but you could switch to a Lloydminister SK number for AB sales tax), then you can port one in. $5 for a Virgin sim card at any Virgin retailer, or $1 on ebay. Takes a couple minutes to port a Virgin prepaid number to Koodo.

The short answer is no. But if it's a Gmail, add a '+1' before the '@' and it'll work. If you plan on taking advantage of Koodo refer a friend more than once, I recommend using a Gmail account.

in addition to what titan has mentioned, you can always create a new email address for this ...
the key is that you have to do a fresh referral from yr existing koodo account ...

i just grabbed 2 more of these g4's ... was given even more pc pts than OP has suggested ...
not sure if my lucky star strikes or what ... i was able to get AB # plus $28 plan for these 2 ...

Was it a store-specific promo? A personalized offer? A deal you made with the kiosk? How'd you score the extra points?

actually, even the TMS guy was surprised ...
it was auto-awarded by the system i think ... since it is a separate line item in the bos ...

i was not expecting them ... so it was really great deal for me ...
thanks to you ... i got such a great deal today ... Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Sounds like a personalized offer, perhaps randomly generated. You got lucky. It's rare to exceed 300k on a phone at TMS.

My TMS CSR said the extra 50k pc points were computer error. TMS head office fixed the computer error when I activate my plan tonight. I got only 275k pc points.
I was able to paid down my tab by $80 redeeming 80k pc points already in my account before activation. It is nice to use points other than paying for grocery

I have about 280k pc points now. I will be able to get another phone with $10 tab balance if there is another similar Koodo deals in the near future before my wife redeems these points.

Did you used the pc points from the first activation to pay down the tab for the second activation?
You need to leave $10 tab in your account in order get the $160 activation bonus from the phone price of $400
[$400 - $160 activation bonus = $240 tab]
If you don't leave $10 in the tab, you will be paying $400 for the phone. This is Koodo's crazy rule.

i am not 100% sure ...
i just looked at the bos and the activation bonus of $160 is there and my tab is $240 ... so i guess i am not paying $400 for the phone ... right?
