Not sure how you're getting $40 for iPhone 6. In Ontario, I'm calculating closer to $85 not including one day of service.

EDIT: I see first post has been updated.

iPhone SE is a pretty decent deal.

$325 gift card + $50 trade in

How much does this go on Kijiji for? iPhone 6 bnib sells for $300. If you can still get $280-300 for SE, slightly better profit
Haha, I saw this one as well. This is a pretty good deal IMO for an iphone SE.
The rest of the phones are still too expensive for my frugal self....

The other one I would recommend would be the mid-range LG Q6 on a small tab.
It's $0 on a small tab, $200 GC + $50 Trade in. The closest to "free" for this phone.
Thank you RFD community for helping me with spending money, I feel so poor now!

Is there an ongoing thread or good summary on best story/method to sign then cancel? Im happy with my current provider but I would def get s9+ for around 600 if I could...

I did this for my bro a couple months ago pretty painlessly but it felt wrong "screwing" wow mobile.

Is it best to sign up and keep service active for 3 months?

Or is the view that these offers are gonna dry up soon due to ppl misusing them so get in while you can?

Lastly, if you sign up for a tab large plan but then wanna switch can u do so and just pay off the tab?

Call Koodo and ask to put it on a seasonal hold for 3 months, and then cancel.

If you get a tab large and switch down to a different tab or switch to mtm you can easily just pay off the tab. If it’s a new account typically they’ll want you to be with them for 3 months before being able to pay off the tab and switch down but customer service might be willing to do it.

Yes but what I am saying if you look at the terms. https://galaxyupgrade.ca/terms-of-service/

Either you:
1) Instead of $50 trade in credit at Wow you get $100 minimum if trading towards an S9/S9+/Note 8, so more savings
or
2) You get $50 trade in credit at Wow AND you get $100 minimum if trading another seprate device towards an S9/S9+/Note 8

Someone will need to get clarification...
so it's cheaper to get the Koodo phone from where, if not at wow mobile?

the link says: $150 + Trade-in value instant credit after pre-order (Mar 16 - June 7, 2018) only

No. It's $0 upfront for a medium tab and there's a $325 Gift Card, and a $50 trade in credit.
If you do this way, the credit will be for "instore merchandise".

I would go $120 upfront for the small tab and the $325 Gift Card, plus $50 trade in credit.
You can use the trade in credit on the upfront cost instead! Yay!

Total: $120-$50, +$30 for activation add the $240 for tab + 1.13 tax, . Lastly, subtract $325 in Gift Card...
Example price of doing this with Same day cancel, you pay $384-$325=$59 for it!

Hmmm... now that i read this closely..

What if you can trade in 2 turd turd phones... one at wow kiosk for 150 and another online at galaxyupgrade.ca? Effectively bringing the price of s9+ to under 500 which goes from hot to scorching!
Ill try it tomorrow and share results

Doesn't the terms say if you buy in-store you will get an instant credit. And its only if you buy online, you will get the credit through galaxyupgrade.ca

If you scroll down the table where it says wow, it says online = 100 dollar cheque. But you cant buy shit online from wow only in store. So its gotta mean you buy instore but claim trade in online right?

But doesn't say online is for those stores who have no trade-in program. And wow does have a trade in program.

Either way, i wish you luck.

So for people like me who never had a plan with Koodo before, I heard there's a credit check for Tab Large.
If I'm getting S8, wouldn't it be better to go for Tab Medium for a tad more? Here's what I found

200 Outright
360 Tab
30 Activation
-50 Trade in ( going toward the device since $200 outright, and NOT accessory)
-150 GC
=$390

compared to
0 Outright
504 Tab
30 Activation
0 Trade-in ( well technically it's -50 but it's only for instore overpriced accessories at Wow since device is $0)
-150 GC
= $384

I just did the deal and Wow is giving out like $300 in credit. Basically, if you trade in any phone you get $150 towards and S9/S9+ AND you get for this weekend only another $150 in gift cards. I traded in an old Sony Ericsson flip phone for $150. There may not be stock tomorrow as they ran out of S9's at 2 locations near me and I had to go a little out of my way to another location. The promo is right here:

https://www.wowmobile.ca/en/promos/

$200 upfront for Large Tab
-$150 trade-in
-$150 gift cards
remaining Tab balance is $504

Now I wonder if you can still claim the mail in trade-in(I doubt it). https://galaxyupgrade.ca

So roughly $350-$400 for a new S9 depending on what you want to do(I may try for Koodo referral credits/seasonal hold too). Rest of the info is in the S8 thread: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/wowmobi ... #p29320910
