They're out of S9s at Scarborough town center by the way

For a complete noob like me, can someone point me towards a guide or what I have to do to cancel? Is there tax on the 504 Large Tab? I remember people saying they switch to Alberta to get cheaper tax. Should I cancel the same day or what?

This, what's the best way to cancel. Having a momentary panic seeing clawback forums... Can my reason be" I want to cancel case and point "?

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
So you actually paid 0 up front with $100 wow gift card left, and need to pay $504 koodo tab, right?
Wondering if tab medium would work so you can use all the gift card.

So I assume this only works for new customers?

If so, what about, say, Koodo prepaid customers who want to move onto monthly plans? That's me, and I want to get an S9 for a family member who's already with Koodo (the 10GB plan).

Also, how is the trade-in credit calculated? Will I get $150 for my old Nexus 4? Do I have to show a receipt? Does the device have to be bought in Canada? The last time I traded a phone in (at Fido) the rep said the phone had to be in working condition without any scratches or cracks. I want to trade an LG phone in but the LG has a crack in the lens... the crack is only cosmetic though. The camera takes pictures just fine without any blurriness or weird artifacts.

I have a couple of old phones I can trade in but I bought them overseas.

EDIT: Where is OP getting the $240 tab for the A8? I see $270 on Koodo's website.

that's right, for example the A8

- $120 + tax initially
- $50 trade in credit, goes on subtotal
- becomes $70 * tax = $79.10

- tab + activation (240+30) = $270 * 1.13 = $305.1


total cost = $79.10 + $305.10 - $150 GC
= $234.20 out of pocket cost, + 1 day of prorated service assuming you cancel service same day.
OP's table shows $190 as the final cost...? And why does the $50 trade-in become $70?

Yep $100 left on gift card(or $94 left b/c of tax) and paid $0 upfront.

Medium tab and Small Tab should work fine too. I just chose the Large Tab and will use the rest of the gift card later when I cancel the line to pay the rest of the $504.

I doubt koodo would let you use wow gift card to pay for the tab balance.

My excuse when I called Koodo to cancel was that my parents wanted me on their family plan with another provider. They were satisfied and it sounded like they've accepted the fact a lot of people are doing this.

I have a stupid question. If I already have a Koodo account as a result of signing up/cancelling (not through WowMobile) a long time ago, but it has no lines on it anymore, will a credit check still be done again? Or can I just add a new line with Wow and be on my way with the phone?

So for the s9+ we get 330 + tax - 150-150 and then remaining tab we pay off when we cancel? So essentially $73 up front and remaining on tab?

They will when you cancel and you pay in Self-Serve once you get the final bill. Nothing they can do to stop that. I have done that many times.

A credit check will be performed since you don't have a line with them.

Called local WOW and they would only offer 150GC + 50 trade it. Anyone have luck with 150 trade in AND 150 gift card?

This looks great. I also have a question.

I'm in Quebec and I actually want to get a phone plan so I might be their only customer from RFD not looking to screw WOW over :)
I want the 35$ for 2 GB that is available at Fido and Koodo.

It appears that this plan is only available at koodo on a "medium" tab or lower ( the large tab requires taking a bigger plan).

What is the best sub 200$ phone in this case?
cheers



edit: I did the math and the S9 on the medium tab is 26$ more expensive (+ taxes) than on the large tab Not a big difference, but tthe S8 is 56$+taxes more expensive on the medium tab than on the large tab.

S9 : 370$ cash + 360$ medium tab + 30$ activation - 150$ trade in = 610$+taxes - 150$ GC. (vs 584$+taxes - 150$ GC on large tab, a 26$ rebate on large tab)
S8: 200$ cash + 360$ medium tab + 30$ activation - 50$ trade in = 540$+taxes - 150$ GC (vs 484$+taxes - 150 GC on large tab, a 56$ rebate on large tab)
