Bestbuy: Koodo Samsung Galaxy J3 0$ upfront with Small Tab, 300$ Bonus gift card on new activations
Option 1: 240$ upfront with no tab *best if trading in*
Option 2: 0$ upfront, 240$ on small tab *best if not trading in*
Trade-in credits can only be applied to the upfront balance. Bestbuy might allow trading in of devices other than just mobile phones such as laptops, tablets, etc.. (YMMV on trade-in values).
Double referral credits are still available. 50$ bill credit for both the customer making the referral as well as the new customer signing up. Yes, you can receive both. New customers must remain for at least 3 months to keep the referral bonus. With double referral bonus I see no reason to terminate before 3 months.
After sign-up call to place phone on 3 month seasonal hold (also YMMV), this ensures you will receive the referral credit(s) as well as the sales agent receiving their commission. After 3 months cancel outright and pay off any existing tab balance.
Personally, I would PM at RCSS as I consider PC Points the same as cash for me.
Final Pricing should be something like this:
Option 1: Best with trade In
Upfront cost: 240$ (device – no tab) + 10 sim card – trade in value (50$) * HST = 200*1.13 = 226$
Bonus: 300$ gift card
3 Month cost = 15$/month with seasonal hold – 50$ referral credit (100$ if self-referring) = no cost, possibly 5$ or 55$ account credit (to be confirmed)
Summary Option 1: 300 (gift card) – 226 (cash) = Net 74$ in pocket after 3 month seasonal hold. Possibly an additional 55$ account credit. Can anyone confirm if a credit would exist on account????
Option #2: No trade in
Upfront cost = 0$
Bonus: 300$ gift card
3 Month cost = 240$ tab balance + 15$/month with seasonal hold – 50$ referral credit (100$ if self-referring) * HST = 265.55 (209.05 if self-referring). Cost could also be reduced further by changing phone number to Alberta and reducing sales tax before paying off tab balance).
Summary Option 2: 300 (gift card upfront) – 265.55 (cash over three months) = Net 34.45$ in pocket after 3 month seasonal hold (90.95$ if self-referring).
