[Best Buy] Koodo Samsung J3 2016 - $0 on Small Tab ($240) with $300 Best Buy GC

Sure, this isn't an iPhone 6, Moto G Plus or any mid range phone, but Best Buy is selling the Samsung J3 2016 for $0 on a small Koodo Tab ($10 x 24 = $240) with a $300 GC.

If you don't care about a credit hit, you can basically get this phone for Free plus a bit of extra BB credit.

$240 + $15 SIM x 5% GST with an Alberta number = $267.75
You get back a $300 GC, so you are ahead by about $30 after cancelling.

There is no longer a 90 day clawback period on GC as per the other threads, so feel free to cancel right away.

New activations only.

They pay you to take the J3.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
1x 7-11 Speakout, 2x Koodo $28 plan, $0 FPL home phone
1x Zoomer $36 loyalty plan, 1x Zoomer loyalty family plan for 4 numbers $117($72 + 2x$22.5)

They would price match this at The Mobile Shop too, so you could get $300 worth of PC Points too. All you need to do is bring in the advertised bonus!

Good deal if someone needs a phone.
But some people are selling BB GC for 90% of the value. Hope they are legit
Be nice to people k?

This reduces your credit rating? or this is just a credit score check?

Wouldn't be worth if it reduced your credit score

It will be a hard check so it will impact your credit score.

I wouldn't buy a phone for the gift cards unless I was happy with the phone. Sure you get $300 which is a lot. But you are still stuck with a phone you wish you didn't buy long after you forgot what you wasted the gift cards on.

You can always sell the phone for at least $100? OR better yet use it for next year as a $100 trade in with Wow Mobile Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

If you already have Koodo, just open a new line.
I love RFD! :)

sell the phone for $150-$170 and take a ~$100 hit to get a $300 GC.

If you're churning Koodo phones, put it on SEASONAL HOLD.
