[Costco] Costco Mobile - Small Business Accounts BF Promotions - $100-300 Cash Cards & 3 Months Free

There is currently a thread for personal lines, so thought I'd create a thread for small business lines. Someone else created a 'discussion' about the small business line deals from 2 years ago, but thought I'd start a fresh thread with the actual deals being received by all.

You must have a valid GST number (some people have suggested that a business license or PST number will be enough, but GST guarantees you qualify), and have 2+ lines activated for small business lines. In order to get the best value, you need to buy new devices, as you qualify for additional credits on 2 year plans (if you cancel early, you'll get heavily penalized)

Generally, it appears that if you are porting over minimum 2 lines to Bell OR Rogers, you will receive 3 months of free wireless services (will appear on your phone bill), along with Costco cash cards ($100-$300 per line depending on the phone model), and a $120 (Bell & Rogers) credit per line for each new device (provided on your bill too).

Please keep in mind that some Costco reps may try and state that you must use the Costco cash cards towards accessories or extended warranties, but do NOT fall for it. They may also tell you that you will get free accessories and Costco cash cards, only to give you only half of what you should get in Costco cash cards and try to charge the 'free' accessories to extra Costco cash cards (I know this first hand as they attempted to do this to me 2 separate times a couple years ago).

Please share your deals and limit discussion.

Below are what have been reported so far over the past week in other threads:

Deal I was offered with Rogers for 3 lines (line 1 = $67.50 per month and each additional line is $45.00 per month - free Canada wide calls and 20GB per line):
iPhone 12 128GB
Device cost: $51.50/month for 24 months
Costco Card = $50
Activation Credit = $120
3 Months of free phone service (not on monthly device cost)

On Bell I was offered the same plan, but the below device options:
LG Velvet $15/month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card
Samsung S20 $35/ month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card
Samsung S20FE $25/ month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card
Samsung Note 20 Ultra $40/ month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card

2nd line - iPhone 11 128GB
Device cost: $33/month for 24 months
Costco card = $200
Activation Credit = $120
3 Months of free phone service (not on monthly device cost)

iPhone XR 64GB
Device cost: $25/month for 24 months
Costco card = $200
Activation Credit = $120
3 Months of free phone service (not on monthly device cost)

From Naticom:
1st line : $75-10%, 20GB data
2nd line : $50 - 10%, 20GB data
Each line has $325 port in credit (background was kind of noisy so I’m a bit unsure)
If you wanna get latest phone, only $100GC
If you choose older phone (e.g iPhone xr, iPhone 11, not pro pro max), you get $300GC


From MMMM:
Bell
$75 share plan/20 gb line or $75 20gb/line not shared
$25 per line discount up to 4 lines
Costco 10% discount
Costco gift cards per phone: see notes
Device credit and line discount per line for three months (this replaces the port in credit)
Included BT ear bus/car charger/bonus minutes (Can to US 50 mins)

Plan example for 4 lines: 20gb per line or 80gb shared (Costco 10% discount included)
1st line $67.50
2nd line $42.50
3rd line $42.50
4th Line $42.40
Avg line cost $175/4=$43.75

Iphone XR $720/24=$30

Iphone XR device credit =$300
$300x4=$1200 (paid in Costco gift cards)

First 3 months line and device credit for 4 lines:
after Costco 10% discount
67.5+42.5+42.5+42.5=$195
Iphone XR $30x4=$120

I just went to Richmond BC Costco around 3pm left around 6pm it was busy.

I had went Costco around the same time 2 years ago.
2 phones monthly bill was around $160 8gigs shared ported 2 lines to Bell from Fido and Telus.

Called Bell retentions yesterday to check if there is any Black Friday promotions and ended up getting on the $125 2 lines BYOD no contract.

Okay so checked the Costco email for the Super Friday Smartphone Savings. Is this the same as Black Friday promotion?

Anyways I ended up getting the Note 20 Ultra 128 gb in black and a Samsung S20FE porting to Rogers. The Note is financed $35 a month and at then end of 24 months around $500 buy out (I need to clarify some exact numbers in the morning). The S20FE is $25 a month and that's it.

Based on the $125 BYOD and discounts I will be paying around $170 per month. I need to clarify, it was rushed I couldn't stay any longer took almost 3 hours. I'll find out the exact numbers tomorrow.

Sum it all up 2x $300 ($600) in Costco GC, first 3 months service waived, activation $45 not waived, $330 bill credit, 2x car charge / 2x IQ ear buds. Paid $240 for extra warranty on the Note 20 Ultra but rep said Rogers bill will have this $240 credited on Rogers end after.

I tried to do some of the break down, quite confused actually but I have a questions for others - why is the device price not the msrp updated with current prices? Costco Note 20 Ultra 128gb is $2250, currently everywhere is selling the 518gb model for $1767 while the 128gb is $1557. The s20FE is $1200 and everywhere else is $764.99.

The difference between Costco price vs buyout price at any retailer is around $9xx. Am I really saving any money here?! Any input will be much appreciated sorry for the rough numbers I will update when i can.

the SRP only comes into picture if you cancel the contract.
also, IMO Rogers generally ups the credit and not adjust MSRP of older devices.

I guess this year, they've started to move away from port in credits to offering "free months" credit. Historically, Port in credits have been anywhere from $300-$600 per line on Black Friday for Business Accounts, but I guess they're creating a less obvious way of reducing it.

Thanks OP. I had the deal from 2018 as well but needed new phones for my kids.

Went to Costco last night and switched from Rogers to Bell business plans. Works out to about the same price as the rogers plan, but with 40gb vs the 10gb from rogers.

Bell
1st Line: $63 (after discounts) share plan/20 gb line
2nd Line: $47 (after discounts) second line share plan/20 gb line
Total of 40gb shared.

3 months of fees waived (Lines only, not phone payments) + $40 per line bill credit for 3 months.

Grabbed two iPhone XR. They told me that Bell business only gave a $200 per phone gift card, but she added another $100 in gift cards because she originally quoted $300 per. I don't know if I got screwed or not on this end.

Phone costs $25/month ($28 after tax) for 24 months.

Gave me car charges and earbuds (cheap brand, kids will probably break within a week).

My local contact at a Costco in GTA told me they will probably get updates on BF gift cards today.
Is it a chance they might bump up GC on these deals that everyone is getting?

Thank you for bringing absolutely no value to this discussion or bringing any deals into this chat. It's too bad I have to share this information with you, however, for the benefit of the rest of RFD, LG and Samsung deals below for Bell from YVR Costco as of today (3 months service free + $120 credit per line is the same as stated in my original OP):

First line $67.50 and each additional $45 for canada wide and 20GB free.

LG Velvet = $15/month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card
Samsung S20 = $35/ month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card
Samsung S20FE = $25/ month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card
Samsung Note 20 Ultra = $40/ month for device fee for 24 months = $300 cash card

Iphone 11 is now $200 cash card as is 11 pro max. iphone 12 is only $50 cash card.

That's a great deal. Out of curiosity, wouldn't it have been a better deal to pay an additional $5 per month for the iphone 11? Or was it due to the extra $100 cash card? If XR and 11 are $200 cash card, I'd recommending paying a bit more for the 11. Cheers.

Good point, but they are for my kids so I was going cheap cheap, especially since I wanted apple care so I tried to get as low of a final bill as possible. Initially the $300 vs $200 was a decision maker, but since they lowered it to $200 (then gave me oops cards) maybe the 11 would have been the better deal. Still would have been an extra $120 x 2 over two years so I'm not too upset lol.

Also, given that the XR was $200 with bell, maybe the 11 on business would have been less?

How come all the phones need financing now?

When I signed up business plan last year at costco, they said you pay $65 per month for the plan and the phone you pay one time fee of $20. Nothing about financing, just confused now that planse seem way more expensive??

This year deals are terrible. I'll wait until next week, may be they will add more deals. I checked Costco few days ago, rep told me that "Black Friday started 16.11" and didn't;t offer me any GC with phones, no any port credits etc.... Today it's possible to get GC and even get port credit (other rep offered me 50$ per line for 3 months PLUS 3 first months free (plan only)).

The RBC + Telus deal is the best one if you are doing 4 lines.
