How to get the best deal from Koodo as a new customer?

I've been reading lots of threads about people getting amazing deals from Koodo. $25 for unlimited talk and text. $14 for 10gb add-ons. Some people pay 40 or $45 for 8 gigs of data with unlimited talk and text.

These threads are really long and the info is dizzying.

I'm switching with my wife from Freedom Mobile in BC. Reception is pretty spotty. We will be bringing our own phones. We want the unlimited talk and text with tons of data. We currently have 7gb so anything around that or more would be great.

Is it still possible to get these deals as a new customer and how do you get them? Do you have to call in? Do you have to go to a store or booth? Do you have to go to Best Buy or some other retailer? Please advise.

If you just want the $25 unlimited calls/texts BYOD plan without getting a phone, TMS(The Mobile Shop) at RCSS is still offering it.
Phone your local TMS store to confirm the offering before going.
You cannot get this $25 plan from Koodo online.
You can also check with other Koodo retails partner store like, WOW, WM, BB.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $35 5GB, $11 250MB, 2x $5 50min/50text, Zoomer $36 6GB plan,
Fido $5 4GB plan with a free tablet, $0 FPL home phone.

The $10 data add on is targeted to current customers. You cannot get it as new customer.

The $40 8gb plans were also migration plans targeted to Public mobile customers moving to Koodo.

As a new customer you'll most likely only get what's on the website, $50 4GB. Back to school is near, maybe something better will come up.

You can also look at Public mobile, who offer 5GB for $38 or 8.5GB for $48.

There are also Lucky mobile -> Virgin migration plans. You can sign up for Lucky mobile for a month or so and you will be eligible for migration to Virgin. They have $40 6gb, $50 8gb

That might have just been closed according to some recent reports in the past couple of days
