Just to add for eligibility purposes, my account has around 5GB out of the 8GB used with around 3 days left in the monthly cycle. I usually use around 75% of my data.
Koodo $50/12GB - 25% EPP = $37.50/12GB

1) Call Koodo to downgrade your plan or do it through Self Serve. It has to be one with Pay-For-Use Data or else the add-on won't work.
2) Wait 20 minutes and then reply to the text offer to add your 4GB/$10 or 10GB/$15.

Pictures attached of my offer and rate plan. I got loyalty to add a $30 unlimited Canada-wide talk and text plan with Pay-Per-Use data. Then proceeded to reply to the text for the additional 10GB/$15 and I end up with $45/10GB data and unlimited talk and text. Good luck!
Last year's thread for this promotion indicated Koodo had closed the loophole by only allowing plans with data to apply the 10GB add-on offer. Can anyone else confirmed that they changed it?

For many of us here, once we change from our loyalty plans, we cannot go back.
If we were to change out of our loyalty plans to an in-market cheaper plan and the data add-on does not work, couldn't we be stuck in a situation where you are out of your loyalty plan and the data add on does not even work?

Sounds a bit risky, just saying.

same - my dad is on the $40/6Gb plan and rarely uses enough GBs - thought it might be good to get the data add-on and downgrade to the $25 talk n text plan...

But looks like he isn't eligible and the $25 talk n text plan is gone anyways...

This is only for current customers that get a text from Koodo with the add-on offer. There seems to be a theory about them sending the offer to people who use a minimal amount of their monthly allotment of data or come close to using it all up.

I suppose it depends on the plan and the person. Being on the $50/8GB plan, and usually using 5-6GB out of the 8GB, it wouldn't be the end of the world for me to take a jump at the $35 talk/text plan and try to add the add-on that was offered, when I can fall back on the in-market $50/5GB plan. Risking the loss of 3GB to gain 2GB isn't a terrible risk for me.

With that being said, I'd prefer to wait to hear what others have to say about what they know or what their experiences have been.

Hmm. Can you get the add-on first and then sign up for the talk and text plan?

I reluctant to pay off my $90 tab because they waive it sometimes.

Supposedly they will remove add-ons if the plan is changed.

good things come to ppl who wait.... wait for the next $25 promo... take the addon for now...

If you take the addon now and wait for the 25 promo, doesnt it get taken off from your account when you downgrade?

---------------

I have received this promo and I am contemplating on getting it. Any idea on how to reach call center? I called twice and all I get are pre recorded messages to use self serve.
