Final question is related to in-store promos. When I was singing up there were pretty good deals on Tab phones from places like Walmart/TMS/Wow Mobile where they offered additional gift cards/rebates on various phones (eg Samsung A8 $360 tab with $350 gift card). Are these weekend plans still happening and what is the best way to find out about them before this weekend? Do they get advertised on their respective webpages or only in store?
For store promos, you can keep an eye on this forum or call the stores yourself. Personally, I think it is best to separate hardware purchase from cell plan purchase. It is very difficult to time the two to perfection. If a good cell phone deal comes along, get a temporary plan with the phone.

Usually first notice I see of those deals is when @NavieM posts in Hot Deals somewhere, usually later in the day on Friday. Apparently nothing great right now and nothing great expected - at least compared to those back to school offers like the A8. I think the next time those good deals will be around is Black Friday.

You can always contact the stores themselves - though it's probably the same timeline, they don't find out what deals are being offered until Friday sometime. Maybe just plan to start calling the stores tomorrow afternoon and ask what kind of deals they have?

Thank you. I'll check the forum tomorrow and call in to the stores to see what they are offering. The wife definitely wants to switch this weekend so it's good advice to sign up now, regardless what phone hardware offers are around. If nothing good exists, she has no problem waiting until later periods like Black Friday, Christmas.

Go to the refer a friend site and sign up for an account by following the prompts. I prefer to "sync" my online account with refer a friend by using the same email address. Once account is set up, you can use the link in the main landing page to issue referrals. Sign up how ever many referrals you need with the link. That is pretty much it. Just remember, $300 per account is the limit in any calendar year. Don't overdo it and not get paid for the effort. If you are out of referral room, pass referrals onto people in need.

For the new lines that will be accepting the referrals, you use your name but different email addresses for each line.

There is a hot deals thread covering pre-owned iPhone 8 if that interests you. This is direct through Kooodo, no stores involved.

Does anybody know what the deadline would be for me to port over my PM number? Activated my line with Koodo but since I still have a full month of prepaid service with PM, I might as well keep both lines active for as long as I can.

Once you receive the activation email from Koodo, your service has become active and you're paying for it.

Not bad
Do all the lines you added to the original account have the 35$/5gb 40$/8gb offer too?

Yep. But I haven’t ported my PM number over to Koodo cuz once I do that, my PM account will be deactivated. Hence I want to hold off on doing that for as long as possible (I still have 1 month of prepaid service left with PM).

Which one is the activation email? I got an email saying my sim card is being shipped to me. Is there another email that comes later?

There is one little impediment. You do want to complete referrals? If so, you need to complete the porting in time to submit the referrals before they reach the expiration date. That is probably the limits of how far you can defer the port. Well you could defer indefinitely if you change your mind and decide to not port at all. In that case, you can submit the existing number for referral.
