Question for you since it seems that you are quite familiar with the referral system. If I have 6 referrals + $15 credit that would mean I am getting $75 credit from koodo a month which is quite a bit more than my bill ($40). Would my bill just be $0 or would it be a negative balance which would be paid forward after my credits have run out?
Yes, excess credits build up in the account and is available for use to pay for phone tabs, add-ons, etc. The funds are not lost.

Thanks for the heads up! I have not been warned about any of this by Koodo. My assumption is that overall we are doing good by encouraging sign ups. Koodo pays a price up front, they get an opportunity to have a long term customer thereafter.

Anyway back in March during the $100 referral fiasco, one of my lines was abused. There were not that many people who had accounts set up and were positioned to give out $100 referrals. I gave my referral to a handful of people but my link ended up being shared. I lost count of referrals, it was about 10 pages of names. Of course, I received payment for $300 worth of referrals. Others received their share. I never got any feedback from Koodo over this. This had led me to think that there is no such thing as abuse of the system or if there was such a thing, the threshold is unbelievably high. I guess I will be a lot more careful going forward and perhaps strategically closing old accounts to remove old records. How many years of ongoing referrals does it take to get them to act?
Yeah, that's why I'm wondering how sure @BrendanD is of what caused what - did they label him dealer because of too many referrals, or did they stop letting him get paid for referrals because he's labeled dealer?

To be fair to customers, the rules do say that each line is eligible for $300 every calendar year. Since they do cap it automatically, how can anyone be accused of abuse?

Talking about abuse of the system, a big thank you to the person who recently left me two presents on Refer-a-friend:

F*t C**t and B*g D*ck
Both are presently verifying details. I look forward to activation and I'm glad I'm in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks again.

I got some of those as well. I take it in stride. If that is what makes the sick people happy, well it is better than doing something violent. In 30 days, they expire.

In the me too era, this kind of stuff is not really a good thing to do. If the character doing this kind of stuff bumps into the wrong person, it could get reported as a hate crime or cyber bullying.

Well, these do stay in history forever as expired, and won't us help trying to pretend they are all from 'friends'.
Too many of these may cause a red flag.

Yes, my 1.6 billion Reddit friends and I are great pals.

To be fair, 80% of my referrals were genuine people I know or helped out. 20% have come from me waving my arms in the air.
