So I just got my bill and 1 line has the $15 credit... other line doesn't.
Problem is, I wasn't with PM. I ported from zoomer.

thinking I'm NOT going to call in to complain about $15/month in credits.
But I am curious if maybe a local booth can help? I know they won't kill my line. But maybe they are useless for credits? Any thoughts?
I would wait another month before doing that just in case.
I love RFD! :)

Drill down a few pages of the pdf bill. You should still see:
"$15 P2P Credit 12 months* - $15.00"

my plan was activated on September 2nd and i got my first bill today, bill charges for sept and oct

for sept it shows the 15 P2P credit but just straight 40/month for october
If this is your first bill note that it will also have partial charges for few days.
Credit is tied to the full month only. By looking at the bill it may look like they gave you credit for the temp number and not for the ported number. That is not the case.
Wait for another bill.

Of the two numbers I activated, both of which ported, the number I activated a week ago and ported a week ago shows the credit.
The number I ported much earlier.. early September... Does not have the bill credit.

I can understand what you guys are all saying... But it's not happening. It doesn't make sense for my second line to get it before the first line does.

I know a lot of people did promo conversions with this deal and switched out a number on the $40/6GB plan to either $35/5GB or $40/8GB plan. Did the referral work in this case? Presumably, the number has been used once in March and now again in the same calendar year and would likely be disqualified even though there was a port out of Koodo and then back in.

Who. Rogers has no idea what TELUS can do. Two totally different companies. Not sure what your saying here? What do you mean $5 for 5GB with unlimited calls? Texting?

Verbose on please....

$15 1gb with unlimited calls is doable but they won't. My local Rogers rep said they are using $5 for 5gb with unlimited calls.

If they do, their annual revenue will decrease instead of increase.

I got my second bill today (I signed up in store in the last week of August). Two things - 1) No $30 credit yet for the activation fee. They said 2nd or 3rd bill so it should be on the next one! 2) Looks like tax is charged on the full amount, before the $15 credit is deducted, so that's about $2 more than I thought it'd be.

So i received my sim.. Does the plan start charging you from when you order/receive the sim, or when you activate it (or does it already come preactivated?)

Since I'm in the middle of a billing cycle at Chatr, i'd like to use as much of that as possible before activating the Koodo, but if Koodo is already charging me from the time i ordered (or already preactivated), then obviously better to activate/port now.

From the day you receive the activation email.

Credit amount is usually applied on taxed total bill, example 40/8 GB plan ((40x1.13 = 45.20)-15.00) = 30.20 is the final bill
I only response to real deals, otherwise I am blank
  1. Koodo 40/8 Line 1
  2. PM 50/8 N/American Talk Line 3
  3. Koodo 40.5/8 Line 2
  4. Koodo 40/8 Line 4

Blame this on the government. Long ago, these types of credits were done before tax is calculated. The governments realized that discounts really cut into their revenue and so they adjusted the tax laws so that the discount comes after the taxes are assessed. I long for the day when Canada deploys nationwide calling for all plans. I would get Alberta only numbers in a heart beat. But then the governments would probably change the tax laws for cell plans and have taxation based on address and not number.
