I'll probably keep my 34$ for unlimited minutes +1 GB though.
That means you didn't call in for black friday last year?

Fido was offering 34$ for unlimited minutes Canada wide + 1GB of data, and on black friday, they would do the same deal with a bonus 1gb of data bumping you to 2GB.
All I had to do was chat in and they upgraded my plan. Told my family members that were with Virgin mobile, they matched the deal too.

For once this stuff is Quebec only, we always get screwed for anything else. :P

I thought the black Friday deal was for new users only?

When you get that plan, can they suddenly increase their price?

Virgin has an history of doing that.

Koodo, I don't think so.

Not to mention that you have to hand over your personal information to some sketchy guy, AND you run a higher risk of getting audited.

What exactly is it they are doing? How do they manage to get these plans?

Nope, it was to anyone on a BYOD plan. You just really had to chat them up or call them up to flip your plan over to 2GB.

It was my friend that told me about it, since he was a long standing client of Fido too with the same 1GB data plan.

Yeah

I remember fido user could upgrade to 2 GB but not Koodo

Where I live I can only have Telus-Bell plan.

Anyway it was a great deal

First up... Koodo (and Fido, Virgin) has plan for Manitoba where you get Unlimited Canada wide minutes, text and 5 GB LTE data for $48/month.

There is a loophole in Koodo's website that lets you get this plan in AB, BC or ON.

What people do is:

1. Sign up for new line from local Koodo store/reseller. Use real address and get a new local number and the cheapest plan available.

2. Go home and change number to a Manitoba number using online self serve. Koodo generates a new Manitoba number for them.

3. Once first billing cycle ends (usually 3-9 days from sign up), plan is changed to $48 plan using self serve.

4. Right after, people port in existing number from a different provider. That's it.

There are a couple of additional steps involved if person is already Koodo subscriber but still doable


Koodo has been made aware of this loophole numerous times. There are 2 CBC articles on it, but at this point they must be keeping it open intentionally.

Same loophole can be used to get this QC plan as well.

That website is a joke. In business since 2008, and apparently you wait in a queue, because they're so busy being as popular as they are. Someone needs a real job.
The name is pronounced El‧u‧àr‧do. I am the ultimate deal hunter, y'all just gatherers. I was the first openly black man to get a Costco membership.

I have a Fido Loyalty plan for $70 with 6GBS of data and pretty much unlimited everything. Does it make sense to down grade? I dont think i even use any of that stuff, i pretty much work from home and use my wifi!
