Add a line. Get the phone . Cancel the line. Use your old tab small line.

Shoot - looks like the $100 bonus gift is for new activations only lol

I'm wondering if you can call into retentions and get them to give you that $100 bonus credit as well for an upgrade

Majority of people will qualify for a Tab Medium.

Can we still churn with Koodo? Have they made the change allowing them to clawback the subsidy if you cancel within 2 years? (Yes, I know - read the contract, but have people noticed the change has come into effect broadly yet?)
Otherwise if they just have the 90 day requirement we can just put the account on seasonal hold, right?

$100 gift is only on new activations. Also I am not 100% sure on this but if you plan on cancelling right away I think they charge you back the $100. I believe there's a rule where you have to stay with Koodo for 90 days to keep any gifts. If you cancel they will charge the value of the prepaid gift card or MSRP of the gift. Activation credit (the discount before any gifts) stays though.

EDIT: Here is a link to Koodo's twitter saying bonus gifts will be charged back:

EDIT 2: I know BestBuy and other third-party sellers will not charge back the gift cards. I am talking about buying directly from Koodo.

iphone XS will never be "cheap".
I waited for a cheap iphone X and it never happened.
$1000 retail price phones can go cheap..... $1400 retail price phones don't seem to.

Damn, can anyone confirm clawback on $100 bonus gift? Any source on this, or personal account of clawback happening?
With the $100 gift, I'll pull the trigger.
Without it, I feel like black friday wait may be worth it.

How do you get the 100$ if you cancel the next day?
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.
