1gb/day would be even sweeter loool
I'm on the same plan. I don't want to rock the boat too much, but if you want to call in and ask, more power to you. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

"Hi, I see Freedom Mobile is trying to lure me with their special offer for Telus customers. Can you give me an extra 5GB for free?"

"But you're paying $30 for 25GB already!"

"Umm, okay."

I called anyway to ask. I'm due for a new phone soon and they told me if I chose to upgrade at a future date, this 5gb add-on will drop. However if I upgraded right now they would be able to add it to the new tab. As long as you mentioned Freedom is trying to poach you, you should be eligible. I still feel a bit fishy how easy they are offering this and will hold out until BF. Nothing to really lose with original PM offer and a very useable pixel 3.

I'm on the $25 Talk text + $14/10GB add on

Canadian support gave me the extra free 2GB data add on putting me at $39/12GB. To those other 7 agents that said they absolutely can't offer the data add on to base data plans with no data, it is a load of baloney.

I am on $45 6GB+1Bonus GB plan. My tab got over this month. I asked if I can get a better plan along with 5 bonus GB. They offered 5 GB bonus but no price reduction Neutral Face

I just did 3 quebec plans all with gta area codes no problem. Level 1 support wanted me to change from $34 1gb to $45 to 2gb +5gb. She also asked if I was interested in hup which I was not.

I suggested I don't want a price increase so she forwarded me to Loyalty. Loyalty offered $34 1gb + 5gb or $35 2gb + 5gb. Also got the quebec $50 9gb down to $45 4gb + 5gb. I could have went for $50 9gb + 5gb for these ones.

No, so it's $39/12GB now. For those of us on the previous $25 talk/text + $14/10gb add on plan, we weren't eligible for this offer because you need to have $35+ base plan with data.

After 8 tries, I got them to give me a 2GB add on instead of 5GB, and keep my $39/10GB plan so in essence what every agent has been saying about losing the $14/10gb add on and can't stack add-ons is a load of BS. Yes you can and I am proof of it. It just depends on how much effort you want to put in.

After try #4, I switched it up and stopped asking for the 5GB bonus on my plan, and instead asked to revert back to my old $40/8gb PM migration plan + add the 5GB add on, but had no success.

The best offers I got were from the Canadian Tier 2 agents. The South American ones were not helpful.

Be nice and if it doens't work, just try again. At some point, it's diminishing returns because you have logs from previous agents of what they offered you and they are less inclined to give you anything.

For those of us on the $39/10GB plan, there is hope!

I just wanted to match what I could have gotten if I stayed on the $40/8gb migration plan I had previously, and I think this is pretty close.

So you have 12gb for $39? Then why bother asking for $40/8gb + 5gb? It's basically the same

Can someone confirm if this can be stacked with EPP discount? ...apparently one rep I called said it’s not compatible

Because I didn't know the 2GB add on bonus was an option. The goal was always to get the 5GB add on.

Unless you can get it in writing from Koodo that you will be guaranteed the 5 GB freebie on BF, I wouldn't believe anything the CSR said. A few people in this thread mentioned the freebie as being a limited time offer, and with this promo making big waves on RFD, Mobile Syrup and social media, I have doubts they'll continue this add-on for much longer. You might be able to get a freebie data add-on on Black Friday, it just might not be 5 GB, but rather 1 or 2 GBs that are relatively easy to get.

I managed to get the +5gb pretty easily but was more hoping for a price reduction to at least $40 again but no go, she said they have no data plans at the price range. I was told to wait till black friday when they might have an equivalent deal.

So heres my question whats the point of having ~10gb of data? Lol, being a cheapo I've always walked the fine line of minimum data needed, I ran with 500mb for many many years, even with 4gb now I only use up to 1.5-2gb a month from normal-high usage. Do you people stream netflix and youtube daily on data? Spotify & maps is all I really need data wise.

I'm strongly considering switch to Freedom Mobile to get back down to $35 a month, whats the downsides? As most people in here are trying to stay with Koodo and paying slightly more. $35 was my sweet spot for a while and hate that I'm up to $45 now, would love to get back down there again.
Everyone has different needs. You'll be surprised how much data can be easily used when you have latest phone and use apps that have 4K.

I just got this deal having the $45 8gb plan in Sask. Took me two phone calls to get it. Both initial representatives on the call backs tried telling me they couldn't give me any deals, when i brought up the $0 5gb they stated it was for BC, Ontatio, Alberta etc. The first call i was on hold to try and talk to someone with more authority (supervisor/loyalty) when i got a call back on going to get my flu shot, so i had to abandon that call. The call this morning the employee gave me the same story about not being able to help etc, i then told the new one that yesterday i was on hold for loyalty and the rep had mentioned the $0 5gb and explained that i had to give up on the hold as it was taking too long. I also responded to their "not available in sask" remark by stating i knew someone who got it in sask. At this point the rep said they could transfer me to loyalty. After waiting on hold the loyalty rep was incredibly helpful, Started off by asking what was up with me, and when i mentioned i was looking for the $0 5gb add on she immediately was happy to give it to me. My time spent on the phone with loyalty was only like 2-3 min and my account plan immediately reflected the new add on 5gb for free.

Loyalty seems way more able to help than the first line of representative you get on your call back.

Thanks for the tip OP!

Callback failed for me. Once I answered, their end rang for 3 minutes before automatically disconnecting (probably RFD effect).
Twitter DM to @Koodo worked like a dream though. Fast and no screwing around with talking to someone that needs to talk to a manager, etc.

Extra 5GB on my old $35 plan now gives me 10GB. Thanks OP!

(FYI, if you don't have Twitter, you can do the same thing through Facebook)
