[Koodo] Koodo Prepaid Free Data Booster on New Activation In-store

Koodo is offering a free data booster for new prepaid activation in store or with authorized dealers. You also get regular $20 activation credit, one time 100 minute Canada-wide talk booster and 10% back if you setup preauthorized payment. Sim card is $20 (if you buy from Koodo store) but you get back that $20 as activation credit.
Koodo also offers double-top-up time to time on booster add ons. These booster add ons don't expire as long as you keep paying the base price every month.
Good for those (like me) who wants to switch to cheaper plans.

Any idea what the data booster is? 100 MB? 500 MB? 1 GB?

I guess you can avail the highest one...i.e., 1GB.

For people that may be used to the $15 activation credit which was available rightaway, the $20 activation credit applies as $5 credits every month for 4 months as long as you continue renewing (basically useless if you only buy for a month in the long and fun tradition of porting a number out then back in)

The 100 minute canada wide booster is a cool thing and it's worth $20 (of course, as long as you're comfy with providing a credit card for automatic renewals, no free lunch). Thanks, op!

not worth the money, I think the speak out 711 is better than this.

Depends on your needs and usage. If you actually use talk minutes and don't need data, Koodo prepaid has double the booster deals a couple of times per year. Buying 600 minutes (X2) gives 1200 minutes for $30, or $0.025 per minute and it doesn't expire as long as you keep your $13.50/month plan active. This plan has cut my Telus prepaid plan in half. I only switched to hope for a $25/month postpaid offer from Koodo and have been offered it a number of times, but the prepaid is still much cheaper. Add to that a couple of US boosters and my plan fits me much better than the 711 plan.

I concur. I rarely make calls or use data, nice to have add-ons that don't expire if you don't use them as long as you keep the base plan active. And you can often find prepaid vouchers for 20%+ off. I just bought $150 worth of vouchers for $100.

Where do you get discounts on prepaid vouchers?

I used to get them from RCSS when they had no tax days but they changed their policy a while back to charge tax on these.

Yes, I have speak out 7-11, and merely use calls and data, because I top up every year during the promotion season, so paid 100, get 125$ , after four years, I current total balance on speak-out is about 400$

Secret. ;)

Jk, I usually find them on Kijiji. Just need to be informed when buying and watch out for typical scams.

Wait so is the free data booster every month or just a one-time thing?

Nice! You got a link for one of those ads that you bought from? I checked the GTA area and don't see any for sale right now.

Just did a quick search and found one, 2x $50 for $60. I'd get it for myself but I have enough in my account to last me another year lol.

They pop up from time to time, just be careful when buying GCs online as per usual. :)
