[Koodo] Koodo - Samsung Note 8 (Refurbished) $0 on Tab Small with $5/mth Tab (YMMV)

I was looking for this phone from while it was at Tab Medium from while but today morning I saw a promotion for Tab Small with tab of $5 bringing cost to $120.

Total price is $500 with $80 as phone credit. So basically you have to pay $500 if you cancel early. No worries for me since I am not looking to cancel.

Thread Summary
******* IMPORTANT NOTES *******

For those that are unaware, Koodo's policies changed at the end of the summary. If you cancel early, you have to pay back the phone credit provided at purchase, prorated for the number of months left on your contract.

Also, the product page for the Note 8 is glitched - it's showing a $440 discount, and $80 phone credit, both of which are incorrect. When you add the phone to your cart, it shows the correct amounts ($380 phone credit, $120 tab). Also, not all people's accounts are correctly showing the deal - you'll see the $0 upfront on the product page, but when you add it to the cart, it switches over to a medium tab deal. CHECK THE CART CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU CHECK OUT.

Here's what you should see if you qualify for the deal:

The math, for those who don't understand how Koodo's new policy works:

Total device balance for the phone is $500 ($120 tab + $380 phone credit). If you cancel before your 24 months are up, you owe the prorated amount for both of those values - so basically

$500 / 24 * (number of months remaining in your contract) = amount due upon cancellation.

If you intend to stay with Koodo then you can just pay off the Tab portion at any time and buy a new device if you want. Churners beware!

It says $80 in phone credit? Still a good price if that's the case.

$120? Wow this is hot. For a long time, it was tab medium.

Edit: just placed an order for $5/month

Looks like this is for upgrades on existing lines only. I see it when I'm logged in, but when I'm logged out (or adding a new line) Image this is the pricing:

I am not sure if you have to pay $500 if you cancel early. The phone credit is $80. Shouldn't it mean you have to pay $120 (small tab) + $80 (credit) = $200 if you cancel early?

Question to Koodo users.
If we get the phone, can they pay off the tab balance sooner and get another deal if it shows up again?

BF is coming up and if you are thinking of switching to a better plan probably not worth it to get this phone.

Have to pay back $500 if you decide to make changes to your plan.

Final checkout page it says phone credits $380 and $120 tab.

Pretty scummy that they only show you this at the final step. I thought it was $80 too.

Wow, never mind, they are sneaky, when you check out, in the cart, they include the promotional price inside the phone credit as well.

I see the offer, but it's asking for $180 upfront with $10 monthly tab =/

When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

actually if you cancel early you pay tab and the phone credit. So it would be ($240+80+prorated ) *tax not too bad of a deal. As an existing user you can get this and if something better comes up you pay off the tab and phone credits and get the better deal.
*edit scratch that the tab is even less than that its $120 and 80 phone credit so replace the 240 with 120
*edit 2 scratch that phone credit is $380 Image you might be able to dispute this since on the front page its $80

Doesn't work for my 40/6gb plan.
Requires me to change it to 45/6gb for it to work.

Koodo really wants to kick us off these plans.
