Dang it, so what is the arrangement of GCs at the retailers? I'm not worried about those overpriced accessories anyway so unless it's a GC, I rather do it online.
$150 according to WOW website plus $50 you and someone mentioned. Medium tab (plus activation and plan cost).

I was just going with whatever someone else mentioned. Hmm... so this isn't the best route, is it? I mean now I own a extra $120 in the tab and be dinged $35 in activation fees. Guess online is the best?

I have to admit I'm pretty much anti-LG since my LG G5 crumbled down, but OP thanked because @ $240 this is definitely a great deal.
I debated between an s7 and a g5 a couple years ago. I ultimately got the s7. I had a bit of buyers remorse and wondered if I should have gotten a g5 since the concept seemed good and I like removable batteries to. Later that year for black friday my significant other was still using an s4 and needed an update. The g5 was a good deal on a mid plan. I recommended it since I almost got it but got s7 instead. After about 5 months it started getting an error and randomly shutting down. She went to telecom provider and they shipped it off for repair under warranty. Then they completely refused to fix it. They said there's corrosion and it must be user caused from water damage. They didn't care whatsoever and tried to sell her a new phone at market price. I knew it never touched water nor had this type of damage. I used my technical knowledge to even confirm. Not a single water damage strip was discolored, nor had it ever touched water to her knowledge. Lg refused to do anything either. After bugging LG enough they shipped out a replacement battery pack and said if it didn't work she was basically screwed. The shipped battery pack was defective and wouldnt lock in place on one side. So it would slide out often. It fixed the issue but every now and then it'd come unjammed despite it being in a case to keep it together. She would often find it turned off despite needing it for work and being on call often. She had to revert to her s4 phone. After I got a new phone she got my hand me down s7 and will never get another LG. Had the shipped replacement battery not been defective in this manner she'd probably be taking this deal and getting this phone right now as she's no longer locked in despite the original trouble she had. But the combination of the original issue, the telecom company (not Koodo), the trouble of getting a replacement part from LG, and the replacement part being defective she won't even consider it. I actually had a lot of respect for the g5 and the innovation of it on first release. But ultimately they truly convinced me I dodged a bullet after I saw the issues she had and many others had from online forums. With the s7 I did get a peeling home butting which seems to be a common defect. But that's nothing compared to what many g5 users faced.

The only LG phone anyone should buy is a new LG closeout phone. Any manufacturing defects are usually already addressed by the end part of their run.

I sometimes get the LG hate as they always seem on the cusp of making an ideal phone, yet gimp it up one way or another. I've stuck by them and generally still like them, partly due to limited alternatives.

Personally I don't want to use a Chinese phone (some are fine with it, personal choice) so Huawei is out. I still like a micro SD card slot, so no Pixel. I want a top tier phone and need one carried by the major carriers as my phone is company paid, so Asus is gone (Motorola, for it being owned by Lenovo is also out because Rogers doesn't carry the Z). I'm left with Samsung and LG. I had the Samsung S4 and hated the UI. I assume it's improved but now don't like the curved screen. Samsung also has its own issues.

The LG may not be flashy, but I just generally like it's overall feel and ethos. I wish it had a better camera, i could've done without the bootloop on my G4, and you can always improve on things like battery life, but it just kind of works for me.

Now mind you, I also drive Acuras, so maybe it's an unloved/wallflower thing for me, haha.

I just got back from TMS and picked up the G6. I just activated a new line.

+ Small tab $240
+ $35 x 3 months (talk and text plan and stay 3 months)
+ $35 activation fee
- $250 (in PC points)
- $35 credit on 3rd bill
- $20 referral credit

Then I got a $50 trade in credit and picked up a case.

$240+$105+35-$250-$35-$20=$75 + taxes and $50 trade in credit.

He also offered me the A5 that came with $300 in PC points on a new line on a tab small. The G6 on a hardware upgrade was $240 tab small - $150 in PC points + $35 activation = $125.

To this day I still think the G2 is the phone that put LG on the smartphone map, in terms of its improvement over the preceding model, and how well it stacked up against the superphones of that vintage, in all aspects of performance. Heck, we still have 2 of them. My wife is still using one without issues. Battery lasts a long time, and charges really quickly. Sure, it's stuck on Android 4 something, but most people don't care, or wouldn't know any better.

Actually I didn't realize the GC promo is on Tab M. If that's the case, then ordering directly online would be the easier option, or pick one up from TMS, if you shop at Superstore and can use the points.

TMS will do a hardware upgrade for customers already on koodo and give them pc points?

That was my other option. He said they don't advertise other than the whiteboard at the store so maybe it's store specific?

Just got back from Scarborough Town. They offer med tab and 250 gc or small tab and 100 gc. If you do med tab minus 250 it's about 110, small tab 240 minus 100 is 140.

Love my LG G6. Have had for about a year, battery lasts me all day with moderate use. To me it has a great camera. Far from sluggish but I also don't have a million apps. Don't think the newest phones are worth the price.
I have had my G6 for a year as well, and it's been the best phone I've ever owned. I love this phone. Sure, the battery isn't the greatest, but I carry a spare battery pack with me if I know I won't be able to charge it easily while traveling. The camera is without compare as of yet, the wide angle camera pics always have people asking me what kind of camera I use. It was good enough to take killer real estate pics of my house for sale.

I love the slim width of this phone, as it makes it easy to use one handed. I have no complaints about the phone, and have a moderate amount of apps, but don't game on my phone. Still a great deal for 240, but even better with the gift cards that are sure to appear on black friday.

Sure do shop at Superstore, No Frills, Shoppers. etc. I see online it's up to 150k points, so $150, anyone got a clue if those points are for small tab or medium tab (or something else)? In Vancouver that matters..
