I received the Koodo text today just as I was about to port my number to Rogers. I still went ahead with the port as Rogers is offering a better EPP deal.

East coast people?

I wanna stay at the same price monthly, so what plan should I be asking for that will be $50 a month? (or cheaper I guess if its an option to upgrade my plan while saving money lol ) I'm in Nova Scotia if that matters / changes plan options
I didn’t end up waiting to hear what others have got. I am in NS. First personI talked to only offered the plans in self serve. Went to loyalty. I am on 2gb and unlimited now for $45. I was very clear I didn’t want to pay more. They best he could offer was 6gb and unlimited for $50. He also mentioned that if I really want better to wait with fingers crossed for Black Friday.

I just called from Vancouver and they said they didn't have any code for $50/8GB. This was retentions. Was anyone in BC able to get this today? She did offer me $60 for 12 gb, but i am looking for the $50 plan. thanks

Koodo is extremely bad when it comes to honoring or even repeatability. One person will say yes next will say no.
Robelus is even worse though.

I tried last week. They claimed no $50/8g, very rude. I bought a Virgin prepaid sim and leaving Koodo (VM $40/6g will active after 30 days).

I got the $50 plan this morning by talking to loyalty. It was pretty easy for me because I can see $50/8GB , $55/10GB and $60/12GB plans are available via self service. The only thing is they are marked as “exclusive “ hardware upgrade plans. I simply mentioned to loyalty guy that I’m interested in taking the $50 plan but no need to get a new device at this point. He put me on hold for 5 minutes and told me he can apply it to my account without signing up a new phone. $10 service fee will be charged to next bill.

810 down for a 256gb pro max, 74.75 per month. Koodo was asking for 1300 plus down on the Medium tab, 500$ additional so decided to call it quits with Koodo.

I just got a text with the $50/8GB offer. I see it online if I pick a Tab Medium. Wouldn't mind the plan upgrade from my $48/5GB.

However I simply don't like any of the phones on offer. I want something small, powerful and developer-friendly. None of the options are all 3. (Pixel is too big for me, S10e & iPhone is too locked-down, the smallest phones are junk.) This is not really Koodo's fault though, more the industry :P

I’m in BC. Seems like I’m one of the lucky guys and not so many people can get this plan in BC

The s10e software is pretty similar to the pixel.

But it has a permanently locked bootloader, so not developer friendly.

I was offered the $50 8gb last week. thanks to the OP I called in asking for the 8 gb plan and I ended up getting the $45 6gb unlimited and the $35 2gb unlimited plan. Those were more suited for me as i was looking to save more money. The loyalty person was really good and was trying to help me out with saving. He waived the $10 fee, i got to keep my multi line discount, 1000 minutes LD, and my 1gb for 24 months. my 3rd line has the $60 12gb. I didnt need to do a hardware upgrade either.

I got the offer but didn't want any of the phones. I was able to get the $50/8GB as an exception by asking on FB Messenger. Previously was on $48/5GB out of province plan. I wasn't able to bargain away the $10 fee though.

i have a feeling fb messenger folks are more open to changes but their authentication link fails. Do you have you koodo number and real name linked to the fb account?

I do have my real name on my FB account. I don't know if I granted access to my phone number but I was already logged into my Koodo account in the mobile browser when I clicked the link, and I think it sniffed that and authenticated me.

Anyone have any luck getting these plans as a new customer? I’ve tried chatting with a rep but not having any luck.
