Isn't this against the wireless code?
Yes. But Koodo is still doing it ATM.

So what's the process prior to porting to another network to get the cheque?
If your intention is just that, once all referral credits have been applied to your account, then port out (ideally the day before your billing cycle).

Else activate more lines before cancellation date on same account.

A few RFD reports that Koodo has setup their computer system to prevent CSR from switching line in new account to SH.

Therefore, if you have an account over 90 days, keep it alive - don't close it for churning purposes. Yesterday, I switched my new line, which I activated last Saturday, to SH without any issue. BTW, I my account is 7 months old.

@titaniumtux, you said before that Koodo allows max of 7 lines in an account.
Is it max of 7 active lines OR total 7 lines including those lines which I closed?
My current account has 3 active lines and 3 closed lines ATM.

My account has a hard limit of 4, have 3 open and 1 closed where tab amount is getting paid by next bill cycle. Tried to add a 4th active line and koodo system prevents the store rep from activating. Might be different depending on your credit check and if the tabs are paid off. Also, referral site faqs mention a max of 7 lines per account

@titaniumtux, you mentioned that "No credits can be awarded on a closed account (but can be awarded on cancelled lines as long as the account remains active)." Have you had first had experience with this? I recently cancelled a line that has referral credits that have yet the be credited, but the account is still active. Hopefully I still get them or I might have to reopen the line (I believe you can still do that within 90 days).

I tried to follow the same steps mentioned in the OP but I am having a problem. I tried the profile>role management but it doesn't have my second line or my e-mail. However if i use my second line e-mail and the password to log in. I see a blank page that just says no bills or if i click shop>phones, it asks to log in again and if i try it, there is an error. Any idea?

I ported my wife's number from zoomer today, and the port is completed. Got the message too.

Ignore cancelled lines for max capable lines. For the max seven lines for referrals, please report back once you've maxed out referrals on seven lines in a year. Don't know if it's max referrals on seven lines simultaneous or per calendar year.

Wait for credits to come in. If they don't get awarded, then hopefully you use their service to get some empathy from a CSR. 🤣

Did you complete referral after porting in?

Also, have 2nd user create self-serve with their email/alias and account number, then in your self-serve you'll be able to approve the user in Role Management.

Enjoy.

My account has 6 lines. 3 lines was created in 2017 and they were closed already. I only add a new line every 1 - 2 months. By the time I get the 7th 2018 line, it will be round the end of 2018. Next line will be the 7th line since my account was created in 2017 and the 4th line for 2018.

So in that case, you might not be the best candidate for "maxing out". I wouldn't count any of your 2017 lines that you didn't retain into 2018.

I just got the referral credits. So port out, then do I still need to call to request for the cheque or no need?

If you've had the service active for 90+ days, then you're good. Port out, and they'll mail you a cheque as long as account balance is a credit of >$20.

It is nice to know that they will send you the credit balance even if it is referral money.
I have a closed Koodo account with large credit balance from referral credit. This account was closed in 2016 and I just checked online, the credit balance is still there. I left the credit balance there because Koodo did not bill me for the tab balance after cancellation.

Yeah, it’s more than 90 days. Thanks for the info! Time to port to PM!

Update: max five authorized users to refer out at any given time. Once you max out on one line's referrals, I recommend removing its self-serve access (unless you're nearing end of year and plan on referring out from that line in the new year).
