[Koodo] Unadvertised Plan - 100min, 2GB data for $54/mo

Just signed up for this somewhat hot deal from Koodo at the local mall booth. I do not see it on their web site. Telus and Bell both refused to match it, so that should tell you something :arrowu: :

100 nationwide daytime minutes
Unlimited evenings and 5pm weekends
Unlimited texting
Voicemail
Caller display
2GB Data

$54 - 10% for bringing my own device = $48.60/mo

I might bite on this when I come back. Is this region specific?

Is it 1000 minutes or 100? 100 seems really low.

I can verify this. What they're doing is matching Virgin Mobile's offer of the $29/mo base plan ($34 on Gold or Med Tab w/Koodo) and adding a 2GB data add on for $25.

Koodo and Virgin Mobile are both offering this they're just advertising it in different ways.

$54 for Silver or Small Tab
$59 for Gold or Medium Tab
or of course bring your own phone and enjoy a 10% discount on the $54 plan as the OP stated

About to sign up for the plan on Nexus 5 ($50 Gift Card incl at Mobile Shop locations)

If it interests anyone, Koodo also has a limited time offer of a 5GB Canada-Wide data plan (unlimited everything else) for $94/mo. Not as good a deal IMO because I don't need the minutes, but its out there.

Depends on the user. If this is a legit deal, I'd jump from Bell in seconds. I'd essentially double my data and take $20/month off my bill. The only thing I lose out on is daytime minutes (200 vs 100)
Let's hug it out

Not everyone lives in SK/MB, so we're stuck with dealing with a lack of competition.

I live in Nova Scotia. Just tell then you're moving to Sask and then switch your number by porting it.

SK/MB have more cell carrier competition than the rest of Canada?

So you never lived in SK and obtained that plan? Are you serious?

Only disadvantage would be people calling you would get dinged for long distance to SK. :(

Manitoba: MTS
Saskatchewan: SaskTel
Thunder Bay: Tbaytel

Because of these 3 cell phone companies Bell, Rogers, and Telus have to lower their rates in these areas in order to compete.

Why not just go with Wind Mobile 39,99$ plan. It's quite simple : Unlimited data in the US or Canada (no extra fees), call all you want to Canada from the US or to the US from Canada (no roaming fees). Call display, forward, conference etc (does not include voicemail) and unlimited text.

In Canada, all the above applies to the big cities : Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston, Vancouver (excludes province of Quebec).
In the US the plan is better (Anywhere on T-Mobile network - and that's pretty much everywhere where there is service).

Wind doesn't have LTE, uh?

The thing about cell phone deals on this forum is that everyone seems to think they can get a better deal than the next person. If that's the case that's fine, but everyone has different circumstances surrounding their decision.

Wind isn't available to everyone and their coverage can be spotty - hence they are able to offer lower cost plans.

Not everyone may be willing to call Koodo to go through the process of obtaining the SK/MB plan either. Although it admittedly may not take long, it's all a matter of preference.

It is nice to have a deal like this in the maritimes where you can just walk in, ask for it, and that be that. Typically our plans are absolute garbage.

Yeah, I can't say this seems that great, many people have better specs for the same money. I have fido 3gb and unlimited everything else for $50 on one line and $55 on the other.

Interesting. Looks like Virgin has a 3 GB add-on for $30 flat, so total with base Silver plan would be $59. Does anyone know if the 10% BYOP discount would apply to the total of $59 (i.e. including the add-on), or just the monthly amount of $29?
