Last minute decision - Koodo or Telus

Let's see if I can get a response before midnight :)

So here are my options:

Koodo
$55 for 8 gb per month
Iphone Xr
$220 upfront with $15 for 24 months
I have a $150 credit.

Telus
$67.60 for 10 gb per month
Iphone Xr
$13 for 24 months.

Thoughts?
I'm leaning towards Koodo only because I don't really want to pay a lot more for data.

I'll have to decide in about 10 minutes :P

Let's see if there's any RFD nighthawks

Looks like Koodo's website shut down before 12 am.
So, I guess that deal is off of the table.

Too bad :(

It was a deal offered by Koodo as a special for me. I got a text message with this offer.
Apparently, the marketing department knows about these offers as they make them available to 'certain' customers etc etc
But, if you call in, the supervisors/managers will not be able to help you with these special deals as they tell me they don't have access to them or can make authorizations. I don't actually know if that's true or not.

Did the koodo $55 include the $15 tab payment? Or is it $55+15 ?

It was $55 + $15.

I tried to make the purchase before midnight when the sale ended. I didn't know the website would shut down beforehand. So, I guess it's either go to Telus OR wait for black Friday deals and use my $150 tab credit then.

BF is still some time away. Make sure the credit is valid till then. They usually gave me 1 month to use the credit

Ah!
Good to know! Thanks for your advice.
Do you think they would still honor the Iphone XR deal given that the website died before August 26th was over?
I'm guessing they don't really care :P
