Bought iPhone 6 at TMS on the 23rd and tried to put my line on the seasonal hold as I was thinking about buying more phone from TMS.

I called 3 times tonight, but was denied of seasonal hold by all three agents I spoke to. I found out why as the 3rd agent said one of the agents I spoke to previously left a note saying “this customer is not eligible for a seasonal hold until after 90 days”. Basically, the note stays in the system permanently for any customer service rep to see. I asked nicely each time, but I don’t think I will have a chance of getting a seasonal hold.

So what I do now? I’m only interested in keeping the phone, not staying with Koodo.

Return the phone to TMS? Or should I cancel it and pay off the tab (small $240)? If I pay off the tab, can I still buy phone from TMS? Or will they blacklist me and will not sell phones in the future? Anyone know?

I'd cancel if you aren't staying. I did it last year with no harm

1. Call again in couple of days.
2. Boxing week sale is 1 month away. You can just pay a month of service and cancel after getting more phone at TMS. There is no credit check again if you add another number to an existing Koodo account.
3. You can use WOW or WM if you cancel now.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $37 5GB, $13 250MB, 2x $8 50min/50text, Fido $5 4GB data only plan,
Zoomer $36 loyalty 4GB plan, $0 FPL home phone. Have a better and better day!

So I think I got some wrong information from a Koodo agent....

I did a phone upgrade. I am keeping my plan. I just want to pay off my TAB but the agent says I need to wait 90 days or Koodo claws back my PC points. Surely this isn't correct, right??

@embguy, I can try in a couple of days, but there is a note under my name. So even if I add another line for Boxing Day sale, I think I will still be denied of a seasonal hold for a new line because of the note which stays in the system.

I wonder if I’m better off returning the phone to TMS so that they will not have my record when I purchase the same iPhone 6 or better one (hoping for iPhone 6s or 7) for Boxing Day. I know I will have to do credit check again.

@FlightCanada, have u bought a phone from TMS since u had canceled iyour line?

I’m just worried that TMS will not sell phones to me in the future if they find out I have cancelled my line. That’s my biggest worry. I thought someone mentioned it in this thread before.

Not sure what you're hoping to achieve. If you're going to keep your plan long-term, why not wait the 90 days to pay off the tab?

You can get a loyalty agent (supervisor) to zero-out your device balance and apply it as an account charge. This will not claw back the PC points, and TMS won't get clawed back as long as you don't cancel the monthly service within 90 days.

I got the same thing too! It appears she waived the $15 SIM card too. BUT mine has to be shipped in from somewhere else so earliest arrival time would be Wed. :(

On the same day but at a different location (Westboro's Superstore in Ottawa), I got the G6 for $0 on medium tab + 100K points. I'll cancel this line today and hope for the best!

Felt guilty about cancelling right away. Second call to customer service got me on a seasonal hold. If guess if I get some referrals, that will pay off the 3 months hold.

Just checked TMS website. The iPhone 6 and A5 still have 250k PC points offer. iPhone 6s 200k PC points.

The iPhone 6 with 250k pts on a Koodo HUP is unreal. I got loyalty to knock off $50 on Moto G4 Plus device balance to upgrade to an iPhone 6, and this is x2 (on two lines, already on AB numbers). This is very accommodating, and works out better for me than chasing after referral credits. Not only that, but some of the 90 day haul overlaps the Moto G4 Plus 90 day haul.

Success with iP6s and 200k PC points earlier today but as a match for BB's deal. Wonder if this will be on tomorrow.

Let hope that TMS will extend this promo from Cyber Monday to the whole Cyber week!

Depends on the carrier. Since Koodo's referrals were only $25 a piece, that means there's not much to go down. My guess is they'll keep the PC points until end of month.

Thanks OP! Got an LG G6 with 100K points that were immediately used to discount the small tab upfront fee ($120 - $100 worth of points). Should work out to $20 (upfront) + $240 (when cancelling the tab) + taxes and whatnot.

I'm hoping that by using the points to drop the upfront pricing, there won't be much of a concern with claw back after the cancellation.
