Has anyone done the next-day cancellation with Best Buy and successfully bought from them subsequently? (As in, has anyone done the cancellation and NOT been blacklisted?)

Conversely, anyone out there on the BB blacklist?

I was told that for Koodo you need to stay with them for at least 3 months.

I've been asking similar questions all through the thread tonight and no answer so I guess no one really knows until they try and get denied.

Either way I'm going to wait till the afternoon till cancel to see if I can potentially get another phone through Walmart or BB.

My mom just ordered the S8 online from Koodo on a new activation. Can she just upgrade to the S9 from Bestbuy?
I'd say your best bet is to sign up for a new activation in-store for the S9 - upgrades only occur once the tab is paid off and you won't be able to pay off the tab online until after 3 months. You have a 15 day return window for the S8 on new activation so you won't receive any charges if you cancel right when you get it (you might get long wait times on the phone though so prepare for that).

Anyone know how long this offer will last? I ordered CPO iPhone 8 and thought its better to return that and sign to this one. Any thought?
Offers change so often during these sales that you can never know when it'll end. I'd say this goes on until Boxing Day but stock will be your main problem going into it later in the season. If there's stock at your local Best Buy, I'd say sign up now and return the CPO iPhone 8 if you don't want to pay anything for the CPO (if that was a new activation).

Any idea when this deal is going on for? I don't get back into Canada until the night of the 30th :(
Nobody can say for sure but I would bet that either the sale or the stock will be done with come the 30th - best bet is to get someone to do it for you!

It's still on, but the supply at each location is the issue. I haven't heard of any shortages today, but who knows about tomorrow, let alone next week.
Are there any details on when the deal officially commences, like deep in some fine print on a flyer somewhere?

Thanks for the reply. I was in middle of cancelling process and this deal showed up today. Wish I can ask to return instead cancel and pay off the phone. Or if not I might just add a line and sell the CPO one.

Hello all, Im new to this stuff but after reading this thread im still confused and have questions:
So my situation is that, Im with bell right now (my contract just ended today - im paying $40 per month) and Im planning to get a new phone. Im interested in getting this deal.

My question is how much do I pay per month if I get this deal??
And I keep seeing this "cancel" thing, what is that? Why would you cancel?

If someone could explain it, that would be very helpful. Thanks.

Any phone you get right now should be unlocked. Plus you can unlock yourself once you sign up the self-serve.

Welcome to 2018. No such thing as locked phones at retail in Canada.

Why do you think phones come locked after Dec 2017?

Sorry for the wording there - you can definitely return the phone once it's been shipped to you. See more info here.

You won't get any charges since the phone / SIM obviously wasn't used (or even delivered yet). That way, you effectively get the S9 without paying a cent for the S8 since you returned it.

To sum it all up, if you cancel the S8, you will end up cancelling the plan but paying the tab balance (and any applicable charges) for the S8.
If you return the S8, you will return the phone and plan with no harm/charges done.

I wouldn't advise adding a line since you'll take a credit hit, I'd rather return the phone altogether and just get the the S9.
