Yes you can go to bestbuy and upgrade. Youll be paying 15 ontop of your plan. Only disadvantage of activating in a store is you have to pay a 35 dollar connection fee which is waived if you do it online with the Koodo website. However 150 gc >> 35 activation..
Not gone through this whole thread but I could not get the upgrade and keep the 60$ 10 gig plan. BB said the only option was 75$ for 10 gigs then the 15 tab on top.

I upgraded & paid my tab 4 times on each of the 2 lines in my account since Black Friday and never cancelled any services, just upgraded > paid tab > repeated. Went to Best Buy this morning with 0 balance & 0 tab on my account to get the S9 but upgrade won't go through even though I did not have a tab, not even on a new line activation. Best Buy agent calls Koodo to find out what was going on and was told there had been a restriction placed on my account which prevents me from buying new phones.
Don't we have to wait 90 days to pay off the tab?

This is a great phone, upgraded from a LG G6. Noticeably faster, better screen and display resolution. First thing I did was removed Bixby, enhanced the resolution to 4k, and enabled Dolby Atmos for better sound. Now ordering a Spigen case from Amazon to cover up the purple model that I had to settle for lol.

Anybody in GVRD find iPhone 8 in stock this morning? Why don’t these guys pick up their phones...
Just a wild guess but maybe they don't want to answer ur calls bc they're first helping customers who went to those locations.

Bramalea Best Buy(Not the mobile one) has few S9 and iP8 left in stock(@2:30 PM EST) as per the rep. They have all colours though.

The rep was able to add international min for $0. Not sure if it is YMMV.

Login to your koodo account and add any phone on a medium tab to cart. Then select add plan. If you see the same plan you have in the list, your plan is eligible for the upgrade.

Can you keep the phone sealed and use a phone that you already have with the new plan that is offered?

Unfortunately, iphone 8 seems to hold better resale value
S9 is way way better phone, its even better phone than Iphone xs or whatever the new iphone is

So I call Koodo when I got home and after being placed on hold, I was told that there was a 90-day policy on upgrades & since I had just recently made upgrades on both lines in the last 10 days, my account is currently under investigation with their credit department. Investigate what I asked? I don't even owe them anything, I upgraded and paid my tabs each time & my account balance is zero. I said if their policy is 90 days, then their system should not allow upgrades in their website that does not meet that criteria to begin with?

I know I may have gone overboard a bit with 8 phones in a span of a month (4 on each line), but I thought I read somewhere here that you're allowed to buy 8 phones per line or something? Has this happen to anyone else? If so, is this a permanent restriction or will the restriction get lifted after 90 days or something?
lol, 8 phones in a month, lol

You do realize, koodo was giving you "activation credit"; you obviously didn't pay full price for the phone... I can't understand what you were trying to say, by saying u have 0 balance, lol..
you abused their discount system and you got banned. it has nothing to do with the 0 balance, lol

So you are looking to sale it eh.....BestBuy will most likely break the seal to make sure the unit is perfect and includes everything in the box.
