As a consequence $300 - 100 (additional GC) + $14 (for one month warranty) = $214 all in.
Shit, I declined the $14 month geek squad warranty when they offered it. Do you know if it's only your local store that offers $100 GC and free screen protector? In addition, is the geek squad warranty service by monthly and not yearly?

They only offered screen protector when I signed up. Seems to be YMMV.

No idea if it's nationwide. It's obly charged monthly I paid the 14 upfront for the first month.

Was at Best Buy South Van Marine Dr. this morning, very quiet there around 11am. iPhone 8 They had 4 or 5 gold and space grey ones in stock. Renewals included. Min. $60 plan on Fido. They said sale might end today. This is same as the BF sale they had. also saw some prepaid Visas and Mastercards near the checkout.

I have a medium pulse plan with the lg g5... $75 10gb with 25% discount bringing the plan to $63 a month taxes in. The discount is till April 2019 when my contract officially renews and my phone balance becomes zero. However a few things,

I had to fight with Fido for 2 months to get this plan. And it expired in April and then the bill goes back to $75

Been with Fido for 6 years

April is a horrible time to renew contracts since no promotions so decided to pay off the phone right now and start the cycle around boxing day and black friday

Have no problems paying the remaining $100 on the phone today and switching to a different provider.

Advice?

Public Mobile is instant, Bell/Virgin prepaid also works but may have issues with the cancellation date according to my previous experience.
can we port online or do we have to call public mobile to port our koodo number?

Just an update.
Went to BB in south Etobicoke (Sherway).

I have a 6GB $49/mth plan via cellphoneman.ca -- manitoba plan.

I couldn't get the deal.

I tried to get a brand new line to deactivate tomorrow, they're no longer giving out these deals on new plans.

Anyone have luck or suggestions on how to get the deal?

Koodo doesn't have an option to pay your tab immediately as I'm aware of, it always goes on your next bill in which case that would put you over whatever normal credit range they have...
Thanks for the input, however, the previous ones had already been billed & paid for in November's bill, the 2 upgrades I made in December is due to be billed in the next couple of days. So essentially, only $720 (360*2) is on credit on top of my regular charges.

They were not enthusiastic about matching and I fully expected them to deny it as some of the ad is a bit vague (e.g. "on select 2-year Medium/Gold Plans", no mention of whether or not it applies to HUP, etc.) but I probably could have asked them to call Best Buy to confirm the details if they refused to budge.
Yeah these guys were being difficult. They wouldn't do the HUP because it doesn't show and they refused to call Best Buy because that is not what they do and have to show their IT department (for the extra points) an advertisement to be able to match.

Coventry Hills Superstore. Avoid.

If you're planning on cancelling by porting over to PM then yes you need to buy a sim. You could get the sim for free if you activate it in store at walmart, London Drugs, TMS or WOW, thats what I did.

Does anyone have a pic of Bestbuy's pricing sheet for this offer?
