Do any supermarkets/grocery stores like Sobeys sell Prepaid SIM cards?

Ash of Fairview Mall, Toronto, Best Buy Mobile, answered the phone when I called and told me he would do new activation and port-in. He told me to "come on in". I reconfirmed on the phone with him that he would do new activation and will do port-in before I drove there. I was physically at the store then he told me no new activation for Koodo, and he can't port-in for VOIP. I have receipt as I just got ported-in from a different Best Buy for a VOIP number. He then made up some excuse and said it is up to the store's discretion to activate a line for you or not. If you port to Fido or Virgin I will activate it. Such horrible customer service. No wonder why Amazon is killing Best Buy.

It could be their policy to open the box. But, make sure they do not switch on the device. As soon as they switch on, the the setup process consumes more than 50MB data which voids your return without charge condition. The rep did that in a hurry even before I could say something. I switched on the device after coming home and saw it has already consumed 92 MB. Now, I'm pissed...
The only way that could happen was if the phone had the SIM installed in it already... which involves a lot more than just opening the box and turning it on

Sorry for the rookie question, but I'm looking for some confirmation - I jumped on this deal. If I cancel a day later will Best Buy claw back the gift card?

The rep opened the box in front of me, installed the SIM and switched on the device and started setting up.
I had to stop her saying that I can do that. All this took 94 MB of data usage.

Use your GC to buy a prepaid visa card before cancelling. Just to be safe.

It's there under the Trial period section of the agreement. 15 day - no charge return is subjected to usage of 30 voice minutes, 50 messages or 50 mb of data. Over these limits, we will be charged per day depending on the plan. Even though the charge per day is less, it should for what we used and not their tactics.

Not sure, but best buy might state this clause to reject returns as well.
Below is the text from agreement. It seems pretty clear to me that limits only relate to service charges (and if they will be waived). Phone can be refunded (and agreement cancelled) within 15 days if in near new condition with original packaging. Best Buy may try to use the clause to reject a return, but it won't hold up with savvy consumers as wording is clear enough.

Is there a trial period?
If you're not satisfied with your phone or the service, you can
return the phone for a full refund and cancel the service within
15 days of the start of your service. You won't be charged for
the service unless you've used more than 30 voice minutes or
50 text messages or 50 MB of data. Over those limits, we'll
only charge for the number of days before cancellation, based
on your monthly plan, plus any pay-per-use services used. If
you're a person with a disability, this trial period is extended to 30
days and the usage limits before charges apply are doubled. The
phone must be returned in near new condition with the original
packaging.
