I will itemize and provide a step by step to help the community trying to buy this phone. See the following:

S10+
$700 on Tab Large
Discount Trade in for any $0 phone : $360 (One store said they will take any phone as long as it has IMEI number on it since they recycle it and other store said phone needs to turn on - YMMV)
Activation Fee: $35
Geek Squad Protection Discount: $100 (Signup for 3 months of Geek Squad Protection - YMMV)
Google Home : Free for new customers (Sell for $100 on CL)
Remaining Balance on Tab: $480
Total = $700-360-100+35+480+48= 803 plus tax = $899 and $799if you sell google home.

S10
$550 on Tab Large
Discount Trade in for any $0 phone : $320 (One store said they will take any phone as long as it has IMEI number on it since they recycle it and other store said phone needs to turn on - YMMV)
Activation Fee: $35
Geek Squad Protection Discount: $100 (Signup for 3 months at $16 x 3 = $48 of Geek Squad Protection - YMMV)
Google Home : Free for new customers (Sell for $100 on CL)
Remaining Balance on Tab: $480
Total = $550-320-100+35+480+48= 693 plus tax = $776 and $676 if you sell google home.

You can also negotiate and see if they can throw a free case in the deal as well. - YMMV.

S10+ is about $125 more than the regular S10. I am not a big fan of dual cutout on 10+ but battery is quite a bit better. Depends on what you are looking for.

Hope this helps.

Where can I find out if a phone is blacklisted or not? Thanks
devicecheck.ca

On a side note, it should be obvious but in case anyone was confused, the BestBuy $320/$360 trade in offer is for people signing up on a plan, not buying it outright, & only applies to S10 lineup, not any other phones.

Went to best buy. The phone need to be over $0 value in order to get the $340 or $360 discount
My phone has $0 value (bought 4 or 5 yrs ago, even back then it was only $200 brand new), they could not even find my phone on their system so theres a option for Other or something like that. I believe the rep at your store was not fully aware of how to process this deal. I got the $360 trade in offer with no hassle

The bestbuy website says
"SAVE UP TO $360 and get up to a $400 Best Buy gift card when you trade in any phone with a 2-year plan.*"

Do you get 360 + value of your phone when you do a trade in? or you only get 360 only
Any phone should get minumum $360 for S10+ on a 2 yr contract or Koodo tab, but the max value you can get is $400. Example, you have a phone with a $100 trade in value, they will not give you $360 + $100 = $460, they will give you only $400.

So if you have a good phone, its kind of not worth it since you would only get $40 more than any crap phone. You should sell your good phone yourself, get a crappy phone off kijiji or value village & trade it in for $360.

With regards to the Bestbuy deal...

Can someone confirm this can be any Canadian phone that isn't blacklisted? Person I spoke to wasn't sure.

Also could I get this deal by upgrading on Koodo Small tab?
In my case yes, I had a phone worth $0, they still gave me $360 off the S10+, on Koodo medium tab. I don't know if it works for small tab but I assume yes

Isn't the medium tab now 55$ so with my 45$ plan I won't be eligible on the Medium Tab, correct?

So you were able to get a Google Home? And I'm assuming it was a mini? This is where they told me the Google Home was not included. At that point, I thought it was a full google home as well.
