Samsung A8 $0 small tab - 200,000pts

Deal Link:
Retailer:
TMS
put it simple as the following eqation:

upfront 0 + tab small 10 per month (x24month) + 25 month plan (cancel anytime) + 35 activation +tax - 200,000pts (200value) - 50,000pts (optional tradein old phone) = maybe less than 55 if cancel it right away...

I strongly believe this A8 value has been underestimated and deserved to be posted alone considering Costco A5 at 99 is still a hot deal. This phone is a mid range one (not really A5 successor but simple version of s8) with two front selfie lenses. Decent glass body, IP68 rated.

two front cameras https://www.samsung.com/levant/support/ ... he-camera/

edit: my final bill after immediate cancellation is 310.81 (240+35+2.xx+tax). So the net cost of the phone is 310.81- 250 =60.81.

As you stated, a solid phone. If I needed one, I would grab one.
A8 is not trending here as it is not easy to resell, for the usual churners anything S series is good, rarely anyone would consider an A series on kijiji or other sites.
When you upvote my posts, this is what happens:
My wife loves me more😂, my car goes faster😎, my house becomes bigger😐, My boss gives me a raise😁.

Fact check, none of the above is valid.

Koodo website says A8 is Certified Pre-owned. TMS is selling the same or those are brand new?

Is it considered an upgrade comparing to the S7 edge?

There is recent news of Koodo changing tab clauses to not allow plan cancellation right after getting phone . Need a phone for my wife. A8 is fine for her but she is already on PM and so she will cancel a day after signing up. not sure if we should buy this or not.

In the OP, it mentions a phone trade in program, any details on that as I don't see it posted on the website.

not till the beginning of next year. And if you get the phone in a day or 2, they will have to honour the contract you signed, even if they change their policy overnight.

Is this for new customers only or does it apply to HUP as well?

So basically an old flip phone gets you 50$ too? I think its only an in store credit though right....

Also has anyone here got a new line and cancelled right away and still able to get the 200k pc points ?

yes, any phone. store credit is YMMV. My rep is good and put 50,000 together with 200,000 in the card. so i have $250 altogether. But I know some rep will ask you to use 50,000 right away in TMS.
