why this post had so many down vote? If you dont get the offer, it is your problem, not the OP's.

I checked my account, nothing there. Maybe because I have a dirt cheap SK plan?
Pixel 2XL is a good deal, XR is ok, p20 is cold...
It's a pretty bad deal cause you get $199 credit ($33 monthly for 6 months) when you upgrade on tab large or higher with plans starting at $80.
The devices are cheaper on tab medium or below and you keep your existing plan.

You still get 150$ on tab medium with plans over 45$.
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.

The problem is that Koodo is really ramping up changes to what is Medium, Large, etc and doing it every few months.

Not long ago, $35 was a Medium, then it was $40, then $45 and nowI believe $50 is required for Medium ($45 isn't a real plan) and in April it'll probably be $55. But the end of 2019, Medium might be $80-$100.

These "crazy deal" phone offers are designed to get people to upgrade their old, value-packed plans and move to a junk plan for $15-$20 more. It's turning into a major scam.

But isn't the base Medium plan $50 now for plan upgrades or new lines?

But only if you current Medium plan still qualifies as Medium for upgrades, otherwise you have to move up to $50.

Further to the comment above, the $200 credit that they offered me applied on tab small or medium with my current plans.

One account had the $40 PM migration plan and the other has the $45/4GB.

They were also waiving the connection fee if I process the upgrade online which I believe is a standard offering.

No credit on my account but have gotten $150 each on two P20s and the $310 P20 pro deal all within 6 months. I guess I am maxed out on the credits for the year.

However, you're limited to receiving a maximum of $300 in bill credits per calendar year.

But is the $300 bill credit max only for referrals or does it include other reasons for bill credits too?

If we're talking account login and YMMV, I logged in and my line has a $200 online credit and I can get the S9 for $0 up front on a tab medium or $150 up front for the S9+ on medium or $0 up front on a large.

Think I'll get the S9+.

Cheers

It's very correct, I had a $35 Medium plan and order to get a new iPhone 8 on BF I had to upgrade to at least a $45 plan to get a Medium tab (the system would not let me keep my old Medium plan - I even called and confirmed), so stuff your "misinformation" BS.

I think you're confused, as you can stay on an old $35 Medium plan (which is now Small according to Koodo) and pay the higher Small upfront fee. That's not even close to what I am referring to, as you're now Small, *not* Medium.

Koodo's sole intent on offering these "low-cost phones" is to ride you up their ever-increasing price structure every few upgrades. Their "Medium" and "Large" plans now have planned obsolescence built-in and the "minimum cost" increases with regularity.

:facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Try that with a $35 (or lower) Medium plan and see how well it works.

Jesus, $45 is Medium now and I think they're also waiving $40 now due to complaints. :rolleyes:

you must belong to the regular koodo customers....

this is rfd... most ppl migrated over from pm and can get the good phone deals and keep their $35/40/45 plans on medium... there was hundreds of pages and many opportunities to join the "pm migration to koodo club"..lol

so it is far from a scam..

i am not confused at all and know exactly how these tabs work..
