Galaxy S8 referral


Userlevel 2
I referred my brother to Koodo and he bought a Galaxy S8 from Best Buy in Red deer, AB. I just got my 50 dollar bill credit on my account. It took about 5 weeks to receive the credit. He likes the phone as he was upgrading from S3.I referred him because he was with Telus for over 10 years and he was paying double what he pays now. He bought the phone out right, so there is no tab.

There is no official word yet. Keep watch on the forums here and if they're carrying it you will see an article about it.

It's being released to Telus and it's likely Koodo will get it too. We will just have to wait and see!

To my recollection, Koodo does not do pre-orders, so any announcement would occur at or near general release day.

I think Koodo does do pre-orders. I swear I remember pre-ordering the S8+ and got the Gear VR as a pre-order.gift.

I no longer own that pile of turd, as I went through two of them with pink displays before giving up on it. I do remember I got it via pre-order though.

I suspect that Koodo may not end up carrying the Note 8, as it's priced above the price point of most Koodo clients (aka, they won't sell very many). That's only a guess though, I have been known to be wrong on occasion. Or, if you ask my wife......often...

They are available for pre-order at Best Buy under Koodo so that you can get the bonus items. They may be doing it a different round about way though. I don't understand why they are not being advertised with the rest, but it is on their website and in store. They put the max on the tab but it still costs up front $750. Koodo website says nothing, and other retailers have no information on the Note 8 pre-order even though the bonus item page at samsung has those retailers populated on the drop down list.

Thanks, Just read Samsung site.. I left them a note about Koodo as well. It's weird they hadn't published the promo on note 8. A sentence about Canadian carriers on Samsung.ca website on this product.

Did they say no you can only get the promo at time of purchase? The note 8 will be available through Koodo as an online only purchase.

Samsung store, Bell mobility and a list of others. I didn't have the discussion with Samsung rep from West Ed store. What ever, it's their product and they make the weird rules.

Was it this deal? "Get a high speed Tab E 8” LTE bonus.gift* (valued at $288) when you buy the new Galaxy S8 | S8+"? If so that promo ended August 10th.
