When you're on the spending limiy program you are not eligible for a Tab or Tab Plus. You'll have to wait until you are no longer on the spending limt program which I believe is 6 months to a year
it says online that I can receive up to 175 on the basic tab

And if I'm waiting for that long, how am I gonna become a part of the tab if I would have to pay the full price for the phone, that makes 0 sense

It's not up to you to be on the spending limit. It's depending on the results of the credit check.
So, you might get full Tab or the spending limit program ( there are 2 different kind - one with $175 tab and the other with $0 tab). 
Or if Koodo decided your credit check is not good enough, you won't be able to use the tab. Also they can't put you on the postpaid/ monthly plan. (your only option will be on the prepaid plan.)
I know you want to use the Tab to buy a phone, but this is how the program works.

Go to the nearest Koodo with proper ID for credit check, you never know you might be able to get full Tab from Koodo.

You will be taken off the  spending limit after 6 months of on-time payment in full.
And then you will be able to use the tab. Right now you can only put 175 of the phones value on a tab.
12 months of payment in full and on-time and you can use the tab plus.
Hope this helps

When the spending limit is removed, you are able to get a better tab, and Koodo won't cut your service right away when you don't pay your bill on time, and the maximum amount you can owe is no longer capped.

If you are on the spending limit, you are "capped" to have $0 tab or $175 tab (not full tab amount)
I think that what he meant.

You mentioned "you pay your bill every couple of months with a few hundred".
Did you make payment arrangement with Koodo? If your spending limit was removed under this condition, you should be ok.

And,don't worry about those badge thing 🙂  It's just gaming and fun for some ppl 😉
