CAN SIM-only 2GB Unltd min $59 for $66


I'd it normal that my current plan "CAN SIM-only 2GB Unltd min $59" is being billed at a rate of $66 + tax and fees?

Hey Andrew, Can you take a screenshot of the 3rd page of your Ebill from the PDF view. Dont leave any personal info in the pic .
I've been charged this rate ever since I switched to the plan months ago. Didn't strike me as odd until now for some reason.

In my opinion it looks like a rate-plan tax or some sort of charge with the plan. Mine is like this but it states TAB charge. So im not 100% sure why it doesnt state what the $1+ difference is. I hope an employee can chime in and explain! Sorry that I could not give you an exact answer! My apologies.
I think its making sense now, even though i still feel conned here in a way. I signed up for this rate plan but in doing so had to give up my 10% no tab discount like with all new plans. Even though they were taking the 10% away they must have still been using the after-dicount price in the name of the plan which i find misleading. I thought I was going to be saving a few dollar by switching but it ended up costing me a few dollars more. Gotta love marketing...

That's what I see too, which doesn't make sense to me, so I'm pushing for an answer.

@ Andrew, I will have someone take a look at your account and promise to fix things up if indeed something is incorrect. At this point the best I do is get back to you with an answer on Monday. I hope it's ok.
@Bernard, I'm not in a hurry or anything. I'm just looking to understand if there's a problem or not. I appreciate the help, hopefully I get some answers next week. 

@Chadwick Thanks for the help getting things going.

Hey Andrew, going to try to keep this brief without getting into the nitty gritty....long story short it seems your TAB type somehow switched from SIM only to TAB discount. I don't have an answer as to why. Regardless we reinstated the 10% discount on your account and should see the plan cost to be back at $59. Also credited back the missing months so everything should be straightened  out now. My sincerest apologies for the troubles!

Thanks again for the help Bernard. I was credited the 10% back for the time since I changed plans. However rather than get the plan for $59 as I thought I would, the name of my plan has been changed from "CAN SIM-only 2GB Unltd min $59" to simply "$66".

Assuming that's not a mistake, its not exactly where I had hoped it would go, as I still don't see the logic in offering a promotional sim only plan that has the discount built into the name. But then have me give up my discount to switch to it, meaning there was no way I could have ever gotten that plan for $59 despite its name. I'm not upset, I'm just frustrated/confused with the marketing. The only reason I switched to begin with was because I expected to get extra data for about same price I was paying but instead ended up paying about $8 extra per month.

As mentioned above there doesn't appear to be the 10% discount you mentioned, just a $66 rate.

I would just call and contact a supervisor! Looks like Bernard has done all that can be done from this end. But a supervisor can fix things in real time while on the phone. Which will lead to this being done once and for all and you leave a happy customer 🙂

Understood, thanks. I do appreciate what he's done. Do I just call customer support and ask to speak with a supervisor? I know with most companies you have to be a little pushy to get past the bottom tier of customer support.

I have never been denied or had to push for a supervisor with Koodo, Just explain you have been dealing with some account change issues and your upset and feel a supevisor is your best route. Although, some bottom tier customer reps will do just as much for you. So just feel out the call and do what you gotta do!
