Bought HTC One M8 from BestBuy Mobile last week during the free $50 gift card promo. The promo is now changed to a $100 gift card. Is it possible to receive an additional $50 credit or gift card? Otherwise, could I not just refund my purchase and repurchase this week? Or is this an issue I should bring up with BestBuy Mobile instead?

Hi there... Prices and promotions change without any notice...

It is like when u put gas in your car and then the day after you see it drops by some cents, hard to get a price match right?

But in this case if you feel like going through a return process to get the extra 50$, it is really up to u... What you have to ask is if the gift card u got was only because it was a new activation or because it was an upgrade...

I don't think there is a way to get the new activation present. Since you activated with a 50$ new activation gift, you can't get a new new activation gift as it will no longer be a new activation. You really shouldn't be that disappointed, I have been with Koodo  for years and never got any activation or renewal present, so take what you already got and be happy.

Since the promo was through BestBuy, you'd have to bring this up with them. I don't know what their policy is in this situation.

BestBuy sometimes doesn't limit gift cards to new activations.
