I have a pay as you go android and added some bonus talk booster minutes a couple months ago from my top up balance.  I notice those minutes are being depleted before my original talk booster minutes are.  I know minutes are minutes but why wouldn't the original minutes be used up before the new ones I just added?

I believe its just the way the system handles it so that your not left with bonus minutes after using up all of the regular minutes as this may confuse ppl or the system so better to get those bonus minutes used up first and be left with your regular minutes.

but minutes are minutes right?  They are the same no matter what so why aren't they just added on to the minutes you already have and just have one total as opposed to multiple amount of minutes all being used separately?  I think it is more confusing this way

It may be more complicated for you, but I think system-wise for Koodo it's more easy to deal with this hat way.

Minutes are minutes, for sure. If you used up all the regular ones first, you'd just be left with "bonus" minutes some time down the road, long after the bonus conditions have disappeared, right?

Some folks might be a little upset at that point that they couldn't purchase any more bonus minutes, but only the "overpriced" regular ones.

That's probably the corporate cellthink on the matter.
