Can anyone tell me how long I will stay on the spending limit program? I was a longtime prepaid customer who got an offer to switch to postpaid just over a month ago. Ideally I would like to add another line to my account so we can bring my fiancées number from prepaid as well. My credit isn't ideal, thus the reason I have a spending limit. I'm just curious how long you have to build your credit with Koodo before getting off the spending limit?

At the moment it should be 6 months of good service before being assessed and removed.

Honestly, I don't know how the credit system work. From what I heard, It will be 9-12 months. It is also depended on your credit history with banks and other institutions.

"Removing the spending limit from your account

Your account will be reviewed after 6 months. If you have a good payment history, then we'll remove the spending limit from your account. You'll get a text from us when this happens.

Just so you know: Good payment means you haven’t missed a payment, and your account hasn’t been disconnected or cancelled for non-payment."

Here's the scoop...

  1. First three months (90 days), you're capped at 3 lines. After that, without any spending limit, you can go up to five or six.
  2. If you have a spending limit, you may be required to pay up the phone tab upon activation.
  3. Kick off spending limits very fast by consistently getting large Koodo bills and paying them on time. If you spend $100+ per month on Koodo service (plans, phone tabs, overage and add-on fees, tab payoffs, etc.). If circumstances allow you to frequently incur large Koodo invoices, you'll quickly find yourself without any spending limits, meaning you could grab six flagships on six lines, all on tab large plans if you so choose.
