I want to upgrade to a new phone because I have a positive tab balance but Koodo doesn't offer the gift card promo to existing customers. Do 3rd party retailers such as mobile shop and best buy mobile offer gift cards for upgrades?

If you have positive tab that would be an incentive. If you have a decent phone you can also trade it in and get some money for it.

You would need to contact the specific 3rd party retailer to find out.

Mobile Shop did have gift cards for upgrades on Telus/Koodo twice this year already but there's nothing going on right now. The carrier pays us for those promotions.

We have an excellent Scratch and win promo on top of any advertised GC but it's only for new activations on select phones.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for the reply!
Would you happen to know if the mobile shop has these offers often and if so would you happen to know the next promo? I might have missed the most recent offering because I would of jumped on the deal. How much were the gift cards worth?

This was the first year they decided to do it for us and it was lukewarm but it was a nice way to seal the deal for some customers. It was $50 for all Telus renewals and $50 for -most- Koodo Tab redemptions back in February/March. Then we had another one for the end of June, where all Koodo smartphones got $100 in gift cards for Tab redemptions!

Don't worry, I'll post an update when, and if, upgrades become eligible for a promotion again.
