If it is online only, then it is not available in stores. Often due to inventory levels preventing stock to be available at all stores.

Here's another question. What's the price on the Galaxy A5 in store on a small or medium tab?

Unless blue in colour, likely the same as online.

If it's a black phone will it still be the same as the online deal? Nine dollars a month for 24 months on a small tab? I did some looking online on my husbands account. I am on his account.

If you are looking for the A5, the deal at Wowmobile is much better, https://www.wowmobile.ca/en/smartphones/m703477/samsung-galaxy-a5-2017/
Same price for koodo and $175 giftcard. They seem to have black color only, and that is for a new line. If you are upgrading or getting a tab, the price is the same with Koodo.

Fine print says "select new 2 year activations". I'd check with Wow to see if it's available to existing customers signing up for a tab or new customers only.

@ivan: I said "a new line", otherwise I would upgrade myself.

I'm confused. Where is the Galaxy A5 available on a tab $9? How do I get this? When I go on webstore, tab pricing doesn't show. This is a blue colour exclusive?

Retailers who price match (BestBuy Mobile, The Mobile Shop, Wow) won't price match a different colour, and last I heard, The Mobile Shop won't carry both colours on Koodo.

@titaniumtux,
   This is what I see when I select the link you provided and choose blue:

@David. That's exactly what I see. I myself decided to order online.

@David: I get the error message when I click on the blue colour. How can I see the promotion with the reduced tab for the blue colour?

@titaniumtux,

Using IE11. Also tried Opera browser on my Android phone. I still can't see the deal.

Edit: tried Chrome browser on Android, I get same error message.
