Hello, 

Currently, I have an Iphone 4 and my contract has ended.  I am waiting to get the Samsung Galaxy S5. Is it going to be on sale soon?  If so, when and how much will I have to pay?  Currently, it is $275 after the $360 has been reduced.  I was told a few weeks ago by a rep at the Koodoo kiosk in the Lansdowne Mall in Peterborough, Ont, that is coming on sale.  However, she didn't know when or how much it was going to be.

Hi Rebecca, I think she may have just guessed. My guess is around the Christmas season if the price does drop. However someone else here might be able to chime in and help you out. :)

Steve this is an offer specifically for you.
This can not be shared with others.
Only customers who receive a promo text can receive the deal.

But again yes I'm sure the one will have some offers around christmas time.

Oh ! Ok, sorry! My mistake.

Its just that DIANA told me that it was available to EVERYONE that's why she didn't require my promo #

we dont need the code at my store either.
we just look at the text itself and give you the promo.
But we don't give it to people who don't have the text.
They are sent to specific people for specific reasons.
Yours was likely because your tab balance is so low.

So the total cost for the Samsung s5 or iPhone 5s is $100 on the tab? I have also received the text message.

100 dollars on a TAB and then 15$ a month to pay for the phone over 2 years.
Your "tab charge"

I don't think it's a great deal then you save about $175. It would be better for someone who wants those specific phones. I'll wait on it.

Ya I could have picked up the 5s for $299. no charger, paper clip sim key, no ear phones, locked to Rogers , no warantee, no extended warantee , with decorative nic in screen.
All of which came with a 15 day in store Pawn Shop credit only, "if I did not work or if it was branded stolen or could not be unlocked"

Why not get the LG G3 instead? Faster phone, 32 GB hard drive, better display, $0 down

Why not get the Alcatel flip?
Physical keyboard, 0 down and only 4 dollars a month.

Why not get the Galaxy S6 ! Faster than all the phones we've listed.

It's personal preference my friend.
For anyone who would like the 5S or the S5 this is a great deal.

Die hard android user, looking for iPhone Change, I think 5s is good phone for what I need it to do for me.
I shopped around for used, but can only put so much time and effort into that before trying to save a dollar, costs me more than what it's worth.
Apple is certainly a good product producing company that KOODO complements with its Superior Customer Services and never ending strides in Carrier Leadership, in domain of Customer Satisfaction.
This is what my 5S represents to me, in pride of ownership.
Maybe to some a $175.00 discount is the difference to owning the 5S or not. To others it may seen a meager pultry sum.
For me it was the difference between purchase now and enjoying, or continue looking , until such time, that time itself has devalued, an never ending aging product.

Well that's true also. The wait can be annoying but its your choice in the end. I prefer androids myself because they're open source and I'm studying computer science.

When I asked this question, I was sent a message saying it would be on sale yesterday for $100 on the tab. I had explained that I was not a koodoo member and so I wasn't able to have the promo price. I am now a koodoo member. I bought my phone in Peterborough, Ont at the .WOW" kiosk and they checked with koodoo to see if I could have it. Obviously not, so I paid the $275 plus tax and data and accessories.
