Hi Koodo team, there are lots of new incoming students who would be reaching Canada in end of August or early September but the double double promo ends on August 7. As a returning student, I would like to stay with Koodo but it seems some other carrier would give me a better deal when I'll be returning mid August.

Kindly extend the promo dates OR allow to buy SIM+Plan online without phone. We are ready to pay shipping fee for that. Virgin and others already allows to buy Plan+SIM from their webstore.

Yes, but I guess you need to give option of bundling up SIM+Plan as well at the webstore. I have seen lots of people order SIM+Plan with phone online as they don't have choice. As soon as their order is delivered, they call up customer service to return the phone via self-addressed envelope keeping the plan & SIM. I think if Koodo implements this bundle, it would bring down their returned items cost.

All you have to do is purchase the sim card online and when you receive it, call to activate. It's as simple as that. Or just go into a store, buy a sim card and call and activate. It's a simple process. Just get the plan now.

As I mentioned earlier, I am not in the country and will be returning Mid August so physically going and buying SIM card is not possible.

As for the other option Fine, I'll order the SIM card and it will reach my place but I can't activate the SIM & plan till I am back in Canada. When I'll get back to activate it, the promo will be over.

International students? I don't believe they qualify for postpaid services and if so, they account for a very small percentage of students especially when they definitely all won't join Koodo.

If you mean students on vacation, that probably accounts for an even smaller percentage, many of whom already have a cell phone plan and if already with Koodo, can change their plans online. If leaving before, just sign up then. It sucks that you have to pay for a a certain period of service that you're not going to use but thats what other peoples situations are who are currently going on vacation; they cant just stop their billing. At least you'll have an awesome plan since all carriers are currently changing to less value, more expensive plans.

Most likely Koodo will have another promotion, if not extend this one as they still don't have any back to school promotions and they basically do every year.
