My koodo tab is stuck at 150$.
Why is this the maximum that the tab can reach?
Does Koodo think so little of me as a customer that they cut off this meagre 10% discount on my next phone?

$150 is the maximum a tab can reach. It's nothing personal.

Thank you for answering Ahmad.

Koodo should know that it is very insulting to me, and i'm searching for another provider who will give me a better deal on a new phone.

So your saying that good has been good enough to you that you stuck around for 5 years. But because they aren't going to give you more than $150 positive tab your leaving? You do realize that the positive tab can be combined with any of the other tab amounts so you could essentially get 650 off a phone? Even if you stuck with the new regular tab youd get 510 off a phone which seems like a pretty good deal to me. But if you leave and find someone who gives a much better solution, with all the great things Koodo offers, let me know.

If the only reason you pay for cellphone service is to get a discount off your next phone then you're what's wrong with the economy. You are paying for nationwide voice, text and data service. The credit towards your new phone is a bonus, not a god given right.

"God given right" ???

Here are three articles about how the big three telecom companies (including Telus which owns Koodo) are gouging Canadian consumers, keeping prices up, and keeping competitors out of the market.

Apple also increased the price of their phones, costs for fruits and veggies are also on the rise. A telco provider is a business, a business needs to add value to customers and also be profitable. I'd rather be with a stable Canadian company than a fly by night venture
