I have gotten my credit card about a week ago, and it is fresh, just wondering how much deposit I should have in order to be eligible for a tab? I am thinking of a Moto G 3rd 7$+the 30$ plan for the network which in overall it will cost me around 41$ monthly.

You will have to go to a Koodo kiosk and they will run a credit check and determine what would be required

Easy.  Find a used phone online or from a friend.  

Or save up your money until you have enough?
Isnt that what you do when you cant afford something?  You save up.

I thought you asked

it means that I not eligible for a tab and I should pay for the cost of the mobile entirely. what am I suppose to do now?
Did you ask the Kiosk about a deposit option?
I dont think they do deposits.  All they have is the spending limit program

let me ask you in this way; a friend of mind wants to use her credit card for me to buy that plan mentioned, but currently she has a limited amount of deposit in it, so she have told me to ask a Koodo assistant for finding out the answer, no one have told me a clear answer so far even at those two kiosks where I asked them in person!!

I am pretty sure there are no deposits for Koodo.

If you qualify you may be placed on the spending limit program which means you cannot get a phone on tab.

Also the address on the credit card must match your home address on your account for payments to be successful
