You can add data boosters to your account:
$30, 1 GB of data
$20, 500 MB
$10, 100 MB

Promos will come and go. If you didnt get one sent to you then you cant get anything special. The usual promos for prepaid are ones to switch to Koodo postpaid and get a special plan.

@vinvin: prepaid normally don't have "secret promo". If they have anything, that should be posted in the prepaid website. https://www.koodomobile.com/prepaid-plans

I saw Koodo is having a $45 plan for 2GB of LTE as of now. It is quite similar to PM though (they don't have 3G plans). As you mentioned you wanted that plan from PM, you might want to have a look into it.

Yes, I rechecked. It was for "new activation only". If PM plan is better, you could switch there, same network though.

If you do switch, choose your timing. When you port out, you will lose any $$$ or data/minutes left in your Koodo account, so best to try to minimize these, even if it means buying a more expensive one-time booster just to use up your $$$ balance.

ya, thats what i was looking at, the 3g or lte plans, was going to see if its a hassle to switch the 3g plan to lte if 3g ended up being to slow
