Online Only vs In-Store

I want to get an LG G6 but it looks like it's "online only". I don't have a credit card though. Does this mean a Koodo store doesn't carry it? If not could I go to the store and order it that way?

Cheers.

Is your debit card a visa debit card? You can use that

So looked into it a bit from older forum posts and generally prepaid credit cardz won't work although someone said they used one. The koodo FAQ no longer states which prepaid cards are or are not valid for product purchase. So scratch that other option.

Ok so I asked if you have a visa debit card. It's a debit card with certain banks that will work as a credit card as well. Is your debit card a visa debit card?

Do you have a friend or family member you can give the cash to and use their credit card to make the purchase, that's an option if you don't have one yourself.

Thanks for the help guys but my question though is - do you know if the Koodo stores sell the same phones that you see as "online only" on their online store. I tried calling my local store but they don't answer. If they do I can just make the trip in and get one.

No they don't, it's online only and no other way to get it but to purchase it online in the webstore unfortunately.

No because then they wouldn't be 'online only.'

That's what I thought
