This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies and is no longer visible to community members. The community moderator provided the following reason for archiving: positive tab mention

We are getting points for making praise towards Koodo, and we are getting points for several other things. I think that we should be able to use these points as money towards our tab or phone bill or towards our new handset.

I think this would be a very interesting perk to have for Koodo clients :) I'm waiting for the manager to call me back on this.

I highly doubt this is going to happen. This is like a video game where you finish it and that's the end of it.
Thank you for pointing this out, as I just made that comment , I spoke to Koodo. They have informed me that I have money towards a new phone now.

That's called the Tab, which is accumulated from each bill you receive. The Tab has ZERO affect with the points on Get Satisfaction.

I'm not sure if this is feasible. A while back Koodo had a phone giveaway that was tied to community participation and there was an influx of people posting just just so that they could get points. I'd hate to see something like that happen again.

Those that regularly and meaningfully contribute to this community have a chance of being selected as a Mobile Master and that has its own perks.

Still, I kind of like the idea, but only if it could be tweaked to prevent forum spamming.

But fried spam is great for breakfast!
You are allowed to use points towards a new phone, since points equal a positive tab balance according to Koodo :)

Tab points = tab balance.

yeah 100 pts will probably be a cent
No, it's dollars towards a new phone, I have 185 points and that makes $64.00 towards a new phone.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Matthew is confusing "tab points" for Get Satisfaction points.

I'M RICH BIOTCH !!!!
According to you Matthew Koodo owes me all the phones they have in stock at every kiosk in Ontario, come on does that make sense? No, so you know everyone here is right and your getting things completely confused. Trust me if Koodo owed me you best bet I'd be collecting, heck I'd give you 10 phones if your theory was correct but sadly your incorrect. Good try though lol
I have spoken to two reps , I am still waiting for the other one to call me back , but they have told me that the points equal a positive tab balance that can be used towards a new phone, and a new phone only , so that's what the verdict is on that one.

The points on this forum are just that. Points. They have NO impact on your tab.
Points = money, just spoke to Koodo, and I have $64 towards a new phone because of my points :D

Ok, my contribution here makes the 3rd koodo employee commenting on this thread and the second to tell you that points on this forum have NOTHING to do with your tab. They are for entertainment purposes only. Your available tab balance is the result of accumulated tab credits, which are applied every month as a percentage of your monthly bill. You build up tab credit at the same rate, whether you contribute to the forum or not.

The points on this forum HAVE NO BEARING ON YOUR KOODO ACCOUNT. They are, for all intents and purposes A HIGH SCORE.

Whoever gave you information that the points associated with Get Satisfaction can be used towards your tab is flat out WRONG.

The foundation of Koodo is the Tab. And koodo only focuses on getting it better.
It keeps a-no-contract term environment which now is guaranteed to be over in 24 months.
But it has nothing to do with Koodo Community.
