Would i be able to use multiple MasterCard prepaid giftcards towards my current Koodo bill?

For example my phone bill is $100, i would like to use 4 x $25 Mastercard prepaid giftcards towards the bill

Not really. Koodo does not accept MasterCard prepaid cards as method of payment. Why not use them for something you regularly spend money on (groceries, movies, gas) where they can be used, and pay your Koodo bill using another payment method?

@Andrew, you should be able to use as long as you have had the account for longer than 6 months, the MasterCards are not the Vanilla brand and if you register the cards online.

Name and address of the payee has to match of that of the account. After 6 months anyone can pay anyone’s bill. Trying to eliminate that business rule but will take a while.

Seems like a lot of work for a one-time payment of $25 x 4

@Andrew, just used a Visa gift-card to pay my Koodo bill. It works just fine as I mentioned above, like any other card.
