Hi,

This morning I pre-ordered my S9+... Over the weekend, my friend sent me his referral link and I activated it. Now, I have to enter my Koodo phone number so that both of us will get the $50 bill credit. Considering that I don't have one yet because I'm about to switch to Koodo and that my new phone will arrive in 2+ weeks only:

1. The referral offer ends March 1. Will we lose the $50 credit? Or will I able to enter the phone # once I receive my S9+ and thus we'll still receive the credit?
2. During the phone purchase, I selected the option to port my phone # from my current and soon-to-be old carrier but I never got the option to input my number. So, how will this work exactly?
3. I used the $150 credit promo code that comes with the S9 purchase... Can it be used conjointly with the referral offer?

Thanks!

hi Georges,
1. The referral offer end date of Mar1 is for the $50, after that it comes back to normal $25. What do you meant by "activated the referral"? Do you have an active Koodo number  now? If you activated your line before Mar1, the offer should be ok.
2. This is a pre-order, the phone will ship around Mar16 (as stated in the offer). They might ship the SIM and phone together on Mar16 (I could be wrong here). I would suggest you wait till you receive the SIM and transfer your old number to it.
3. Yes.

He was saying he activated the referral link.

@Mats: It wasn't considered "activated" by simply clicking on that link.

Its his term not mine. I know its a 2 part process and so does he. He has done 1st part. He is waiting to get a phone number to do part 2.

Let's let the OP explain what he meant instead of making guesses based on how we interpret it. No one better to hear from then the source!:)

Hey guys, thanks for the replies.

Sorry, I meant that I redeemed the offer with the first email (the one with the title "[Friend's name] has an extra special Koodo offer"). Once I clicked on the Redeem Now button, I received another email to activate my rewards. Inside this email, I have the option to provide a Koodo phone number.

Right now, I do not have a Koodo number considering the S9 and SIM card will arrive in two weeks. It also seems I don't have a Koodo account even though I've pre-ordered the S9 yesterday morning and haven't received any email regarding my account... So taking everything into account, my friend and I will be getting the $25 credit.
