S6 supply

The girlfriend left Koodo this week because of a serious supply/cost issues. We drove to BestBuy (30 kms) and were told they are out of Samsung S6 in both locations in Red Deer. We did have a gift card left from our last phone purchase, which we wanted to put towards a purchase of an S6. We then went to a Koodo outlet store, but the phone is now full mark up, no deals and the sales lady couldn't do anything.
I then went to Virgin mobile display in the Source store in the same mall. The sales people cut us an incredible deal , so she smiled and tossed her Koodo relationship aside. We have been happy with the service and the costs, up until this week. The question I have is will BestBuy ever carry S6 again or are they done handling the product?

Yes. "We Don't know what we are getting until we stock the shelves". I then told her, " We are out of here, this is stupid"

You realize Best Buy manages its own inventory and purchases the phones it sells directly from the manufacturer? The Koodo part of the equation (plans) was available without inventory restrictions.

Why does Brian care what Best Buy & Koodo do anymore?  His Girlfriend is happy with the Virgin deal .... isn't she? If I had a girlfriend & she got a Virgin deal, I would be happy too! ;)

I just wanted to inform Kooodo and ask a question. Sorry if you are uninterested. She is happy, but we are frustrated with the BESTBUY/KOODO inventory control. The Source experience was excellent. Chow!

Brian, I was extremely interested, that is why I asked the question. This is just a users forum. Even I am here to learn & sometimes help. Occasionally Koodo employees respond in difficult & complicated situations. In your case, I wouldn't  hold my breath.
CHOW!
