  • Updated 3 weeks ago
Koodo is offering me a S9+ on the large tab for $330 up front, then $20 a months for 24 months. What I wondered is, are they negotiable at all? Say $0 up front, then $33.75 a months for 24 months, online only? I've been a customer since Koodo first started in my town, and have bought every cell phone I've ever owned from them.
I know, it probably is a silly question, but when I shop at the kiosk they are always negotiable. Presently a S7 owner

No tabs are set at max already no negotiations unfortunately. Sell your S7 and pay more upfront

No that sort of thing isn't up for negotiating even for retention. Most things are but shifting upfront to a bigger tab is not something you can customize.

If you are able to wait, hopefully tab a tracking large becomes available online eventually. No timeline has been given though

Thank you. I guess that I will hold on to my S7 until the prices go down. I will be passing my phone onto my son in law when I get a new one, so I can't sell it. I appreciate the quick answers.

I got this offer 7-8 days ago. it was supposed to be valid till the 14th of July. I tried ordering online today at 9:30 AM and the offer disappeared (and now its just a regular offer). I called them and they are saying "offers are subject to change". what a miss. 
I'm so disappointed that i might just cancel Kodoo (i have two lines so they will lose $90/month. They could have had me as a customer for the next 6 years as well, if they had kept their word. Now i just want to cancel).

What's the point of enticing someone with an offer and then not giving it to them? Silly service.

@akshu: I watched the price closely also. I am not trying to defend Koodo here. However, from my observation, you might mix up 2 offers. One is the offer through text (upto $100 credit) with the date of July 14 (which I saw in the text and that should be available). Another is the web online discount (Did you see a date with the phone? and do you take screenshot of it). Those 2 might not be necessarily the same.

No problem. I understand. No I didn't take any screenshots of the offer itself, otherwise my case would have been 100% proveable. I never thought they would pull it out of nowhere as I was doing my calculations. Thanks everyone. I'll wait to see if they respond to my Facebook message.
I'm getting an S9 plus, with or without koodo.

If they offered it on the S9 plus till the 14th they would honour it. Why wouldnt they? The text you have shown doesnt say anything about the S9 plus. The S9(plus) is a flagship phone that just came out as Dinh said. I'm betting no carrot was dangled on this phone.

Your bet would cost you haha! But you're right, it wasnt about a specific model. i only mention S9 plus as that's the model i was looking for.

One last thing: my phone has an automatic recording feature. So I have the conversion I had with kodoo yesterday on my phone, where the rep confirmed the offer details!

Yes MasterCard. I'm going to try with visa next. But the address on the card matches with the address where I would want it to be shipped. Such a strange problem.

Is your shipping address the same as your home address on your account?

@akshu: What was the exact message when they "kicked" you out? There should be some messages with it. If you don't know the reason, you could contact Koodo directly and ask them.

Another thing to keep in mind are the current plan costs which they've recently bumped up Large is now $80 min plus tab cost $20. If you've been a client a long time your old plan might not be eligible for renewal.

Minimum tab large plan went up from $79 to $80. Tab large cost went down from $21 to $20 a month. Seems like this change helps the customer more than Koodo.

Tab L when down only because there is now a Tab XL.
And a tab cost doesnt really sve any money.  You pay the same over a 2 year period anyways
