I have been looking at your phones as I was going to purchase one today, until I went on and saw that the price of the phone I wanted(the samsung galaxy s8) went from 0$- to 290$... Now I can't afford the phone I want. Extremely frusturating. What is the reasoning for this...

Deals constantly come and go. That's a out all there is to it.

You can always buy a used s8 for less than 500 on Kijiji or Facebook marketplace.

And make sure it'S not fake. There's many S8 that are fake and cheaper so pay attention!

And maybe if you can wait more, it might go back to $0 but we don't know when that is. You can check koodo's website from time to time.

I feel the same way every time I want to fill my car's tank... Only option is to wait till price change again!

@ Justin. Sales come and go. Those prices were for a tab large plan. If you aren't in Manitoba or maybe Quebec, tab large plans are not a very good deals over 2 years. Try looking for tab medium which costs more down initially but in the long run it will save you money.

Yeah. it just would of been nice if I knew it was a sale. Would of been nice if they made "Sale" items more obvious other than the little words "sale" that can easily be missed if your new to this site.

Mats, I was going to get the medium plan for 200$. Goes from 200 to almost double :/ . This is why I havent owned a cell phone in like 5 years lol. This turned me off of them again.

Can you explain what exactly you find confusing?
