Samsung Galaxy S7 $ differences


How is it that three weeks ago the Samsung Galaxy S7 was $200, then two weeks ago it was $300, and this week it's $400, and when I add my positive Koodo tab, it's $520!? What kind of scam are you trying to pull here?

There is two different TAB structures. This is most likely the reason why. The TAB PLUS is usually cheaper as the payments per month are higher than the normal TAB> which makes that tab higher in price.

None , there are sales that's come and go, sometimes weekly How much positive tab are you adding?
I've been waiting for 2years to get a positive tab and almost to the day my phone starts crapping out and freezing all the time and won't let me get the latest updates anymore. I tried to upgrade to the note 4 when they were still available and was just told they weren't available anywhere anymore. I'm very partial to Samsung as I've never really had any problems with them and have been watching the website closely. There have been no sales of any kind mentioned on the website, only the price jumps each week another $100 higher, and then I add my positive tab of $24 or something it adds another $100 + my positive tab. So it would be $400 then add the tab and it becomes $524. Please explain. Thanks.

The Galaxy S7 has been the same price since it was launched, I don't know where you were seeing it raise by $100 multiple times, it's always been $904 since it's release.

Only thing that i have seen change, is what tab they are listing the price of. At first it was TAB Plus, then the price they were showing was the normal Tab.

Also, there was an activation credit.  
I've seen big credit- some were over $200 of it- on many phones.  It seems they reduced amount of activation credit...

No, thats correct, i saw it for almost $200. about a week ago now it almost $400.0. i was also wondering the same thing, why the big drop/jump in price?whenever i check the price, i usually go right to check out just to see what the final price is and there was a big jump over the past week
It's always said on the tab plus and it jumped from $200 to $300 to $400 to $524 when I added my positive tab. I just think Koodo should have better offers for faithful customers that want to renew their contract.

So, you have seen $200, $300 and $400 on Tab Plus.

And now you see $524 on Tab:
It's $544 with the Tab and you can use your $24 positive tab > it should be $520 with Tab

If you use the Tab plus, you have to switch your current plan to one of the Tab plus plan.
If you use the Tab, you can keep your current plan.
If you have a good plan, you should pay a little more upfront for your phone and keep your plan.

I'm not too worried about my plan, and if the price differences are reflecting what my current plan is on the prices, Koodo should also provide a list of other options instead of limiting you based on your current plan. As for the price changes I noticed, each week was the tab plus price shown. Once I logged in so I could add my positive tab credit, the price went from the original now $400 to another $100 + my positive balance of $24 for a total of $524. So basically I would be paying more because I have a positive balance rather than just opening a new account for the lower price? FYI Virgin is offering the S7 on a 2yr term for almost 1/2 the price...

What plan do you have?

Add: 
Yes, you can get the S7 for almost 1/2 the price with Virgin.
$224.99 upfront + minimum $80/mo plan which includes 300 min + 1GB for 24 months

Koodo: $544 upfront +$50/mo which includes 500 min + 1GB for 24 months
            or, $544 upfront + your current plan for 24 months

I am happy with my plan with Koodo. As I said before, I just think Koodo should have better offers for faithful customers.

The slight size difference was the point for me. Going from the Note 3, I have very large hands, the s7 seemed to small while the edge felt like a good compromise. http://www.feintroot.com/
