What happens to the remaining minutes/data in a pre-paid booster if you purchase a second booster before using up the first?


See topic.... Will the first booster be used until it's depleted, or are the minutes/data forfeit? I want to purchase a some voice and data under the double promotion but i still have 300+ minutes and 250+ MB of data left on my first boosters.

Boosters are stackable so they will just keep adding to each other giving you more data or minutes. So grab a bunch while they're on sale and get enough data and minutes to last you the whole year if you want.

I've stocked up on boosters, Harry, and they will just be added one of top of the other. It's an awesome deal the double boosters and I bought 3 x $25 1000 minutes = 3000 minutes and also 3 x $30 2GB = 6GB in total 😃 That on top of the boosters I still hadn't left 🙂

It's very nice to know that for the next couple of years, your monthly cell costs will be fixed at $15 :oD

Make sure you keep on paying your base plan though because once you miss a base plan top off, your prepaid service will shut down and I believe your boosters will be gone...?

It's not quite all that bad, John 🙂 You'll lose your boosters if you don't renew the base plan for 90 days... not immediately thank goodness!

Oh, 90 days! Alright, that's actually not that bad. If it was immediately, I'm pretty sure lots of people would be devastated!

You can not use data until you add another booster. You may consume the data in a week, or 4 months, and once at or near 'empty' you would need to login and purchase a fresh one. Same for your bucket of minutes.

so my data booster will not automatically top like my base plan will. I have to manually go in and add another booster of data to my account

Login to your prepaid self serve account. From the Overview window, select 'Add booster Add-ons'. Select the data booster you want from the left pane and choose 'Add to My Order' so that it shows up in the right pane. Select, 'Top Up to Purchase Booster Add-on(s)'. If you have a registered Visa debit card, or top-up voucher, you will be taken to a payment window to complete the purchase. Since this is a booster add-on/top up, you will have to click on the 'go back' link to apply the funds toward the data booster. After this step, you should be all set.

How do you know when there's a booster sale on? Koodo prepaid & boosters are perfect for how I use my phone. Sale pricing would make it even better.

You just have to keep checking the website / self serve to see when they go on sale.... Koodo may also send out texts for deals

To date (since 2012) Koodo has only had two sales, one in 2013 and the other last year. Both were around Christmas time... so that is when you should keep your eyes open. I didn't get a text message but it'll be on their site and on Facebook I'm sure. I'm hoping there will be another sale this year!
