Does Koodo whack you twice for GST?

I run with the $15/month prepaid base plan with a phone I purchased and activated last month. Today I received a text saying I don't have enough money in my account to cover the base plan renewal and was advised to add some in the next two days. I already had exactly $15 in my account to cover the renewal, which I re-verified by logging in. I added an extra $5 to be sure I'm covered, but why would I get this text message saying my account doesn't have enough money in it when it clearly did? The only thing I could think of is I am getting charged GST twice and because of this, I am 75 cents short on the renewal date. I know I am charged GST upon entering money but is Koodo charging it again upon renewing your plan? If so, that is pretty shady.

No Koodo shouldn't be charging you GST on your booster. Your best bet is to call in and see why the funds weren't there to cover your booster top up.

Hi Art, as Jorden said you definitely won't be charged twice for GST. I have had this message once as well, when I too had the exact amount of credit. I called Koodo (*611) and they manually sorted my account, it never happened again. Your $5 will be available in its entirety for next time and you'll only need to top up $10, guaranteed 🙂
