I'm already a customer, is upgrading and adding a tab considered a new activation and therefore qualifies for the $200 bonus gift?

If you're adding a new line then yes. Otherwise it's not a new activation, it's an upgrade.

You can try Bestbuy for Boxing Day perhaps since the flyer states new and renewal but they might claim it a mistake or something

I upgraded/renewed my phone through BB before and I received BB.gift card 🙂

I would ask them if I can receive a GC for upgrade tho.

Last year they didn't do it for Koodo phones at least, sadly.

They may claim it a mistake but that would also be false advertisement... to increase customer flow...

And I would insist for GC and they(BB in this case) should honor it.

some multi-brand retailers are offering bonus.gift cards or PC Plus Points on upgrades on only the S5 Neo and the iPhone 5s on Koodo.  Other phones, the GC's/Points are only on New Activations

YMMV, but you could call in and talk to loyalty to get some sort of deal to justify doing a HUP (Hardware Upgrade). Otherwise, the only way to take advantage of the.gift cards would be a NAC (new activation). Could port out to another carrier, then port back in. Hopefully loyalty will give you a good enough deal to prevent you from having to resort to that.
