@stonechucker yeah I think they will handle the next attempted $ bump for fall promo holders a lot more carefully than the first time. However, I think you should just keep enjoying it for the forseeable future. Making manual top-ups in a timeframe that suits you better seems like a great compromise where you don't have to give up your faster data or pay any extra in exchange for things you don't need (Can-wide, more data). Win-Win. Boring, but it works for ya.
@mimmo, I dream of using all my data in a cycle, but I rarely use half. I only use Provincial calling, only txt within my Province, and rarely use the LD addon. I have only used 23 minutes of 200, in about 2.5 years.
This is a rare renewal this time around, as I have $41 in rewards, $50 in friend referral bonuses. So I’m only paying a small amount for 90 days. I’d prefer a 30 day cycle, but if I’m going to do that, really the only smart choices would be the 5GB for $40 (same cost, more data, calling, less speed) or a 2 or 3 GB LTE plan, with the same talk and txt, for inflated prices.
As @ShawnC13 mentioned, I will just top up part way through cycles to put money on the plan. I really don’t expect to take any Koodo offers, but if something came out that would suit my desire better, I will switch then.
i just feel left out as the best deal ever is the one I’m already on. It’s boring waiting for a better deal to come, when I know Telus is going to raise my price in the future. I do not expect the same result of the last attempt to happen again.
Why would you feel left out? As you can see, there are many 2016 fall promo customers still hanging on to the same plan in spite of many attempts to lure us over to Koodo or a different plan on this service. @srlawren is an example, he let temptation get the better of him. I am sure 20/20 hindsight is telling him that he should have waited until the $40/8GB offer with $180 bill credit.

@will13am to be completely honest, I have no regrets on taking the offer I took. Yes it would have been nice to get a better offer, but I never go anywhere near the 6GB included, and I still got $100 bill credit plus there was a $100 referral credit special at the time. I have access to Easy Roam which is still better suited to visiting the USA for a day or two (my most frequent pattern by far) vs. the PM add-ons (for my usage--all 3 services pretty much required), plus I could use it internationally if desired. And, to be honest again, Koodo's [post-paid, since pre-paid is sahred system with PM] system seems much more stable and reliable in terms of payments, renewals without issues [not that I had any personally, but we sure see a lot of them here] and other technical glitches.

Me too, me too. Still hanging on to that Fall promo.
