Re: Received an text msg from pm for koodo 5gb plan

For the most part, I think Koodo is sending text messages based on where you live and type of plan you have.

Yes, I believe that this must be a factor.  Based on what I've read, the majority who have received the plan are on the 12GB/3 month plans.

Re: Received an text msg from pm for koodo 5gb plan

I think they are simply rolling out promos in stages.

I have been on PM since the beta tester days and have the 12 gig/120 dollar promo. I'm in Toronto.

I just got the Koodo text promo. The deal doesn't make sense for me given monthly rewards. If someone is on the same PM plan and needs a phone, more data or Canada wide calls and hads no rewards, then a switch might be worth it.

If you haven't gotten a text yet, just hang tight. I suspect everyone will eventually get offered it if they are on the PM fall 2016 promo.

You would think Koodo would offer something better.

Re: Received an text msg from pm for koodo 5gb plan

Why offer more??? They're just trying to pick away at some low hanging fruit right now. They  know that some people require a tab to purchase a new phone and are using that position to increase their arpu. 

 

Offering people 25% more data and asking them to pay a minimum of 32% more is just plain foolishness................

Re: Received an text msg from pm for koodo 5gb plan

@Garry don't forget the upgrade from province-wide calling to Canada-wide calling, the addition of call centre and physical store support (if desirable), and yes the option to go on a tab if desired.  It might actually be enough to provide an extra $10 of value per month to some people.  If it weren't for community, referral, and loyalty discounts, I'd probably be pretty tempted myself; but as it is, I'm not likely to take them up on this offer.  Oh right, which I also received finally today by text.  The current batch appears to be good through Oct 2nd.  I'll think about it a bit--if I really do decide I MUST have an LG V30, and given that it's going to be very pricey, the ability to do the tab for a chunk of it might actually make this worthwhile.

Re: Received an text msg from pm for koodo 5gb plan

@srlawren Out of curiosity, I actually looked at the costs of a phone on a medium tab. For an iPhone 7 128 GB it's $450.00 on a medium tab, plus $15.00 a month for 2 years. That seems pretty pricey. For that amount, it makes more sense to get one outright on eBay or the Apple store.

Or don't buy an iPhone 😂

Re: Received an text msg from pm for koodo 5gb plan

@MF as always, the answer of whether something is a good deal or a good idea, is "it depends".  You're right that it might be cheaper to buy the phone outright at the Apple store (or  other source).  But, not everyone can afford or justify the $$$ up front.  However, there ARE cases when it can be significantly cheaper to buy the phone on the tab.  For example, right now, Koodo have both the LG G6 and Samsung S7 on sale by way of a $400 activation credit. So if you buy it on the large tab for $21/month for 24 months, it costs you $501 instead of $900 to buy it outright.  That said, you can probably find either phone unlocked and outright for less than $900, but the $501 price point is pretty good!

 

EDIT:  @xCameron94x yes, or that!  preferably!  I'm tempted by that G6, but still kinda want to wait for the V30.  Or maybe I'll end up just picking up a OnePlus 5 after all.  Hard to say lol.
