I would also appreciate some clarification on this.

Whatever balance in your available funds is what would be transferred. So if you have $8 in availabile funds, that's what would be transferred to Koodo

Hey everyone, 

 

Well as I said, if you pay for your plan and decide you want to switch to Koodo before your plan ends, you will not be credited for the unused days on your current plan. Since we're prepaid, you pay the full amount for your plan upfront and there is no way to get a refund or a credit if you decide to stop using your service midway into your plan. That's why we recommend switching to Koodo close to your renewal date, so you don't lose days of service you paid for and won't end up using.

 

However, if there's money left in your account balance (what you see as 'available funds' on your self-serve), it will get transferred to your Koodo balance. Most people have in general 0$ in their account balance but if you do have some money, it will not be lost and will get transferred over. 

 

Also note that a maximum of 300$ can get transferred from your PM balance to your Koodo balance. If you have more than 300$ in your account balance (which honestly doesn't really happen, I don't think I've ever seen that but thought I'd mention it just in case), only 300$ will get transferred and the rest will be lost. 

 

I hope I was able to make myself clear but please let me know if you guys have any other questions!

@MarieHelene_L but why PM send Koodo 5GB Data text messages to switch over, there know we/I just renew with PM, why not give us longer extensions time instead good till September 16th ?

I am sure Koodo is not even looking at the date you renew with PM. I think it would be a very good idea for them to extend or give longer expiry dates on these offers. However, for me, I will not switch unless Koodo comes out with a better offer. It makes no sense to switch to a plan that is so much more expensive and only gives you one extra gig of data and nation wide calling.

I have 2 accounts in Public mobile (12GB/90 days) and I got Koodo offer for one. I am leaning towards Koodo offer for the one i got as it helps me to schedule phone replacement with Koodo tab when good activation credits are offered. Hope this works better in overall savings

The funny thing is I would take the Koodo offer but they don't offer it to me.
