Koodo Customers Can Now Get a 3-Month Amazon Prime Subscription as a Perk

Looking for a new cell phone plan? Koodo is offering an incentive for new subscribers: Amazon Prime as a new add-on. Koodo customers with eligible an Pick Your Perk plan can select a three-month Amazon Prime subscription as an option.

Amazon Prime offers fast and free delivery on purchases. With a membership, you can also access to Prime Video, Amazon Prime Music, Prime Gaming, Prime Reading, and Amazon Photos. After the three-month period, Koodo customers can decide to continue the subscription for $10/mo. If so, the fee will be added to their Koodo bill for easy payments. If you wish not to continue, you can cancel before the next billing cycle.

“We’re thrilled to introduce Amazon Prime as an add-on subscription for our Koodo mobility customers,” says Dwayne Benefield, Senior Vice President, Mobility & Home Products and Transformation, Telus, Koodo’s parent company. “This new offer is the latest way Koodo continues to deliver value, choice and simplicity for Canadians, now with streamlined access to all the benefits of a Prime membership, on Canada’s largest 5G and 4G LTE network.”

With Amazon Prime Days and the holiday shopping season looming, having three months of Amazon Prime free is a good incentive. You can save on delivery fees while you shop online for family and friends, and partake in special Prime-exclusive deals. Plus, with compelling new and continuing Amazon Prime Video original series like Gen V, Upload, and The Wheel of Time, along with time off work and school, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up on some quality shows. Three months is more than enough time to binge a few TV shows and movies. It’s also more than enough time to decide if it’s worth the $10 a month.

Keep in mind, however, that the promo is technically only worth two months. Why? Amazon already offers new subscribers a 30-day free trial period. It’s also worth noting that if you sign up for Amazon Prime for a full year, the price is $99 saving you a total of $20.88 or two months’ worth. Students, meanwhile, who may represent a large selection of Koodo customers, get Amazon Prime for the discounted rate of $4.99/mo. or $49.99/yr., which makes this promotion less desirable.

Bottom line: the promo will be a good one for some. It will save you a few bucks and give you a moderately extended Amazon Prime subscription period to complete your holiday shopping. It’s also a good amount of time to consider whether you want to continue paying or not. The incentive of simple billing by having the monthly fee added to your Koodo bill is also worthwhile.

If you want to look into this further, Koodo customers can sign up through the self-serve portal on the Koodo website or via any Koodo retail location.

Other Pick Your Perk options should the Amazon deal not tickle your fancy depend on the specific plan you have. But they include rollover data, premium voicemail, unlimited long distance, and unlimited international SMS.
