Not when the deal ends, how long is the term/contract? They usually don't hand out those plans to continue indefinitely, I believe around Christmas when most of us first got it, it was a two year deal iirc?
When I inquired, I was told there's no term/contract, but there's also no guarantee that the price will be $50 forever. But because there's no contract, if there is a price increase down the road, you can switch to another promo or leave Rogers at that time.

Interesting, I never use the app but just tried and could not find where to navigate to see any offers as you showed.
Likewise, I only see my own plan and nothing about other plans. And I know when I called the lady said there was no such plan- so I just assume it's ON only.

Guys - does this $50 4GB plan include Roam like home? Can anyone confirm? I can actually see the plan on MyRogers but the Roam Like Home button is turned off. If it does not include it then that is a deal breaker for me :-(. Thanks for your help!

Yes, I can confirm it includes Roam Like Home. I texted "Travel" to 222 to confirm on this plan and it definitely says I am set up for it.

Thanks wongeh - this is great! I will prob call Robbers today - if not, I guess I can sign up online anyway.

Its ON only? I am in Ontario and got told no such plan ... I think it might actually be time to change companies.

Is there caller id with this 50 dollar plan if available. Online my rogers only shows 85 for 4gb plan.

I just got the 50 dollar plan so it's available. Been with robbers about 15 years and the retention lady tried to pull a fast one and offer me a 65 dollar plan for each phone saying basically she was doing me a solid. I didn't agree.. I had been skimming this forum and saw this offer so and said that was funny as others I know had the 50 dollar plan with 4 gs for each phone. She put me on hold to see if it was ". Still available.." came back and said it was and that I was lucky to get it.
Am I lucky? Isnt a loyal customer supposed to get something in return? Their is a lot of competition out their last time I looked. I don't get any phones at this price. I don't really care but I have no problem calling back and getting anything that's missing from this plan. Their are two lines so my bill will be over 100..

Are you getting this $50 plan while on a 2-year agreement or are you outside of a 2-year agreement?

Can you just order it right through MyRogers? Or do you still need to call retention's??
Apparently not, I tried it and can't even get the to page. Just gives me an error and tells me to call in.

Just a note - I got the $50/4GB plan for 3 lines, I am in Ontario. It was a bit of an odd call with retentions. I called and said I want to cancel, they asked why, I said b/c there is a better deal with Freedom Mobile. The CSR rep immediately told me about the $50/4GB plan but without letting me respond said that I don't need to cancel the plan and that when I sign up for Freedom Mobile and port my number over it would automatically cancel my Rogers account. CSR was not even trying to sell me the plan or trying to get me to stay - seemed like he did not really care. But then actually went to the Freedom Mobile website to tell me why the plan sucks and how the reception is crap - overall talking about its inferiority to Robbers.

I smiled and nodded and just asked for the $50/4GB plan for all 3 lines and got it without any fuss. It was quite straightforward, but a very odd call.

But I guess in the end helpful and mutually satisfactory - retentions managed to keep me and my 2 other lines and I am happy with the plan I got and what I am paying, relative to what I had before. Still wish we had access to those crazy QC plans.

How long will this go on before someone who claims to have signed up for this deal confirms the length of the term, if one exists, or does not.
