So I'm guessing you're saving a bit with autopay and few referrals but the bulk of your savings is probably from being very active in their community forums?
Community reward is the highest amount but requires the most effort. Ever since, the migrations have become common occurrence, the referral credit has pretty much been decimated. Nobody stays long enough for the referring party to collect even a dab of pocket lint.

Are we able to use Rogers credit card rewards to pay Zoomer bills? In the other Zoomer thread, someone said they could. However, when I look at the transaction in the Mastercard Pay with Rewards app, it says "This expense is not eligible".

So if they send me the Moto or Samsung phone, will the SIM card be in them already? I hope not so I can use the SIM on my existing iPhone, and try to sell the Moto or Samsung.
I like this better due to LTE (future proofing?) and sounds more protected from price increases over the PM prepaid one. Plus the referral is higher.

I have iPhone 5. Not sure if the SIM in the incoming phone would fit. Do I get the 3in1 adapter as well?

The SIM is a nano-SIM and is in the phone. Oddly, the SIM has no logos and is just labelled "LTE". The kit comes with punch-outs for micro-SIM and SIM sizes.

Thanks @quanta and @bakayaroh. I have signed up. The CS was super awesome, he tempted me for the LG Q6 a much better phone but I stayed disciplined and in my budget.

Actually, has anyone requested the SIM not inserted into the phone so the phone is still in unopened packaging?
Edit: Might be pertinent to others, CS mentioned there's two billing cycles from 9th to 8th, and from 1st to end of month. He had no control of me falling under the 9th-8th (autopaid on 27th), I guess due to signing up today.
I always like if my bills come at 1st of month.

Edit 2: You can request this special instruction to not have the SIM inserted. Unfortunately, since I already ordered, CS said she can't add this special instruction to existing order; she'd have to redo the order, which I'm not gonna go through again.

I requested the sim not be inserted as I said I might use my own phone. Sim card wasnt inserted but the package was open. I hear its the standard which is no big deal

I had my 6 months loyalty oct 4. I was able to get 4GB, unlimited calling and texting for 36 bucks. Its funny because I asked for more data as my new job doesnt have wifi in some buildings. they gave me the extra 1gb and was about to leave and I said what else can you offer me and she said unlimited calling. its sure strange that zoomer doesnt offer the deals unless you ask. they are always very nice but a shady tactic.

They will open the phone package even if you ask them not to insert the sim card.

Moto E5 play and Samsung J3 prime are free with the $36 plan (they have different device balance). You can also add money to get some other phones as well.

Yes. Call Rogers Credit Card and tell them that you are with 'CITYFONE' owned by Rogers. They will set your credit card to use rewards towards the Zoomer/Cityphone monthly bill.
