No they're not, I've been talking to them...they only offer cheapest $115/month (corporate) minus 30% discount = ~$80 for only 10GB a month and they are not budging...see my next post as I've spoken to Telus as well

Then I'll just stick with my Share Everything plan which still does get the 30% corporate discount.

I ordered online, I received SIM card next day (GTA), you need to call in to complete transfer after you have SIM card.

I guess you can activate regular lines in any store, then call EPP to apply discount, not very sure but should work
Thanks - just pulled the trigger online - much easier that way.

Wonder if I'm doing something wrong ?
Sounds like this is the only option you have. When I verify my email I get two choices - CIL and EPP. The $50/6GB for me (I think) is under corporate individual liability (CIL) and has much higher up front device pricing. For EPP 30% off the pricing is like all the others in this thread.

I am under a certain power authority located in the province of British Columbia.

Has anyone tried renewing their corporate discount with a share everything plan? Rogers says I'd need to do that prior to doing a hardware upgrade, and that if I renew the corporate discount afterwards, I'd have to pay the corporate discount admin fee again, which I think was around $100.

Man, these carriers are hilarious with their fees.

i was in a similar boat as you, decided to pull the trigger and get the XS Max 64gb (needed a phone as my previous was broken). The way i see it, you pay 20$ difference for two years - 480$, + the 255$ upfront = 735$ total cost for the phone. that beats buying it outright. the only caveat is at the end of the two years, switching to a BYOD plan that is hopefully cheaper or doing this whole dance again.

for those saying switch to Telus, unless i'm mistaken, i believe the overall cost is the same if you're sticking with the XS-max, with the exception that telus 10gb plan is their unlimited version, where as Rogers is not (i was able to cite the telus plan and get a 3gb loyalty bonus for two years to counter telus).
With Telus it's all financing, so after 2 years the overall cost will decrease and you will just pay for the plan and any discounts that goes with it. This is the key benefit to switch to Telus. No need to do a dance with them and if history taught us well. Plans will likely increase not decrease. Cough 10Gb for $60 cough.

Might pull the trigger now... Hope I'm not missing any additional discounts.

Telus EPP
S10+ 128GB
Upfront:
$35 Connection Fee + Upfront Tax $347 @ 13% ($45.11) = $80.11
Monthly Charge:
Telus Easy Payment $13 + Peace of Mind 10GB $67.50 + Tax on $67.50 = $89.28

I'm worried I might lose my Share Everything plan if I re-confirm my corporate email. They said I won't but I never trust anything Rogers tells me.

That's not bad all things considered. I'm guessing thats already including the $350 in hardware credits that EPP gets.

Got in contact with Telus and they are offering me this EPP plan:
iPhone XS Max 64GB; 10GB infinite plan
$75/month minus 10% discount = $67.50 + tax = $76.27 + $30.92 = $107.20/mth

The $30.92/month (cost of device for two years) = $742.08

$0 upfront, $0 at end of contract for the hardware. **Although, will have to pay $163.50 (tax for the device) upfront

In the end, Rogers offered me vs. what Telus offered me:
-$430 upfront fee vs. $0 upfront fee
-$430 price of phone vs. $742 price of phone
-$80/month (reg. $115) 10GB vs. $67/month (reg. $75) 10GB infinite

Have been a loyal Rogers customer since 2005, but think it's time to switch over...

Does anyone know if Telus would unlock the phone if you still have a device balance on the device?

I'm with Bell right now with a Samsung Note 9 with ~$860 remaining on the device balance. My wife and I pay $170+tax for local calling and 5 GB total shared. She needs to upgrade her phone now as she has an OG Pixel and it would bring our plan up to ~$210 (for a new Pixel 3) a month since they won't let her plan carry forward.

So I was considering moving us both over to Telus and get the wife a S10 and then get my plan with the S10+. That would bring our monthly costs to $161/month for unlimited national calling and 20 GB shared. But since I still have my Note 9 and it's in good condition I figured I could sell the S10+ for say $800 and that would cover most of the device balance I have remaining with Bell. It would give me ~$49/month savings as well which is pretty significant.

So does anyone know if Telus would have any issues carrier unlocking a brand new S10+?

Otherwise my options are either just switching my wife over to the EPP plan as it would still net us less per month, or we switch and I do BYOD, eat the device balance cost and enjoy the monthly cost of $148. 24 months of savings would be $1488-$860= $626

EPP 2-Year Hardware Credit: -$1263

Monthly Order Summary
Telus Easy Payment: $13.00 ($312 / 24 months)
Peace of Mind: $67.50
Monthly Total: $80.50
Monthly Tax $67.50 @ 13% = $8.78
