[Rogers] Rogers: $30 6GB LTE Data Plan is back! (SMOKING HOT)

I don't have any website source or Rogers links to this, but my friend was trying to adjust her plan through retentions to attempt to get more data (as she wanted to get more for the galaxy s3). She didn't get transferred to retentions, but instead NORMAL customer care just offered her the $30 6GB LTE Data plan!

Curious as I was, also because I only had the normal 6GB data plan (they wouldnt adjust me to the LTE before), I called in to just the regular *611, and lo and behold, I got the $30 6GB LTE data plan, no hassles, no questions asked replaced on my plan.

Good deal, perhaps Rogers is doing this for the S3 launch!

Call *611 to verify, but I'm 100% sure this is correct =D

edit:

thanks to tisitwon for this little tutorial:

Here's how you guys can get this discount. Just let me say that NO ONE has been trained about this discount, and all of our internal documentation says that the $30/6GB deal expired back in February. I didn't know it actually existed until I spoke with an RFD user who insisted that it did, and about an hour of research of my own.

The SOC (billing code) that the rep needs to find in the system is SHSSRA025. The regular code is SHSSRA029, but it costs $60. SHSSRA025 is $30 for 6gb LTE.

The trick is that if the plan you are currently on already includes data, this billing code will not even show up in the system. The rep needs to put you on a voice-only plan first (like one of the "unlimited" plans, and then SHSSRA025 will show up in the available add-ons for that plan. It does require a 3-year commitment, but the rep should be able to backdate that to your original commitment start date if you had data previously (sorry, the system won't let them get around that if this is your first time adding data).

Anything else that anyone's been told about it being Quebec only, or requiring a 2-year plan instead of a 3, is *****, and is just being told to you by reps who can't find the code so that they don't look like complete idiots (since Rogers has not made any of us aware of its existence or how to get to it).

Best of luck :)

good luck

Don't ask any questions. Just call and get them to switch it. I did this last time they offered it and it was a no-hassle switch over to the 6GB plan.

Thanks, OP.

You can easily get this through retentions at BELUS at any time, whose reps seem to be more laid back and willing to help. Problem with Rogers (and it shows in declining revenue) is that their retention department have little flexibility and major attitude to understand how to compromise. Not to mention dishonest in store sale reps. I guess this is a good deal though to get 6GB for $30 without having to go through normal hassle of retention if you don't mind sticking with Rogers for another 3 years :cheesygri :cheesygri

There's a re-commitment of 3 years for switching to LTE Data Plan?

That kills it for me then. Been looking around for a 6G data only plan. Closest is a tablet plan to use with a phone. I just got Telus prepaid data + messaging plan. $20 (250MB :cry :) . So far, all incoming and outgoing calls are through data. Also I think Rogers kills VOIP traffic

Confirmed... if you are just switching Rogers data plans, then there is no re-commitment for another 3 years necessary.

Ask again, I had this happen to me before. There will definitely be some sort of commitment. This is Rogers.

Would you mind explaining how you got $10 data discount? Do you just ask?

iunno, i dont really mind signing up for the next 3 years, its not like i'm gonna stop using their service, i'd feel crummy to lose my current plan and everything i've bargained for to get it

i'd be PISSED if they messed up my hardware upgrade stuff though, cuz i know i can upgrade next year, and from what i've read in the forums, plan renewals and upgrade renewals are different things
