[Rogers] Rogers Post $99 VIP Cable /Gigabit 2 yr term expiry retention deal (YMMV)
I was lucky enough to sign up for the $99 VIP cable and Gigabit internet deal from Rogers 2 yrs ago. I was paying a total of $118.64 all in ($99 plus $5 for an extra hd cable box plus hst) My contract is coming due on Sept 3 so I decided to make the dreaded call to "renegotiate". I fully expected to be on the phone for hours and only to be quoted a ridiculous amt at which point I was going to cancel and hope for the best. To my surprise the agent said there is a special offer tagged on my account and the offer I received was $123.71 all in or an extra $5 only. The only difference between my new package and the old one is I move from the VIP cable package (which they've discontinued a while back) to the premier package which is still their top of the line package. The call took no longer than 20 mins tops.
At any rate, I suspect there may be a number of you that have this deal expired or coming due for expiry shortly so I thought I'd share.
PS: I live in Vaughan. I called them directly at 18557327149. This is not a contract, rather a 2 yr term deal meaning price savings guaranteed for 2 yrs. Or in other words, if there is a base increase to their regular prices then my charges could go up accordingly. No contract hence can cancel at any time.
