[Rogers] [Rogers] Rogers Ignite Internet Gigabit Unlimited + Gigabit Wi-Fi Modem $49.99 (YMMV)

Called in today to upgrade to Rogers Ignite Internet Gigabit Unlimited + Gigabit Wi-Fi Modem for $49.99 ($39.99 + Modem fee $10) for one year. Not sure if it's a great deal but thought some one could benefit from this post.

I'm still on the gigabit $35 deal. It expires in 2 months. I assume this is what they will offer as a retention deal, and if thats the case its 'meh' at best.

$5 more for gigabit. This is consistent with deals that sales agents have offered over the years.

Basically your best bet is to keep 500mbps until near the end of your term. Most likely they will offer you this same gigabit deal again at that time, and that way you get the most 'time' out of your Rogers promos.
(then again, I could be wrong)

Correct, I took this promo since my term was expiring with 500 mbps and $5 more for double the speed didn't seem too much

Does your bill tells your that your offer $35, expires in 2 months?

No, this is a great deal right now. Unlike other years, internet is essential given the pandemic. Rogers and most internet providers are generally not giving out discounts in the current environment. Retention deals are limited also, if you even get them.

Lucky you. The scammers at Rogers are charging me 95$ for the same plan just because Fibe is not available at my address yet. I swear, the day Fibe is available I'll ditch them after being with them for 20 years.

They don't even show you the price of Internet packages on their web site now.

Scam artists.

Once you start getting close to your expiry date, your bills will show an alert box like so (see attached)
This is seen in both the PDF/mail and web-displayed versions of the bill, so you can't miss it if you're paying attention to your bills.

Last year I was in the same scenario as the OP, and got offered a plan that is $5 more for a year of gigabit.
Best case scenario is they offer me the same plan as I have now for the same price (which will probably go up in price next year anyway)
Would rather not pay more than $50 though. Worst case is they offer something stupid like $80/mo for gigabit

I have the same price plan. I just got off the phone with them. They did not budge.

I was on the $35 gig plan as well and it was ending in March. Called in and threaten to switch. Was offer this 49.99 for the same plan. Took it as there was nothing else better being offered.

I got my $39.99 in March just before the pandemic hit. Since the pandemic, most internet providers have not given good deals. They know people need internet and won't switch to another provider for $5 cheaper because people are concerned of interruptions.

My BIL just renewed at a higher price than your offer, at lower speed.

This is a decent deal. Something else to consider is this offer may not be available a few days/weeks later. So if others are offered this deal, ask them to put notes in your account. It can help you to get that price at a later date, but no gurantee.

This is a great deal for OP who got $45/500u as his 'base' promotion.
I've had $25/500u before and was only subject to $5/mo increases every year, so it would be a pretty hefty increase to pay $50 if I'm currently paying $35 for gigabit.

Internet was always essential. I'd be surprised if Rogers stopped offering promotions, seeing as targeted customer promos are the only way they can offer a good price to a customer (and thus acquire/retain a customer) without competition like Bell price fixing against them. If they had this deal on their front page, it wouldn't be long before Bell suddenly had the same offer.

My theory is that your 'base' promotional price is decided by what the agent is able to offer you when you first sign on. Some agents are able to offer better deals than other agents. I'm not 100% certain on this part but I think that's how it works

My current promo expires on June 25. What would be the best time to contact them to renegotiate!
? Early June? Mid June? One week before expiration?

You will want to give it some time - from what I hear, placing a cancellation request for your end date and then waiting 1 week for an email to arrive is how it's done. But you definitely want to give it some room.
For myself I plan on contacting them 2-3 weeks before expiry.
