Right, I also have a line switch to fido from Rogers and the agent told me I couldn't get the same deal for that line.

As an example, the current EPP I can get is $53.13 for 20GB max speed, but the fine print below includes the hardware credit so the plan is actually $65.63.

OAC. Offer subject to change without notice. Limited time offers, while quantities last. Proof of employment is required (work ID badge or benefits card). Unlimited Plan with 20GB max speed price base of $75, less $12.50 hardware credit (will be applied 2nd or 3rd bill), less 15% employee discount, equals $53.13. Pricing for the secondary line 20GB plan is $75, less $10 Add A Line discount, less $12.50 hardware credit (will be applied 2nd or 3rd bill), equals $52.50. Financing price and hardware credit of $12.50 for new phone are for 24 months. A one time $40 connection fee applies on the first bill. For additional terms and conditions visit www.rogers.com/terms.
I asked, the answer I got was that the $50 was for the plan, no matter you getting a new phone or not.

Agree. They actually called me me and offer me $65 for 10 GB because I’ve been a loyal customer (+20 years)
In turn they offer $50 for 15GB to winbacks
I straight up said no to them

I had a Rogers number 20 years ago... I wonder if I contact them, they would give me a "win back" deal?

I still have the number, just with different carrier.

Have you tried calling them?
Maybe they will give it to you if you say you’re planning to leave.
They aren’t going to just hand out the plan automatically to millions of customers, and lose several hundred million each year.

I am not with Rogers but through speaking with numerous porting teams over the years, Rogers or any carrier have the ability to see when the service is being asked to release the number. Why not at that stage, Rogers could call the number and negotiate a retention offer before they release the number to port?

Why be reactive and not proactive?

Is it against the rules to do that on Rogers end?

I swear, next to nobody in this forum has any idea how acquiring new customers works.
You'd be surprised how much I know about the wireless telecom industry.

Gotta do the work to get the discount.

Well we are learning fast.

Word! That's why i am surprised folks aren't proactive about switching plans more. It's a game, the best hunter gets the best possible deal

If you reach out to them first then it's you who want to "win them back", not the other way around. Do you think they would give you the special treatment? LOL

I don’t really care what or how much you think you know about the telecom industry.
My comment pertains to all businesses that offer bonuses to acquire new customers.
Banks regularly offer new account signup bonuses.
Credit card issuers are always offering new account signup bonuses.
Loan companies are always offering some kind of incentive to take out a loan.
And finally, telecom companies are always offering the best deals to new customers, or to bring back previous customers.
It’s called increasing your customer base, to make more money.
All businesses do it.
Does that mean all these businesses I listed above, as well as every other business out there should give their current customers everything they give new customers, or they’re “taking advantage of them”?

So what you're telling me is don't be loyal to any one company and switch regularly to get new customer deals on everything from telecom to banks to credit cards to get the best deal?

Got it.

ZOomer is basically Rogers. You're just using a subsidary of the parents company.
