According to Rogers, the current TV packages (Select, Popular and Premier) don't count towards the calculation of the BCB discount, hence the maximum is 8%. For those on the old Digital VIP packages, I think you can still get 12% until you switch to one of the current packages.jayleung916 wrote: ↑ Hi. This is what my share everything plan (10gb data, Canada-wide calling, unlimited text etc etc) looks like:
Line 1: Premium tab, s7 Edge
- tab balance: $415.50 ($0 on April 20, 2019)
- monthly fee: $90 - $7.20 (8% BCB) = $82.80 + 13% HST = $93.56
Line 2: Premium+ tab, Note 8
- tab balance: $531.25 ($0 on September 27, 2019)
- monthly fee: $70 - $5.60 (8% BCB) = $64.40 + 13% HST = $72.77
Line 3: Premium tab, s7 Edge
- tab balance: $450.12 ($0 on April 30, 2019)
- monthly fee: $55 - $4.40 (8% BCB) = $50.60 + 13% HST = $57.18
All 3 lines combined = $223.51 (tax in). I got 12% BCB as recently as the February bill, complained to Rogers (Management Chat) about that and they told me it was a system error. It should have been 8% all along and the 12% I got was "advantageous for me" (in their words). Going into the chat, I calculated the extra 4% off each line and the combined total discount would be $8.60 ($3.60 line 1 + $2.80 line 2 + $2.20 line 3). In a very nice way, I asked if there could be a credit of $8.60 for 12 months. I was denied and they gave me a $50 goodwill credit.
What do you guys think? Should I call them, live chat management again to push for more, or this is a pretty good deal already? Thanks!
Side note: On the home services side, I am paying $140.08 (tax in) for: 500U, Premier TV w/Fairchild and BeIN Sports (soccer channel), home phone. I am not sure if my home services discounts would affect my ability to get more discounts from the wireless side. (BeIN Sports is already $15.99 itself, but my dad loves soccer and insists on keeping it)
The same thing happened to me last September when I switched from Digital VIP to Premier.
The BCB discount does not apply on the home services if the discounts are greater. However, it still does apply to the wireless services, but it's currently being phased out, according to various Rogers reps. The end date is uncertain, but it should be within the next year or so. At least 30 to 60 days notice will be given to customers before their BCB discount is scheduled to come off.
