The price of the bring it back is posted. You have the option to return it or keep it. If you keep it, just pay the bring it back amount. Everyone should take advantage of going with the bring it back route because there are extra promotional credits applied there.

It's much better they give you credit up front. I would avoid contacting them. Better you use up all the credit first then attempt to contact them again. In the end, you are out on top with an extra $60 and also everything is given to you upfront vs the $240 being applied monthly spread over 24 months. You've won.

Still a Rogers Victim for all you know. Sigh!
Just providing a data point here. Finished the order through Tony at cellphoneman.ca and had a small issue with the credits which Tony was able to help solve. Got confirmation emails from Rogers as well, and will be getting my phone in the mail in a few days. I had quite a few questions before signing up and had good quick responses each time. Would say that he's far from "a piece of garbage", at least on my interactions with him.

That being said, make sure to read all of the info on the sites and links he provides, it's pretty clear from there and from your message that you weren't eligible for the deal that was being offered. :rolleyes:

Is anyone else only being offered $35/6GB or $45/25GB options from them? I can't get the $36/25GB from them.
I'm in BC btw.

Edit: just read through the thread and I see that its mostly $45/25gb instead of the $36/25gb from the first post.

Anyways, what is the cheapest option for buying a new phone? I'm mainly interested in Iphone 12, S21, or Pixel 5 depending on which would have the best deal.

Thanks. My main worry is in a month or two they will realize the error somehow and change it back to $300 instead of $600 credit. I guess i will take that risk and hope i works out.

seems like you got the short end of the stick... just keep it quite and see how it turns out.
the worst outcome is you'll end up with the $300 credit that you've agreed on.

You're not eligible because you're already with Rogers LOL. This is a WINBACK plan.

What you're looking for is called Rogers loyalty/retention. Either that or you never contacted us.

Look at everybody else's reviews. This guy either never contacted me, or was just having a bad day.
No point getting emotional buddy..
some people just can't read and you can't help everyone lol.

I wonder if i’d be eligible.

Was a rogers customer back in 2015 and has changed my number since then.

Records should still show me as a previous customer with an account number.

Any idea what the number is for the winback department is these days? And what hours they're working? Is that 7 towers number in the OP the one everyone is using? Has anyone verified it and received a phone etc yet?

Thanks in advance! :)

Yes, $1.79 per month for 24 months is like a 'lease'.

I hope people can get a better price than I did, but I doubt it. I think they give those deals out only if the big 3 have to... Winking Face

Win back, they sent me a text. I had 50 Gb bell unlimited plan before I switched to freedom mobile. I was hoping I could surf net between ttc subway stations. That was a pipe dream...

I have spent a lot of money with Rogers too for my business, so I could probably get the current win back from them too, but I am happy with bell and the s21+ they gave me, both for under $50 per month plus taxes. I also got 24 month android warranty from Costco as deductible is better and so is total cost for 2 years, as they gave me a promo too Winking Face ymmv.

5G, 25gb (unlimited data that gets throttled down... ) plus unlimited cdn. text and calls for $100-55 credit=$45/month

New cell phone. I got Samsung S21+ in this bundle for 24 months for $1.79 extra, etc.

$47.79 plus tax and regular gov't fees per month for 24 months...

Ymmv...

The big 3 are still very competitive...

Does bell raise their prices annually? I have this problem with their FTTH service.

For over 10 years I have stayed away from being locked into carrier contracts by buying mid tier cell phones outright. This way I would just switch and either get a win back or go/ stay elsewhere...

How much have they raised your Internet / cell phone prices (above inflation) and what reasons do they give?

I am hoping for the best for next 24 months 🤞 Luckily I make enough money off of my smart phones these days not to really worry too much about small increases... My digital marketing business is growing leaps and bounds now, so they tend to give better deals when you add lines or switch to bell business, etc. Same with Telus and Rogers I find.

they normally raise it a couple bucks annually. I find a good trick is to avoid any form of bundling as it's much worse down the road. Go with one service no contract-more negotiation power as we can leave at any time.

The bring it back prices are absolutely insane, Carrier pricing for phones are always high but they inflate them even more for the Bring It Back scam. Compared with Samsung's prices, it's around 150$%. What happen if you return a broken phone in 2 years ?
The posted BIB prices are close to the actual street value TODAY (when you factor in Tx) so there is no way it's worth it in 2 years.

So yeah, I will stick to buying my own phones for now... The days of getting the latest flagships for free + $$$ GC are long gone.

Completely agree.

I'd rather buy phone on finance if I have to (best buy finance/flexiti/paybright) or outright buy open-box (nearly new).

When we moved from WAP browsing to Edge so.. 2G to 2.75? G.. the telecoms differentiated "data" amongst the two.
The old "Enbridge" Bell corporate data plan was notorious.
Same thing when we moved to LTE... and now to 5G.

They'll nickel and dime you anyway they can.
Its not really nickle and diming. Its just good business. Bad for consumers sure, but this is how almost every industry works. New technology is heavily reliant on early adopters. 4G LTE was the same. When a brand new TV technology comes out, its extremely expensive. A lot want it, few can afford it and even fewer buy it at crazy premiums. A year later the prices start to come down.

When seasons change, clothing stores have great sales on older clothing. This is no different.

5G adds 0 value to the MAJORITY of consumers. Those need it or want to try it, have to pay a premium. Just the way it works..
