[Rogers Wireless] [YMMV] [EPP] 25GB Infinite Plan $52.50/mo, Galaxy S21 5G $7.75/mo Upfront Edge

Retailer:
Rogers Wireless
More offers from Rogers Wireless
Check your EPP accounts.

If you want to add the S21, the total cost is $60.25 a month which is very reasonable considering you'll only pay $186 to use the device for two years and then you can upgrade.

This plan is also available as BYOD as well.

There is currently no SIM fee and no activation fee I believe.

BC residents:

There is also an option for $43.75 10GB and $56 30GB.

Op, you still need to pay $410 for remaining device balance or return the device to Rogers.

Yep I understand that. That's why I mentioned it's an upfront edge plan.

7.75*24 = $186 Effectively renting a S21 5G for 2 yrs
410+186 = 596 is still pretty damn good for a S21 5G

TBH I am quite interested in this deal.
In case Rogers jack up the monthly fee, can you just leave and pay off the Upfront Edge Fee?

I believe the same conditions apply as a regular consumer plan so in theory yes, you should be able to just leave and pay the fee for the entire Upfront Edge and you get to keep the phone. They might also charge early cancellation fees I'm not sure since I've never been through these leasing programs before.

Retired at 38?? What even? The average age of retirement in Canada is 65 lol.

I think I will pull the trigger for this and cancel my home internet Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat

Can anyone share their experience with returning the device? How lenient is Rogers with the return date and condition of the device? Are scratches and scuffs but not broken glass ok?

Consider the depreciation rate of smartphones, I think it's worthwhile leasing and renew it every 2 years instead of paying more to own it, but I have never been on such a program before.

Is the EPP program different from the RPP program?

Same thing, just people call it different names.

This promo is no longer available. Thumbs up anyways. Did you check out, and did they honour this?

Even though it's $7.75/month for Device, you will pay tax on $41.25. iearnt that after I agreed to this few months back.

I just activated a $56 30GB line last night and I think it has gone through. Just checked and you're right, promo is expired.

Yes you do pay tax on the $41.25 but there is a recurrent credit of $33.75 on the wireless service side which reduces your wireless (not device financing) charge by $33.75 and hence you're not paying taxes on that $33.75. In effect you're getting a credit of $33.75 plus tax because your only paying tax on the amount of your wireless service minus the $33.75 credit.

Therefore you're actually only paying taxes on the $7.75. It's more convuluted than it has to be but nobody said that Rogers makes things easy to understand. Yes on paper you're paying taxes on the $41.25 but through the way the credits work, you're only paying taxes on the $7.75.

How do I know this? I'm on a Rogers financing program and this is how it works.

This has been explained in may Rogers / Fido threads from what I recall.

Hi, I had a lengthy conversation with Rogers about this and they confirmed that they are giving customers discount on the device but federal regulations prevent them from not taxing customers for the full device cost. It didn't make sense but they were adamant and would not budge as I was not informed of this when I signed up. You might want to check with them as my bill does not add up unless I add tax of full device.
