Rogers Extends Bonus Minutes Promotion On Select Price Plans

In the beginning of February, Rogers released a series of new price plans for both existing and new customers. At the end of February 2010, the company modified some of those new plans to include newer and better features.

One of the more negative changes made at the beginning of February was made to the $50 Voice and Data combo plan. At that time, the $50 combo plan lost its 50 bonus minutes and its My5 option was reduced from My5 Canada-wide Unlimited Talk/Text and replaced with My5 Unlimited Local Talk Only.

At the end of February, the $50 combo package regained its 50 bonus minutes and My5 Canada-wide Unlimited Talk/Text option. Both features were originally set to expire on March 31, 2010. The features have now been extended to May 3, 2010.

  • Evenings & Weekends: Unlimited at 9PM
  • Data: 500MB
  • Features: Unlimited Messages OR My5 Canada-Wide (talk, text, picture, video) OR Unlimited Local Network Calling OR Double Your Minutes

The new $60 Voice and Data combo plan that debuted at the beginning of February is also keeping its 50 bonus minutes (until May 3, 2010) for a total of 300 local daytime minutes.
