Rogers/Fido Promo: Free $10 iTunes Code for Signing Up with Rogers Alerts

The Rogers Alerts program launched last fall and is an SMS coupon service that texts you promotions based on your location. We’ve seen Rogers push this program by offering up incentives such as free Rogers Reward Points or $5 off their wireless bills for customers to sign up and allow the company to access your location.

The latest promo right now might get some more targeted Apple user sign ups, as you can get a $10 iTunes Gift Card for opting into the program for both Rogers and Fido customers. In order to qualify this must be your first time opting in.

You can sign up on this page, which you will then receive a text message to confirm the action (you need to reply back GO). Once that’s done, a redemption link to your $10 iTunes Card will be sent via text message. We just tried this (Fido) and were able to get the redemption code within minutes.

To redeem your iTunes Card promo code, launch the App Store on your iOS device, tap the Featured tab, scroll to the very bottom and tap ‘Redeem’. Then, just paste in your code (you can also do this within iTunes on your Mac/PC).

According to RedFlagDeals forum members, once you sign up and get the card, if you change your mind about sharing your location data with Rogers all the time, you can immediately opt-out of the program. Let us know if you’re going to jump on this.

    Just tried and got a message saying that Rogers is stocking up on iTunes codes and to try back in 1 business day.

  • Same here

  • T_T ?

    I assume the code only works in the CDN iTunes store?

    Does anyone know if you have to redeem the code on your device or can you do so via desktop?

    One more thing, what’s the best deals on Apps that one should get using the $10 code?

  • Wow that was fast. I was able to get a code ten minutes before publishing, although this promo has been hammered by RFD for the better part of the day.

  • Most likely it’s Canadian store specific.

    You should be able to redeem on both.

    Depends on what you need. Check AppShopper for sales

  • Arcsvibe

    Thanks for the heads up! Just got the same message here.

  • tryingoutthisforum

    It is really worth being hammered by ads SMS (in the middle of the night, during office hours, etc)? I’ve never tried but imagine the sms can get annoying? Anybody has first hand experience?

  • zak2010

    For $10 do I really want to have another service spamming me and tracking my location? Probably not.

  • As mentioned others have opted out right away, there’s no obligation to stay enrolled if you change your mind.

  • Seb

    where’s the link for Fido customers?

  • Andy

    I get about 1-2 messages a week. Sometimes none. You can also opt-out right away if need be.

  • SL

    Use the rogers link it works for Fido customers too.

  • Anon

    Yup. The RFD effect. I don’t even bother posting deals there anymore because of it.

  • Anon

    Yeah don’t bother. The less peeps leeching codes, the better.

  • Sikerun

    Just tried again just now and it worked. Seems they have re-supplied for now but how long it will it last!

  • Tim

    Rogers has restocked the codes. there’s a link included to redeem the code directly in the App Store if you’re not near a computer

  • AF

    The code is available now. Just tried and got mine

  • Anon

    Nope. nothing for me yet, and its been over a day.

  • Was able to get an iTunes code this afternoon still.

  • T_T ?

    Sadly, this is a scam. I just tried to redeem my code and it says :”code already redeemed” even though I never redeemed the code and confirmed that with my iTunes account.

  • That’s really weird. We redeemed our code and saw a family redeem theirs with no problem.

  • T_T ?

    how long ago did you redeem? the text i got says 90 days and it’s not even been a month. a few others I know couldn’t redeem either, I left a message with Rogers in their voicemail box, I doubt I will get a response back.

  • I redeemed when the promo first hit RFD. That is messed up if these codes now are saying it’s not working.

  • T_T ?

    it’s a fact. no lie. besides, look at Rogers history. those who didn’t redeem right away get screwed. it’s [don’t give a damn] Rogers afterall. 🙁

  • T_T ?

    Still no response from Rogers. They’re silent on this issue. I wonder how one would go about contacting Rogers regarding this?

  • Try their social media team on Twitter.

  • T_T ?

    I got a response back. I think the call centre is India. Their reply back was sending me the same invalid code again #frustrating
