Rogers Launches Chinese New Year Promo Plans with 8GB Data [u]

Rogers has launched a new promotion targeting the upcoming Chinese New Year, according to documents seen by iPhone in Canada.

The company says starting today, January 24, 2019, they’re launching a “new promotional offer for the Chinese New Year.” The promo says customers activating or upgrading a main line plus one additional line “are getting 8GB of data”. The additional line must be one of the listed $80 Premium Tab plans or higher.

Rogers says Premium, Premium+ and Ultra Share Everything Plans are eligible for this offer. These plans get the following discounted prices as part of this promo:

  • Premium Tab Plan: $80/4GB (normally $100/month; save $20)
  • Premium+ Tab Plan: $90/4GB (normally $110/month; save $20)
  • Ultra Tab Plan: $100/4GB (normally $120/month; save $20)

On top of savings on these three tiers of Share Everything Plans, Rogers says the promo includes 1000 minutes of international calling for 24 months to select Asian destinations (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau to name a few).

This promo is available nationwide (except in SK, MB, QC) for consumer or business customers and doesn’t work with other offers or bonuses.

The documentation says Rogers is not advertising this promo on its website, so it’s only available at Rogers stores and authorized dealers.

If you have more questions it’s best to call a Rogers store about the promotion as they have more details, as the documentation itself is not crystal clear (of course). We’ve reached out to Rogers for clarification and will update this post shortly.

Update: A Rogers spokesperson emailed to clarify the promo is “8GB of shareable data between two lines”.
