Back in September, Rogers started offering a $45/25GB ‘winback’ plan to customers in B.C. and Alberta, as a competitive response to Shaw Mobile’s same plan for its internet customers.
‘Winback’ plans are sweetheart deals offered by carriers to former customers in an attempt to lure them back.
Now, it appears we’re finally seeing the $45/25GB ‘winback’ plan head out east for customers in Ontario. The plan for $45 per month includes 25GB of data and unlimited calling and texting, with the usual extras.
“Just received a call from Rogers winback and was offered this limited plan of $45/month for 25gb and the usual unlimited Canada-wide calling, etc. This is not an infinite plan. I didn’t inquire about device credits as I didn’t need a new phone. Moved 2 lines over (Rep said up to 10 max),” explained RedFlagDeals user ‘gotmoo’.
The RFD user explained they are located in Ontario and the call received was from 1-833-892-3338. How to get one of these ‘winback’ offers from Rogers? You need to be a former customer and your account marked for an offer, to be eligible to receive one.
