You may want to check your Rogers account for some special upgrade offers, as some customers are seeing “exclusive” deals being offered to them.
According to ‘redflagmat’ on RFD, the MyRogers app was showing an iPhone 12 mini upgrade for $2.08/month, with $0 down, on Upfront Edge, which essentially is like a leasing program. You pay taxes upfront, get an Upfront Edge amount credit, then finance the rest of the phone’s cost.
In this case, Rogers is offering $24.38/month credit, plus $190 Upfront Edge device credit. After 24 months, you can keep the iPhone 12 mini and just pay back the Upfront Edge amount, or return the phone.
This scenario works out to $49.92 paid in Upfront Edge financing after 24 months ($2.08 x 24), plus $190, which works out to $239.92 for an iPhone 12 mini, which is worth $825 outright from Rogers. That’s 71% off the iPhone 12 mini, which is a pretty decent deal.
According to ‘redflagmat’, they are on $55/20GB EPP plan and was offered this iPhone 12 mini upgrade promo.
Others checking their Rogers accounts were seeing a similar iPhone 12 mini upgrade offer, but only with $5/month financing and not Upfront Edge eligibility. Some saw $0/month with 24-month financing.
Again, this looks to be one of those ‘your mileage may vary’ deals, so check your Rogers account to see if any special deals are available.
