$500 off iPhone 3GS if you have a data plan and extend contract for 1 year: Rogers

https://www.rogers.com/web/content/w...nch_LowerBadge

Do you spend more than $100 per month on Rogers wireless services?

Do you have or would you get a data plan?

Did you buy a Rogers iPhone 3G between July 11 and September 30 last year?

Save $500 on the iPhone 3GS.

Until December 31, 2009, if you have subscribed to a data plan which includes at least 1GB of data you may use tethering as part of the volume of data included in your plan at no additional charge.

It was tempting until I read the part about having to extend your contract for another year.
Besides, I don't spend over $100/mth. so I'd be forking out $449.

Offer 2:
If you are an existing iPhone 3G customer who activated or upgraded to your iPhone 3G from July 11-Sep 30 2008 and have consistently spent on average of $100 or more each month on your Rogers wireless services you will get $500 off the no-term price of an iPhone 3GS, provided that you have a data plan and extend your service agreement by 1 year.

The $99 (or $100) doesn't all have to be spent on one line:

That was my next question, we have 2 iPhones, one is with the 6GB plan (about $74 total) and one is just voice, VVM pkg (about $40), so about $120 for both monthly on one bill.
Yahoo, I'll be getting a new 3GS sooner than I had planned....

Funny, I called my closest Rogers store yesterday and they said they are not going to be outright selling them. They told me I'd have to go to the Apple store.
Obviously, they get bucks from the plans they sell.
They just lost any future business from me, even though I dealt with them for both of my present phones...

Hmmm, suddenly I qualify. That's actually very tempting.

I both hate an love Apple for coming out with new products that make the previous generation look like a piece of garbage in comparison.

Can two iPhones can share the same voice plan, Value Pack, and bucket of minutes? I know there used to be a couples plan, I can never keep up at the rate Rogers changes their rate plans.

This might actually work. My sister broke her 3G screen and I'm not really that comfortable changing it (looks pretty hard and she could be left phone-less). So I could get the 3Gs and give her my 3G... I love getting new stuff and this could be my excuse <insert evil laugh>.

I just talked to a very knowledgeable CSR at Rogers. She said that I do qualify for the 32 iPhone at $299. She also gave me an interaction # as proof of this.

If the Rogers store near me, starts to give me grief about buying the new 3GS outright, she said I can lodge a complaint, which she will send right to the top.
She suggested ordering it through them, but I want it sooner than 5 days or whenever it might get here.

I'd go to the Apple store, but it's just not as convenient as the Rogers store near me. I'm sure there will be a long line up also.

I hear you about the newest stuff from Apple.
Unless something has changed recently, no sharing a plan between 2 iPhones.
I think that plan is for the cheapo phones (I think).

Not sure I follow: do you want an outright purchase, or the discounted price? The discount requires contract extension, etc.

Sorry, I should have added that I will extend my contract for another year. No hesitation on this.

I have never had any problems with Rogers and have also been a customer for many many years, dating back to their Cantel days.
