Rogers Pay As You Go Plans: $75/Yr for Unlimited Local Cdn Text or Local Evening and Weekend Calling

Rogers Unlimited Pay As You Go Plans
This deal has expired! This deal has expired!
If you're spending a lot on your wireless plan and think you could save a lot more by cutting down, Rogers has two plans you might want to take under consideration. Until February 5, 2013, you can jump on the either of the following plans for just $75 a year. You read correctly -- $75 per year, not per month. Here's a look at the two plans available:

Unlimited Local Canadian Text Messaging - $75 Per Year

  • $0.75 Monthly Emergency Access Fee Not Included
  • $0.40 Charge Per Minute for Local Phone Usage

Unlimited Local Evening and Weekend Calling - $75 Per Year

  • $0.75 Monthly Emergency Access Fee Not Included
  • $0.40 Charge Per Minute for Local Phone Usage During Other Hours

As expected, for $75 you're getting the bare minimum here but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you're paying something like $40 or more per month but don't make use of all your minutes or texts and don't need data, one of these plans might suit you just the same and save you a lot in the long run. If you're interested in one of these options but need to modify it with add-ons, Rogers should be able to accommodate which means you can get say an unlimited texting plan with a $10 100MB data add on per month if you wish.

Power users won't have any interest in these plans but these would be perfect for text heavy kids or those who need a phone for emergency only purposes. More information can be found here.

Both plans are available until February 2013.

    • I just looked into these new pre-paid plans. Unfortunately, for unlimited SMS at $75 a year, you are locked at 40c calls always. I suppose this is good for text-a-holics on prepaid who never call anyone though.

      Personally, I've used to following on my iPhones for years:
      call - 1c eve/weekend rate, 39c normal rate
      text - $5 for 250 txt
      data - $1 as needed for 10Mb/24 hrs usage. (great for imessage/email/web browsing on the go when you are not close to any free WiFi)

      I spend about an average of $150 a year on prepaid for my usage, I rarely call except when it's 1c time. Always topping up with $100 cards because they last 365 days.

      I don't see any better options for my usage pattern.

    • this would be great for me...as soon as I get off my 3 yr contract with Virgin....I was so stupid that I signed the contract 2yrs ago with a free 2.5" screen Andriod phone thinking I most likely won't be upgrading my phone as it is really an emergency phone (I had the moto flip for 3 yrs previously), well...2 yrs in, I am at my 4th phone (note 2 now) and I work from home full time, I don't even use the phone feature in my cell phone anymore, only time the phone rings is when the spammers call....so $ 7 a month with unlimited text would be perfect for me...hope it gets even better next year..!

    • Not bad, better than the $100 prepaid car for 365 days expiry

      Although, can't beat $25/year on SpeakOut 7-11 SIM, for a really low usage user

      Yea, the unlimited evenings and weekend plan isn't as good. But the messaging one is okay.

    • thats the key, you have to use the 40c per minute call rate, i might get the nexus 4 and use it on the 30$ mobilicity deal with data

      well it doesn't really say you CANT use it with the 1c per weekend call rate, anyone willing to call in to confirm this or try to add it to your account and hope the 1c doesn't change to 40c rate

    • Koodo's new prepaid service, although a bit more expensive at a base price of $15.00 per month is a better deal for a lot of people since you can add Canada wide voice as low as 5 cents per minute and data at 3.5 cents per MB and these can be continuously rolled over until used.

    • I think i am missing something, what is the difference between ...

      (1) $100 prepaid car for 365 days expiry
      (2) $75+($0.75*12months) for the e911 fee

      I guess (2) is the way to go when (1) is expiring.

      1 - $100 is just credit that can be used with any Rogers prepaid service option . If you don't choose a text add on, you're texting without a pack, you pay $0.25 per message sent or received.

      2 - $75/yr is for unlimited text plan. This is not an add-on pack like ususally done for text options, it is a unique pre-paid plan and you can't select anything else to lower your per minute call rate.

      same here, people can't believe i spend $100 a year on phone service.

      0.25 cents to receive a text? So someone accidentally/purposely sends an SMS to a prepaid number can keep draining your account balance. This should be illegal...

      At the very least, spend $3 a month on a text pack. The free unlimited incoming is a godsend.

    • can this unlimited SMS offer be combined with a Rogers DATA add-on ($10/month for 100MB) ? for my kid who never makes any phone calls this $17 combination would make more sense than the Mobilicity unlimited talk & text @ $15 he is on right now ...

      Yes, I had also considered this as I rarely call using my cell. But be aware that the $10/100MB has an overage rate of $0.15 per MB. So the kid starts streaming video expect your paygo money to be gone!
      For the $1 day/10 $5week/60 options, just cut you off instead of charging overages.

      That's right, treat the $3 like the way an insurance would work.

    • I was spending 100 a year on my old flip phone too, ha. I recently got an Android phone though so I got unlimited text and 100 MB of data with Telus for 20 a month and I spend maybe another dollar or two talking on the phone so it'll be bumped to 250. Still a lot better than 60 or more a month...

      It should be but it isn't.

      That's one of the reasons I got a fairly low text pack with Rogers when I was with them. I never used to send texts because I would always just receive and confirm plans etc with a quick phone call -- and my phone's keypad was terrible. But when the policy changed and it became more convenient (for them) to start charging for incoming and outgoing texts I didn't have a choice.

      Eventually, I got retentions to add a 2500 text pack per month free due to all my faithful years of Rogers service buying.

      +1 That's almost exactly what I have! Unless you need to call during weekdays, there is no better prepaid plan out there. I used to go with the $10/month - 100MB data, but now I figure either the $1 or $5 pass is better. Wind's prepaid is arguably cheaper if most of your calls are incoming, but Wind's coverage is still < Rogers', and you can't use an iPhone with Wind. Wind's US voice and data roaming rates blows Rogers out of the water though. That's primarily the reason I maintain a Wind Prepaid account.
