Waiting for a credit refund since March 2017 - Incredible!
It's been almost five months since I requested a refund from Rogers for $56.50. I had closed my account a few years ago, but called Rogers in March as I had an iPhone that I had thought was locked to Rogers and I needed it unlocked for my son to use with another service. The customer service rep charged my credit card $56.50 to unlock my phone, but discovered within two minutes that he was unable to unlock it. Turns out the phone was locked to Bell Canada, NOT to Rogers. He told me that the money would be refunded to my credit card as no service was performed. It now going on five months and Rogers will not refund my money. I call Rogers customer service line every three weeks and here are some of the excuses I have received for as why my credit card has not been refunded:
I have wasted two hours of my life that I will not get back, sitting on the phone with these various reps and sure enough, three weeks will pass by and still a credit sits on my closed account. When I ask to speak to the manager on duty, I am put on hold for a good 25 minutes more and then told that the manager is not available. Here is the case number that I was issued during my latest jerk around "Case Number 124759370".
It really should not be this difficult to make the refund: it took Rogers less than 15 seconds to charge my card, it should not take five months to return the money.

Good evening @dignardangel,
Welcome and thank you for posting to the Rogers Community!
I know what it's like to wait for a refund.
Have you done this process through Rogers or directly through your bank?
If you asked the bank to withdraw the payment made, you may want to verify with them directly.
If you need further assistance, we may have to take a look at your account.
We certainly want to assist you in reaching a resolution.
Looking forward to your reply!
