I changed my plan to and ignite internet and tv bundle back in February and was supposed to receive a $100 amazon gift card as part of the promotion. I have never received this despite having contacted customer service twice and being promised a follow up. Has anyone else had this issue?

Hi all, more update as today I received the digital Amazon gift card I requested, I have redeemed it and has the additional $150 balance in my Amazon account. I guess I am lucky enough to have reached the light at the end of the tunnel. But for everyone who has been in the same frustrating journey, let me give you an idea on what I went through so that you may do the same and hopefully receive your gift cards too.
1. I signed up my internet service on September 4th, like most I saved a transcript saying that I was promised the $150 gift card as part of the promotion.
2. Waited, constantly checked email including spam folder, and a few times contacted the reps who had been advising that I continue waiting til the end of the 6 weeks before contacting them again to request for escalation.
3. After the 6th week, October 16th, I still haven't received anything, so I contacted the rep again who promptly sent my case for escalation, but also told me that it could take up to 4 weeks for any update. So I marked November 13th to remind myself.
4. November 6th, I got the email from 'Rogers Communications <firstname.lastname@example.org>' for link to register the gift card of my choice. I opted for the digital because waiting has been long and frustrating. Noted that it could take up to 4 weeks again, so I marked December 4th.
5. November 19th, today, I received a note from the same email above saying my gift card is here. Opened the link, and redeemed it on Amazon to see my balance topped up by $150.
I'm relieved they went through with their promise, but I also shared the same frustration as everyone else. I wished Rogers simplified their systems and not putting customers in a long winding road in all aspects, most importantly their customer service. I hope they are keeping the gift card promise to everyone. Make sure that you all diligently follow up so that you don't lose it or go beyond the time limit. Save all transcripts of all conversation. Good luck, folks.

It's hard to believe this thread has been marked Closed by Rogers Support. This is not even close to being closed.
$150 amazon gift card email received Wednesday (start of service was Sept 3, 2020). Came from: Rogers Communications <email@example.com>. The claim code was accepted by Amazon. At some points thought this would not happen.
I believe the ccts complaint I added expedited this. I asked for root cause to be detailed, and balance of customers to get their promotion amount, but I am doubtful ccts will enforce this.
Hopefully everyone gets the promotion they were promised. My advice is escalate and avoid runaround.

I picked the Amazon since I had some bigger purchases planned through amazon, nice to have a 'free' one with the gift card

I was also told I would get an email to pick either Walmart or Amazon gift card.
However, Mine was just installed very recently on Nov 25th. I am not too sure if that promotion was actually in place or was expired.
Called Rogers over the phone, I must admit, calling them is the worst part. 2 hours waiting any time of the day you call? Such a cheap company!
My mistake to get Rogers. I ain't ready to waste my life calling them and waiting for 2 hours every single time. I would probably go back to BELL atleast they don't make me wait and making me hear some stupid music!
What a service!

Everything was installed in late September, I called twice and both times was told the gift cards are delayed, but I should receive an email soon though. It's now December and still no luck on the gift card. I check my email everyday including the junk folder so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have missed it.

Hi everybody, I finally got an email from firstname.lastname@example.org after emailing email@example.com and constantly messaging Rogers moderator on the forums. One moderator was able to forward my case to the customer care but also advised me to message them separately to reach out to them. The email was also not in my spam folder but rather the primary inbox. Do search for "firstname.lastname@example.org" occasionally as you could possibly have missed the email!

I activated my home services with Rogers in mid-September (phone, TV and Ignite Internet); registered with HelloWorld on November 6th after following up with Rogers about the registration link that never came. I have sent three separate emails to HelloWorld and have not received anything back from them with exception to the first email that confirmed contact and provided a reference number. I expect my gift card will be issued at any time?!?! This is ridiculous, there is no one to reach out about this at HelloWorld as they actively ignore any written correspondence. I trust someone at Rogers is able to address this?

In the same boat. We need to file for a consumers complaint.
If i'm pay my service fees late, I get dinged with late charges. Yet Rogers can break their 6 weeks promise on a $150 GC!

Greetings @JS40, @JuanD, @Marinacacic, @danieljai_2020,
A very warm welcome to the community, we hope you enjoy your time here! 😊
We understand that you've been experiencing some delays with receiving your gift cards. Please see below for the anticipated timelines of how the offer works:
- Installation of Ignite TV services must occur within 30 days of the offer being presented in order to be considered eligible.
- Up to 6 weeks after your installation, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to register for your gift card (you’ll have the choice of a physical or electronic gift card).
- Please be sure to also check your junk mail folder, should the email end up there inadvertently. You'll have up to 45 days to action the email before your eligibility runs out.
- Once you’ve successfully registered for the card you can expect to receive your electronic gift card within 1-2 weeks (by email) or the physical gift card within 3-4 weeks (by mail), depending on the option selected.
If the allotted time has passed and you either have not received the initial email to register OR you have already successfully registered and have not received your gift card in a reasonable amount of time, please send us a PM so we can investigate further.
If you or Rogers has already escalated an email to the third party vendor and you received an email confirmation acknowledging your request, **PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM ANY FURTHER EMAILS** and please wait for your escalation to be investigated and actioned at their end. It may take up to 4 weeks to receive a registration email in your inbox. After you’ve successfully registered for the card, electronic gift cards take 1-2 weeks to arrive. Physical gift cards take 3-4 weeks and will arrive in the mail. NOTE: The email may come from either email@example.com OR firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not receive your registration email within 4 weeks of escalating, please send us a PM so we may investigate further.
For more information on how our Private Messaging system works, please check out our blog.
Thank you kindly!

Thanks for nothing Laura I’ve already heard all of this and it means absolutely nothing like I said you keep on telling me six weeks then another four weeks and another six weeks and then another four weeks so what you’re telling me is futile frustrating and absolutely not the case. These are perfunctory stock responses that you have copied and pasted from some sort of manual that’s been given to you it doesn’t resolve any issue at all and apparently I’m not the only one so please keep your apologies and stop telling me to check my junk mail. I’ve heard the same script from every person that I’ve spoken to and it still hasn’t been resolved.
