I've had Rogers analog cable for decades, ever since cable came to my subdivision. I believe it was Shaw before it was Rogers, then they made a deal to swap territories. The package I had was called Classic Combo Plus.
In 2009 I received a telemarketing call from Rogers offering me a free refurbished SA8300SD (apparently Rogers was discontinuing those) for just the additional digital service fee of $2.99 a month. I accepted. After not hearing anything from Rogers for 3 weeks I called to follow-up.Seems they had not been able to contact me or something and cancelled the order. However the CSR reinstated it and offered me an upgrade to the VIP Package for 20% off, which I accepted. That $2.99 digital charge is still on my bill.
I see the VIP package is priced at $74.98 on the Rogers website and my bill says $71.99 + $2.99 = $74.98. Does anyone here with the VIP Package not see the $2.99 charge on their bill?
As for comparing the Digital fee to the phone touchtone fee, that's a good analogy and makes about as much sense. In fact, the phone company has to convert pulse dialing to tones, which should would actually cost more, not less, yet they sick everyone with this touch tone surcharge.
Prices, etc are fine to post. (if they are rogers prices, etc)
Only personal information (account numbers, addresses, phone, etc) would be removed.
Just saying. I have been here.. a while.
I post rogers prices all the time, etc... the sort of info listed as above, with no issues.
Heck.. in the internet section, i have a post thats been a major stickey of comparing the OLD package prices vs the NEW.
As long as you are posting correct info, and nothing else that goes against the rules, it should be fine.
Sorry to say, but no. I've never placed my account numbers, addresses, phone,etc in any of my posts. I have however quoted what I have been charged, just like the folks above, only to be edited by a moderator named RogersDarrell and was told I violated the guidelines. Unfortunately I can't prove my posts as they've been edited and it's their forum. They do the same thing with their FB page as well.
I see nothing wrong with posting what you pay when it's the same as what Rogers advertises on their website, which is what I did. Perhaps they don't want people posting discounts that have been negotiated so that everybody else won't demand the same.
So is the $2.99 (plus tax) fee still an add-on for any digital package, or is it now buried in the price?
Thanks, that's exactly what I figured. Nowadays, when Rogers is only selling digital packages, an extra "digital fee" would be nuts, but I could see it being added when they were transitioning. I had it added to my VIP.
