Our most recent Innovation Report shows us that Canadians technology users feel staying connected with friends and family is essential to their well-being. Great! We’re all connected through technology and our cell phones. But the next question is always, “how do I know if we’re on the right plan for how our family uses technology?”
The Rogers family plans provide options for all types of families and their wireless technology needs and a family doesn’t need to be living in the same house or even be related to get one of these plans. Here’s a few examples that might help you determine what plan is right for you:
We text all day long but don’t usually call each other – the Unlimited Family Plans are a great option for a family that loves to text. These plans include unlimited texting 24/7, as well as enough voice minute options to ensure you’re covered but also not paying for minutes you’re not using.
We talk and text each other like it’s going out of style – The Ultimate Unlimited Family Plans are great for families who like to do it all without limitations. Unlimited local calling, unlimited messaging, and unlimited Canada-wide Family Plan calling let’s you talk and text until you’re out of things to say without time boundaries or restrictions.
I can hear you all already. “Whoa, hold up Mel! Unlimited texting and local voice are great, but what about data?”
No worries my friends. Every family plan has data options. Does your whole family need data? If they do, you can opt for the voice and data family plan with 2GB of shared data and the option to add more for those heavy data users. If it’s only a few members on the plan that need data, you can include a data add-on option to any of the individual texting plans.
So this is all great I know, but I’m sure there are still questions out there about why it makes sense to move to a family plan. Here’s a few:
- A single bill makes payments a lot simpler
- The people on your family plan do not have to live within the same household (For example: children away at school)
- A family plan is great for any group of people that may/may not be ‘traditionally’ related (example: couples)
- When you activate one new phone on the family plan, you can get up to 4 additional phones at $0 (each with new activations on family plan on a 3-yr term)
- Starting April 10th there is an opportunity to receive a FREE Xbox 360® with Kinect™ when you activate 2 new smartphones on the family voice and data plan on a 3-yr term
WHAT? A free Xbox 360®with Kinect™?
That’s right. From April 10th – May 21st, new customers who activate two new smartphones on a family voice and data plan on a 3-yr term or existing customers who migrate to a family voice and data plan and activate a new smartphone on a 3-yr term may be eligible to receive a free Xbox 360® with Kinect™ with Rogers Anyplace TV, 1 month free Live Xbox Gold Membership and Kinect™ Adventures Game.
Already a Rogers family plan customer but want a free Xbox 360® with Kinect™? Existing family plan customers can also take advantage of this great offer by adding a new smartphone line to their existing family voice and data plan on a 3-yr term.
Interested in the offer, but don’t need a family plan? Consumers activating a new smartphone on a voice and data plan with a 3 year terms can purchase an Xbox 360® with Kinect™ for only $149.99.
What a great connected entertainment experience for the whole family: a great wireless plan that suits everyone’s needs, the latest devices, and a perfect reason to spend time together playing your favourite Xbox 360® with Kinect™ game.
