Interested in the new iPhone 3GS, but still under that three year contract with Rogers? Good news. Last night, via the @RogersHelps twitter account, we learned that Rogers has stepped up and offered some very aggressive discounts.
Here’s the message trail from last night that caught my attention.
I bought my iPhone in August 2008, so I qualified for the $500 savings. I got off the phone about an hour ago, having bought the iPhone 3GS 32G for $299 – the same price a new customer pays. To get that, I had to agree to extend my contract by 1 more year. That’s all. I even got to keep the old device, which I’ll probably give to one of my sons.
A sweet deal, no? Perhaps even more interesting was Rogers’ use of Twitter as the medium to get the word out. Although the account has just 765 followers, their choice to broadcast on Twitter was effective as the messages became widely re-tweeted.
