TELUS signs exclusive deal with WagJag, gives customers $10 of credits per month


TELUS recently axed their PERKS program, the reason was caused by “declining demand”. It was a good service while it lasted and offered up various discounts on non-related TELUS products. The PERKS program officially ended on January 1st and there was no indication that their 7.2 million wireless subscribers would be seeing something in its place. While competing carriers opted to create their own daily deals site (Rogers has RDeals), TELUS has gone the route of exclusively partnering with Canadian daily deals site WagJag. Every month TELUS will give their customers $10 worth of credits to that they can put towards anything on WagJag. You’ll have to sign up on the WagJag & TELUS site (WagJag.com/TELUS – it’s not live yet) and the credits cannot be rolled into the next month. In addition, as WagJag is not available in Quebec, TELUS stated in the internal doc that “A solution for Quebec is forthcoming”.

Finally, TELUS steps it up by giving a bonus: “As a thank you to our TELUS mobility customers, each month we’re giving them $10 in credits that can be used towards any WagJag purchases in that month. That means on top of the already big discount from WagJag, customers can save another $10 off each and every month.”

Here’s how you’ll eventually be able to sign up:
Step 1: Visit WagJag registration page for TELUS: wagjag.com/telus
Step 2: Sign up for a WagJag account if you’re a new member or sign in to your existing account
Step 3: Enter your TELUS phone number and an SMS will be sent to your device with a promo code
Step 4: An SMS will be sent to the number entered.
Step 5: Enter the promo code to verify the number.
Step 6: Finished. The $10 credit will be in your account

Update: This is available to all TELUS mobility customers with a valid TELUS phone number, including prepaid, postpaid, business, corporate and consumer.

Great move TELUS!
(Thanks tipster!)

    That explains why my bill is $55… bought a couple of good things on WagJag like a WIND USB modem and Dairy Queen Blizzards. They send a lot of junk mail though, so make sure not to subscribe.

      ITS TO HARD TO GET A DISCOUNT FROM TELUS THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU UNLESS YOUR CONTRACT IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE !! I TRIED SO MANY TIMES ITS MORE EASY WITH ROGERS CUSTOMER SERVICE

  • Cody

    not too bad at all. Most all perks were useless in my area so this is much more practical.

  • Marc

    WagJag credits for contact customers only? Or does this apply to PrePaid customers as well?

    • none

      Marc – I’m sure this will be for postpaid clients only. Prepaid clients typically cost the network more than they generate in revenue. There’s very little loyalty built into the prepaid program.

      The idea of perks for postpaid clients is because the client is guaranteeing a portion of revenue that the company can count on every month. Because you are showing loyalty and guaranteeing something, in turn, the company wants to provide some sort of additionally value over and above one of the largest networks in Canada, extensive handset selection and competitive pricing.

  • phil

    Perks were included as part of your postpaid bill. Prepaid clients don’t get bills and likely won’t be included

  • Marc

    @none – But wouldn’t giving the PrePaid customers the deal generate loyalty? A PrePaid customer can switch providers month to month theoretically. This would give them an incentive to stay with Telus versus other PrePaid options.

    If you are on contract, they already have you by the short and curly’s. I guess that this is just another incentive to lock you into the contract model.

  • robyn

    I can’t get it to work…says I need to be “logged in” but I already am… ?

  • onebyside

    @Marc if your going to paint a pic with such a wide brush shall we say “all prepaid customers can’t pass a credit check”? I pay monthly and have no contract, I buy a phone outright and pay every month.

  • Platinum

    Does anyone know if this affects the Platinum Perks?

    • TELUS Rep

      No it does not affect Plat Perks

  • baester

    If this was Rogers or Bell, I’d say, no way to prepaid, but since it’s telus, I actually think it’s going to be good for prepaid too.

  • Owl

    This is fantastic.

  • slapnuts

    It says in the screenshot that prepaid is included.. so looks like its good for all?

  • Jonathan

    I’m a Telus Pre-Paid member….it worked for me.
    A coworker is on Contract with Telus and it worked for her.

  • Jack

    Was able to sign up even if I’m in Montreal and got the 10$ off. I guess I could use it toward something that can be ordered online!

    Now, do these pile up? ;)

  • Dale

    WHAT A SCREWED UP WEBSIGHT..

  • ed tabish

    all the perks you sent me over the years where never any good to me because they where never availabe in my corner of the world. as to your new perk, i would never leave my self so open as to your terms of libality–. good by

  • ED. MCDONALD
