Rogers thanks customers across Ontario with largest market rollout of Rogers 
First Rewards 
Customers rewarded with over 65 million points since initial loyalty program 
TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Rogers Communications announced today that 
Rogers First Rewards, a new loyalty program designed to thank customers for 
their business, has started to rollout across the Greater Toronto Area, and 
will launch over the coming weeks in Ottawa, Kingston, Sudbury and other 
cities throughout Ontario. As the program becomes available in the company's 
largest consumer market, more customers will earn points for rewards and 
access the innovations and technology they want, just for being with Rogers. 
"Rogers First Rewards is a great opportunity to show customers that we 
appreciate and value their business," said John Boynton, executive vice 
president and chief marketing officer, Rogers Communications. "The Ontario 
launch is a significant milestone for the program, and we look forward to 
continuing our roll out to more markets later this year." 
Since the program launched in Red Deer, Alberta this July and recently 
expanded across Southwestern Ontario, over 65 million points have been issued 
to eligible customers. With the extensive roll out across Ontario and coming 
soon to additional markets, it's estimated that 80% of customers will have 
access to the program and over 1.2 billion points will be awarded by the end 
of the year. 
"We've seen great initial participation since launch. A number of customers 
are already repeat redeemers, especially for rewards like Video OnDemand," 
added Boynton. "By offering additional access to high demand services like 
roaming packages and premium TV content, we're giving customers more of the 
things they value." 
Eligible customers enrolled in the Rogers First Rewards program earn points on
