TELUS US Easy Roam™: $7 a Day to Cross-Border Talk, Text and Browse! #travel #TeamTELUS
It’s Finally Here!
TELUS US Easy Roam!
Like many of you may know, I am a border city girl and since I am literally a bridge away from another country, I play there often.
In fact, I consider the US my second home because of how often I go over and how much I did growing up. I am a huge TELUS fan, that is widely known, not only because their service has always been impeccable for me but, because they also do a lot of social good. I was a happy consumer before I became an official TELUS Advocate earlier this month!
Summer is in full swing and did you know that about 40 per cent of Canadians say that they spend more during the summer than any other season? Between Canada Day and Labour Day, Canadians on average are expecting to spend $1,766 on travel, dining, recreational activities and summer goods. I know that with blue skies and warm weather, I want to be out and enjoying it.
That means our adventures often lead us stateside and our American adventures shouldn’t become a roaming charge nightmare afterwards.
Now, the mobility of my dreams is officially here!
TELUS has launched their US Easy Roam™ add-on and now for only $7.00/day you can extend your rate plan when travelling to the US. I can use the TELUS app and every day or week day that I am there, I can use my phone as if I was in Canada.
This makes me incredibly elated and ecstatic as we are foodies and I love to check-in to places I go and photograph the adventures we experience, wherever we may roam. Unlike other roaming offers, US Easy Roam is available to all postpaid customers with Canadian plans on their GSM network.
How It Works:
Access the minutes, text messages and data included in your Canadian rate plan with US Easy Roam. Your pay-per-use rates will apply if you go over your plan limits.
The $7 fee is only applied when you make or receive a call, send a text message or use data while roaming in the US and is valid for 24 hours.
Please note: You can have US Easy Roam or a US travel pass, but not both on your device at the same time.
TELUS consumer customers on a monthly rate plan (other than a North American plan) are eligible. If you enjoy cross-border shopping excursions or long-weekend stays, US Easy Roam is great for short to medium length trips to the US. If you plan on being in the US for longer periods, consider one of their 30-day travel passes.
How to Add US Easy Roam:
- Text TRAVEL to 7626 to add US Easy Roam to your device.
- You’ll receive a text message to confirm your purchase.
- Once you confirm your purchase, you’re ready to use your rate plan like you do in Canada.
I am stoked that this has finally gone into effect and I look forward to using US Easy Roam often! I’m also happy that TELUS listens to their consumers because I know that I’ve put in a few inquiries and suggestions to them directly. It’s great to see them accommodate all their users!

I didn't know you were that close. I am about 6 hours from the Canadian border – I need to go up there more because it's not far at all.
Yes, you should! 🙂
Just $7.00 great deals informative I have to try it.
My recent post Suicidal thoughts feeling alone in the dark
Very interesting. I'd never heard of this before. Thanks for sharing.
How neat that it is so easy to make roaming less expensive.
I think it is amazing!
I am no longer a Telus customer but one of their sister company. Thanks for sharing this great update on their service.
That's nice that you can do the add-on when you need it. That's really reasonable!
I think so too, it is great to just add it in seconds too.
The one I have right now would cost me an arm and a leg to use, so this is a great alternative!
I am so happy they implemented this as I need it often!
Thanks for sharing this. I don't live in Canada but have friends who do.
My pleasure, feel free to share with them!
This will be great for those who are traveling to the US. The $7/day is good compared to other networks.
I think it is a great deal, especially considering that this is open to ALL customers not a select number like other networks.
Sounds like a great deal from your telco company. We have a lot of providers and to be honest I have no idea which ones are dedicated to giving the customers impeccable service. But like what they say, nobody's perfect! lol.
I have been with other providers and I have to say that I have never hung up the phone and been dissatisfied. You are right though, no one is perfect but I do love a company that admits that!
This sounds like a great plan for those that travel a lot. I'm always a fan of saving money.
Oh me too! It is great even if you just go for a day trip too!
Good to know something like this exists. Will have to use it next time I travel.
I hope it helps!
It really is nice that they're accommodating their users. Thank you for sharing the information.
$7 seems reasonable. Love all the cute pictures!

I think so too and yes, love the TELUS critters.
I had no idea this existed. It does sound like a great deal.
This sounds like a great deal. $7.00 sounds like a great price.
It sure is!
Thanks for sharing! I wish they would have something like this here in the USA. It sounds like an awesome deal.
Aww, that is too bad.
This sound like a very affordable service for anyone who travels a lot!! Thank you for sharing the information because I had no idea that it exsisted 🙂
This sounds like a really great deal. It's a great way to keep down roaming charges.

I’ve always use the services of Telus. They have great customer service too. I’d love to try this new promo.
TELUS is great, they always solve my inquiries.
7 bucks is a great price! I had no idea this even existed! Love great deals!
Save TONS of money!
That's so neat that you are able to not have to call in every time you cross the border and it's already included in the plan. That sounds like ti would make many people's lives easy!
Definitely makes mine easy! It is a hassle to call in every time!
This is such a great deal. I wish we will also have this kind of deal here.
They should have it in your area! Check out the links above to see.
That is definitely a great deal! I love that Telus really takes care of their customers. I will check them out!
They sure do!
That sounds great! And glad it works for you. I have to check our roaming plan and see if it's as good as that.
Definitely, check it out!
That sounds like a really great plan. I'm glad that your able to use that now. =)
I love it! I just used it yesterday.
No idea this existed. sounds like a fabulous deal!
My recent post Daily Examen: A Proven Practice for Powerful Encouragement
It is pretty fabulous, I must say!
My brother in law lived in Singapore for grad school, and we are in the US so we needed something that crossed borders and countries! We don't know anyone in Canada, but this looks like a great option!
TELUS is perfect for this!
The price is right! I have to get a phone for my son soon so I will be looking for deal like this. I worry about my cell use when traveling.
You would not have to worry with this. A great price and always good to go.
That's amazing! I'm in the US, but in WA State so I have some friends in Canada that travel down to the states quite frequently. I'll bet they would be very interested in learning about this!
Thanks for sharing!
I know it can get quite expensive for phone calls and roaming when you're traveling. What a great way to save some money.
I have had times when I came home and cried with my bill! This is a HUGE solution for consumers.
That's amazing that Telus came out with this US roam feature. I know a LOT of people with this provider will be happy!
Definitely, I use it every time I am in the US.
This is my first time hearing of TELUS, but I like the fact that they are affordable. I haven't had a need for a roaming solution in a long time, but will keep this in mind.
