$20 to kickoff summer! A super deal for June

You’ve got a busy summer ahead. Why not start with some extra money in your pocket? Let us help you connect with family and friends, and save money at the same time.

For the month of June, we’re giving you a $20 invoice credit for adding any new line of service. If you’ve been thinking of signing-up with Consumer Cellular, this is an excellent way to get started. If you’re already a valued customer, it’s a chance for us to say thank you by offering another affordable way to enjoy the benefits of our top-rated service.

Any new line of service counts. Signing up for the first time?  You’ll save $20. Current customers can add a line for a family member—and get the same $20 credit. By adding a line, you’ll enjoy free calls between all phones on the same account. And it’s just an additional $10 per month, per line, to add family members to your cellular plan.

Your $20 credit counts toward activating a new line of service that you add to your account. If you’re purchasing or upgrading to a new phone, you can choose from any of our Android smartphones or iPhone models, our flip phones or use one you already have with our free SIM card option.  Or you can add a line with our Wireless Home Phone Base, Mobile Hotspot, or Consumer Cellular Ally.

There are no special codes or coupons required. For new customers, the $20 credit will appear on the next invoice after activation. If you’re already a customer, you’ll find the $20 credit on your next invoice after adding the new line. And here’s another tip—this is a great time to recommend a friend to Consumer Cellular. They can take advantage of the $20 savings, plus you’ll both receive our refer-a-friend credit, too!

You will need to act fast. The $20 credit is only for lines activated between June 1st‑June 30th, 2016. It doesn’t matter if you go online, give us a call at (888) 345-5509 or visit your local Target or Sears store. Any new line counts! Why not order today? Then, kick back, look for the $20 credit on your next invoice, and enjoy the warmth and beauty of summertime!

    I want to pay my bill on line through my bank. Is this possible?

    reply to Bonnie

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Bonnie. It depends on how your bank distributes payment when you use their online billing system. If you like, we can talk with you and see if this is an option. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we will be happy to verify for you. We appreciate you taking the time to ask!

  3. Rebecca Williams says

    What if I am undecided about using old phone or getting a new one could I get a new one after I sign up at a later date for same deal?

    reply to Rebecca

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      That’s a great question, Rebecca! You are more than welcome to try our SIM card with the device you currently have. Under our current promotion, that would still count as adding a line. If you find that you would like to purchase a new device in the future, we’re happy to make that a smooth transition for you. Our SIM cards can be found here on our site or at your local Target or Sears store. We’re also happy to help you get started over the phone at 888-345-5509 as well. It’s a great time to try our service, and kickoff summer with that $20 credit!

  4. kathy morgan says

    Hey I want to add both of my teenagers to my existing plan but they need a sim card. Also will it work? They have ZTE Phone from straight talk.

    reply to kathy

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Kathy. Yes, your teenagers would each need a SIM card in order to be added to your plan. Activating once of our SIM cards is easy to do. You can pick up a SIM card from your local Target or Sears store, or here on our website. In most cases, an unlocked GSM device will work quite well with our SIM cards, but we can’t guarantee that the phones you currently have will be compatible without giving it a try. If you have any other questions, or if you would like us to ship you those SIM cards now, we’re happy to help you over the phone at 888-345-5509. We appreciate you posting today, and we look forward to welcoming your whole family to Consumer Cellular!

  5. Ron Amerine says

    Our ATT service ends August 7,2016 and wish to sign on with you with our ATT phones. I have been with you before my wife hasn’t. She wants to keep her phone but I want to go back to flip-phone with you and I would like to get that $20 discount. She could sign on after 08-07-16 for $ 9.50 couldn’t she??…Am I making sense? You are half of what we have paid at ATT for two yrs. THANKS

    reply to Ron

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We would love to welcome you back, Ron! If you create an account before June 30th, you will indeed get the $20 credit on your first month’s invoice. Then you are welcome to add your wife to your plan at a later point. It’s just $10 a month, and you’ll be able to share your minutes, texts and data. Best of all, calls between your phones will be free of charge. We’re ready to help you get started at 888-345-5509 whenever you like. Thank you for posting, and we look forward to speaking with you!

  8. Jim. Cashman says

    Why am I paying so much for such little useage ? Hard to believe AARP thinks you’re so great.

    reply to Jim.

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We appreciate you reaching out to us, Jim. After reviewing your plan, it looks like you are currently using the 250 minute per month plan. There is another option, our pay-per-minute plan which is $10 a month, then $0.25 per minute used. If you don’t think you’ll be making many calls, that may be a better option for you. And of course, if you end up needing to change your plan, we’re always happy to help you do that. We’ll be ready to assist you at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to post here on our blog, and we hope you have a wonderful day!

  10. Gaylene Henderson says

    I have Verizon smart phones for myself and my daughter. Our contract doesn’t end until Sept 23. When it ends – if I were to purchase SIM cards now would this service work with our Verizon phones? I also have AARP – would I be able to use my discount in September for myself and my daughter?

    reply to Gaylene

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re so glad to hear that you’re interested in our service, Gaylene. In general, our SIM cards work best with unlocked phones used previously with AT&T or T-Mobile. The best way to know for sure if the phones you have will work with our service is to try our SIM card. We would recommend that you wait until your contract is up to purchase and activate your SIM card. That way you can keep your phone number, and the process will be quite simple. You’ll be able to use your AARP discount as soon as you sign up, so you can start saving from Day One! We’re happy to answer any other questions you may have at 888-345-5509. Thank you for posting, and we hope to see you as a customer soon!

  11. Dee Dee Malaney says

    I am curious how text messaging works. One message is showing up as multiple messages on my usage when I log on to check it on your website. If you have one long text message, does that count as several messages? Do you count the number lines of text?

    reply to Dee

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Dee Dee. If you send or receive a particularly long message, it may be divided into several messages, even if it doesn’t appear that way on your device. In general, a single text message is 144 characters. If you think your usage is showing incorrectly, we’re happy to review it with you over the phone. Just give us a call at 888-345-5509 at a time that is convenient for you. We appreciate you taking the time to post today!

  12. Cindy Lawson says

    How do you pay your bill? Thinking about changing I have straight talk on that you just buy a card

    reply to Cindy

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Cindy. We don’t offer a pre-paid option, and we bill in arrears. You’ll receive an invoice with the previous month’s usage on it. Many of our customers pay by check or debit card, and we even offer a convenient auto-billing option as well. If you give us a call at 888-345-5509, we can see which option would work best for you. We appreciate you taking the time to post, and we hope to see you as a Consumer Cellular customer soon!

  13. Pat says

    My phone has no network for 6/24/16. What is going on?

    reply to Pat

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re so sorry to hear that your phone isn’t working, Pat. First, please try turning it off, then back on again. This will work best if you are outdoors. Your phone will then be able to reconnect to the nearest tower. I took a look at your account, and I see that Alyssa, your account advisor, was able to respond to your email and provide you some additional troubleshooting steps. If the issue continues, we’re happy to help you further at 888-345-5509, or via email at Service@ConsumerCellular.com. Thank you for posting, and we hope you have a great day!

  14. Lisa says

    Me and my husband are wanting to change carriers to Consumer Cellular and we are buying new phones as well but we want our contacts from our old phones added to our new phones. How can/does that happen when signing up with consumer cellular?

    reply to Lisa

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      We’re glad to hear that you will soon be a Consumer Cellular customer, Linda! Most phones have the ability to transfer contacts in a few ways. If you’re using an iPhone, you can back up your contacts by using iCloud. For an Android device, you can save your contacts to your Google account. You can also export with your previous SIM card or via Bluetooth as well. Once you’re ready to make the switch, we’re happy to walk you through transferring your contacts over the phone at 888-345-5509. Thank you for taking the time to post, and we look forward to serving you for years to come!
