Be a Friend, Refer a Friend

I don’t know about you but whenever I see a fantastic movie or eat an amazing dinner at a new restaurant, I can’t wait to tell others about it. I get excited because I want my friends and relatives to enjoy the same positive experience. For me, part of being a friend means passing along good news and sharing great opportunities.

With that in mind, I can’t think of a better time to recommend Consumer Cellular to your family and friends than now. Take, for example, our free Usage Alerts program. The program saved our customers an estimated $5 million in potential overage fees last year!

As the co-founder and president of Consumer Cellular you might think I would be upset losing out on five million dollars over the course of a year (well, hmm, maybe just a tad). But I prefer to focus on the bigger picture. Usage Alerts save our customers money, provide a valuable customer service, and make good business sense.

We know from our own lives that the unexpected can happen and there will be times when our customers will need to use their cell phone more often than planned. We didn’t think it was fair to penalize them for life’s unpredictability (even though many cell phone service providers make a lot of revenue from overage charges). That’s why we created Usage Alerts, a free service that monitors your usage and notifies you whenever you approach your plan’s minutes, so you can avoid costly overage fees. Plus, we allow you to change your plan at any time without penalty.

We also recently enhanced our rates based on customer input, giving you more voice minutes (up to 40% more) and more Web browsing (an increase of 33% – 100%) for the same low price as before. Our rate plan changes were a huge success. As one customer told us: “Whoever heard of a cell phone company increasing minutes on your plan and not charging extra for it?”

Need more reasons to recommend Consumer Cellular? We provide cell phones and service plans to over 500,000 customers across the United States. Our customers get great phones, simple plans, U.S.-based customer service, no contracts to sign -and a money-back guarantee! And, perhaps the ultimate reason for referring us to your friends and family, our customers love us. Last year we were voted the best no-contract cell phone service provider in the country!

Ready to refer us? First, let me tell you one more thing about Consumer Cellular: we offer a Refer a Friend bonus! Whenever you refer someone and they sign up, you and your friend (or relative) will both receive a $10 credit. Now are you ready? If so, just go to and fill out the simple form.

The American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “The only way to have a friend is to be one.” A subset of his worthy sentiment is that “friends share.” So, look out for your friends and family this year and refer them to Consumer Cellular. They’ll be glad you did.
