Friends with Discounts

A partnership that started in 2008 and is still going strong:

To succeed a business has to have more than great products and loyal customers; it needs strong relationships with other businesses and organizations. But after so many years in business, I can assure you not all relationships are equal. That’s why I believe the connection between AARP® and Consumer Cellular is so special.

Put another way, it is the rare business relationship that seems so perfect it goes together, in the lyrics from a popular Frank Sinatra tune, like a “horse and carriage.” Although our two organizations are not married, we are both committed to providing our members and customers with a long-lasting, rewarding relationship.

That commitment is a key reason why AARP members receive special benefits when joining Consumer Cellular. We give members a 5 percent discount off their monthly service charges. They also get a 30 percent discount when buying certain accessories for their cell phone or smartphone. And, instead of our regular 30-day money back guarantee, we give AARP members 45 days to try out our service before deciding—risk-free!

Both AARP and Consumer Cellular serve a mature customer base. As a result, we’re both price sensitive, like to keep things simple, and treat our customers and members with the respect they’ve earned.

From my vantage point, it’s a formula that works. We hear good things from our AARP customers every day. James in Alabama, for example, said “Y’all Rock.” He thanked us for increasing his Connect Plan and not charging more for the increase.

Out of California, we heard from AARP member Karen who told us our “price is terrific” and how much she loved her new simple Doro cell phone.

Ana in Illinois, who found us through AARP, said they’ve been able to save over $1,000 in one year. In her own words, what used to be considered “a high bill is now known as a small bill each month.”

With all your other expenses, isn’t it about time you took advantage of a discount? Click here to learn more about the special relationship between Consumer Cellular and AARP, and how it can benefit you.

    I am a Consumer Cellular customer, and a AARP Member. Ho do I become enrolled for product and services discounts.

      Great news, Heinz! It’s easy to start getting a 5% discount each month. All you need to do is give us a call at 888-345-5509 and provide us with your AARP member number. Once we have that, you’ll start to see the savings add up each month. Thank you for posting, and we look forward to talking with you soon!

    We have been Consumer Cellular customers for quite a few years and AARP members so have received that discount. We appreciate Consumer Cellular’s cost, flexible service plan, e.g. sharing minutes, reliability, and wide coverage. However, we are considering joining AMAC instead of AARP. Would you consider giving the same discount to AMAC members?
