Celebrating 9 Years as an AARP Provider, and Going Strong

We recently celebrated our ninth anniversary as a provider to AARP members. Since 2008, we’ve been honored to help thousands stay connected to great cellular service at specially discounted prices.

That our two organizations would align well is no surprise. We’ve been focusing on offering cellphones and affordable rate plans designed to meet the unique needs of the age 50-plus population for 22 years!

AARP members who choose Consumer Cellular for their wireless service receive exclusive benefits. These include a 5% discount every single month on cellphone plans, as well as a 30% discount on accessories. We’re so confident that AARP members will love our service that we even offer an extended risk-free guarantee—try our service for 45 days, 450 minutes, 450 texts, or 450MB of web data, whichever comes first. If there’s anything you don’t like during that time, you can cancel and pay nothing.

If you’re already a Consumer Cellular customer but haven’t joined AARP yet, we encourage you to do so, and we make it convenient, as well. Simply contact our Customer Support team and we’ll help you with the quick, easy process. You can also sign up during checkout on our website—it takes just a minute or so. We’ll alert you when your membership is nearing expiration, so you can easily renew and avoid missing out on any deals or discounts. And, of course, we’ll include your membership discount on your monthly wireless bill.

We’re proud to provide these benefits to AARP members. We look forward to continuing this special relationship for many years to come.

  8. John Martel says

    I think the new limits on the plans are great, but the 50% increase ($10 to $15) for additional phones/lines, not so much!

  9. Mark says

    Service great, website great. Talking to a human impossible. Two phone calls the past two days on hold for 15 minutes. Send email, reply promised in 5 days. Ordered a phone and the status shows “in process”. Why? I need a phone, my current phone broke. How can I find out when it will ship? Would have ordered elsewhere had I known it was going to take this long to ship.

    reply to Mark

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us, Mark. We send a shipping confirmation email with tracking information as soon as your device is shipped. I was able to review your account, and I see that we were also able to answer your questions about your new phone order.

  10. Larry says

    Shame on you consumer cellular for trying to hide the $15 increase for the extra line. After being on hold for 15 minutes. Today I found out that if you change anything in your plan, you pay $15 for the extra line. Until then you are grandfathered in?

    reply to Larry

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Larry. I was able to review your account, and I see that our advisor, Richard, was able to discuss our new plans with you. Most of our current customers will continue to pay $10 for each additional line of service. We’re happy to talk with you about our new plans at 888-345-5509 if you like. We appreciate you taking the time to post, and for sharing your thoughts.

    Worst company I’ve ever had to deal with. Customer service? That’s a laugh. I’ve had to wait more than 2 hours and they still have not called me back. Will cancel my contract as soon as I get the chance
