An article in early December from Consumer Reports on how to save on your cell phone bill cited Consumer Cellular as one of the five ways to save. They recognized us as having the best cell phone plans in “more than one out of three cases.” Specifically, the message said, by choosing Consumer Cellular, cell phone users could save anywhere from $30 to $40 a month over plans from major carriers, an annual savings of three-to-four hundred dollars.
This is the kind of comment that reaffirms our business model and helps us keep our eye on the prize: affordable cell phone plans for all.
Truth be told, price is only one reason we think our company stands out. Perhaps nowhere is this more noticeable—or appreciated—than in our no-contract policy. Unlike many cell phone service providers, we don’t require customers to sign a two-year contract. Or any contract, for that matter.
We also don’t believe in penalizing our customers whenever their cell phone usage needs change. Our free Usage Alerts program, for example, notifies each customer when usage approaches their plan’s limits. We allow customers to upgrade at any point, so they can save money and avoid unnecessary overage fees.
And it’s not as if our customers miss out on the latest phone technology, either. They can still get a feature-rich smartphone, a phone designed from the ground up for texting, or a handy senior-friendly model with large buttons and an easy-to-read display. Most economical of all, they can choose a free phone from none other than world-class manufacturer Motorola.
Our customers can do everything they’d be doing with a major carrier—only for less. They get the same nationwide coverage. They can choose a phone that fits their lifestyle. And they enjoy friendly, US-based customer service.
Best of all, our customers save money. Why pay more when you don’t have to?
