Consumer Cellular Giving Away a Free Month of Service Until May 15th

consumer-cellular-free-month-service
AT&T MVNO Consumer Cellular is currently running a promotion where customers can get their first month of service for free. According to the promotion, customers who sign up for service before May 15, 2017 will be entitled to get the free month of service. So if you've been considering getting service from this MVNO, this may be the right time to do it.

In order to take advantage of this promotion, you simply need to pick out the plan you wish to use and add as many lines as you want. Once you have already made your choice, the MVNO will pick up the cost.

Unlike other MVNOs, Consumer Cellular offers phone plans wherein you can build your own additions to the plan. Instead of selling bundled talk, text and data, you (as a subscriber) can choose the number of minutes you need and then pair this with different text and data allotment bundles.

So if you're interested in getting a plan from the MVNO, you can choose from one of the talk plans below and add the data and text bundle as an add-on to your plan. 

Consumer Cellular Talk Plans:
  • $10/month - billed per minute (25¢ per minute)
  • $15/month - 250 minutes
  • $20/month - 1,500 minutes
  • $30/month - unlimited minutes
Consumer Cellular Data and Text Bundles
  • $2.50 - includes 300 texts and 30 MB of data 
  • $5 - includes 2,000 texts and 200 MB of data
  • $10 -  includes unlimited texts and 500 MB of data
  • $20 - includes unlimited texts and 1.5 GB of data
  • $30 - includes unlimited texts and 3 GB of data
  • $40 - includes unlimited texts and 5 GB of data 
Since these prices still do not include taxes and fees, they will still be added upon checkout. Consumer Cellular does not charge overages. Once you go over your allotted units, you will be bumped up to the succeeding plan tier. 

Family Plans

Apart from individual prepaid plans, Consumer Cellular also offers family plans. You can add another member to your existing plan for $10/month.

  1. Last sentence is wrong. All lines share minutes, SMS and mobile data.

  2. I signed up for plan with 5gb data. $70 regular.
    Hope it's easy to cancel.

  3. I wish to use for one month and then jump boat, any snags in their TOS that will not allow that?
    Are they to run a credit check?
    This first month, will CC cover taxes or will I need to pay the taxes and fees?
    Will they take action against us for exploiting this?
    Can I get any plan, like the $70 unlimited talk/text/and 5 gigs of data?

  4. Do we have to keep the line active for 2 months or can I get out after one month?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I was charged zero. You can cancel any time.

    1. What phone did you get?

      Delete
  6. At $70 for 5GB, you should just use GoPhone's $45/6GB plan instead.

    Any more than that and you might as well go with Metro or Mintsim.

    1. You could also go with $40/8GB on H2O or $50/8GB on Cricket Wireless.

      Delete
    2. H2O is throttled and deprioritized horribly in some areas (like mine), and Cricket's system may or may not assign your voice mail to the right number.

      YMMV, but buyer beware.

  7. Are sims shipped preactivated? If not, maybe get another sim near the 5/15 date...

    1. No, and they have to be activated within 45 days otherwise you lose the plan.

  8. We're just using the $70 plan free for one month. Not staying at all.

    1. Is it really worth the time spent carrier-hopping?

  9. so I got a fraud alert today from EQUIFAX. when I logged on, it said that Consumer Cellular did a Hard Pull on my credit report? WHAT THE F@#$! I'd like some suggestions on how to handle this. I'm going to have to go through the fine print and see if it says anything authorizing them to a credit check.

    the link below has a screen shot of the notification

    1. Consumer Cellular does do a credit check. I remember seeing it disclosed somewhere on their site over a year ago.

      That Equifax alert is not a fraud alert, it's a notifigation that a credit check was done. Credit checks do lower your credit score, unfortunately. Seems like a good reason to avoid Consumer Cellular.

    2. CC is postpaid. What did you expect? They don't want deadbeats to stiff them with unpaid monthly bills.

      Delete
    3. You can sacrifice a pull for CC to get a month of service and the hassle of carrier-hopping, or you can blow it on a new credit card with a sign up bonus worth up to a thousand dollars (not counting annual travel credits).

      The fact is, postpaid service like CC isn't worth anything unless you absolutely need the extras...or just have deep enough pockets that you can't be bothered to do anything yourself (like inserting a sim or buying a phone).

      Rather than a free month of service, they need to just transiton to prepaid and compete on price if they ever want to break into the more savvy sections of the mobile market.

      And since that section's growing daily as tech savvy youngsters join in, it's hard to see the postpaid market having much of a future so long as prepaid plans continue to increase their value.

    4. "it's hard to see the postpaid market having much of a future"
      Bad advice. Postpaid is the past, present and future. The vast majority of subscribers want postpaid. T-Mobile alone moves about 200,000 subscribers from prepaid to postpaid every quarter. There aren't enough cheap/thrifty/geeky people and others with very bad credit to change the balance much in the foreseeable future.
      As for CC, they are very successful and profitable, with over 2.2 Million subscribers and growing. Never heard of baby boomers?
      Competing mostly on price is a recipe for MVNO bankruptcy.

  10. Don't all post paid account run a credit check?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Beware if you go over 300 mins or 300mb they will not give a refund. I had to do a twitter threat to get a refund.

    1. This is only a problem for people who are too lazy to read the clearly-stated terms before they sign up, and for people who can't read English.
