  1. Dennis, why do you think that the REBATE is NOT available in 1 County ( Miami-Dade County) in Florida, as opposed to throughout the entire state of Florida? ( Perhaps they're afraid the masses of EAST COAST/NY retirees will riot @ the Cricket Stores of Miami-Dade County fighting over the latest & greatest phones? )

    1. CT, RI and Miami-Dale county have laws prohibiting mail-in rebates. Some T-Mobile promotions give instant rebates where mail-in rebates are prohibited but Cricket isn't as nice.

  2. Cricket wants to steal all the AARP customers from Consumer Cellular. Maybe new Cricket commercials on tv will start looking like all those typical Consumer Cellular commercials with old people talking to each other about what phones they use. Or they'll have old cricket minions taking their place. haha

    1. "Or they'll have old cricket minions taking their place. haha"

      The ones in this post are Florida-ready, as they have blue hair.

  3. Elderly people like talk only and a little text for the most part. They would be better off on $20 plans like Airvoice or H2O's Easygo.

    1. Cricket wants them as they are less likely to utilize their allocated call,texts,data in their plan= more profit and they pay their bills.

    2. The joke's on them with my account. I'm an AARP member and Consumer Cellular customer and I rack up about 6,000 minutes per month. They don't cost me a penny more than the monthly fee since they are in-account minutes.

  4. Cricket wont honor this promotion for me reason being my membership is invalid. I am a valid member of AARP. Cricket wireless are a bunch of con artists
