New Wireless Company Lets You Enjoy Free Service in Exchange for Rewards Credits

freeup-mobile-rewards-program
There's a new wireless company that's determined to be a revolutionary leader with its new business model. The company, called FreeUP Mobile, aims to give its subscribers high quality cellular service for free. Instead of paying for service, subscribers get to earn rewards credits and use these credits toward their monthly bills.

How is this possible? The secret lies on the FreeUP Mobile Rewards app, which subscribers can use to shop online, complete surveys, download mobile apps, and refer other friends and family members. The app also has an array of coupons for partner establishments, like restaurants and shops, wherein discounts can be applied to. The company currently has thousands of national retailers enrolled in its FreeUP Mobile Rewards program that their subscribers can use.

As a subscriber, you can earn rewards credits when you make a purchase, download a coupon, take a survey, redeem an offer, watch a video, or even when you refer a friend. When you earn a dollar from the FreeUP Mobile Rewards app, you also earn a dollar that you can use on your cell phone bill. Unlike the other rewards programs offered by other companies, you don't have to earn thousands of points to have it converted into a dollar.

To become a subscriber, all it takes is to choose from one of the plans offered by the company:


  • Starter Plan ($10/month) - includes 500 minutes or 500 text + 100MB of 4G LTE data
  • Starter Data Plan ($15/month) - includes 1GB of 4G LTE data
  • Unlimited 1GB Plan ($25/month) - includes unlimited global talk and text + 1GB of 4G LTE data
  • Unlimited 4GB Plan ($40/month) - includes unlimited global talk and text + 4GB of 4G LTE data

Unused add-on data does not rollover to the next billing cycle. Any remaining data on the account gets forfeited. The company runs under an unnamed GSM network.

The good news is that subscribers are free to earn up to $40 while you use the service. If the rewards credits you earn for the month is greater than your monthly charges, it will be cycled to the next month. Balances, on the other hand, are deducted from your credit card or another payment method on your file.

The FreeUP Mobile Rewards iOS and Android app is currently available to download.


FreeUP Mobile Promotion


In line with its launch, FreeUP Mobile is currently running two promotions:

  • Get your first month of service for free when you purchase your SIM card online
  • Get $10 reward dollars when you earn at least $10 in rewards during the first month

The wireless company launched earlier today but will be available at independent wireless dealers across the country in the next few days. You can also sign up for service via Amazon or FreeUP Mobile website.

  2. I hope this doesn't turn into a cellnuvo type of ponzi scheme. I'm not sure if I can call their prices competitive. Red Pocket's $10 plan has 500 talk/text/mb. while free up's $10 is 500 talk OR text? and very little data. And if I'm understanding this right, their starter data plan is completely voip? Their real practical plans seem to start at $25 and again for only 1gb of data isn't that competitive. I suppose it's the possibility of reducing the phone bill through offers which is alluring. I guess we will just have to see whether or not in the long run the savings equal anything substantial. I'm interested to see how they will develop :)

    2. The $15 data plan is data-only. You could use it with a VoIP app if you wanted to but it's sold as a data plan for tablets and hotspots.

    3. I stopped paying attention to CellNuvo when they seemed to be going under last fall. Was happy with them until that, but their long drawn out fix of the problem combined with really poor communication made me put them on the back burner. Never got around to seeing how they were doing again. What "Ponzi scheme" are you referring to?

  3. Mmm... Did they check with Verizon before they chose the name FreeUp? That was the name of Verizon's prepaid service many years ago. If the voice service is VoIP, no thanks. Freedom Pop voice service isn't that great

    1. FreeUP Mobile uses cellular voice, not VoIP for calls

      Delete
    2. FreedomPop is hardly the standard-bearer for the quality of VoIP. There are far better options out there and i understand the new Google Voice beta gets pretty decent quality while only using around 200KB/min while most other solutions use 4-5x that much.

  4. After reading more about this, it seems just like Swagbucks, but instead of getting cash or gift cards, the rewards get applied to your cell phone bill

  5. Well it is still far from free. Watch the credits take months to get a free month of service. Maybe once every 6 months if you re lucky. Who knows...

    1. I agree. It's going to be a lot of work watching videos, answering surveys, printing grocery coupons, etc. For me, not worth it.

  6. I'm guessing this GSM MVNO operates on the T-Mobile network. I entered the IMEI number for my AT&T Samsung Galaxy phone and it said the phone is not compatible.

    1. I'm pretty sure FreeUp uses AT&T. Their site displays an AT&T coverage map and lists AT&T APN and MMSC settings.

    1. Looks like they have Canadian coverage which is interesting

    2. I don't believe FreeUp has Canadian roaming. From their support page www.freeupmobile.com/support/faqs

      "FreeUP mobile service is currently only available in the USA. Roaming outside of the USA is not available at this time. International calls can be made from the USA to other countries."

    3. ok thanks Dennis - their map made it look like it.

  8. Call me when they're offering up to 100GB/mo for $60 or less.

    I can't stream a month's worth of 1080p content on 4GB alone.

  9. A company with NO track record so you have to wonder who would sign up for something like this. Even at 10 bucks it's NOT free. Even the sim they advertise for free will cost you 10 bucks. CellNuvo was a failure so I'll be curious to see how long before this fails as well.

    1. Cellnuvo are doing great in 2018 and paying out monthly. People have bought phones for free now.

      Delete
    2. Yes the starting cost may hurt them especially when cellnuvo is free. As well as the requirement to have a plan costing at least $10 a month. Everything starts with no track record though and you have to give something a chance now and then or there will be no new businesses.

  10. Sounds like Ringplus executives came up with a new scheme. No thank you.

    1. I've said it before and I'll say it again: excessive participation is a non-starter.

      It has to pay out big for your time (at least $1 every 5 minutes), otherwise it's better to have a dialer or sms app that passively serves ads every day to offset a fairly noticeable discount.

      Without either of those, a freemium carrier will have less luck than freedompop when it comes to breaking into the prepaid market, especially with how cheap data's become since to 2015.

      Anyway, unless they can find a way to offer truly unlimited data for $40 or less, I'd wager Freemo's not gonna gain much traction in today's increasingly data hungry market.

  11. They're not going after the same market as cellnuvo which is a good thing.

    Also, seeing that their management has actual experience in the industry, and judging from their website, what they're offering, the multitude of ways to earn credit, the fact that they already have an iOS app compared to cellnuvo not delivering theirs having first promised it two and a half years ago, they also seem to know what they are doing compared to the amateurs at cellnuvo who went radio silent for several months when their customers lost service and phone numbers.

    Anyone seriously comparing this clearly professional approach and launch vs the disaster that is cellnuvo, clearly has little to no understanding of business. Buying phones as a hobby does not make you an expert lol.

    That is not to say FreeUp will be successful. It's that they aren't relying on attracting people with misleading promises and BS ("free" "no limits" "earn enough to buy the latest iphone in a month") but instead have an actual business plan, have identified their target market, have pinned down all the details of how their service will work, and have tested things.

    cellnuvo on the other hand talk as if they do all those things but actually don't. (What other conclusion can you draw when an iOS app is two and half years late, when switching to a new provider results in lost numbers and no service for months, when the new redemption system doesn't work for months, when there is no way to buy a sim from them even though it is mentioned on their website, etc etc ad nauseum).

    As to the target customers, they are not the same as the small group of R+ refugees who became cellnuvo fanatics / victims in denial. If anything, the small start up cost and possibility that you might have to pay for service if you don't earn enough, are designed to keep precisely those type of penny pinching / nickel and diming customers away because those are the customers who cost you profitability. There is a difference between the masses who simply want to save money but who also understand that time is money, compared to those who want something to be "free" at any cost.

    1. I agree if you go after the same CellNuvo market then you may as well shut the doors before you waste any money on the startup!
      CellNuvo and R+ customers are not the best at providing revenue
      for any business.

      Delete
    2. Many of us R+ people are still looking for a free option for our Sprint burner phones. I'm limping along on Tello paygo until a non-Freedompop free option emerges.

      Delete
  12. Well said. The small group at cellnuvo who have already criticized this young company without having carefully explored what it has to offer have a code of ethics which makes paying $10 to try something out unethical.

    1. I agree, it doesn't look like they read the press release.

      On the other hand, and to be fair, when you work for cellnuvo and get paid 30c an hour, $10 is a lot of money. It takes 33 hours to earn, almost a working week!

      Delete
    2. Which small group? I don't see any criticism anywhere.

      Delete
  13. Someone must have already signed up and started service??? Give us your review please! Is it ez to earn credits? Please share with us!
