Cell phones are the most reliable means of communication because catapulted messengers often don’t quite make it over castle walls. Communicate dependably with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a $50 debit card to use toward phones, service plans, or other in-store merchandise at U.S. Cellular.
Recently named the country's best wireless carrier in Consumer Reports’ annual survey, U.S. Cellular carries the sound waves of millions of people on its nationwide high-speed network. Simply supply your contact info and wait two to four weeks for your U.S. Cellular debit card to knock on your mailbox door, then stop by one of the many retail locations and peruse a huge selection of phones, accessories, and more. Android-powered phones such as the Samsung Mesmerize ($149.99 after mail-in rebate and two-year agreement; price may vary) or LG Apex ($49.99 after mail-in rebate and two-year agreement; price may vary) help people communicate as efficiently as telepathic billboards. A variety of plans offer single-line, family, and prepaid options.
Committed to superior customer service and providing a practical alternative to communicating with baseball hand signs, U.S. Cellular offers a bevy of benefits. Earn reward points by doing simple things such as remaining a member, completing online surveys, and referring friends. Then use points to get free accessories and ringtones, or upgrade phones without signing a new contract after the initial two-year agreement is completed. Customers can also swap batteries for free if their phones' juicers are depleted, and premium plans offer free replacement of damaged phones after they have been accidentally dropped in lava or riverdanced on by Michael Flatley. And unlike most wireless carriers, U.S. Cellular requires its customers to sign only one contract; when the original agreement expires, they can extend with no obligation.
U.S. Cellular was named a 2010 readers' choice by PCMag.com:
- It's not the biggest company, but its customers like it just the same. Call coverage and quality were on par with Verizon Wireless, and respondents were much more satisfied with how much they're being charged. – PCMag.com
