With two-year contracts out of the way, switching carriers has become easier than it was in the past, though certain fees, in some cases really high, may still apply. For this reason, service providers try to outdo one another in offering incentives interesting enough to encourage customers to say goodbye to their old carrier. US Cellular has just announced a pretty interesting deal. The carrier will pay you up to $300 for your phone with a cracked screen if you ditch your current network.
US Cellular will take off your hands a phone with a cracked screen and even reward you for that. The carrier also announced a number of other promotions.
As you probably know, the vast majority of carriers require customers to trade in their old phones when they port their number from a different network. However, in order to qualify for the trade-in, the device must be in a working condition. US Cellular went a step further and is willing to accept phones with damaged screens. So, if you have an old handset with a cracked screen gathering dust in the dark corner of a drawer, you can put it to good use and score yourself up to $300 from US Cellular.
Of course, in order to take advantage of the deal, you also have to port your number to US Cellular, sign up for Shared Connect Plan and pay a $25 activation fee. Once you do that, you will receive a $100 promo card instantly at point of sale and the remaining $200 will arrive in the form of another promo card within 6 to 8 weeks. You can use the cards to do shopping in stores and online.
That’s not all folks. US Cellular is also offering a number of other quite interesting deals. The first one on the list is “unlimited buy-out” which is aimed at customers who are stuck with contracts but want to join US Cellular. All you need to do to have the costs associated with switching carriers covered is register for My Account and Device Protection+ and present your final bill. Then the network will pay ETF or remaining device balance.
Moreover, US Cellular slashed prices of its home solutions to a mere penny meaning that you can get the Home Phone, Router + Home Phone, Hot Spot and Modem basically for free. The carrier is also throwing in two months of service at no charge whatsoever. Since these devices normally cost $20 to $30 per month each, the promotion can bring you some generous savings. Last but not least, if you refer a friend to US Cellular and that person ends up activating a smartphone on Shared Connect plan, both of you will get $50.
Still having doubts whether US Cellular’s deals are for you? If you are worried that the carrier has a poor choice of phones, you will be happy to know that in addition to many inexpensive smartphones, the network also sells the latest flagships such as the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and more. Taking all the above into account, if you were thinking about switching carriers in the near future, US Cellular’s offer may be worth considering.
