The benefits of having a Consumer Cellular account include comparatively low monthly payments, no contracts, bundled services and discounts for AARP members. Account holders can change their plan at any time with no penalties or fees, making the plan affordable and flexible.
Every Consumer Cellular plan comes with bundled services, such as caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, three-way conference calling and voicemail. These services are included with no additional cost. Consumer Cellular plans do not involve contracts and instead bill per minute use. As of 2015, for users who rarely use their phones, the Bill Per Use plan is $10 per month and 25 cents per minute used. The additional plans increase in price and allow a certain amount of minute use per month. The 250-minute plan, for example, is $15 per month while the 3,500-minute plan is $40 per month. For unlimited minutes, account holders pay $50 per month.
Consumer Cellular also provides a Family Share benefit where family members can be added to an already existing account for only an additional $10 per month per line, as of 2015. Members can share minutes with one another on the Family Share plan. Consumer Cellular also provides benefits for account holders such as a risk-free guarantee, usage alerts and nationwide coverage.
