For a limited time, Consumer Cellular is giving away one month of free service to new customers. Subscribers can choose from any plan they'd like. The best plan to take advantage of this offer is one that includes unlimited talk and text with 10GB of 4G LTE data. It's normally priced at $60/month.
There isn't much to this one. Just subscribe to your plan of choice by 3/31/18 and you'll get one month of free service. If you have two or more lines to port over, Consumer Cellular will waive the $15 monthly fee that it charges for each additional line. Talk, text and data allotments are shared between each line.
Current customers who would like to add a new line are eligible for a $15 bill credit.
