*Coupon will appear in the Happenings section of the app*
In December (2015) and earlier this month, I reviewed the services and offerings from six different non-major mobile providers (Mobile Virtual Network Operators).
Here are the links to each overview:
After my research, I decided to go with Consumer Cellular to replace my AT&T plan.
Here is the reasoning behind this decision:
- I will be saving roughly $60 each month (and have a much nicer phone)
- Remaining on the AT&T Network
- Ability to bring your own phone over
- Offering of the iPhone 5s
- Offering of a payment plan
- Don’t have to shell out the full price of a new phone at once
- $20 Credit Off offer
- Excellent customer support
I really like what Republic Wireless has to offer, but they don’t currently offer the ability to bring my wife’s phone over.
As I just switched over a few days ago, I will post an update when I’ve been with Consumer Cellular a bit longer. I can tell you, though, that it’s nice to be not locked into a contract!

Even those making millions can be frugal 🙂
You see those things in Washington too, but there’s also a conversion van, a bicycle, a handful of worn-out sedans and a beat-up old Mazda that rolled off the assembly line more than two decades ago.
That’s because the surprise NFC East champion Redskins have a group of stars who are obsessed with spending as little money as possible.
“Maybe someday I’ll have enough saved and I’ll see what I can get,” said starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, who drives a dented GMC Savana passenger van to work. “But it’s better to buy appreciating assets than depreciating. No yachts, no sports cars.”
“There are guys who take [saving money] to heart and try to live that frugal lifestyle,” said offensive lineman Tom Compton, who shared an apartment with Cousins for three years.
