US Cellular - Holiday BLOWOUT!

Hey ladies and gents.....

I don't want this thread to turn into any level of competitor nonsense or strategic positioning debates.

I want to simply post up a GREAT opportunity that current existing customers of US Cellular and ESPECIALLY potential new customers are taking advantage of as of yesterday through Christmas eve (The 24th).

Right now its this simple, we've got the MOST aggressive campaign going right now for our holiday sale and here it is.

EVERY PHONE IN STORE EITHER INSTANTLY FREE OR FREE AFTER REBATE!
(And we also have the samsung tablet for sale as well)

No matter the phone, even our Samsung Galaxy S/Mesmerize that typically goes for 280 - 199 after mail in rebate is only $80 in store throughout the sale while supplies last.

So in a nutshell all of our phones are free instantly, 50 or 80 dollars in store right now, and ALL eligible to receive mail in rebates.

ALSO!!!

NEW CUSTOMERS WHO ACTIVATE "SMART" PHONES in this same time period will receive a $100 dollar bill credit for activation with us, up to as many as 6 LINES per account (Do the math )

Again this isn't intended to be some gimmicky sales tactic and I could really care less if you come to see me personally at my store, feel free to visit which ever store is closest to you. But there's a lot of great folks on here also with children they may be looking to get phones for and/or looking for an opportunity to change to another carrier...

Whatever your situation looks like, I'm purely extending this information out as a friendly heads up, and if it's helps in saving anyone money or helping in your situation whatever that may be then enjoy....

IF YOU DO NOT CHOOSE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE AND REMAIN TO BE AN AMBASSADOR TO ANOTHER CARRIER, THATS FINE TOO, JUST DON'T CLOUD UP MY THREAD WITH COMPETITOR NONSENSE....

Thanks and hope this may help even a few

P.S. If anyone actually has any questions regarding the sale/company feel free to ask.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!

Btw, just a few pleasing references for your viewing pleasure.....

How does that compete with Sprint's $69.99 everything plan? I'm not really concerned with a replacement plan...not sure what reward points do with a phone.

The difference is the minutes are you really going to use them?

Ohh and service and customer service are unparalleled to sprint... TO THE GOOD! But if its price, then this may not be the PERFECT plan for you...

I can do $69 for unlimited txt/pic/vid, internet, and 450 minutes if your not a big peek time outbound user... (Plan includes unlimited Incoming/N&W and M2M.

I have a favor to ask..

It’s something that needs a little discretion from your average US Cell employee and so perhaps a fellow CLSB’er could help me out?
I have been with US Cell service since before they bought it from PrimeCo, but I’ve had an affiliate (employee) account, for the past umpteen years.
I no longer work at a Cell phone store, but managed to keep the discounted rates this whole time.

What I used to do, is just buy my cell phone at the full rate and activate it with no issues, the last time I did this they asked a lot of questions about who my employer was and to see my local rep.
I don’t think I can fly under the radar again if I purchase another phone.

Any suggestions on how I can get a new phone without drawing a bunch of red flags?

Each vendor's overlay (HTC, Samsung, & Motorola) UI is slightly different.

Long-press on the widget. The home screen should grey out and at the bottom, a trash can should appear. While still holding the widget, drag it there to toss it out.

Screw it... it's a slow morning, I'm going to start that thread shortly, along with a quick FAQ and links to other shit.
