PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Consumer Cellular (www.consumercellular.com), the number one rated cellphone service for the third consecutive year and exclusive wireless provider for AARP members, has launched its EasyPay financing program to provide customers with affordable payment plan options for its high-end device portfolio.
“Many of our customers have told us they are eager to purchase a higher-end smartphone but are hesitant because of the cost,” said Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick. “Our EasyPay program provides customers with the flexibility to begin enjoying top-of-the-line smartphones with manageable payments and without the hassles of a long-term contract.”
EasyPay financing is available for Consumer Cellular phones priced $300 and above. The program works with a simple upfront payment of $100, then the customer pays $25 per month in addition to their normal wireless service bill until the remaining balance is paid. No interest is charged to the customer throughout this time.
The LG 930, which retails for $300, is the first smartphone in Consumer Cellular’s device portfolio to qualify for the EasyPay program. Another LG model, the Escape, will be releasing in early August and will also qualify for the program. Additional qualifying smartphones priced $300 and up will be introduced in 2013 and beyond.
