I just discovered, via Gristmill, that a company I love, Working Assets, has recently started offering a wireless plan. My contract with my current company doesn’t run out until June ’08, but methinks there will be some serious discussion about switching once that time comes around. Here are the deets:

  • Free LG 150 phone with Bluetooth® — a $179 value
  • We’ll purchase 10 tons of carbon emission offsets from on your behalf
  • 1% of charges to progressive non-profits including Natural Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists and Vote Solar
  • Excellent coverage via the nationwide, all-digital Sprint® network service* [Though they’re careful to note that “Sprint is the network provider only; your service is handled exclusively by Working Assets.” Good, ’cause I’ve not heard good things about Sprint’s customer service. Just sayin’.]
  • Keep your current phone number
  • Dedicated customer service that connects you to real help from real people
  • Many individual and family plans to choose from
  • Unlimited night and weekend minutes
  • Free mobile-to-mobile calls to Working Assets Wireless members
  • 30-day trial*

Why do I love Working Assets, you ask? Well, there’s lots to love, but my specific reason is that my mom and stepdad had Working Assets long distance when I was an undergrad, and in their bill there was included fairly frequently, if not every month, a coupon for a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s. I often became the recipient of said coupons. Need I say more? 🙂
