as of July 1st, it takes 1300 points to accelerate one month of eligibility...
Yea! Wait, what!? Grrrrr! News is filtering in of Device Upgrade Accelerators are going up in price. Stupid economy.... So, 300 more points per month to upgrade and that's only one reward... what about the others? No idea yet here, but we can probably venture a pretty safe guess that they'll be going up to.
Now, US Cellular argued that with the new Belief Plans you'd be getting more points but your renewal time would go to 22 months instead of 18 months. Now, that balanced out pretty well I thought... more time, more points given. Now we get a month later and hear, more time, more points given to you, but more points to use that accelerator. See the common word there? MORE. The MORE is in US Cellular's favor and not the customers the way I see it.
Well, on the other hand, I suppose it is to be expected. We did just see a first time announcement of a flagship device the same time as the Big 4. I'm truly excited about that and hope USCC keeps that up. However, that phone that I could get next month... now gets pushed back 3 months due to this 300 point/month increase.
Here's to hoping in 3 more months another 4G device comes out.... not sure what else other than maybe a Motorola? Anyways, what are your thoughts on the points increase? Should there be more warning so customers could plan better such as me? Let us know below!
