Good news for LifeLine wireless subscribers: Now you can get reload minutes at 40,000 retail locations across the country

Until now, only the two largest Lifeline wireless companies could offer customers a convenient way to reload airtime at retail locations across the country. This gave them a huge competitive advantage over smaller companies and limited consumers’ choices.

But those days are over, because Ready Wireless just introduced a terrific new program called AirFair that allows any wireless company – even the smallest ones – to offer reload services at thousands of convenient retail locations across the country.

There are dozens of small Lifeline wireless carriers and they have a combined total of more than two million customers. Current AirFair carriers include ReachOut Wireless, dPi Mobile, StandUP Wireless, MTI, TerraCom Wireless, YourTel, LifeTel, Telecom Service Bureau, Inc, Your Tel America and Affordable Phone Services. Others are quickly lining up to offer the service.

Soon their customers will be able to purchase additional reload minutes at more than 80,000 locations through well-known partners like Dollar General, CVS, Rite Aid, Murphy USA, Cumberland Farms, Stripes, Fred’s, Speedway, Pilot, Travel Centers of America, Village Pantry and 7-11.

Once Airfair-branded airtime is purchased, it will be automatically applied to customers’ existing Lifeline mobile telephones.

That makes the Lifeline program even more competitive than ever, and competition is always good for consumers.

The way we see it, Airfair is a win-win-win situation. Smaller Lifeline wireless companies win because they’ll be able to attract and retain more customers. Retail stores win because they’ll be able to offer an attractive new product. And Lifeline wireless customers win because they end up with a program that’s even more convenient.

Fact is, everyone wins. Well, everyone except the two big guys, that is.

Thanks, Ready Wireless. We think your new Airfair program is going to be a huge hit with our readers.
