You can earn up to $1000 per week handing out free government cell phones. But do it the right way.
Yes, you too can be a high-earning free government cell phone sales rep. Companies like Safelink Wireless, Assurance Wireless, enTouch Wireless, StandUp Wireless, and dozens of others need employees to help them enroll new Lifeline customers.
Most positions simply involve enrolling people into the Lifeline program by working at sidewalk tents outside government assistance offices, shelters, churches, flea markets, community centers and other high traffic areas around your town. Often no experience at all is required.
We can’t promise how much you will make, but if you’re successful, you might make $500 to $1,000 per week, based on commissions of between $5 to $10 per customer you enroll. Considering that customer enrollment takes just minutes, those five and ten dollar bills can add up in no time.
Where NOT to find Lifeline jobs
Before we get into how to find these good jobs, please allow us to briefly detour into what is, perhaps, an even more important subject: Where not to find these jobs.
Do not look for a Lifeline job on Craig’s List. Do not look for a Lifeline job at a street tent that purports to represent a Lifeline company. Do not accept a job from an anonymous canvasser who knocks on your door and asks if you’re looking for work.
Why? Because it’s just so damn difficult to tell the legitimate jobs from the fraudulent ones. Instead, we now recommend that you go directly to the Lifeline companies to find legitimate, potentially high-paying jobs.
These devious scam artists claim that they represent one of the legitimate Lifeline companies when they really don’t. They rip off needy customer’s who never suspect that they’re enrolling in a scam Lifeline program. They also rip off good people who fall for their employment scams.
Here are some quotes that come straight from our readers about their unfortunate experiences with some of those scam jobs. We could have added others, but these four seemed sufficient:
“I was working for a guy giving out free phones … He gave me about 15 or so phones to give away. After giving them all I was unable to get ahold of him again to get paid and to get more phones. is there a way I can see my account and the number of phones I have given? There has got to be something that keeps track of this info, right?”
“I signed up for a tablet with a guy that was outside of Walmart, he said it would (take) 30 minutes to activate so I went on to shop but when I came back out he was gone and I gave him my kids’ social security numbers and birthdate and I’m trying to see what I can do about this. I don’t won’t my kids information stolen and used for other purposes.”
“I got the job but my ‘boss’ didn’t tell me where I should setup. I have a backpack full of phones and no idea how to get rid of them. I see people in my area doing garage sales. Could I just set up in a parking lot?”
“I would like to report a Man who signing people up for the free Assurance wireless phone he is charging people $40 to active the free phone. He is on Rockaway and Glenwood road in the Carnarsi section in Brooklyn Ny 11236 in front of Capital one Bank.”
Sure, there may be legitimate jobs advertised on Craig’s List, and it’s always possible that the complete stranger who knocks on your door is for real, but there is no way to tell the real jobs from the scam jobs. And we do not want you to get scammed.
So please take our advice: Although there are many good, legitimate jobs available from the companies themselves, there are also crooks out there just waiting to take advantage of honest, hardworking people like you who just want to make a few bucks to support their families.
How to find a job directly on Lifeline companies websites
We now recommend that the only place to be sure you’re finding a legitimate job is by applying directly through a Lifeline service provider’s website.
We cannot say this strongly enough: The safest place to find a job representing a Lifeline company is on that company’s website.
Not all Lifeline companies offer jobs on their websites, but many do. Below we list some those major companies, a link to their “jobs” pages, and the states in which they operate (so you wont waste your time applying at a company that doesn’t do business in your area).
Each company has a different way of finding new customers and recruiting employees. Each company has its own name for its recruitment efforts. For example, Access Wireless calls it “Careers.” American Assistance calls it “Become An Agent.” Assurance Wireless calls it “Become a Partner.”

Are other Lifeline companies hiring?
The list above includes most of the major Lifeline service providers. There may well be others. If you want to search for jobs with other service providers, here’s how to do it:
- Go to the service provider’s website.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the home page.
- Look for the list of company/website information (where it says things such as “About Us” or “Frequently Asked Questions” or “Lifeline Plans,” etc. Look or a listing that sounds job-related such as “Careers” or “Work For Us” or “Careers” or “Jobs.” Each company will call it something different so you’ll need to look for similar wording.
- Click on that item and you’ll be taken to a page that tells you more.
Good luck. We hope you find the perfect job and make lots of money.
