Why Are Our Prices So Low?
People always ask us "How do you make money with such low prices? What's the catch?" The answer is simple. Wirefly doesn't make money when we offer you a cell phone for free.
But after you've paid your wireless bills to your carrier, such as Verizon Wireless, Sprint, or T-Mobile, those carriers pay Wirefly for having helped get (or keep) a good customer.
When you take advantage of Wirefly's discounted prices, you simply agree to keep your cell phone account in good standing for the length of your contract. When you do that, Wirefly gets paid.
So there is no catch. You get exactly the same device as the carrier retail store, the carrier gets a good customer, and Wirefly gets paid by the carrier.
That's how everybody wins.
How are you able to charge such low prices?
We have a great relationship with all the top-rated U.S. carriers. They know that Wirefly brings them high-quality customers, and we save them time and money by handling the sales and activation process for their accounts, and by bringing them customers that might not have a retail store nearby.
Our costs are low because we don't run thousands of retail stores in malls and shopping centers. The Wirefly team processes every order from our Maryland operations center, giving us a huge cost advantage when compared to bricks and mortar retail stores.
Are the phones the same?
The phones you order from Wirefly are the exact same devices you'd get from going to a carrier retail store. In fact, as the internet's #1 authorized dealer for Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile, we only activate devices from certified carrier distributors. Every device has a full U.S. warranty, and is never refurbished unless explicitly sold as such.
Why haven't I heard of Wirefly before? You should do more advertising.
We get this question a lot! We spend some money on advertising, but our first commitment is to running a tight ship so that we can continue to save our customers money. The good news is that Wirefly has grown to be the internet's #1 independent cell phone retailer based mostly on word-of-mouth. It's a formula that's worked very well so far.
