Virgin Offers Pink Slip Protection For Your Cell Phone Service

All bets are on that consumers are worried about losing their jobs. Automakers began using their marketing muscle to draw upon America's job security issues back in January, and this type of promotion seems like it's becoming a bit trendy. Telecommunications is the latest industry to get on the pink slip promotion train, with Virgin Mobile as the lone pioneer — for now.

Virgin's "Pink Slip Protection" offer is similar to what the auto companies came up with but on a much smaller scale. Subscribers paying for a monthly service plan are eligible for three months of free service if they experience job loss. Bills up to $90 a month, including taxes and surcharges, will be written off so long as the subscriber has been a Virgin customer for at least two months.

Does this type of offer make you consider changing cell phone service providers?

Awesome.

If everything about cell phones and their usage didn't cost so damn much - possibly. Though Virgin isn't really that big around here - now if Verizon or AT&T [as much as I hate them] did something like that AND lowered their monthly rates to T-Mobile's range...then MAYBE this would be a good move.

i think that it's a good idea but i'm not about to change my service because of the offer. besides, i have an iPhone and my service is more than that - so it's not like it would completely help me anyway.
