It’s about time for me to get a new cell phone contract. I’ve somehow gotten myself on the Credo email list, which means I get advertisements from them. I’m not calling it spam, and I think they’re an interesting organization, as they claim to be a cell phone carrier who supports progressive values.
My question: does anybody around here use them? What are their experiences?
I’m not posting this to be an in-blog ad, and I have no financial connection with Credo. I don’t even know much about them. Their website states that they grew out of an organization called Working Assets, and that CREDO gives tremendous amounts of money ($2.7M in 2010) to progressive causes.
Are they legit? Do they provide good service? More broadly, is it a good idea for customers to vote with their dollars? Is it a good idea for businesses to become “red” or “blue?”
