Our Tips for Shopping on Amazon

Amazon can be an amazing platform to purchase from if you know how to do it right. When it comes to purchasing a phone, ensure that the phone has all the proper certifications. Here are some certifications to look out for:


· IC

· UL

Jethro phones are certified in all three, so you can rest assured you are receiving a quality product every time.

Jethro also offers the same dedicated customer service no matter where you choose to purchase your phone from. Many other senior cellphone companies on Amazon are based overseas. This means you will often have to wait a long time for your product to arrive, for returns to process, and to speak to customer service agents. With Jethro, you will not have to worry about that because we are based in the US and Canada. This means your product will arrive quickly, returns will be handled promptly, and you never have to wait long to speak to a customer service agent.

To Sum Things Up

There are many ways to purchase your Jethro SC490 cell phone for seniors or no contract senior cell phone plan. Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Best Buy, and directly from our website are all great ways to purchase Jethro products. With each platform, you can be sure you will receive the same high-quality products and customer service from us. Not all senior cellphones are made equally, so make sure to do your research before making your purchase. Jethro is a US and Canada-based company, meaning you can be sure your products will arrive quickly, returns will be handled promptly, and you will never have to wait long to speak with a knowledgeable customer service agent.

Happy Shopping!

P.S. With COVID-19, many companies are experiencing delays within their supply chain, meaning products may take a long time to ship. However, here at Jethro, our products are fully stocked and ready to ship immediately. There’s still plenty of time to purchase your Jethro products before the holidays!
