Connection Day: Verizon Wireless, Amazon, Pandora, Apple, and Others Offering Free Data Before Thanksgiving
Verizon Wireless announced this week a new holiday dubbed “Connection Day.” On the day before Thanksgiving (November 26), Verizon is offering free data to customers who sign up on Verizon’s Connection Day website beginning November 12. In a combined effort including Amazon, Apple, Boingo, JetBlue, Pandora and many others, travelers will be able to download films, music, ebooks, and even use wifi on flights without any data costs. Some specials include access to premium services and free content like Pandora’s Pandora One and Conde Nast’s offer of free downloads from their 18 publications.
Verizon claims no strings are attached for the new Twitter hash tag, “#ConnectionDay,” and users who sign up also get 1GB of free data per account registered until the end of their current billing cycle. This is in addition to another 1GB of promotional data for the following cycle. Users on the MORE EVERYTHING plans also get a discount on a charging device, the Mophie Powerpack 4000.
Pretty cool deal, right? Personally, I figure all my information is already with the majority of these companies, so what’s another email submission? As always, we suggest reading any and all fine print.
