Traveling anywhere the day before Thanksgiving is terrible. Between the traffic, the crowded airports, and whiny kids, it's miserable to put it mildly. Everyone wants to celebrate with loved ones, and often that means traveling to see those loved ones, so stuck with travel at a horrid time of year is something you have to accept. Fortunately, Verizon's doing something to help people get through their grueling Thanksgiving travel. Celebrating Thanksgiving with loved ones far away just got a little easier thanks to Verizon. Particularly, Verizon wants to make it easier for people traveling to visit friends and family.
At Verizon, they know that “better matters,” so they're all about making things better. They're introducing a new holiday the day before Thanksgiving, and it's called “Thanksgetting.” Thanksgetting is all about giving people movies, music, e-books, and more.
Verizon is celebrating Thanksgetting and easing your holiday travel woes by giving travelers access to music, movies, ebooks, and more, to help everyone—not just Verizon customers—get through their pre-Thanksgiving travel. If you're a Verizon customer, it's even better because you'll get an extra 1 gigabyte of data to use now and another 1 gigabyte for your next bill cycle to enjoy the Thanksgetting bounty throughout the holiday season. Thanks Verizon. I love this new Thanksgetting holiday! All you have to do is go to the Thanksgetting website at vzw.com/thanksgetting between now and November 25th and sign up. On November 25th, you'll have the opportunity to take advantage of the gifts you want. Verizon partnered with top brands and retailers to create the following Thanksgetting gifts for consumers:
- ebooks, movies and TV shows and music from Amazon
- $5 iTunes gift certificate from Apple
- 30-day trial of Pandora One for new subscribers
- $20 off one ride from >Lyft on Thanksgetting Day, November 25
- Complimentary airport and in-flight Wi-Fi from Boingo and GoGo
- My Rewards+ points from Verizon Fios
- Verizon customers get something additional—an extra gig of data through the end of their November bill cycle, and the entire next billing cycle as well.
