Travelling for the Thanksgiving holiday can be a nightmare. The day before and the days after are fraught with massive amounts of travellers, terrible weather, delays, traffic and crowded airports.
Verizon is creating a new holiday called “Thanksgetting.” Thanksgetting is the day before Thanksgiving and in hopes of making travelling just a little easier, Verizon is making it available to all mobile customers. Hopefully this will help travellers stay in a better mood if they’re just not having it with crowds and delays.
“Verizon worked with a number of top partners to create Thanksgetting, which is centered around a suite of offers that will help keep travel boredom at bay. Best of all, these offers are available to anyone who visits vzw.com/thanksgetting between Thursday, November 19 and Wednesday, November 25, regardless of whether or not they’re a Verizon customer.”
Verizon is helping consumers ease holiday travel with:
- Movies, TV shows, music, e-books and apps from Amazon
- A $5 gift certificate to iTunes from Apple
- A 30-day Pandora One trial for new subscribers
- A $20 credit toward a ride on Thanksgetting Day (November 25) from Lyft
- Airport Wi-Fi from Boingo
- In-flight Wi-Fi from Gogo
- MyRewards+ points from Verizon Fios
In addition to these special offers, Verizon does have an extra gigabyte of data that can be used now and another gigabyte for the next bill cycle. This is especially useful for Verizon customers who get delayed on their flights or who are stuck in traffic.
If you want to make your journey a little easier, whether you’re an AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon cusomter, go to vzw.com/thanksgetting to see what Verizon has to offer. Thanks Verizon! Happy Thanksgiving to you too.
