From 11/26 – 12/24 Verizon will be giving away a selection of tech goodies which includes free Wi-Fi, digital magazines, audio books, music and more. The best part is that the bulk of these gifts are not just for Verizon customers. They are for all consumers regardless of their wireless carrier. However, Verizon customers currently on the MORE Everything plan will receive an extra bonus of 2GB of free data! After signing up, they will get 1GB immediately which will last till the end of their billing cycle and then another 1GB will be added for the duration of their following billing cycle. How’s that for spreading holiday joy? Ken Dixon, Verizon’s vice president of marketing explains it:
“As we approach the holiday season, we wanted to show how much we appreciate our customers. We hope that not only our customers, but everyone, will take advantage of this day—a day to connect with family and friends, to learn something new about their device, or just to provide a little more entertainment during what can often be a hectic kick off to the holiday season.”
