    It seems that Verizon wants to get in on the holiday spirit early and improve their image and profit margin at the same time. They just announced their own unique "one-of" holiday which will commence on November 26th. It's basically a one day opportunity to get some interesting gifts to keep you entertained and connected while traveling this holiday season. What's really intriguing is that you don't actually need to be a Verizon customer to take advantage of some of this:
    • Amazon: Selection of 10 free/discounted apps, plus two free Audible book downloads (new members) or $10 Audible credit (current members)
    • Apple: $4.99 credit toward any app store/iTunes purchase. (While supplies last)
    • Conde Nast: Free Digital Edition downloads of 17 Conde Nast Publications, including Wired, Vanity Fair andGQ
    • Free WiFi: 30-minute complimentary Internet sessions through Boingo Wireless (at airports) and Gogo Technologies (inflight)
    • JetBlue: Free internet for the duration flights between November 26th and December 24th.
    • Pandora Media: Free seven-day trial of Pandora One.
    • Verizon FiOS: Special mobile access to popular movies and TV shows from November 26 to December 1, compliments of Verizon FiOS, by downloading the free FiOS Preview app.
    If you are a Verizon customer, you can get 1GB of extra shared data for MORE Everything plans. This starts from the day you register until the end of your next billing cycle. It also includes an additional 1GB of data for the entirety of the next billing period after that.

    Finally, if you are a Verizon customer, but are not on a MORE Everything plan, you can get a small consolation prize: You can get $10 off a Mophie Juice Pack 4,000.

    Kinda nice of them to do anything like this at all, but I don't see much there that I just HAVE to have. Guess we'll see which Amazon apps are free this time...

    Every day should be connection day, even though I'd never use any of their "sales" except free WiFi in planes.
