Verizon Connection Day promo offers free mobile data


I almost never sign up for promotional giveaways. Sure, I's love to win a GoPro camera, a Macbook Air or even a case of Dr. Pepper. But the chances of me actually winning anything is about the same as my chances of getting struck by a meteor. Pretty much less than zilch.

But I do plan to register for Verizon Wireless's Connection Day promotion because Verizon guarantees I will get something I can actually use: 1 free gigabyte of data added to my Verizon mobile phone account.

Connection Day is Wednesday, Nov. 26, the day before Thanksgiving. It's kind of the official launch of the holiday shopping season and it's one of the year's busiest travel days, a day when a lot of people could use some mobile data.

The giveaway is open to customers who use Verizon's More Everything data-sharing program that sells data in incremental blocks. Customers who have an unlimited data plan don't really need another gig. Verizon is also offering some partner deals and those are open to anyone, even people who use a different service. Those deals include:

  • 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi from Boingo Wireless (at airports) and Gogo Technologies (inflight).
  • A free Verizon FiOS mobile app that offers access to popular movies and TV shows from Nov. 26 - Dec. 1.
  • 10 free or discounted apps from Amazon plus two free Audible book downloads for new members and a $10 credit for current Audible members.
  • Free Digital Edition downloads of all 18 Conde Nast Publications, including Wired, Vanity Fair and GQ.
  • Something from iTunes that will be revealed on Nov. 26.

Verizon customers can register starting today, Nov. 12, at and all wireless customers can sign up beginning that day to get an email reminder to return on the 26th to take advantage of the partner offers.
