Verizon Wireless is running a Thanksgiving themed promotion that gives users a a free gigabyte of data this month and another free gigabyte next month.
Verizon is calling the promo Thanksgetting and it apparently applies to both postpaid and prepaid Verizon Wireless customers. There are no guarantees but a Prepaid Phone News user with a Verizon Prepaid plan just tried it and reported that they got the free data.
Update 4:10 PM PST 11/19: It looks this deal is dead. A second Prepaid Phone News reader tried and failed to get the free GB of data. He called Verizon support and was told that prepaid customers were not eligible for any of the Thanksgetting offers.
To get yours go to verizonwireless.com/thanksgetting/ and click the Get It Now link. Based on the countdown clock on the Verizon page the offer is good until 9 PM PST on Wednesday Nov. 25.
Verizon's Thanksgetting page lists a bunch of other promos that give customers a free $5 iTunes Gift Card, free books, music, movies and apps from Amazon, $20 off a Lyft ride, a free 30 day Pandora trial, free Boingo airport WiFi and free GoGo inflight WiFi. These other offers don't go live until Nov 25. The free gig of data offer is live now so get it while it lasts.
