America’s largest service provider is releasing a series of freebies as an early start to the madness of Thanksgiving’s Black Friday sales.
The hand outs will be available on November 26th on what Verizon has dubbed “Connection Day”, and gifts will include free streaming of ad-free music from Pandora, Free “flyfi” on Jet Blue flights, free downloads of the latest issues of Condé Nast magazines (Wired, GQ, Vogue, The New Yorker and more), along with a number of unannounced iTunes offers.
There’s a lot more to connection day from Verizon, and they’ve partnered with other business like Amazon and Hulu to provide great giveaways ranging from free song and app credits on the Amazon digital marketplace to free audiobooks from Audible.
Is this a new trend in the digital market? Do you think companies will continue forming these kinds of partnerships for future seasonal sales? How do you think they’ll do in terms of profit? Let us know what you think in the comments!
