Traveling the day before Thanksgiving? Verizon wants to help make your travel easier by celebrating “Thanksgetting” and offering fun services – even for non-customers – to make holiday travel easier! Verizon customers can get an extra 1 gigabyte of data, too!

Thanks Verizon

Back in my pre-married and pre-children days, I worked for a travel company.  I was fresh out of college and aside from working with some fabulous people, I was able to travel the world. I loved traveling and collecting stamps in my passport.  I gave up my traveling days to attend law school where I met my husband.  A few months after getting married we made a cross country road trip to move to Arizona. We loved exploring the Western US by car. And then we had kids.

Traveling with kids is like nothing I've done before. It's not fun.  When my daughter was two, and I was 5 months pregnant with my son, I flew across country alone with my daughter to visit my parents. We missed a connecting flight. We had to spend a night in Memphis with no bags, no diapers, and completely unprepared. Did I mention I was pregnant? After that trip I swore I'd never travel again until the kids could sit and watch a full movie.  We literally went nowhere for 5 years.

But now days we are traveling again! The kids are becoming excellent travelers and technology helps keep long travel days more tolerable. It's still not fun for anyone to travel on the busiest travel day of the year – the day before Thanksgiving.

If you are travelling the day before Thanksgiving, then I've got great news! This year Verizon is celebrating “Thanksgetting” the day before Thanksgiving.  In honor of Thanksgetting, Verizon is offering everyone, not just Verizon customers, Amazon downloads, inflight Wifi and more!

What can you get on Thanksgetting? You can get:

    • E-books, movies, TV shows and music from Amazon
    • An iTunes gift certificate from Apple
    • A trial to Pandora One for new subscribers
    • $20 off one ride from Lyft on Thanksgetting Day, November 25, 2015
    • Complimentary airport and in-flight Wi-Fi from Boingo and Gogo (super score! I love this service!)
    • My Rewards+ points from Verzon Fios

If you are a Verizon customer it's even better. You get 1 gig of extra data added to your plan through the end of your current bill cycle and the entire next billing cycle.

HOW do you get it?! Just head on over to the Thanksgetting website! Verizon customers can sign up now for their free gig and non-Verizon customers make sure to bookmark that page and head back on November 25, 2015 to access the Thanksgetting Day festivities!
