In an effort to grab attention during the upcoming holiday shopping season, Verizon has announced it will be giving away loads of freebies on the eve of Thanksgiving, or "Connection Day", as the company is calling it. The deals aren't only for Verizon customers -- any wireless customer can enjoy them.

Verizon says it has teamed up with companies like Amazon, Apple, Boingo Wireless, Condé Nast, Gogo Technologies, JetBlue, and Pandora on a variety of offers including special mobile access to popular movies and TV shows on November 26, a selection of 10 free/discounted apps, plus two free Audible book downloads or $10 Audible credit, and free Digital Edition downloads of 17 Conde Nast Publications, including Wired, Vanity Fair and GQ.

Also on offer are 30-minute complimentary Internet sessions through Boingo Wireless (at airports) and Gogo Technologies (in-flight), free seven-day trial of Pandora One, free in-flight Fly-Fi (Wi-Fi) for flights between November 26th and December 24th, and a special offer from iTunes to be revealed on Nov. 26.

Those interested can head to www.verizon.com/connectionday to preview all the deals, and sign up to get notified when they're available.

Aside from these offers, Verizon's More Everything customers who register for Connection Day are also eligible to immediately receive a one-time gift of 1GB of shareable data applied to their account plus another GB of data in their next billing cycle.

If you aren't a More Everything customer, you're still eligible for a special discount on the mophie powerstation 4000.

“As we approach the holiday season, we wanted to show how much we appreciate our customers”, said Ken Dixon, VP of marketing at Verizon.
