    While it is a stupid commercial, I'm not outraged about it.

    Was there a commercial... The link OP posted got me a free GB in November and a free GB in December. Where is this selfishness coming in? Am I selfish because my free 2GB should go to a family in need, maybe feed them a stream of bits. Pay for their rent and groceries with my free GBs.

    Commercial, ad, whatever. And I said selfish country. Not that this particular promotion was selfish, but that the term Thanksgetting is quite apropos for the US.

    Apparently there was a commercial.



    So I get my Free 2GB over the next two months. Plus I get access to free movies and other media that are not included in the 2GB deal just because I clicked on a link. Man I hate those monsters at Verizon.

    Somehow I am not upset at the term Thanksgetting. Thanks OP for all of the free stuff that you didn't give me but only pointed me towards.

    Is this their answer to 3 months unlimited data for free from Tmobile? What a joke.

    I think it's brilliant ... a beautiful marketing slogan.

    No I'm just surprised - I looked it up on Google and Macy's started the term years ago. I haven't heard it up until now which means it looks like it will be more and more used in the US culture. That is too bad...

    I am happy, though, if using the link got Verizon users some extra airtime... :)

    No, it will be Thankscackling: Hillary will still be rubbing her hands and laughing maniacally over her landslide election, until she loses her temper and pummels Bill with a drumstick before she falls into a turkey coma.
