Holiday season promos

It’s the season of getting–and giving–great gifts, and Verizon has the best deals all holiday season long.

And the best part? Many of our great deals are already available, so you can feel that savings rush before the holiday rush.

Here’s a sneak peak of some of our Black Friday offers:

Tips for holiday cooking

Aside from shopping, another great aspect of the holiday season is all the delicious food. We shared a video of chef Spencer Plaut, who showed us all his tips and tricks to bring your holiday gatherings to life.

For more tips and recipes, the Global Real Estate Workplace Delivery FOODS team has you covered with the FOODS Holiday Time recipe book,’ a collection of culturally-inspired recipes and stories for you to enjoy with your families.

Thanksgiving dinner talk

On the subject of food,while you’re at the dinner table this season, you don’t have to talk about work, but you should talk about our awesome deals!

Let’s face it: we all have that one family member who knows you work at Verizon and always wants some help troubleshooting. So, if any technical difficulties come up at the dinner table, make sure you check out our recent 3 Questions with Nancy Clark, where she talks about our Ambassador Care program, created so you can get your friends and family the specialized customer service they need to resolve their mobile or Fios concerns.

We’ve got you covered for the network, too, so, if you get any feedback about specific areas where we can improve our network experience, fill out the network feedback form that Joe Russo shared with us to ensure we improve or resolve any issues we may have.

Looking ahead

Raquel ended the show by teasing Tuesday’s Up To Speed episode, which will include a special thank you to our V Team.
