Verizon Wireless is in the holiday spirit.

The company has announced it will provide free apps and free in-flight Wi-Fi on Nov. 26 — dubbed “Connection Day” — the day before Thanksgiving.

To receive freebies, carriers must sign up (with an email address) on Verizon’s Connection Day website. In return, here’s exactly what they’ll receive, thanks to partnerships with other companies:

Amazon: 10 free or discounted apps and two free audible downloads for new members; $10 credit audible downloads for current members
Apple: Special offer from iTunes (to be revealed Nov. 26
Conde Nast: Free digital edition downloads of 17 publications
Free Wi-Fi: Free access via Boingo Wireless (at airports) and Gogo (in-flight)
JetBlue: Free in-flight Wi-Fi for flights between Nov. 26 and Dec. 31
Pandora: Free 7-day trial of Pandora One
Verizon FiOS: Access to movies and TV shows (with download of FiOS Preview app)

The freebies are a welcome perk on one of the busiest travel days of the year — an estimated 24.6 million are expected to fly for Thanksgiving, according to a new report.
