Holmdel, N.J. – Vonage will leverage its recently announced retail activation service by offering Circuit City customers a $200 shopping spree when they activate Vonage’s service in store.
The promotion will begin on Black Friday and run through Dec. 2. Consumers who activate new Vonage service at any of the stores’ GetConnected kiosks will receive $200 toward a Circuit City purchase. Select Vonage equipment will also be available for free after mail-in rebate.
Circuit City is the first to offer in-store Vonage activations through a partnership with GetConnected in an effort to duplicate a cellular business model where hardware is activated before leaving the store.
Vonage also unveiled a new seasonal calling service. Vonage users who dial 1-700-CALLSANTA will hear a recording from Santa Claus himself and will be able to leave him a message. That message will be forwarded to the account holder’s e-mail, making them privy to their child’s holiday wish list.
