My Time As A Verizon Ambassador


My Time As A Verizon Ambassador

**Disclosure: I received Verizon devices and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions.

All good things come to an end and so it is with my time as a Verizon Ambassador, officially that is. I was a Verizon customer before I was their ambassador and I will remain a customer when this program ends. Not only did this program allow me to try some fabulous products, but I met the most amazing midwest women bloggers. Karen Austin from The Generation Above Me became a good friend as we hosted our house parties together.

During my time in the program we reviewed 2 phones and gave away some fabulous products. This is a pretty impressive list, don’t you think?

Karen and I had some really happy house party guests.

Participation in this program has been a real learning experience. Verizon has products and services I never knew existed before, like SureResponse and PetTracker. Verizon stays on the leading edge of technology so that their customers always have the best options to choose from.

The FitBit One has been both a blessing and a curse for me. I now ‘know’ what my real physical activity is versus what I ‘think’ it is. What I thought my activity was is not the reality. Big sigh… I think the phrase ‘ignorance is bliss’ has taken on new meaning for me.

As a participant in the program I was not allowed to ‘win’ anything. That being the case I purchased a mophie case for my iPhone 5. iOS 7 is a big battery hog. To address this issue the mophie case has a built-in battery. When your phone battery sputters to a halt, you just flip the switch and the mophie battery provides the power needed t o keep you going. No more missed texts because your phone battery let you down. Yes. It came from Verizon. 🙂

I am under contract with my iPhone so I will not be switching to an Android phone any time soon. However, my husband is big on Android and has taken a real shine to the Note 3. Can you guess who will be using that amazing phablet?

Finally, I want to express my sincere thanks to Verizon for allowing me to participate in this fabulous program. It has been a real pleasure!

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year!

      Happy New Year to you and yours Jon!

  2. What a great opportunity that was for you. It makes me smile to think how much you've learned about Verizon and the new friends and relationships you'll built from the experience. For the record, I have been Verizon customer from the time they were something else. They are a great company.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Verizon really is a great company. They really won me over with their Verizon nerd guy commercials – Can You Hear Me Now?

    Great stuff, I want to be invited to the next giveaway though!

    That's so cool that you were able to take part Verizon's program. I can totally related to what you write about the Fitbit. I've really liked mine, but the band broke after just three months.

    • Geek Girl says:

      I use the clip to keep mine in place. No worries about a band breaking. 🙂

  5. Jeannette Paladino says:

    I bought the Fitbit months ago and have yet to sync it!

    • Geek Girl says:

      Is that because you do not know how, or you just haven't taken time to set it up?

  6. Oh, wow! I'd never heard of the term "phablet!" It's so hard to keep up with all the new products and developments. Thanks, Cheryl, for sharing your assessments of the various products you tested. It's always nice when someone we know gives us an honest assessment. Good luck with your next endeavour, and Happy New Year!

      Phablet has been around a while, but maybe I am familiar because tech is sort of my thing. 🙂 Happy New Year!

  7. Sounds like good fun, Cheryl!! Happy New Year!!
