As educators prepare for remote learning this upcoming school year, Comcast is offering eligible K-12 teachers and administrators, as well as university faculty and staff, a $150 Visa prepaid card when they sign up for an Xfinity package.
“With learning looking very different this year across the country, we want to help give our educators the connectivity they need to support America’s youth during these unprecedented times,” stated Dana Strong, president, Xfinity Consumer Services, Comcast, in a press release.
Eligible K-12 teachers and administrators and university faculty and staff can sign up for this offer at www.xfinity.com/teacher. There are no upfront fees and no installation costs.
Within a few days of signing up, signees will receive a self-installation kit. A few weeks later, they will receive a $150 Visa prepaid card. This offer is available to faculty, staff and administrators who live in households that are not already Xfinity customers, now through Dec. 31.
The offering comes on the heels of the launch of Comcast’s new Internet Essentials Partnership Program, which aims to connect low-income K-12 students to the internet at home as distance learning plans roll out across the state due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also follows Comcast’s extension of two free months of Internet Essentials service to eligible low-income individuals who sign up through the end of the year.
In addition, Comcast is offering eligible university students who need connectivity a $150 Visa prepaid card if they sign up before Sept. 30.
