Cablevision Pitches Roses with High-Speed

Publish date:

Cablevision Systems Corp. said Tuesday that it is bundling gift
certificates for one-dozen roses with its latest Optimum Online high-speed gift

Consumers who pay $489.95 for the kit -- which includes a
cable modem, network card, self-installation kit and one year's worth of
high-speed access -- receive gift certificates from Inc.

The gift boxes are sold through participating branches of Cablevision's
consumer-electronics retail chain, The Wiz.

The promotion runs through Valentine's Day, Feb. 14.

The New York-area cable operator ran a similar campaign
last year.
