AUTHOR, COLUMNIST AND FOUNDER OF ELLIOTT.ORG, CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT - 2018 ELLIOTT READER’S CHOICE CUSTOMER SERVICE AWARDS REVEALED
The 2018 Elliott Readers' Choice Customer Service Awards, brought to you by Allianz Travel Insurance, is an annual recognition of companies that offer outstanding customer support and service. The winners will be announced in early December.
Both the nominees and winners are determined by readers of Elliott.org, a leading consumer advocacy site. Customers know who has the best customer service – you just have to ask them!
The Elliott Readers' Choice Customer Service Awards started in 2005 as a recognition of the top travel companies and bloggers. In 2015, it shifted to a readers' choice survey focused exclusively on customer service. Since then, the award has been recognized as the premier customer service award in its category.
This year's categories feature the best airlines, car manufacturers, wireless carriers, and subscription TV services, among others. Nominees include AT&T, Marriott, Expedia and Disney.

This important Index tracks e-commerce traffic across Verizon’s broadband networks to the top 25 U.S.-based online retailers as identified by eMarketer based on annual revenue. So, on November 30th, Verizon’s Michele Dupre will discuss the retail data and insights on digital shopping activity from the Thanksgiving weekend. We hope you’ll take advantage of this in-depth analysis of consumer shopping habits this holiday season, and whether it will be a happy holiday for retailers and distributors.
