Lose Your Job free trial

It works like this: if you are a paying Bloomberg customer who gets fired, you can request access to a Bloomberg terminal at no cost for some number of months. On Wall Street, where hiring/firing is common, it provides an exiting employee with a bridge to market communications while they’re unemployed, creating customer loyalty in an industry not known for generosity.

It’s technically called the Stay Connected plan, but everyone calls it what it is: the Lose Your Job free trial.
