$250 gift card scam

Message 1 of 10
(1,262 Views)

The Verizon $250 gift card promotion is a scam.  I contacted Verizon today after 3+ months of service looking for my gift card.  When I signed up for service I was given a total monthly charge and at the end the representative told me that I would receive my gift card after 90 days of making payments on the account. Today I was told that the monthly price included a $20/mo discount and I was not getting the $250 gift card.  Clearly their sales force is doing what it can to sign up customers including lying.  As I am not the only one on the Verizon Message Board that has had this problem, it sounds like they are setting themselves up for a class action suit.  Who else out there has been scammed?

I got scammed too. They're are telling me I never checked off the option for the gift card when that was one of the reason I signed up.

I keep seeing more and more about people who were told they would be getting a card after signing up. I too signed up in April of 2014. With the $250 card for signing up. I called and they said because I only chose a double play that I was not eligible ... from the ad I saw when I signed up .. It said with a double or triple play. 

 

Unfortunately, I do not have that ad .. didn't think I would have to save the **bleep** thing for 3 months to prove my case. You would think ... had it said I HAD TO HAVE the triple play .. I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE PLAN!!!!!!  This is the only issue I have had with Verizon, not holding up their end of the deal. 

 

The service guy was nice and was proficient is installing all the new lines. I am disappointed in the fact that this is happening and the more I look for answers .. the more and more I see people who are in the same boat and feeling lied to.

Add me to list of ones who got scammed from Verizon!!!  I also signed up in April and was to receive a $250 gift card...one of the reasons I signed up with Verizon rather than Comcast.  I had not received anything, and today called and talked to a rep.  She said I was getting a discount instead of the gift card....which is not the case.  When I signed up, the triple play was quoted at $69.99 and I would receive a $250 discount.  I am so mad right now.  I gave all of my information and she said there was nothing she could do.  I am thinking about canceling everything....all verizon services as well as all of my cell phone services through them!
