This morning I ordered the $89.99 triple play online - prefered HD TV, Internet 25/25 and unlimited calling with a two year contract. With this plan, I am to receive a $400 prepaid Visa and a free LG tablet. I decided to leave Cablevision after 20 years and try Verizon due to the enticement of this plan.
The order that went into verizon's system however is the not the plan I ordered. MyVerizon shows that my plan is for $79.99 a month with no $400 prepaid card. Additionally, it has a charge for a nonlisted number, an option I did not choose.
When I called customer service, the first representative advised me quite rudely that she could not assist me or give me the plan I ordered and she insisted that I didn't order the $89.99 online plan since it does not exist. I printed the order summary, had it in front of me and was staring at the plan online and she continued to insist I did not order that plan since she could not access it. She then put me on hold for 58 minutes and never returned. I spoke to a second rep who was very nice, acknowledged that the plan does exist if ordered online, which I did, but in the end he also could not fix the error.
Can someone help to fix this error or must I cancel.

I am responding because I do not want the community to think that everything is perfectly fine. I do appreciate your offers to help but I am really unsure what you did. I am the one who spent three days and countless hours on the phone simply to get the exact plan I ordered. And although I was told that I now had that plan, I have no confidence going forward and my husband and I decided that no amount of savings was worth doing contractual business with this company. I have cancelled my order. Have a nice day.

My advice to those entering into a contract based upon the promise of a promotional perk, whether it be a visa prepaid card or free this or that is to insist that the promotional items are listed on your my verizon account online under order information - services include ... If they can list the bundle plan there they can list the promotional items. Take a screen shot, print it. Check that it remains there at installation and within the 30 day cancellation. Check the estimated bill often. Take screen shots. I am not suggesting that this will actually work. But when they say it isn't on your account, you can then at least say oh yes it is.
