I am wondering how to file a complaint regarding a store manager. On April 30th, my grandmother and I purchased S5 phones from our local Verizon store. The salesman (now store manager) told me that our $250 phones would only cost us $100 because Verizon had a rebate going for $150 off each phone. We purchased these phones under the pretense that after we recieved our rebate, it would only cost us $100. I mailed away the rebates and was suprised to get a postcard in the mail saying the rebates were not valid. After calling the Verizon rebate center, they stated that they had given us the wrong rebate form and that they could submit the proper forms for us. Great. A few weeks later, I recieved 2 $50 rebates in the mail, not the 2 $150 rebates we were told we would recieve. Another call to the rebate center ensued in which they told me the $150 rebates were not valid until May 1st, the day AFTER we purchased the phones. I complained to the rebate center rep who basically told me it was out of their hands and that I would need to speak to the store where I purchased the phones.
I called our local store and spoke to the sales rep who sold us the phones, whom was now store manager. He proceeded to tell me that they "usually would honor those rebates a day early." I said that they did not and that he needed to make this right. I would never have purchased phones this expensive if I were only to get $50 back in a rebate. He then proceeded to tell me there was nothing he could do. I told him that he needed to make this right and I was still owed 2 $100 rebates and he told me that it would be a lot of phone calls and that he was not sure he could get it. I then told him he better start calling because he misinformed me on the price of the phone at the time of purchase. He said he would see what he could do.
This was three weeks ago and I have yet to recieve a phone call back. The salesman made an error in the sale that has cost me and my grandmother $200 and he basically told me "opps, sorry about that, nothing I can do." He misled us in the purchase of these phone and he is refusing to make it right. I will file a complaint with the BBB if this is not resolved. Has anyone had a similar issue and how was it resolved? Should I save my breath and just file the complaint with the BBB? Thanks.
kmschr, you've reached the right place to uplift your feedback regarding your recent customer service experience at that store. Which store did you visit? http://vz.to/1h3etAK Do you remember the name of the representative that assisted you?

Yes, it was the New Prague, MN Verizon location. The name of the manager is Josh and there was another rep helping us, I believe his name was Derrick? I know that Derrick is no longer there and has moved up in the company. When I spoke to Josh about his error, he basically told me 'Oops, nothing I can do, sorry.' He gave me false information and is not willing to make it right. He made a mistake and is not willing to take responsibilty for it and it is costing me $200. This needs to be reconciled. I do not like being misled.
HELLO?!?!?! Is anyone going to address this issue?? I waited patiently for long enough. What is the resolution to my problem here? If I do not hear back from a rep within the next few days, I will file a complaint with the BBB. Please respond and address my issue. lasinah_vzw
This is in reference to an Issue that happened to me ‘Sreejit S’ with phone number ending in 2765 at the Verizon store located at 11198 Washington Pl, Culver City, CA 90232 with the merchant id 0008032849948. My main reason for posting the issue here at a global front is: 1) For the appropriate representatives to review the issue with me and their associates and provide me a solution 2) Provide awareness to everyone to not just accept any offer/sales/rebates without knowing the details. Here is a list down of the activities and the actual issue. I have tried every means to convince the store team and the customer service and no one could help me out of this issue and so ending up adding here as a last resort to receive justice.

I did accept this offer, paid the taxes for the tablet, activated it and took home. Everything was good.

Request to the Verizon Team: Firstly, this is a legitimate request as I have a written note in the Store manager’s writing that explains the deal he gave me. I have the receipt to the taxes I paid for the device, that would surely ensure that the rebates were Invalid the very first day they were provided to me. Secondly, there would be tapes that you can check for the above time stamps that proves of the issue. Next, at my current state, I am very unhappy that this has happened to me and I regret the day when I accepted the tablet offer. But, there is nothing I can do now. I do agree that Verizon as a service, the Customer service team and all other aspects are good except the store and the related management that had caused this issue and have not even tried to address it. I did not want to name the people involved as I am not receiving anything by doing that and do not mean anything against them but I added an indication so that the appropriate teams can work with them to fix this issue. My only request is to provide a solution to this – by fixing the rebates that was promised would work for me OR adjusting the tablet pricing and the monthly charges OR taking the device back and nullifying all the associated charges applied on the tablet OR something that can help me take the additional ~$400 that I will end up paying for this whole tablet transaction. I am paying for a tablet that I am not using, just because someone had to complete a sale and I got mixed up in that transaction. So, I hope that this message reaches an appropriate team who can help me and I am requesting the Verizon team as a whole to provide justice on what happened. Thank you.
Verizon Team/All Customers,
The Verizon team was not able to resolve the issue even partially. The team is unable to take accountability that their store messed up a transaction and made me purchase a tablet giving me a false rebates that did not go through. Now, I would end up paying $500+ for the device and the charges. I really hoped that you could resolve the issue. But, I am disappointed again that Verizon is not a Customer friendly service at all. I suggest that everyone who sees this post are extra cautious when you go to a store and on any deals that they promise. A small mistake might end up making you $500 or more just like me. My next step would be to report at every social site I could before submitted my case to the Federal Consumer court as a last resort. I really do not want paying %500 for a fraud transaction by a Store Manager and the lack of support to resolve there after by his leadership or the entire Verizon team.
