$300 Visa debit card scam

I also seem to be a victim of the $300 Visa gift card scam.  I signed up in July and have been patiently waiting the 90 days to receive my gift card.  After chatting and speaking to reps I was told that I was not entitled to the gift card since I choose a plan with a better discount. When I signed up there was no choice for a better discount, there was only the option of signing a 2 year contract and receiving the $300 gift card.  There was absolutely nowhere on the website that said I was choosing a different plan and not receiving the gift card.  I feel better reading other posts of customers who have had the same exact problem, but I am outraged about the false advertising that Verizon used for this promotion.  At this point I see no other option than to file a complaint with the better business bureau and warn other people not to fall for this scam.
