FIOS $200 trade-in as SCAM??

Hello there,

I got an email from FIOS stating that since I'm a FIOS customer I'm eliglble for $200 off of any phone whose value is greater than $225 when I trade in my old phone and get a line with Verizon. This combined with the $300 credits that Verzion wireless is providing on trade-in would let me save upto $500. 

I dropped in to a verion wireless store very excited about the offer and ready to switch to Verizon from my wireless provider.Tthe wireless store agent told me that he cannot apply the $200 FIOS promotion because the promo does not "pop up" on his screen when he enters my FIOS customer details. I decided to call the FIOS customer care and see why the store representative could not see the promo on my accout. NO one, I mean NO ONE at the customer care had any clue about this promo and I was transfered to the Verion wireless customer care and the guy helping me there said he cannot do anything because this is a FIOS promotion.

I'm a FIOS customer who is eligible for the $200 credit and I cannot get it. Can someone here tell me why? Is it a scam to lure people to the Verizon stores??
