$200 Gift Card - UPDATE - ~30 days after original post - still no card....

Enthusiast - Level 1

In January 2023, I signed up for a Gigspeed internet connection. As part of this deal, I was told I would receive a $200 gift card - to sweeten the deal. I was informed by the agent that it would take 60 days before I could claim the gift card.  The agent also informed me that in my specific case, I have until May 13th to claim the card otherwise the offer will expire. 

The 60 days came and went. I called and spoke with a Verizon representative who informed me that it can take 48-72 hours after the 60-day period to allow the account to clear of any outstanding monies owed  - this period also came and went and still no email and the card is not available as a redemption on the section of the website I was instructed to look. 

I called again today and I was told a manual process had occurred and this will again take 3-4 WEEKS. This would be pushing right up against the May 13th deadline.

I've been a Verizon customer for over a decade. The level of service has dropped significantly in that time. Please do not fall for the same thing that I did, Verizon is practicing PREDATORY behavior and they are hoping customers will let the deal lapse. A gift card should be delivered ASAP if promised with a contract negotiation. 

I'm highly disappointed with the service and have wasted a lot of time but continue to get the run-around. I've also noticed that the message boards and forums are littered with people facing the same issue. Buyer beware. 

My hope is Verizon will escalate this issue and simply get me what I was promised. 

 

UDPATE: It's been nearly 30 days since my original post. Still  no gift card. This is unacceptable. I keep reading about people experiencing the same thing as me. BUYER BE WARNED, they promised me so much to get me to sign up and they have failed to deliver. Be careful if this attracts you as a selling point, you may never receive the gift card or at a minimum you'll need to wait at least 4+ months and have to call and write to Verizon consistently to get any feedback. It's so disappointing.
