$250 Gift Card Scam

I received my $250 Verizon gift card in the mail recently. When I opted for Verizon Fios services, the salesperson explicitly told me on the sales call that I could use it to pay my bill. However that is not the case, because there is no option on the bill payment page to use this type of payment. I have attempted to call customer support, but they keep giving me the runaround. I am very disappointed in Verizon and how it seems they have scammed me. Does anyone else have this issue? Or know of a way I can use this card in the way I was told I could?
