$250 Verizon Wireless Gift Card not delivered

I signed up as new customer for Fios strictly based on the wireless gift card offer after having canceled service with Verizon because of higher rates to go to a competitor.  After waiting 6 months with competitor and with offer of higher speeds with Verizon as well as gift card, I signed up for new service.  Lo and behold after numerous online chats with representatives (who were relatively helpful but kept swapping me to different departments), I'm now told today (almost 6 months after service was ordered) that the gift card was not part of my purchase from a different rep who was much less helpful or caring to my concern.

How is this possible when I purchased online with the ad in my hand?  I had intentions of purchasing a new phone for my daughter, and now I'm just supposed to say 'ok no big deal'?  I wouldn't have switched if the gift card wasn't part of the package as I had the same TV/internet with the other company at the same price.  

How do I rectify this?
