$250 gift card a scam
Enthusiast - Level 1

I recently got the Gigabit package and was told on the phone, I would receive a $250 gift card. I have had Verizon before with my parents and have always received a visa prepaid and was suprised to find that this giftcard was not. I was okay with that as long I could pay my verizon bill with the gift card. I did a little bit of research and tried to follow the steps but to no avail. So I contacted customer service billing department only to be wait 40 minutes to tell me that I can only use this card to pay my verizonwireless bill or buy stuff from the verizonwireless store. What kind of shenanigans is Verizon pulling? I do not have a verizon wireless account with Verizon so what in their right mind would they send me a verizon wireless gift card. Completely useless, after my contract is done no matter how good your service is. This is just bad business practice. I will stay far away from Verizon and I advise others to do the same.
