Trying to redeem the $200 gift card that was promised.

I am trying to redeem the $200 gift card that was promised for signing up for fios. For a month or so I got the following message: "Our apologies. Due to a system issue, your registration was not successful. Please try again later."

Now finally I get through and and in the email I received it tells me to:

Simply log in to your My Verizon account at, click the "Fios Welcome Bonus" link and view the status of your card.

This link is nowhere to be found. Considering the amount of people that are having this problem, I think its really shady to make it this difficult to redeem something that was promised.
