BOGO Not BOGO?

I signed up with a new account in January, 2021, and had a lengthy chat with an online rep. I saved the transcript. My main goal was to take advantage of their BOGO offer. The rep specifically told me that, after 1-2 billing cycles, any payments towards my second phone would be credited back, and the phone would cost me $0. But after 2 billing cycles, I only received partial credit for the second phone. When I chatted with another rep, he told me the BOGO deal was capped at $700, and I was responsible for paying the difference. Again, the rep I spoke to before I signed up VERY CLEARLY AND SPECIFICALLY said the second phone would cost me $0. The rep I spoke to today simply said he couldn't speak for what the other rep told me.

This is 100% false and misleading, and I can't see how it isn't also illegal. I was flat out lied to in order to make a sale, and now I am paying money that I was not expecting to pay, based on the information given at the time of purchase by a rep.

I have about 22 months left with Verizon. I can assure you all, I won't be staying past that. Really bad what they're pulling.

I was also less than 12 hours 5 people and at 9:29am there was a BOGO deal but after a half hour all the sudden no deal at 9:59 the deal ended.  I spoke with 2 other reps from 10pm until 12:30am and all these weird problems and crashes to find today same thing.  I am on the New York State hot line right now.  I have all the transcripts from last night until today.  Then to top it off all the sudden I get a pin number change?  Why? Why do I need a pin number change?

I am a consumer on a budget, and I sincerely understand your desire to take advantage of a BOGO offer, Cyphyr67. Our resources show that all promotions are subject to inventory and all promotions can end at any time without notice.

 

Were you ultimately able to process the order with a BOGO promotion?

 

You mentioned a PIN number change. Were you able to change the account PIN? If you need help, please refer to number 2 under "Create or reset your Verizon Wireless Account PIN" at this link (https://www.verizon.com/support/account-pin-faqs/).
