Never received $250 promotional gift card from switching to Verizon

It took me 1 month, but after several trips back and forth to the verizon store and many hours on the phone with customer service, I finally received a phone and my number.  After adding a line on my account for my wife, we had a horrible time porting her number from AT&T.  Since transferring service providers, we were supposed to be given a $250 promotional gift card.  WE NEVER RECEIVED IT.  No customer service in-person or online can help me and I just want to say that this if awful service.

So sorry to hear about the issues with porting over that number and the concern over the $250 card, timhenn. It is regretful that you have not received the help you deserve with this. This is absolutely not the experience that we want for you. I've sent a Private Note so we can best assist with this.

We are having the same issues.  My husband switched over 5 of our phones to Verizon 12/15/2019 and we have been waiting since they said it can take 45-60 days for the $250 gift cards for each line.  We waited patiently and STILL NO GIFT CARDS????  This was a very costly switch for us and no one can seem to answer our questions.  HELP!!!

Hello there, Jaden190! We are concerned to hear you did you receive your gift card for $250.00, and we would be more than happy to help you today. Can you please elaborate more? When and how did you establish your service with Verizon?

This is happening to us as well. We ported over 4 lines, and NEVER got the promo code and now are being told we waited too long. There is NO PROMOCODE in my inbox, I have talked to my in store rep, online, and phone reps and no one can help. This is a SCAM. I am so disappointed.

I agree!  Same thing happened to me.  I've been to verizon and called and they are saying it's been to long, so u can't claim it now.  Ridiculous!!  They can see the promo in my paperwork.  They said they can't do anything.  You can always do something!

I also was promised a gift card with new service and bringing my own phone. I was told repeatedly through the chat to sit back and wait for the 45 day mark to receive the code via notification in the app. I kept chatting with them to ask if there were any other steps and they said to just wait a month and a half and it would be sent to me. They said they saw I qualified and that it was in my account and just to wait. I am still chatting with them even 8 hour chats where they say they are busy working on solving the issue but never do, eventually hanging up when they get off at 8 or 9pm. This seems to be the Verizon way.. just stalling as long as possible until you just give up. I am cancelling my service.
