Why hasn't my trade in credit been applied?

I signed up for the promo in store. The iPhone 7 was shipped directly to my house. My old iPhone 6 was sent back in the supplied box. On 11/03/16 I got a confirmation email that it was received and that the estimated value ($650.00) was accurate. It stated my monthly credit of $27.08 would appear on my bill in 2-3 billing cycles. I've paid 4 monthly bills since then, and now the new bill is ready still not showing the monthly credit. I visited the local store and they emailed the National Offline Support Team on 2/16 but this has not helped to resolve it. On Verizon's "check the status of your trade-in" webpage, entering my Submission ID confirms it was received. The credits are to be issued over 24 months. If my new device payment agreement is paid off, trade-in promotional credits will stop. The longer you delay starting the credits, the less you will have to pay out on the $650 since the new bill will make 5 out of 24 payments on the new phone. So far I've lost out on $135.04 of trade-in credits. Every month you delay I lose another $27.08. At this point by not meeting your end of the deal by starting the credits within 2-3 billing cycles as stated, it seems you are stealing from me. How can I get this resolved and start seeing my monthly credit?

This is reassuring, thank you. I did not know there was a lump sum planned for missed credits. Stephen

I’ve been dealing with missing and incorrect trade in promo credits since Jan 2021. For the past 14 months I’ve had repeated phone calls with various customer service agents who assured me the errors would be corrected. Just got my latest bill, and the same issue persists. This is beyond pitiful customer service. I have spent so many hours having to re-explain the situation and educate Verizon on all their errors. Still no resolution. I’m not sure if it’s utter incompetence or blatant deceit.
