I am an active duty military member who recently moved and started services with Verizon Fios to bundle with my wireless plan. I called the technician on 26 September in the interest of starting service, and was told over a VERY long phone call that I was eligible for the "new 2 year plan" incentive of a tablet, or a $200 visa prepaid card. While it did seem that this agent was new (she was confused on a couple things, and regularly put me on hold, hence the nearly 2-hour phone conversation), but I asked SEVERAL times over to ensure that it was, in fact, a gift card that I was opting for, as I am not interested in signing up for additional devices or services. She even verified that I would not receive the gift card until 3 months had passed, and I am familiar with that stipulation having had Fios in the past, and having received a gift card then...
I finished out that phone call with repeated affirmation about the gift card. Having faith in the technician, I never cared to check the follow-up email of my Fios Bundle and promos. However, upon calling today to double-check the status, I was informed that my account does not show ANY record of that gift card.
I spoke with three technicians: Anthony, from Billing Dept. Jason, from Promo Dept. Annadora, from Promo Dept.
NONE of them offered me any recourse, and so I stated that I would file a formal complaint. I do not feel it is right to dupe customers into signing up for a plan with the allure of false promises. They told me the technician either messed up in repeatedly offering the gift card, or that I was mistaken.
I do not feel I am being treated with respect or understanding in this matter. If it is not resolved within a couple days, I will see to it that local military members are advised to steer clear of Fios, and file a report to the BBB.

I am beyond frustrated with the shady business practices of Verizon. If indeed the phone calls are "recorded," then it should be obvious that I was promised a gift card several times over for signing on a 2-year contract. However, I have had agents over the phone and through this forum tell me that I am wrong, that somehow, my monthly discounts more than make up for the false promises I received when agreeing to this contract. I am very dissatisfied, and I feel very slighted, as I have made it clear time and time again that I am active duty military and have certainly been a loyal customer on my end when my duty station allows for it. Instead of being treated with respect as an inquiring customer, I have basically been accused of either mishearing or lying.
I want what I was promised. I do not think that is too much to ask, considering that gimmick was what enticed me to sign up for cable again.
