Not Honoring Contract Renewal and Misleading Reps

I tried renewing my contract a few weeks ago which caused a glitch in my account and corrupted my OnDemand as the contract I had (Prime TV, 25/25 Internet, and Showtime) was no longer offered. After being passed around for two weeks and spending 15+ hours on the phone/chat, the service rep finally said that I should just renew my service and they will give me $30 Valued Customer Credit for 12 months for my troubles and to offset the increase in cost because technically they couldn't honor what was offered to me.

So I renewed the contract online and got a confirmation email with my updated price. I checked online and my account seemed to be in good order with the $30 credit included (see email snapshot). Fast forward one week, I got my bill and it was $30 more than what the confirmation email quoted. I looked online and noticed that without any new confirmation or notification, Verizon removed the $30 credit even though it was included in the confirmation email. I talked to a rep who said they'd fix the problem but instead of fixing the contract, they gave me a one month $25 credit which is fine for this month but obviously will cause issues for the rest of the contract. Again, another instance where they put a bandaid on a problem, hope the customer won't mind, and don't actually fix the problem.

Aside from one rep (Kim), I've had nothing but terrible experiences with Verizon and have been lied to, put on endless holds, dropped off calls, and fail to follow-up even though I've been extremely patient and diligent on my end. The one advantage FIOS has is the service for the price is better than its competitors but with their awful customer service and misleading billing system, the small price saving might not even be worth it.

Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me who's this unlucky?
