Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular - Discount offers Not applied to bill
I recently purchased an Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular directly from Apple and then connected it to my AT&T account. When I set it up online I was told they were offering a promotion for new Apple Watch customers that the one-time activation fee of $25 would be waived and the first 3 months of service ($10/month) would also be waived --- for at total of $55 savings.
I've received my first month's bill since adding this and the $25 activation fee and the first month's service of $10 is on my bill.
Has anyone else had this problem? Do they credit it later?
Here's the fine print:
