I finally got my issues resolved. I corresponded via email with Dish and got nowhere for months, but after posting here out of the blue my promotional debit card arrived in the mail.
I then followed up with a call to customer service. The rep was very helpful. The sign-up promo also included free Netflix for 1 year. Since I already had Netflix I was told by the original sales rep that I would receive a code about a month after signing up which would allow me to receive a credit against my Netflix bill.
During the time I went back & forth on email getting nowhere the Netflix promo expired, so Dish couldn't submit a credit to Netflix. However, the rep was able to give me a credit against my monthly Dish fee to equal the Netflix promo savings, making me whole.
Bottom line - don't bother emailing Dish service. Call the service line and it's a much better experience.
