HughesNet Not Honoring their own email.

I inquired about an upgrade to my HughesNet account and received the response, below on 9 November from Jackie Williams, HughesNet Support.  The response indicated that I could upgrade to Gen5 20gb for $59.99.   No where in the response below did HughesNet indicate that the $59.99 for 20 gb was for a limited time.   
Today, I called to upgrade to this plan:  Gen5 20gb for the price of $59.99.   Although, your representative was very nice, she quoted the price of $69.99.  I explained the email I had received, she put me on hold, and then quoted the price of $59.99 for 6 months.   Again, I told her that was not what the email said and even provided the Case ID:  116602229.  She again put me on hold and came back quoting the price of $59.99 for 1 year and then I could callback  after the year ended for the $59.99 price.   Again, I explained this was not acceptable and the reasons why it was not… including no where in the email did it hint that the price of $59.99 was for a “limited” or “temporary” price. 
I believe Hughesnet needs to honor the price as indicated below without any hitches or call backs.

Ummm... From the email:


  • Gen5 20gb - $59.99
  • For the Equipment lease of  $9.99.

So that's a total of $69.98, not including tax.
