Upgrade to Windows 8.1 promised and not delivered

When I ordered my brand new XPS 13, I made a mistake and chose the Home version of Windows and not Pro.  When I called the support group in charge of making order changes, they said that I'd have to cancel the order and re-order the computer, but then amended their statement by telling me that once I have the computer, I could upgrade the operating system for $50.  I went ahead and kept the order. Three weeks later, I got the computer, called Dell and was told that the cost to upgrade was $99.99. I have been through several chat sessions, phone calls and emails and no one at Dell will now honor the $50 upgrade charge.  I feel that I was misled and misinformed and that Dell should at least honor the discounted upgrade, especially since I spent over $2000 for the computer. Will someone at Dell at least acknowledge that they will do something to help?
