So, I'm posting this in case anyone else happens themselves upon this issue.
I called support again and was able to get the issue resolved. Evidently this had to do with a bootlog file that was not entered properly on the Xfinity side. I have my own modem at home. The tech reloaded it and things started working as normal.
Not sure why it decided to go away in the first place, but that's an afterthought now.

Yesterday my phone asked me to sign in to the "xfinitywifi" hotspot. Normally I would punch in my email/password and then be on my way. However, yesterday I was redirected to a different page that was asserting I need to buy a pass to continue using Wifi OnDemand.
Following that, I tried getting on via the Hotspots app (Comcast's app, on Play Store). I punch in my credentials and the app tells me it cannot authenticate and I don't have access with my tier of service. My specific error code is 0106. I tapped on the link for more details and I was redirected to an Xfinity page that reiterated the same thing. (Screenshots attached.)
I called support and after talking with three different people, who all agree I did actually have access to xfinitywifi hotspots, the third person told me to select the "Complimentary Pass" (the one-hour version). I question if this with result in perstitent access, which they claimed it would, but the access was cut after an hour.
So, I'm hoping a Comcast agent with the relevant expertise can troubleshoot my account and fix the issue. I have the Blast internet service, so I don't think it is truly an issue with lack of access. If anyone else has dealt with this and knows of a fix I'd like to hear it!
