Did you just buy an 8GB iPhone and paid full price? And are you feeling upset over the $200 dollar price drop that Apple (AAPL) just announced? Well there is a way you can help yourself and get $200 back. Apple’s store return policy states:
Should Apple reduce its price on any Apple-branded product within fourteen (14) calendar days of the date of purchase, you may request a refund of the difference between the price paid and the current selling price. An original purchase receipt is required, and you must request your refund within fourteen (14) calendar days of the price reduction.
Just to clarify, if you bought the phone from Apple store, then you can get the refund from Apple. Otherwise visit the AT&T Store to request a refund.
Om presents this as a straight bit of good news reporting – if you bought an iPhone full-price, you may be able to get $200 back. Sweet! But looking through the comments to his post, there are lots of folk saying how Apple have done good, or done bad, they will reap the whirlwind, or they will be feted as Gods… and some people actually accuse Om as being a pro- or anti-Apple poster!
