Recent iPad Customers to Get $100/£100 Refund
Electricpig.co.uk reports today that anyone who only just bought an iPad and is a bit peeved that Apple has just a) released a brand new iPad 2 for the same price, and b) reduced the price of the old iPads by $100/£100 will be able to get the difference refunded by Apple, but only if you’re still within the 14-day returns period, and provided you have your original receipt, of course. According to Electricpig.co.uk, Apple’s sales team has promised them that the $100/£100 difference will be refunded without any quibble, provided you fulfil all the above criteria.
As Electricpig.co.uk notes, although some people will probably still complain about this and say that the 14-day period of grace should be extended, the question is, how long should, or could, Apple extend the cut-off period for refunds before it gets ridiculous? Many other companies would just say “tough luck”, and Apple doesn’t really have any legal obligation to refund the money I wouldn’t have thought, it’s just good customer relations really.

Qualify for the Rebate but Verizon not playing
Well, I just bought my first I-phone and switched from Blackberry (Verizon customer) after many years. It really is the best - loved it so much that on Feb 18th I bought an Ipad. Damn if they didn't drop in price within 2 weeks of my purchase!
Oh wait - that's okay because Apple is going to give me a $100 rebate because of my timing....WRONG....not if you bought it at Verizon! They are not playing and don't know anything about a $100 rebate. :mad:
