Apple Inc. has begun allowing people who bought iPhones before the higher-end models price was abruptly slashed to apply for a $100 store credit. The company said the credit would be available for people who bought either the $599 8-gigabyte, iPhone or the $499, 4-gigabyte model before Aug. 22. People who bought the phones more recently are eligible for refunds. Those early buyers must fill out a form on Apples Web site to have the retail or online store credit delivered to them electronically. The credit can be redeemed only inside the United States, and cannot be used inside the iTunes store or for Apple store gift cards, according to terms listed on the companys Web site.
iPhone customers will first be required to go to Apples website and enter in their iPhone serial number and phone number. After that time, an SMS text message will be sent to the phone with an access code to redeem the $100 credit. The access code can then be used in combination with your phone number to generate an electronic store credit of $100 to use towards any Apple Store purchase. Customers must request the credit before November 30, 2007 or forfeit their rights to the $100. Its good to see Apple keep their promises at least
