    Unhappy No cash accepted when buying iPhone in Apple Stores

    Starting today (Saturday, October 20th) all Apple stores will no longer accept cash as a valid payment method when selling iPhones.

    Now you can ONLY pay by credit or debit card and no more than 2 phones per customer are allowed. All purchases will be tracked by credit card and when a certain limit has reached (maybe already at two phones?) no more phones can be bought with that same credit card. Looks like Apple is tightening the ropes to avoid export from iPhones from US.

    Question: Are US stores really free NOT to accept cash if they want? This sucks!!

    Answer: Yes, they are "free NOT to accept cash if they want".

    I predict an emerging (black) market for iphones --- take good care of the iphones you got, their value can only go up now. ;-)

    Using an Apple Gift Card

    Where can I redeem my Apple Gift Card?
    You can redeem an Apple Gift Card in retail Apple Stores, from the online Apple Store, or by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE. Apple Gift Cards can be used only in the United States.

    What products can I purchase using an Apple Gift Card?
    You can purchase just about anything sold by Apple (except another Apple Gift Card, an iTunes Gift Certificate or purchases at the iTunes Music Store), including products from both Apple and third-party makers.

    How do I use the Apple Gift Card to purchase products?
    In retail stores, simply present the card to the cashier at time of payment. For online or purchases through 1-800-MY-APPLE, enter or provide the 16-digit card number and 8-digit PIN (to be scratched off). Please keep the card in your possession until the order has been processed and delivered.

    Let's see if anyone can confirm that gift cards are still accepted to pay for an iPhone. The guy in the store in Aventura Mall (Miami) told me ONLY credit or debit cards were accepted.

    I wonder if they would accept credit cards such as those prepaid ones you can get, and Paypal credit cards. Think of how many you could get that way? A well determined person can just get a bunch of prepaid credit cards.

    If you purchase an Apple gift card with a credit card already on file with Apple is it possible that the two will become linked?
