[Megathread] Get A Refund/Credit From Apple For iPhone Price Drop
Apparently many people over here (and elsewhere) are pissed at the price drop of the
iPhone. As of today, the 8 GB iPhone is 399$ instead of 599$. A whopping 200$ drop.
The 4 GB iPhone is no more, that is now only 8GB will be available.
I have just got my iPhone 6 days ago and paid for it the 599$ retail price. I am in
Germany and a friend of mine was visiting Washington DC last week, so I asked him to
get me an 8 GB one. Having your just-bought shiny gadget drop more than 30% in price
is pretty harsh, and does indeed make anyone feel backstabbed.
It looks like, as well, that some people have had success already in getting
in-store credit or some kind of compensation from Apple for the price drop. Apple
mentions on its website what is called "a price protection policy":
"Should Apple reduce its price on any shipped product within 10 calendar days of
shipment, you may contact Apple Sales Support at 1-800-676-2775 to request a
refund or credit of the difference between the price you were charged and the current
selling price. To receive the refund or credit you must contact Apple within 14 business
days of shipment."
Many threads have been created about this topic already, but hopefully this thread will
contain helpful information to anyone seeking to get refund or credit from apple
regarding the iPhone price drop. Unfortunately, many of the guys over here on the forums
are from outside the US and getting a refund/credit might be difficult.
So if you have any information on how to contact Apple regarding this issue, please
post it here. Also mentioning how did you buy your phone, and where are your located
will be very helpful.
Please try to keep it civil and stay on topic.
No need for this-is-what-happens-when-you-are-an-early-adopter posts either.
