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.

  5. Does this apply to Apple online store purchase as well?

  6. You can also threaten to return it if you are within fourteen days of having received it and they will refund you the difference. I had actually purchased mine 15 days ago but since I didnt receive it until a day later (ordered online) I was able to fall within the time frame.

    Woohoo!

  8. Om, I’m with you. It took a lot for me to shell out the $599, and that was little more than two months ago. I bought the iPhone knowing full well that the price would drop, as it did with the iPod.

    I just didn’t think it would happen so soon. It’s like Apple fleeced the early-adopters.

  9. What happens if it has been more than 14 days?

  10. Usually, your articles are awesome, but this sounds like the rantings of a spoiled 18 year old. This is the price of being an early adopter. Would I have liked to pay $300 instead of $600? No, not if it meant wating the intervening months. Crying like a girl demeans you. You are much better than this.
