Black Friday Price Matched

Apple price matched Black Friday deals over the phone for orders within 14 days. They made an exception for the iPad ordered on 10/26 received 11/20.

iPad 5 is on the way!

I was first in line at my local Apple Store this morning (or should I say, at the head of the crush because apparently people in Toronto don't know how to form a line) and I struck out in my search for iPad Mini 16gb...
... Anyway my point is that I noticed that the Apple Store was price-matching on the iPad '4' with Best Buy's discount for Black Friday, a customer beside me was getting one and the Apple employee was using the Best Buy website for reference.

They price matched my order received 11-2-2012. Made an exception cause I was out of the 14 day return window.

Ok, so how is everyone making this happen? I placed an order thru the Apple store for pickup at my nearest store on 11/5 for a 16gb ipad. Picked it up that day and while I was there bought an ipad smart case. Called Apple three times today and they REFUSE to do a price match.

Did you sound cute or really nice? If not call back and try sounding cute or really nice.

Seriously though, I think its at the reps discretion.

You're out of your 14 day return window. Thats why

I don't believe that is the reason. Apple holiday return policy states that any item purchased between 10/27 and 12/25 can be returned until 1/7/2013?

Tell them you'll just return it and buy another one if they won't price match. You can return it by 1/7.

When companies dont use common sense - it really annoys me. Return it and buy another one - that will cost them more.

Ok, so I just called my closest Apple store. They will do the price match, but in store only. I would get $56 back, but the store is 50 miles away, Not sure if its worth the trip and fighting the crowds.

There were no discounts for minis. I would change the thread's tag if I could.

Just call and talk to customer service. I did it and got a refund to my credit card. Ask to speak to customer relations department.

I called this morning and spoke to customer service. I was told they couldn't credit me over the phone since I exchanged my online order (mini) for a Ipad 4 LTE in the store. They did however give me accessories...(Red Leather Smart, Lighting cable and a Blue Smart Cover). Actually it worked out better this way! Items to be shipped on on 05 Dec 12.
