    How do we claim it if we just purchased an AIR? Return and rebuy?

    Call Apple. They will send you one by email if you are within the 14 day return period.

    Did they already send it to you or did they tell you that it would be 2-3 weeks? When I called this morning they agreed to e-mail the card; however, she said it would be 2-3 weeks and then she verified my email address.

    I was told the 2-3 week thing also, and verified my e-mail address.

    I ordered my MacBook Air on June 11th and it arrived a week later.

    Just called Apple, and they refunded me $100 of that purchase because somehow they were unable to provide me the gift card.

    Great customer service 

    Wow. Just like that. Good guy Apple never stops impressing me. They really go the extra mile to make us feel happy and fuzzy on the inside. :)

    Do you have some sort of physical proof (i.e. e-mail, confirmation number, etc) that you will be receiving the $100 gift card in 2-3 weeks? What if the 3 weeks pass and you don't get anything, and they have no idea what you're talking about and say that you bought the laptop like almost 2 months ago when the promotion wasn't even available! LOL

    When I got off the phone with Apple the same thought went through my head. I'm thinking of calling back tomorrow to discuss it further.

    I also didn't receive an e-mail, and I actually requested one or a confirmation number. The rep said there isn't one and they took notes in their system that other employees can refer to.

    I was told about an email, but I didn't receive it.

    Anyways, the rep did the job and as I said they refunded my $100. He even added 7% tax :D

    Of course I'm not buying any gift card.

    Wait, so if I bought my MBA (love it btw) on the 28th of June, I can still get the $100 card? Sweet! Calling Apple now.

    So you have an option to either take the $ off or the gift card ? Although i don't really care about the $100 cash back into my account...but will be good to know

    I don't think so.

    I called because I bought my MBA before this promotion, and I wanted the gift card. The rep told me that he was unable to generate a gift card for me, but had no problem taking the price of the gift card off my macbook payment and back to my credit card.

    Just called them. Getting it within 3 weeks, they said the order confirmation number is the same as the one for your laptop (if you ordered it online).

    I can confirm this. I was also told 3 weeks and received the code yesterday in an e-mail. In previous years they sent a physical card, so was surprised to see this but its fine either way.
