    Apple today launched a new promotion for U.S. customers, providing free next day shipping on all of its iPhone models. While Apple typically provides free shipping for all orders over $50, the promotion also includes the iPhone 4, which is free with a two year contract.

    The shipping promotion comes shortly after Apple released a new "Why You'll Love an iPhone" advertising campaign via email and the web and a secondary email advertisement that highlighted Apple's 9th consecutive J.D. Power Smartphone Satisfaction Rankings win. Apple's advertising push follows the introduction of Samsung's Galaxy S 4 phone.

    Potential customers are limited to purchasing two iPhones with the newly released shipping offer, which is available immediately. Though no specific holiday is associated with the promotion, it does come a week before the Easter holiday.

    It boggles the mind that someone thought this merited a FPP. Seriously. This will result in what... like five more iPhone sales in the next fiscal year?

    Wow. You know, I had really been on the fence about the iPhone 4 for the past two and a half years. What really turned me off was the $10 shipping. And it's not like I'm going to drive to the closest phone store or Apple store. Time is money, people! But, now that the shipping is free, I am ready to commit to a $2,500 data plan over the next two years on a 30-month-old phone. Thanks, Apple!

    A free shipping offer is hardly revolutionary.

    Fast shipping promo 5 days before the end of the quarter? That sounds a bit like bad news.

    This entire site has been in a crap mood for way too long. It's painful to read these threads anymore.

    What does everyone hate about "free"?

    Jeez people. Look at their product lineup. It's the nicest, most well-made and well-known of any company out there.
