    So, I went to the Apple Store today and tried to buy something with the $100 coupon that I got for being an early iPhone buyer. HOwever, the guy said the coupon code was no good. :(

    But, after talking for a while, they gave me a 100 gift card which I then used.

    Now, I am thinking, "Steve, that sh*t shouldn't happen."

    Anybody else have a problem with their coupon?

    Sounds like Apple stores are as judicious with handing out $100 gift cards as they were with issuing $200 rebates.

    I haven't spent mine yet (but will this week). I'm glad they gave you the $100 gift card :D

    Perhaps you should see if your original $100 rebate will work at the online store.

    You have to email Apple about codes that don't work. They sent out a few of them twice. I had to go back and get a new one. Haven't tried to spend it after I had to pay full price for Logic 8, but it should work. Wish I would have been able to get a $100 gift card, man.

    I just tried to preorder Leopard at the online store using my coupon and the checkout claimed it had a zero balance. I had to call CS who also said it had a zero balance, but when I persisted that it was unused they applied the $100 off to my order.

    Now it has a zero balance.

    Very glad they gave you the credit. But like I said before... ***** like that shouldn't happen.

    yeah i went ahead and used it because there was really nothing else i wanted at the apple store that $100 would really impact on. At least in my mind... $100 off Leopard though...thats nice :D

    No problems here. Also saves the gas of driving to Biltmore and having to wait until 6pm.

    Happened to a friend of mine, Apple called it a "bug" in the distribution. They let him sign on to apple.com and print out a new one right there in the store.

    Used two coupons towards the purchase of a Canon scanner. No problems.

    I had a problem redeeming mine at the Apple store.
    They just had me go back through the process on their store computer, and printed out a new one with a different code for me right there.

    How long do you have before you MUST use the coupon? Does it expire?

    It is never supposed to expire. However, I would use it in a decent amount of time just to get it over and done with.
