    Greetings braintrust,

    So apple offered me a free gift due to all the issues i was having with my iphone 7. The woman said i can pick anything at all up to $100. The only "catch" is that i have to pick something by tomorrow, and i don't really "need" anything. Do you guys have any advice on what to choose? I need to send in my top 3 and they will send me what they can out of those. It must be $100 or less on the Australian site.

    Ive been playing around on the site and have chosen a preliminary 3 things. Of course i'm open to other suggestions.

    1. mophie powerstation plus Universal Battery or
    mophie powerstation 6200 (not sure the diff between the 2, is it just one has an integrated charger?)

    2. Ultimate Ears UE ROLL 2 Wireless Speaker
    3.RHA S500i Ultra-Compact Noise-Isolating In-Ear Headphones

    Thanks.

    You can never go wrong with an external battery pack.

    Get something worth as close to $100 as possible. Then go to an Apple Store, tell them you changed your mind, and return it for a gift card. That way you can save that and use it towards whatever you want/need in the future.

    Something that holds its value like Apple Pencil and sell it

    Gift cards are one of the exclusions and you cannot pick them. Has to be a physical item.

    if you can't put $100 towards airpods get some other bluetooth headphones that are $100, or get the biggest battery pack, or a battery pack and a case.

    or for your mac get an external hdd if you don't have one.

    Don't really want the airpods, and I'm not sure i can get a gift card. What other headphones are $100 other than the ones i picked?

    The UE Roll is not shabby, to be honest. And you might have more uses for portable speaker than you may think, once you have it.

    Then get an item and exchange it or throw it on eBay. If it's free then you profit regardless and can put that $ towards BeatsX in February or AirPods on Monday.

    So they never got back to me. Should I call or email or let it go?

    You should do a polite follow up call or email.
