    Is there a benefit to buying directly from Apple?

    I can get it at Target with RedCard for 5% off...

    I'm sure there are other things like that also (Best Buy reward points)...what's the benefit of Apple, if any?

    Apple is insanely relaxed about returns. I went in to return an opened first generation Apple Watch a week after the two week return period had ended and the employee said "no problem, do you have the card you used?" before I even had time to explain why I wanted to return it late. Customer service is the main reason I buy directly from Apple.

    I didn't even think about the red card option. That could save a huge chunk of change. I think I'll preorder with the intent of returning if I can easily sang one at target.

    I might do the same...just need to decide which one to order?!?! Sport? Nike? Space Gray or Silver?

    Well the bike doesn't come out until October. Will we have an option to order even?

    I think you may be able to pre order the Nike, but will take a few extra weeks. Not sure if it's worth it or not. I like the look of the strap though.

    I always order from Apple. Great customer service and easy return policy if there is a problem.
