You think Apple will give anyone the same credit for those that purchased Imacs recently?

I doubt it too, and if it were me, I wouldn't pursue it. (doesn't seem like the right thing to do in my opinion)

No. Black Friday is a one day per year sale. Apple's Sales and Refund Policy only covers against normal (permanent) price reduction or the introduction of a replacement/updated model.

Prices

The Apple Store endeavors to offer you competitive prices on current Apple products, selected Sale and Apple Certified Reconditioned products, and third-party products. Your total order price will include the price of the product on the day of shipping plus any applicable sales tax and shipping charges. Apple reserves the right to change prices for products displayed at the Apple Store at any time and particularly to correct pricing errors that appear on the Store.

Should Apple reduce its price on any shipped product within 14 calendar days of shipment, you may contact Apple Store Customer Service at 1-800-676-2775 to request a refund or credit of the difference between the price you were charged and the current selling price. To receive the refund or credit you must contact Apple within 14 calendar days of the price change.

I want a credit for a car I bought 9 months ago that is now $1500 less than it was when I bought it.

This is the from the terms of online purchases for the Canadian store, I thnk the U.S. has similar terms.

Should Apple reduce its price on any shipped product within 10 days of shipment, you may contact Apple Sales Support at 1-800-MY-APPLE to request a credit of the difference between the price you were charged and the current selling price. To receive the credit you must notify Apple within 14 days of shipment. In the event a credit is given to you, the same credit card that you used to make your purchase will be credited.

As my i7 only shipped a few days ago I called yesterday and they gladly gave me a $101 credit. Of course I spent that and a lot more in the Apple store to celebrate. :p

Yes but the assumption is that the OP did not buy within 10 days.

I called them yesterday and received the $101 back, I said simply to Kathy I had only received my replacement "Ups lost the first one" 7 days ago and she not a problem.

I also went back into the Apple Store online and found something else :p

And the theme here is "within 10 days". Folks, you're not getting anything that you're not entitled to. As I've said, the OP's question reads as though his "recent" purchase was more than 10 days ago.
