Waited on line at the SoHo store for 40 mins.....had a 64GB 3G in my hand, and was told I couldn't purchase it because I wanted to use an Amex gift card that was given to me specifically to buy an iPad. Apple will not take a gift card to purchase an iPad at all. Now I have a useless $1000 amex gift card! Anybody know if I can at least buy it from apple's online store with a gift card? This is a ridiculous policy. I'm getting American Express and the FTC involved. One way or another Apple will have to accept it as payment. According to Amex, Apple is violating it's terms of service with Amex if they are picking and choosing which product can be purchased with their card. Anybody else have a similar experience?
