    I have an appointment tomorrow to take my mbpr to the genius bar. It is still under warranty. They are probably going to replace the screen. Has anyone had there mbpr replaced for the same issues as mine and received any freebees? The last time apple gave me the run around on repairing my ipad mini, they gave me a $250 credit to buy something from there online store ( I got a tb buffalo tb external drive, love it). Im just curious if any of you guys that have had this screen issue were offered any type of extras for the inconvenience?

    They're repairing it under warranty. They wont give you "freebies". If you want something, buy it like everybody else.

    As stated, they gave me a $250 credit to buy something from the apple store, for having my faulty ipad mini replaced under warranty.

    And having it replaced wasn't enough?

    I've NEVER heard of Apple stores even doing this except here in the forum. Every time I go to the Genuis Bar, I'm usually just hoping they agree with me that there's a problem and will do something about it.

    I received a 2010 MBP after my 2008 went in for god knows how many repairs, but that's standard practise if it's for the same fault over and over.

    Absolutely, but if they are going to offer me something I ain't gonna turn nothing down but my collar. The reason I created this thread was to see other people' experiences, nothing more, simple as that.
