    Completely forgot about the $100 iPhone credit I got 2 years ago until I went to order my 3G . Turned on the PowerBook I haven't used since I got my iPhone. Sure enough, there in my web receipts folder, $100 from Apple! Thanks Apple!

    Nope...worked fine. As they said, limited time to get the credit voucher, but they never expire.

    From when they dropped the pricing on the iPhone?

    There's no way that worked unless you got a gift card.

    that is what they gave. A virtual card with number and pin. And yes, as I said, and as they promised, it worked fine.

    i think what apple gave you was essentially a gift card. it even had the pin number with it.

    Let's see a screenshot of your receipt for this purchase then. There is no way we're talking about the same thing, because the credit that was issued for first gen iPhone owners expired like 18 months ago.

    No. That was your last chance to get the card. Not use it.

    Don't you love when people deny things even when they know it worked?

    Now see, you used the word "card." That's different.

    The original deal was something you went online for, and then printed out a receipt that had a unique code for. Not a gift card, which never expires.

    I think we're talking two different things. Were you an original iPhone owner that paid full price? ($499/$599)?

    Yes, I paid $599, and yes, that is how they gave the credit. You went online, registered, and it gave you a $100 virtual gift card that I printed as a PDF.

    No, I'm just trying to understand how you used a redemption code that expired 18 months ago. Until you post your receipt I call BS.

    If I'm wrong, I shall humbly apologize. ;)

    You're wrong. Tons of people used theirs to buy an iPhone 3G. How could they have done that with a code that expired 6 months before according to you?

    You had until some time in November 2007 to get the card, but it can be used forever.

    Lol nice. But idk why everyone is saying "luckyyyyyyyyyy"? You had to pay extra when the first iPhone came out. Okay. You pay me 400 now and in like two years ill give you 100 back and then YOU can be luckyyyyyyy

    I worked at the Apple Store up until a month ago and people were still bringing in those $100 print outs. They simply would not redeem in our system, which is why I have no idea how this poster (and many others it seems) manage to get them to work.

    Of you working in an Apple store and not being able to redeem the credit. I know for a fact that you never tried to redeem a credit that didn't work. They always worked.
