    I've found a loophole that allows someone to get a free Apple Watch directly from Apple. I have emailed Tim Cook's email address, but haven't gotten a response yet. Is there another channel I can go through? Before anyone asks, I will not publicly discuss the specifics of the loophole. But I can assure you, it works, and I have another Apple Watch in hand that didn't cost me anything.

    Tim Cook hates this one weird trick for getting a free Apple Watch. Click here to be pummeled with spam.

    Not a joke or a scam. I've been on MacRumors for about 8 years, and I'm a huge Apple fan. I'm also a shareholder, so I want to make sure this hole gets plugged up ASAP.

    Then why did you order two(2) Apple Watches without paying for them?

    Does the loophole involve a Nigerian prince and giving up your bank account info?

    Publicize this loophole, a million people will try to get their free Apple watch, and the hole will be closed in a blink of an eye.

    I just got off the phone with Tim Cook and he says that he hasn't received your email yet. Could you try sending it again?

    I ordered and fully paid for 1 watch. After getting it, I noticed the possibility to get another at no charge. I wasn't sure if it would actually work, so I gave it a shot. It worked, and now that I have proof of concept, I want Apple to be aware of the issue. I will also be returning the second watch.

    I seem to remember a number of people claiming they had received their watch without their card being charged. I wondered if they would call their bank and say they had lost the card...

    You should try for a third. Scientific Theory and all that.

    Also, you need to share your experiences somewhere other than Apple, so others can peer review your process.

    It's in the name of science.

    Not paying your credit card bill will do the trick.
