    Nothing. That's exactly what I did.

    But it's not like you're beating the system somehow. You paid for your bumper so you got your money back. Now you can get a free case.

    someone posted about paying cash and no receipt. went in and walked out with a gift card for $31. I might just do that, get a screen protector or another case?

    I couldn't agree more. These people are completely abusing the system. Two, and the other guy attempting for a third? Wow.

    You are beating the system. You bought a bumper, got a refund and kept the bumper, and now you're placing an order for another free bumper?

    And you wonder why we used to have Remote Controls in older generations of Macs and Upright Docks in the first generation iPhone, but no longer. They've already taken away the cleaning cloth and the SIM ejector tool, what's next?

    Not really sure what's going on here. I bought a bumper a couple of weeks ago with a credit card. I wasn't too concerned with the refund, so I never checked it out. Then today I saw the iPhone app to choose a case, so I picked one and got an order confirmation.

    Then I saw the iphonebumper.apple.com link to check your refund status. The site said I had a refund issued yesterday, which according to my bank balance has not shown up.

    I assume that by ordering the free case, my refund would be nullified, but Apple's site doesn't seem to indicate that.

    Certainly I won't be getting a case in a month AND a bumper refund..?

    Oddness.

    *EDIT* I see others are reporting the same thing. What I hope doesn't happen is that they cancel my case order. Much rather have that than the refund.

    Us early bumper purchasers feel so "special" now.

    Money back and a free double dip.

    If there is a loophole, why not right? It is not like we are the Octomom mooching thousands off the government. :p

    Is it morally wrong? Yeah. But Steve Jobs and his company aren't saints either. Steve Jobs isn't about ethics. They buy out companies, patent every single thing, and pretend they invented it. Bottom line at the end of the day is money. Some of you Apple fanboys just mentioned $175M is chump change to Apple.

    I checked my account today and have received the full refund for the bumper case, then I went onto the iPhone 4 case program and asked for a clear case... It worked. Thanks Apple. Two cases for free!

    I have a question, lets say that I buy an iPhone 4 today and I decide to buy a blue bumper for it. Can I still get a refund then, lets say... if I apply for it in a week or so?

    You Can't "buy" bumper anymore, they were pulled out of the stores and they are priced a $0 and out of stock online.

    If you get an iPhone today, or anytime from now and Sep 30, all you do is install the app and claim your case.

    one case per your phone's serial number...I can imagine if they've given you a refund already based on your iTunes account they just won't ship the one you requested through the APP which is also linked to your itunes acccount..."what you do in the dark eventually come to light"

    you don't have to have an itunes account to buy a bumper... are you high?

    If you purchased a bumper cash, and don't have your receipt, they are giving you a gift card for the store... they have no way to know if you have one or not already.

    It's being reported all over that when you do this they aren't asking for any type of ID or anything... I'm sure that will change over the next few days, hell even few hours... but not yet.

    but that's the thing, if you paid for the bumper in cash, or didn't have the receipt emailed, they can't exactly put 2 and 2 together, hence free bumper PLUS free case. Think of it as an incentive for Apple to make sure they get their act together for iPhone 5.

    You're actually pretty much entitled to both a refund and a free case.

    If you read the terms of both the free case, and the refund - neither say they're exclusive, or that you can't order a free case if you've got a bumper refund - In fact, they're essentially two completely different promotions.

    Can't see apple would cancel any orders here.
