    Suppose I go ahead and purchase a rMBP 13", with the education discount and the $100 apple gift card promotion, and after two weeks, I decide that I don't like the machine and return it. Am I obligated to return the $100 gift card as well?

    Now, of course, I don't intend to stoop that low just to receive a free gift card at Apple's expense, but I was curious. I am sure Apple has thought about that scenario. I am assuming Apple activates the gift card after your two week return period is over. Otherwise, it will end up being a nightmarish scenario. :rolleyes:

    I think they refund you a hundred dollars less and you get to keep the gift card. So if you paid 1100 plus received a 100 gift card they would refund you 1000 dollars and you would keep the gift card. I could be wrong about this but I heard from someone that it worked like this.

    Laco is right. It's all in the fine print:

    Yeah, amazingly they probably don't appreciate people like you trying to rip them off.

    No...no...no...

    You got it all wrong. It's just a "Hypothetical Scenario". If it's just a "Hypothetical Scenario" no one would ever think of actually trying the scam.

    Please...it's just a "Hypothetical Scenario"!:rolleyes:

    Sorry, I don't believe in hypothetical situations, it's like lying to your brain.
