    So, they reimbursed me $100 and $5 tax.

    Thank you, Amex! :)

    Wow... sometimes things are better left unsaid really... I know it's just the internet, but why make yourself look so selfish.

    Karma karma karma, you'll always get what's coming to you. ;)

    probably because they don't regard being selfish as a character flaw or something negative to be hidden.

    But hey, they STUCK IT TO THE MAN!

    I bought an iPhone, and, uh, I took it out of the box, and I, uh, took the empty box back to the Apple store, and I uh, got a refund, and I uh still had the IPHONE AT HOME! And then I got an Apple iRebate AND 200 from AMEX, too!

    I REALLY STUCK IT TO THE MAN!

















    No, I did not.... and I hate to be giving this idea to some of the members of this board with little to no conscience.

    I would guess they figure the $100 from Apple should be included in the equation. I am not sure why some people are saying this is shady. It is a feature of the AMEX card, not some sort of scam.

    They only gave me $100 since I got $100 from Apple.

    I don't think they are saying that I scammed anybody. They are saying those who got more than $200 back did. But, what do I know. :)

    getting $100 from Amex seems ok since they are just covering what Apple didn't cover, so its perfecly legal :)

    Now, for those of you who are proud of pulling a scam and stealing... maybe you should go post at the pirate thread, har har!

    Remember to buy steal an eyepatch and wooden leg on your way out.
