Ok so this order may get canceled by some Apple coupon nazi in the cloud, but it looks like I may have gotten a good deal on an iPad. I bought the original iPhone for the full $600 retail when it was released. I broke the screen on the first device and I bought another one for $400, giving the first one to my sister. When I heard about the $100 gift card I told my sis but never followed up on it to make sure she got it. She never did. Fast forward about 3 years to yesterday - I called Apple customer service with the serial number from that G1 phone. They said they could not still give the rebate because that system didn't exist any more. The lady said that she would give me a coupon for $100 off a $300 purchase - I said "great, I just wanted this so I could buy an iPad". She said she hated to disappoint me but that coupons were not valid on the iPad. So now I'm bummed, browsing the Apple site trying to figure out what I can get with this that I halfway need. Just for grins I put a 16GB wi-fi in my cart and I go to the "enter promo code" link and put in my coupon - it worked. Now I'm SUPER excited - I try adding the $25 Apple gift card I have as part of the payment. It works. Rock on - now it's listed as "not yet shipped" and I'm just hoping that something doesn't come along to validate the order and bounce it back. Of course at this point I'll just call Apple and get them to honor what I was promised . Anyway, long story short - try coupons on iPads even though it says they won't work. I'll update this thread with the outcome just in case anyone else cares.
