    So I purchased an iPhone XS and am looking to return it and keep my original X for another year at least. Now when I go to return it, is there any way to get the balance credited back to an Apple store gift card instead of original payment on the credit card I used? I’d like to allocate this money so I have it to spend when the next years model comes out. This way I don’t need to worry about budgeting again and can use the original amount I saved for this years upgrade.

    Thank you in advance!

    even if they dont give you that option, couldn't you just get the refund on your card and then immediately purchase a gift card?

    Be clear what you want to do before starting the transaction.

    Not if it wasn’t his card. Opens up interesting ways to steal if stores allow this without seeing the original card.

    It was my card. I purchased the phone originally.
