    I got a free ipod touch with the back to school promotion. Can I return it for store credit within 14 days? how do they handle this?

    I'd be willing to bet you can't. IIRC, when I purchased my iMac, they scanned in the Touch, so it would be on file as being one of the promotional iPods.

    It wasnt free, you buy it and then do the rebate to get your money back. If you return it then you wont be able to get the rebate, meaning you are right back to where you started but with no ipod.

    If you want to make money from it then get the rebate and sell the ipod on ebay.

    I sent in the rebate the day I bought the iPod and the check came in the mail exactly a week later.

    They wouldn't be able to cancel the rebate check if it is sent so fast..

    Hahaha... It's pretty funny to think about, but I strongly discourage being a jerk of a customer :p.

    As others said, just sell it on eBay and wait for your rebate check also.

    I sold mine on craigslist for near the retail price. If you return it they will probably bill you or charge your credit card the rebate amount. Not worth it, and illegal.

    Also, if you read the terms and conditions, it says you forfeit the rebate if you return the iPod.
