Any luck on getting your refund?

Pure curiosity... I did not do that, just wondering how apple's handling it.

I did this on Sunday and they gave me a giftcard for $31 and some change (price + tax). They didn't take any of my information.

Interesting, sounds like you can take it back and get another $31. :)

I have 2 that Apple has refunded the money for. After I order my free case, I'm going to the store to get $62. :eek:

Interesting... makes sense though.

Guess it's almost as good as cash haha... I'd have it spent before i left the store.

I'd think they'd verify with your iTunes account? Or at least that would be the smart way if you did recieve a refund. If not, anyone with a bumper can walk into the store saying they don't have their receipt. Sounds cool, I'd buy a case, screen protector or money for a shuffle.

You don't need an iTunes account to buy a bumper

It's hard to believe anybody leaves a store without a receipt, or in Apple's case, without having your receipt emailed to you.

my fault, I was meaning about those ordering their free one now. then again it won't ship for a couple of weeks. So I guess anyone can walk in right now with no receipt and show them you have a bumper and want refund?

Apple sent an email saying they are refunding the money for the bumper I bought. It's automatic I didn't have to do anything.
You're a day late to the party. The next step is to order a free case and then take your bumper to the Apple store, claim you paid cash and have no receipt and get a $31 gift card. :D

I take a screenshot of all email receipts I receive, and save them to a Receipts folder. I also scan all receipts for electronics and accessories, and save the image to the same folder.

Saves you lots of nonsense down the road, and takes two seconds of your time.

well aren't you the organized one. Bad thing about that, I would of lost it all last weekend when my hard drive fried in my Mac mini. I was never aware of them emailing you receipt from the get go, so I would of never asked for them to do so.
