That'd be disappointing since it very specifically references refunding to my CC.That’s what I thought too, but I received a gift card.
Getting a refund back to your payment credit card is only available when you purchase it on apple online. And also if your refund amount is greater than your purchase amount, the remaining balance will be issued as a Apple Gift Card as well.Question for the people that got a credit back to their credit cards vs. getting a gift card. Did you already buy a new S4 watch? I wanted to trade in my S3 back to Apple and get a credit on my credit card and then buy my S4 at B&H, so I would not have to pay sales tax. When I went into the Apple Store the person helping me said I could pick but then when she had me enter all my info, it would only give her the option to give me a gift card. I am assuming it is because I had not bought an S4 yet.
It could be because I didn’t go on launch day which I’m sure was very busy. I went this past Thursday to return a GSS S4 and get the SS instead. I brought my S3 SS for the trade-in as well.Dang they wouldn’t let me do that on launch day. Oh well got a leather case for my max and still have $160 or so to play with.
That’s exactly what I did too. I already knew I was going to buy a new iPad and maybe Mac mini when they launch, so getting a gift card wasn’t a big deal to me since they money would go that way anyways.I opted for a gift card to put towards the new iPad when it comes out
