That's because you ordered them before Jobs announced the free cases. Apple withdrew the sales of bumpers from the online store on the day of the announcement.I got bumpers in the colours I wanted very quickly from Apple Online.
I think it was 2 weeks delivery on the coloured bumpers prior to the free bumper offer so I'd say they hadn't got any stock anyway.I have a white bumper, with my free black one set to arrive tomorrow. I wonder what they did/ are doing with the pre-exsisting stock of colored bumpers? I feel like they could leave those in the stores and online for people to actually purchase. Give them options.
Exactly. At the end of September, the colored bumpers will be back in store and people wanting a different color than everyone else will definitely pay 30$.By giving away only black ones, they are creating a demand for colored ones, so they can sell them and gain some money back.
