iPhone owners to get $100 credit

Standard

Fact: Early adopters always pay too much for new technology. Yesterday’s announcement that the iPhone would be receiving a $200 price drop created a pretty strong backlash. Enough so that an Open Letter to iPhone Owners from Steve Jobs was posted to the Apple website today. Long story short, if you bought an iPhone anytime in the past two months, you’re entitled to a $100 Apple Store or Apple Online Store credit for use towards any Apple products. Sure, it’s not the $200 extra you paid on the iPhone, but heck… it’s a down payment on one of the new iPod nano’s you’ve been drooling over since yesterday.

  1. Good move on Apple’s part. I think this is exactly the kind of treatment that iPhone owners wanted.

  2. Honestly, I was an early adopter and I accepted the higher price because of that. It’s like buying a hot new model of a car and you end up paying $2-$3k more to get it before anyone else. It’s not like the automaker is going to give you your money back.

    I didn’t expect it, and I thought the $200 discount announcement yesterday was awesome news–but at no point was I bitter about it.

    Will I take advantage of the $100 rebate? Oh hell yes! :)
