Apple has finally revealed the details of how early iPhone purchasers can claim their $100 Apple Store credit. If you purchased your iPhone from Apple or AT&T prior to August 22nd, you just fill out an online form, go through a couple of simple validation steps, and you’ll have your credit in minutes. The only caveat is that you MUST have activated the phone through iTunes and AT&T.
Just head on over to the Apple iPhone Store Credit Form and fill in your serial number and phone number. Then you’ll receive an SMS message with a validation code. Once you have that, you’ll enter that number and you’ll receive a printable certificate immediately for $100 off at the Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. I do find it odd that you can’t use the credit in the iTunes store though. Go figure.
I just did it and it took me less than a minute, start to finish. Now what to buy?
