Apple has posted details
on the $100 credit the company is offering to early iPhone buyers who were irked at the device’s recent $200 price drop. Customers can visit the company’s website and fill out a form to electronically receive the credit for either the company's retail or online stores.
Customers who submit a rebate claim by November 30 can buy "just about anything sold by Apple," provided that they have activated the phone with AT&T. However, that $100 can't be used to buy Apple gift cards or anything from Apple’s iTunes store – which is where most users were hoping to spend their money.
People who purchased their iPhone between June 29 and August 21 are eligible for the rebate. Anything purchased after that gets a full $200 refund under a price protection deal.
