Apple Offers $100 Refund To Recent iPad 1 Purchasers

Have you recently bought a first generation iPad? Are you feeling pretty let down and wished you had waited for the iPad 2? Well, this offer from Apple may help the pain a little. Apple will refund the price difference to anyone who has their original purchase receipt and makes the request in the company’s standard 14 day return window. This should take you back to February 16, 2011.

Return The Complete Product?


If you wished you had the iPad 2 now you could of course, return your first generation iPad and get a full refund (as long as you are in the 14 day window). Then all you have to do is wait until March 11 (in the US) or March 25 (most other places) and get your hands on a brand spanking iPad 2 for the money you paid for your iPad 1.

Second Option


If you are happy with your original purchase though, it is worth heading to the Apple store and getting the additional $100 refund though, put it towards some nice accessories or something and sit back and wait for the iPad 3, that is rumored to be around by the end of this year – although we do doubt that, but stranger things have happened.
