Apple Watch $100 rebate program ‘designed to not pay out’ – Gurman


Some persons are discovering that an Apple Watch $100 rebate program introduced by Apple just isn’t being honored by carriers.

Bloomberg Apple correspondent Mark Gurman has gone so far as to say that the deal is “designed to not pay out” …

Apple introduced the promotion with a single line in a press launch about Apple Watch Sequence 7 availability.

Clients should buy Apple Watch (GPS + Mobile) instantly from or at an Apple Retailer and get $100 again once they activate it with T-Cell/Dash or Verizon. 

There was no small print or footnote within the launch with any circumstances. Nonetheless, as we famous, each T-Cell and Verizon had their very own small print.

Neither service has made claiming the rebate simple. T-Cell/Dash requires the Watch to be activated on a brand new and particular plan; then consumers should go to a microsite inside 30 days to enter a promo code; and at last wait six to eight weeks to obtain the rebate as a $100 digital pay as you go MasterCard. Verizon requires it to be activated on a brand new postpaid information plan; completion of a web based or app utility inside 30 days; then wait eight weeks for a Verizon reward card.

However Gurman tweeted that some T-Cell prospects are being advised the promotion doesn’t exist.

FYI for @tmobile prospects shopping for a Watch Sequence 7: The service is wrongly denying the rebate marketed on Apple’s web site, with cellphone help saying the promotion doesn’t exist. Would maintain off on shopping for for this deal until it really works for others.
