If you’re one of those on the cutting edge of Apple technology and got yourself an iPhone soon after the launch, that $100 Apple Store credit Jobs offered you in lieu of a $200 price reduction is now available online. The process is pretty simple and gives instant gratification (no snail mail involved); just follow the instructions on the website and enter in your iPhone phone number and serial number and then Apple will message you with a special access code. Once you enter that in you’re good to go.
If you’re wondering if you qualify, the $100 credit applies to anyone who bought the iPhone from AT&T or Apple at full price prior to August 22. But, rumor has it that some of those who have purchased the new price-reduced iPhones have been able to enter their number and get the credit anyway. No confirmations on that on – you might expect some recourse if you do get that to work but hey, it’s worth a try.
