Apple Giving $100 Refunds To Recent iPad Buyers

Apple is giving $100 back to customers who bought an original iPad in the last two weeks before the iPad 2 was announced, CNET reports.

Apple unveiled the iPad 2 on Wednesday. It’s a fairly minor update — thinner, lighter, slightly faster, with two cameras — and the company is selling it for the same price as the original iPad, starting at $499.

It also cut the price of the original iPad by $100 to try and clear inventory ahead of the iPad 2.

But what about customers who bought an original iPad and now feel ripped off? If they bought it after February 16, they can take their receipt to the Apple store they bought it and get a $100 refund on their credit card. Customers who bought online can call Apple’s customer service number at 800-676-2775.

Check out some big, beautiful photos of the iPad 2.
