Apple Now Refunding Bumpers Purchased Online

July 22, 2010

If you purchased your Bumper from, you'll be glad (or disappointed) to find that Apple has now begun automatically issuing refunds. Indeed, an increasing number of users are reporting they have received the above email from Apple today.

Shipping and sales tax (or VAT) are being refunded as well, a nice gesture for those who didn't purchase their bumper along with their iPhone 4. However, we are hearing some complaints from folks who'd rather have gotten a second case. We understand, but right now these are in high demand, so it's really for the best. Also, there doesn't seem to be a way to prevent this process (in case you're a true fanboy and believe Apple should keep your money), which is unfortunate, I'm sure you'll admit.

So, what are you going to do with all this money?
