If you paid for an out-of-warranty battery replacement for your iPhone, then Apple want to give you some money back. They're offering $80 refunds to any customers who received replacement batteries for their iPhone 6 (or later devices) last year. Here's how you can get your refund.
If you paid for an out-of-warranty battery replacement between January 1 and December 28, 2017 at one of Apple's authorised service locations, you are eligible for the credit. At the time, you were likely slugged a tidy $119 for the replacement.
However, on December 28 last year, Apple announced that the out-of-warranty battery replacement would only cost $39. An $80 difference. While that price drop is somewhat old news, Apple offering credits is welcomed by many iPhone users, we're sure.
It's a similar situation to what car owners in NSW dealt with earlier this year, where prices on insurance were dropped so customers who had already paid the premium were able to claim money back.
In Apple's case, you won't have to claim a refund, with Apple stating "eligible customers will be contacted ... via email between May 23, 2018 and July 27, 2018 with instructions on how to obtain the credit." If you believe you are eligible for the refund and aren't contacted via email by August 1, 2018, you will need to make sure you contact Apple Support before the cutoff date of December 31, 2018.
Note: If you got a battery replacement while your phone was in warranty, you aren't eligible for a credit. Makes sense, Apple aren't just going to give away money, right?
After moving up from Adelaide, one thing was immediately clear to me. Sydney drivers spend a lot of money registering their vehicles.
To better support those injured on the roads and to reduce Green Slip costs for vehicle owners, the NSW Government reformed the CTP Green Slip scheme and implemented a new scheme that started on December 1, 2017. 4.2 million vehicle owners are eligible for a refund. Here's how to claim your refund.
