How to Claim Your $100 "Early iPhone Owner" Credit

Apple has released the magic three steps it'll take to snag your $100 in store credit, which can be redeemed either at retail locations or the online store. According to our intern Benny, the process actually is as easy as it sounds: Fill in your phone number and your iPhone's serial number; you'll get a text message with an access code; pop in the access code and your phone number again. Bam. You have $100, which you can proceed to give right back to Apple. Update: The fine print says you have to be activated on AT&T, which is why they check your phone number. So if you're planning on jumping countries or carriers via unlocking, get your money first. Update #2: Another look at the fine print shows that the credit can not be applied to an Apple Gift Card, iTunes Store purchase or an iTunes Gift Card. [Apple]
