Apple’s No Cash Policy: Free iPad and Policy Changed

We have a very interesting article for you to read now, in which one particular story attracted a national news outbreak and prompted Apple to change one of their long-standing policies throughout their retail stores.

As reported from MacRumors, Apple previously didn’t allow customers to purchase the iPad tablet device with cash – they only accepted credit card.

But this has all changed, thanks to Diane Campbell – a women who was refused the cash purchase of an Apple iPad. Apple’s Senior Vice President for Retail Ron Johnson has now announced that cash is now allowed for future purchases of the iPad, as long as customers set up their Apple account at stores first.

Johnson had this to say on the matter: ”As of today, anyone can pay for an iPad with cash as long as they set up their Apple account at the store. Apple accounts are needed for the iPad anyway, so that is not putting anyone out.”

Better yet for Campbell, she has now received an iPad free of charge as a gesture of goodwill by Apple. But perhaps she will be better known for the woman who created a bit of history by changing Apple’s ‘No Cash’ policy.

Give us your thoughts on this story.
