I've tried twice to get my purchase date changed. No dice. Both times they go away and come back telling me that their system shows it's a demo and they can't change it. The second time I was asked to upload the receipt, which I did while on the phone, and then the csr spent some time with me on hold and came back with the bad news.

Worked out as my Surface Book just died out of the blue. My Surface 1 and Surface 2 had issues of their own. No damage, no nothing. Real hesitant to buy another Microsoft product at this point.

Now time to update the purchase date with Apple.



Yeah my second one today had nothing but the tablet. The manager grabbed a charger and cable off the wall and readjusted the tablet price accordingly. So I paid only $450 for the tablet and $25 each for the charger and the cable - will be returning both as I have dozens of USB C chargers laying around.
I see why some stores refused to sell these demo units based on your last comment...

Did you setup a callback through the link I posted or did you just call them?

The one from the second call was probably going to do it but he saw the notes the first one left. How did the first one know it was a demo?

It literally says on the bill that it is a demo. The few times it sounded like they were going to do it when they had to escalate they looked closer at my bill and was like "The item says it is a demo" so I can't change it.

Both were call backs. The receipt does not say demo. First guy didn't ask for my account, just the ipad serial number, determined it was demo with that. Second asked for my account and the serial #.

My receipt doesn't say demo on it. They determined it was a demo based on the serial #.

Can you post a snip of the bill? The ones posted on here (and mine) say that they are demo

You can see the word demo on the Line item: "LDU iPad demo fr 11p" and on the discount "Sale of demo model"

You sure your receipt doesn’t say it’s a demo? It does show it as a demo on the receipt….

Also, I was just wondering why did you get 2 of them?
hmm the 5 stores you mentioned are these the ones you are referring to? :
"These stores have it in stock in Vancouver/Yukon:
- 64
- 79
- 100
- 249
- 321"

If that's the case then none of those are in GVRD area. They are either on vancouver island or northern BC. Can we get our local staples store to get them transfered them from these locations? TIA

Apple finding out that Staples is selling Demo units is gonna cause a shit storm at Staples HQ.

Yours doesn’t say demo because they didn’t give you the $50 off. I think that too many people did the change purchase date thing and they caught up.

I’m not from Vancouver so I wasn’t aware of that. Yes you can get them transferred to your location but it’s up to the store to decide if it’s too far or not and those stores might not have them anymore.

Go to a store with the SKU and ask them which staples have them and if they can get it transferred to your location.

Are you using stock track to determine stores with stock?

I know someone that works at a staples and they can check the stock for all of Canada. I tried with stock track and it doesn’t show up for some reason.

I'm not sure how that would help you, each store only has one demo unit. One was downtown Vancouver and one was in Surrey.

Thanks, I am aware they didn't give me the $50 off, the manager refused.

I was proving my receipt doesn't say demo and hence wasn't what triggered them to know it was a demo model.
