I had reached the store around 8:45am, having checked iStudio’s Facebook page the night before for the launch timing (at 10am). There were no notices being posted about the iPad sales other than the launch timing being 10am.
There was no queue at 8:45am.
When the shutters lifted, we went straight in to the cashier and placed our orders.
The lady sales person at the cashier said, “our iPads are only sold as a bundle with a screen protector for an additional $39. Do you want the matte or glossy screen protector?”
We didn’t understand the first time, and thus wanted the lady to explain.
iStudio is refusing to sell the iPad Airs without an additional purchase of a no-brand screen protector for $39.
These are the no-brand screen protectors that they are forcing everyone to buy. The photos are taken at another retail store. They are priced at $24.90, more than ten dollars lower than what iStudio wanted to charge everyone for.
