Apple says Bah-Humbug to the USA on it's 12 Days of Christmas App Give-Away

Well this Christmas I finally got an iPhone 4S. My first smart phone ever I decided to make the jump to an Apple product also switching from Verizon to Sprint to get the UN-limited data option.

I really have NOT been an "Apple or Mac" guy. PC was for me. But I decided to give the bitten fruit a shot.

My first experience was a good one. I had been given an iTunes gift card from my niece for my iPod shuffle about 4 years ago. I had thrown it in a pile and all but forgot about it as I had forgotten about the iPod. But low and behold I logged in to the iTunes store, punched in the gift code, and it was accepted and credited to my account. NOT BAD!

Well today I get a tweet about an Apple promotion called "Apple’s 12 Days of Christmas app" (you can follow me on twitter here) → UBtalkin Now in its fourth year, the 12-day promotion runs from December 26 to January 6 direct from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and surprises users of the app with a free digital download from iTunes each day. This year's giveaway begins with a free copy of Coldplay's live EP from the recent Apple-sponsored iTunes Festival in London.

From Apple,"You and your friends can download a fantastic selection of songs, music videos, apps and books for free. Each download will only be available for 24 hours. Get our special 12 Days of Christmas app to make it even easier to access your gifts while you’re on the go."

I excitedly went to the app store to get this as we ALL like FREE stuff  BUT alas it's NOT available to US customers! Only available, I was told, for Canada, the U.K., and a few other select European nations.


Someone at Apple please explain why this is not available for your US customers! Don't we count too?

Looks like Apple is back on my $hit list!
