For many of us, as the holiday season comes to an end we are actively trying to find out how we can return some of our unwanted gifts. Now Apple is helping making our list of returns just a little bit easier. Sometimes when you get ten iTunes gift cards you find yourself making random purchases you would never spend your own money on and then the regret settles in shortly after. Thankfully Apple is now offering refunds for iTunes purchases.

Unfortunately Apple won’t let you get a refund for the actual gift card but you can receive a refund for the purchases you made. Apple has recently introduced a 14-day, no-questions-asked return policy to its European customers. This includes purchases made on iTunes, the App Store as well as iBooks. You can send Apple a notice of cancellation and they will send you a refund within two weeks. However, since there’s no way for them to actually lift the file from your hard drive, you get to keep it.

It seems like Apple may have just created a loophole that customers will definitely love (and probably take advantage of) but it’s uncertain how this new offer will actually benefit Apple.
