Will I have to wait a week to possibly get a refund?

I was checking out strategy games on the app store and I clicked the top paid apps link, but I saw Carcassonne in the what's hot section so I clicked that instead but iTunes took me to the top paid charts and in the same area where I clicked Carcassonne name was the purchase button for Chess with Friends. So I bought it by accident and requested a refund a few seconds after I this.

I know the App Store is taking 1 week off for app updates and releases. Any chance I can still get my refund or not this week?

thanks

Refund? Do Apple give a refund for accidentally buying a game??? I wouldn't have thought so.

I have done the same in the past (some radio app due to oversensitive touchpad on my laptop) - I force password entry now so I cannot buy anything without entering my password again.

Just think of it that you have given the dev an extra xmas present

To make it quick: You won`t see your Money this Year.

Refunds take around three to four Weeks during Holidays. It might even expand if you had ask regular for a Refund with your Account.

Also if you ask it to many Times they will block that Option for you and after that you won`t be able to get even a 1 Cent Refund. Use it wisely!
