Returning app store Games

Hey guys! I recently purchased a game accidently and am in the process of trying to return it. I looked at my recent purchases and reported a problem and filled out the apporpriate information. I was wondering if anyone knows how long this usually takes to get refunded the money as it has been over a day and I am wondering if apple has received the request and if theres any way to find out if they will refund me the money. Thanks for the help.

P.S: I figured this could go in this forum because it relates to games

It's happened to me, and Apple had emailed back within a day. I don't know what the average is, but it's probably around a few days.

ok thanks...im going on a trip tomorrow so i was kind of hoping to get the money refunded today as it is in gift cards but i can understand the delay as this has got to be one of the busiest times for apple with the new iphone and 3.0. Thanks for the response. Im still open to more though

Did you have multiple accounts? Because that's what once happened to me, I bought a game on one account and accidentally re-downloaded it on another, thinking I was on the same one... so I accidentally bought it twice. But it's good that Apple responded so quickly!
