Last day to qualify for iPhone 4 free bumper case program

Today's the last day you can buy an iPhone 4 and qualify for Apple's free bumper case program. If you buy an iPhone 4 tomorrow, you'll fall under the new policy:

For everyone else, we are discontinuing the free case program on all iPhone 4s sold after September 30, 2010. We are also returning to our normal returns policy for all iPhone 4s sold after September 30. Users experiencing antenna issues should call AppleCare to request a free Bumper case.

So once again, if you just want a free case, today's the last day to buy an iPhone 4 and qualify for one. After today, you'll have to have a real antenna problem and go through AppleCare.

Anyone rushing out to beat the deadline?
