  • Apple Flies 25 Billionth App Contest Winner to Beijing to Collect Prize



    Apple flew 25 billionth app download contest winner Chunli Fu to the company’s Beijing headquarters to collect her $10,000 Apple Store gift card prize.

    Apple announced Fu won the contest earlier this month, and she finally received her gift card in person at Apples corporate headquarters some 400 miles away from her home city of Qingado, China according to M.I.C. Gadget.

    Fu won the contest with a download of the free version of Disney’s “Where’s My Water?”, but at the time wasn’t too much of an Apple fan and had only owned her iPhone for about one month. However, after winning the contest the Chinese media started referring to her as the “Apple girl.” Fu wasn’t even aware of the contest though, and thought Apple's repeated congratulatory phone calls were pranks. It took an email from Apple for Fu to finally realize she wasn’t being punked.

    Fu browsed the Apple Store in Sanlitun with her new $10,000 Apple Store gift card, but it’s uncertain if she bought anything. With $10,000 to spend on Apple products, I can imagine Fu becoming a little more of an Apple fan in the near future.

    What would you do with a $10,000 Apple Store gift card?

      With 10,000 I'd buy every useless app on the App Store just for fun.

      Btw, can you buy idevices with that money? I heard someone saying you could.

      Maybe buy a few accessories for my MacBook Pro, sell the card for $8000 and use the cash for something else or let it sit in savings and collect interest.

      How come the people that always win these are never even aware of the contest. The last time the parent of the teen that won called apple directly because she thought it was a scam.

      First, I think she's from Qingdao as I can't find a map showing 'Qingado' (which sounds more Spanish than Chinese). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qingdao

      Second, since $10,000 US is going to buy her at least double in yuan, it might be worth it to buy a thousand $10 gift cards and give/sell them and cash them out that way.

      Third, we now know that it is technically possible to get a $10,000 Apple Store gift card. Now maybe some of these Wall Street finance folks that have been ripping everyone off, tanking their companies and still get Multi-million dollar bonuses can start spending some of that in Apple Store gift cards and we can finally start seeing this 'trickle down' happen.

      I would give half of the money to Apple and tell them to make an iPhone the way I want. Design and performance.
