(27-inch) iMac 3TB Hard Drive Replacement Program:
Saw this added June 19th to Apple's page of Exchange and Repair Extension Programs. Here's a clip from the 27" iMac 3TB Hard Drive Replacement Program page:
"Apple has determined that a very small number of 3TB hard drives used in 27-inch iMac systems, may fail under certain conditions. These systems were sold between December 2012 and September 2013.

Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) will replace affected hard drives free of charge.

Apple is contacting affected iMac owners who provided a valid email address during the product registration process to let them know about this program. If you have not been contacted, but think you have a 3TB hard drive, you can enter your serial number to see if it's part of this program...."

The S/N check and info on the replacement process are on the replacement program page which also has a link to contact apple regarding a refund if you paid for a repair/replacement due to this problem. (Apple notes "The program covers affected iMac models until December 19, 2015 or three years from its original date of sale, whichever provides longer coverage for you.")
