AppleCare

Coming up to my end of my 1 year of AppleCare and need to decide if I want an additional 2 years. Apple charges $279. I remember getting it elsewhere for cheaper. Not enough time left to go the way of eBay. Any other places to consider?

Some of thise cheapo eBay prices are for fraudulant numbers.

Shame to find out just when you need it!!!

Never ceases to amaze me that people will pay top dollar for an Apple computer and then want to cheap-out on all the accessories.... Go figure!

I remember buying a legit AppleCare number on eBay a number of years ago. No issue there.
As far as accessories go such as extra chargers,etc....I agree. I definitely wouldn't consider AppleCare an accessory. An accessory is something you could and would use on a daily basis. AppleCare is something you may never use. I'd call it an add-on if anything.

I only buy Applecare from the Apple Store. It is the only way to protect yourself and your machine. It has benefited me more than it cost over the years.

It's a fair bit less if you qualify for educational pricing. But if not, even the $279 is worth it. Considering the newer Macs have almost no DIY repairability, it's honestly a no brainer at this point.

stick with apple - maybe on friday - they may have black friday sale on them.
dont buy AppleCare from eBay or anywhere else unless it is an apple reseller - local one

OK, so make that "accessories AND add-ons....." since you seem determined to miss the point.....

So, I purchased Applecare from apple.ca and got the confirmation email, but how do I register it before Monday's expiration date? It won't arrive till Dec. 12. I suppose my proof of purchase email with the date of purchase would suffice, although I can't register my MBP until I physically get the certificate number.

Cutting it a little fine, are we??

I think the only recourse you have would be to phone the Apple store and "shop by phone"?
