I don't know why people think there might be a chance that the Apple store guys will say, "Oh, sure, let's just give you another one!"

You'll have to buy it all over again if you didn't have insurance or Applecare+ on it.
They actually do do that. They can salvage working parts off of your old one and give you a remanufactured one at a discounted price.

But thanks for the clarification.

Not true. At least not in the US. They will let you swap at part cost if you are still under limited warranty. On an iPad mini that's about $225-250 depending on whether wifi or +cellular

That generally doesn't happen. There was likely something else going on that made them decide to cover it, particularly that much later. Like the Nvidia quality thing were they covered machine with a particular card for up to a couple of years past warranty

And you're only reinforcing the stereotype that Apple customers are snobby know-it-alls.
