    So, if I were to buy a mbp from apple without apple care. Do I get two years of coverage since AMEX extends it?

    Applecare and AMEX coverage are completely independent. AMEX coverage involves filing a claim for any damage and subsequent cost of repair. Applecare is on-site "instant" warranty service. Having AMEX coverage doesn't "extend" Applecare because they are separate entities.

    On site? Not at all. Inaccurate info. Instant? Many beg to differ.
    But Amex will extended the warranty by one year. However, you have more hoops to jump through in year two with Amex than you would with Applecare.
