    Not really sure where to post this but looking for a bit of advice.

    I bought an iMac last week (my first ever Mac) and i purchased the apple care.

    Thought i'd register it on line yesterday and during the process it wants me to add a code thats on the card in the box.

    Thing is there isn't a card in the box!? Just a thick booklet :confused:

    Any ideas!?

    Thanks

    There should be three things, the big booklet, DVD and a smaller booklet. The code is in the smaller booklet, see my attachments

    If you bought the AppleCare at the same time as the Mac it may have been registered for you at that time.

    :eek: i didn't have that card!? :(

    I did buy it at the same time in an Apple Store. Do you think it was a box without the card in it because they registered it?

    In that case, it has been auto-enrolled so you don't get the code. You can check you warranty from here!

    A little tip when you get home, it'll ask for your serial number on the Mac, just go to your Apple icon, click "About this Mac", select "More info" and copy/paste your serial number onto the Apple Care page. Saves you time from reading your ultra fine-print on the box.
