    Looks ok to me, but there's no way to tell completely until you register it.

    Given that you get the box provides a higher degree of comfort as most counterfeit applecares are sold without the box

    eBay AppleCare seems to be a no-go nowadays as Apple may ask for proof of purchase when registering or using the plan. A receipt of eBay action is not accepted, so even if you get the box, you may face issues.

    Take a look at Amazon for instance. They sell discounted AppleCare which is 100% legit.

    my 1 year warranty expires tomorrow, june 25, and i was also considering buying from amazon instead of directly from apple to save the $40.

    i understand you have to extend before expiration (june 25), but if i order from amazon today and don't get the box until monday or tuesday, am i still ok, since my receipt of the box would be after june 25?
