    Looking to get this for my 2016 13" MacBook Pro non touchbar.

    Obviously found better prices not directly from Apple but which versions work, does anyone know?

    Some say MacBook/MacBook Air/13" MacBook Pro and some say MacBook Pro on the box.

    Any advice on which one or whether they both work would be great if anyone knows.

    Many thanks.

    I tried finding on Apple's website, but they want hardware serial number to determine which product to sell you.

    Maybe try that and see which model AppleCare the website offers you? The model# is sometimes in the URL so you can suss it out if you examine the full address in your address bar in Safari/Chrome/whathaveyou.

    B&H Photo in New York is one of the best places to buy Apple Care as their prices are generally lower than elsewhere. However, Apple Care is now Apple Care+ so be sure to look for that. It now covers accidental damage less a deductible.

    They can't use AppleCare+ if they bought their computer >60 days ago.
    Plus, AppleCare+ may be US-only at the moment. I thought I read somewhere it wasn't available in the UK yet.

    Yes, I only have the option of AppleCare not plus unfortunately.

    Sorry about that, I didn't notice your locale. It does look like your choice is only Apple Care. Shop around, I'm sure there must be places in the UK that sell Apple Care for less than what Apple charges.

    Japan seems to only be offering Apple Care+ on their website, despite their support page saying I am eligible to buy Apple Care (standard) within 12 months. This is very unclear and disingenuous. `you are eligible for Apple Care . . . but you can't buy it from us. Good luck.`

    The best place is probably through Apple with education discount if you can get it. They do 50% off Apple Care with an NUS card.

    And there are a few perfectly legal ways of getting an NUS without enrolling at a University :cool:
