    When purchasing a 2015 15" rMBP, does it matter where AppleCare is purchased? The regular price is $349 but Amazon has it for $244, I'm wondering if there is a catch.

    No it should be fine but make sure it's official. Don't purchase alongside your MBP because it will delay your delivery by a few days.

    In future I will just ring up AppleCare. You could ring them and see if they will do a price match...no harm in trying!

    No, it does not matter. You can buy from any retailer. Just make sure it is for your model. A MBA AppleCare won't work on a 15" MBP.

    No it doesn't matter where you get it. Just make sure it's from a legitimate retailer and for the model that you have. It's best you get it as soon as you can.

    Is it a bad idea to buy it from eBay if the buyer claims it is sealed (and they have good feedback)?
