    Yes.

    Just One: It's your parent's AMEX card. What the hell else do you want?

    depending on the type .... or maybe all of them... your mbp will automatically have it's original 1 year warranty extended to 2 (buying on a credit card i believe doubles the original warranty up to 1 year additional and up to 1000 dollars worth.. or something)

    other than that's that's about it.

    I think it's covered under accidental damage for 3 months after the initial purchase too up to 1000 dollars.

    the other good thing, if your purchase gets STOLEN, you are covered.. depending on the card. you have to give a lot of paperwork, but it's worth it...

    Triple Amex Member Rewards

    IF you your card is linked to the Amex Member Rewards (MR) program and IF you access the Apple Store through the MR section of the online American Express MR site BEFORE ordering, anything you order in the store (except IPhone) will get you Triple Rewards. I think it used to be double rewards, but it recently went up, possibly in anticipation of the holidays.
