What do you guys think?
Isn't that the same price as Apple's in the Apple Store?
Hmmmmmmm so that's the price in the US Store? Cause i'm not from the US and that price is almost 40% off the price I would get from Apple Store over here.
A lot of people tend to forget the internet is world wide. Unless you can get it off ebay cheaper, go for a trustworthy store if that is one.
I bought mine from Expercom.com for the same price as your Singapore store, but Logan, Utah is quite a bit closer to home.
I would say either go with Expercom or if you have a CompUSA local -- check there. Last time I checked, AppleCare for MBP at one of the local stores was $349 less 30%. All AppleCare was 30% off. Still maybe not as good as eBay, but certainly more "secure." Good luck.
eBay has always seemed to have the best buys on Applecare. That is where I got mine for my MBP.
If you know someone that is in college, get them to purchase through the edu store. Applecare for my MBP was $239! I think applecare is the most substantial discount that is given to students.
I think both links are way overpriced. The Applecare for Macbook/iBook retails for $249 from Apple. The first link Big Five Shop lists the retail at $279, so people think they are getting a better deal at $199. The second link at $189 is a better deal, but still not close to what you can find it on eBay. I got mine for $140, plus $5 shipping. The seller usually lists 4 or 5 of these deals daily and they go quick. Just keep watching, a good deal with come up. Remember, you have a year to buy it, shop around until the best deal comes up.
I got my applecare on eBay and paid $199 with shipping. I was closing in on my one year so I didn't have much time to wait for a better price, but that's still a heck of a lot better than retail and $40+ cheaper than student discount.
Check to see if your local CompUSA still has AppleCare in stock. I got it for the MBP for $209.00. So $140.00 off or 40% take your pick.
Note www.compusa.com is no longer CompUSA (It was bought out by a holding company who owns TigerDirect.com) So don't expect to see any discounts.
I just picked up Applecare for my Macbook for $140 at Compusa. About the only deal I have ever gotten at Compusa....good riddance.
How can you make sure you get the right apple care for your MBP? Seems like the listings i saw on e-bay have a model number. Is that all that's requried for it to be valid? Also, how can the guys that list on e-bay get such a deal? I'm sure they are still making money, so that means they got it even cheaper. How though???
It will have "Macbook Pro" right on the front of the unit.
Apple makes 2 versions of Applecare for the notebooks. One is for the Macbook Air/Macbook/iBook and the other for the MacbookPro/Powerbook.
Inside the box is a serial number which needs to be registered with Apple.
I am not sure how the eBay sellers get the Applecare. But, personally I am glad they do. I certainly liked paying the cheaper price of $140 as opposed to $249. It just goes to show you the huge markup there is on this item.
There are virtually NO LISTINGS on eBay compared to a few months back...
CompUSA no longer sells AppleCare...
$257.52 from Apple Store...
Should I wait until my warranty is a week from being over and hope something pops up?
2.33gHz MacBookPro - MA515LL/a
There are 3 of these on eBay right now for the Macbook Pro. Buy it now for $200, and free shipping
I went to the CompUSA in my area on Friday afternoon to pickup AppleCare for my MacBook. Unfortunately I was a day late. The manager told me he no longer had any MacBooks for sale, therefore he shipped his last 3 MacBook AppleCares to Hawaii that very morning. I knew I should have stopped on Thursday!
Try ebay, there is usually some good prices for applecare there, especially for the MBP
Is Expercom reliable company? They sell the Macbook Pro Applecare for $200, cheapest ive seen anywhere.
I bought mine (MBP) from Ebay for $178.
It's cheaper than instore, plus I live in Europe and with a weak $ it made me save even more.
I obviously have no idea if I will at least break it even with a $178 repair in the next couple of years, but I feel relaxed now
Check out http://www.amazon.com they have really good deal. $186 (free shipping) on the 13" MacBook.
do you think that the OP is still wondering where to buy cheap applecare for his mac after 2 YEARS!?
the last post on this thread, before you, was May '08 and the thread was started 4 months before that.
Whats the cost price for Applecare? Why can people on ebay sell it cheaply? Do they use an illegal means to obtain it? Eg Keygens
i got my applecare for £48. gotta love student discounts
