    Check the receipt. For an additional $265.00 they include AppleCare for free :)

    Technically that additional three years isn't AppleCare. AppleCare is the combination of three years of extended warranty and three years of phone support.

    By this definition, when you buy a computer, it comes with one year of warranty, not one year of AppleCare.

    US discount

    If you access the US Apple Student site, Apple care is $183 for 13" MBP / MBA vs the $249 that it costs full retail... Not Free, but I'll take the $75 off :)
