    In my opinion, for Apple products, including AppleCare, that $20 is worth shelling out to make sure you get the exact thing you want, no scams, etc. I dunno, just my opinion.

    You get the same thing from Amazon that you get if you walked into the Apple Store - retail box and all. It's safe, and yes, you save money. I highly recommend it.

    The previous poster's remarks are better referred to buying Apple Care from ebay, not Amazon.

    Rest assured the $20 discount you get from Amazon does not make it a scam. I would buy from Amazon for the discount over Apple or take my chances on eBay.

    Amazon is a legit site and have never had a problem buying through them directly - even macs.

    However check the store's/seller's reputation if you buy it through amazon marketplace (individuals selling through online storefronts) though.

    For pretty much any other site this is true, but Amazon doesn't exactly have a reputation for scamming.

    ...was going to get it from LA computer but they wouldn't ship to a military FPO address... I checked amazon and it ended up being cheaper by a few bucks once you figured in the shipping cost to LA computer (that they wouldn't ship anyway)...
