    I ordered one from these guys seems like a good deal even got $10 off through google checkout.I will let ya know if i recieve it and if it works out.I bought my macbook pro last december so i have been told on this forum i have up to a year to buy apple care but for 200 bucks it seems like a good deal considering on ebay it is 214.99 for the lowest price.I am sure someone hear will tell me a lower price somewhere else though

    Yes for sites like these i always use a major credit card.I had a site try to screw me before and the credit card company took care of it.Just took the money out of their visa payment check they get according to the operator person i dealt with.She also told me i would recieve my credit to my account immeadietly

    It's fairly ease to find a really good deal on Apple Care as long as you start looking 12 months before your 1 year is up (otherwise you forget) I got Apple Care for my Mac Pro for $165 if I'm not mistaking. I missed the chance to get Apple Care for teh MBP for $175, thats a steal, but I am sure I will find that again. I still have 11.5 months to find it after all.:D

    I broke my promise!

    ok, i ordered applecare for my macbook from them $129.
    we'll see if it's legit.

    i know the old saying -- if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    and i broke my promise to myself -- i wasn't going to order it til the 11th month because i might decide to upgrade. oh, well, what's life without broken promises?

    i bought from them through ebay, they have an ebay store as well. I bought Apple care for MBP for 194$ shipped about 2 months ago and got it activated the moment it arrived. now i have an apple's certificate for applecare so I shouldnt have any problems i guess.

    The only thing I hate is that they're actually not open on weekends. If they're a legit retail business then how come you can't call on weekends? Also, are they apple certified resellers? If not, does that cause issue?

    Just curious for the next time I need AC...I'd order from them if this all goes well for you all.

    They appear to be a contract eBay seller - other people bring them their goods or clearance inventory for them to sell. No warranties.
    M - F only would be typical of an owner operated business who doesn't have staff to handle phone lines 7 days a week.

    if you are a college student or have a kid in any grade you can get the apple care for $165.00-175 year round (at least in the DC/MD/VA area). The university of maryland has its own apple store and automatically applies the discounts. :D

    Just received and registered my copy from www.espotdeals.com for my macbook. No problems just like everyone else. I wasn't going to purchase apple care but it was a pretty good deal so I went ahead and did it. Definitely legit!!

    Care to give any reasons, or are you just gonna leave an unsubstantiated statement to flap in the wind?

    I've been in law enforcement for the past 10 years and it has taught me that certain streets in the U.S are usually bad areas no matter what state. MLK is usually one of them. That would of made me skeptical from buying from them. :rolleyes:

    I can vouch for eBay seller checkmark2015 -- I bought a brand-new Mac Pro AppleCare kit for $104.99 shipped & got it in two days. The seller had MacBook and iMac kits for sale at the time.

    Provantage.com and LA Computer Company are the lowest reputable retail prices I've seen online for AppleCare.

    I just bought apple care for my macbook off ebay for 50% of the price on apple.com, I'm not really sure how they can sell them this cheaply, or how they get them this cheap, but if it works I'm not complaining.
