My amex gives me extra year. but its not going to cover if i drop it or spill some thing on it.
I am leaning tords Squaretrade.
I just did the 2 year with square trade.
I called and told them I had a 20% more off code.
And it would not work so they gave me more off.
I got the 2 year for 79.99
If any one wants that code to get more off... its
I've been offered a SquareTrade warranty when I buy something on eBay, but how do you get it otherwise, do you just go to their website and buy it?
Just placed my order for the 2 year SquareTrade warranty so when my iPad arrives from China, I'm good to go.
How exactly did you handle that? Did you use today's date as a purchase date? I tried to post-date the sale for a couple of weeks down the line and it wouldn't let me. I just hate the thought of getting dinged for the time I don't actually have it.
I placed my online order on 4/04/2010 and dated my warranty as such. Per the SquareTrade service agreement I received, "if your item is new and has a US manufacturer's warranty of at least 90 days, this service agreement begins the day you purchased the item". Technically however, as someone else already noted, the accidental clause doesn't take effect until 30 days after the date of purchase. So, I'm still going to have to wear mittens and use my iPad while laying on the floor for a few weeks.
The only issue I have is that the receipt you submit will be for the day it was charged when they finally get it out the door. That will be pretty darn near a month lost which leaves you mittenless because, by your own statement, your paperwork says 4/4. I ordered mine on day one but that's not the day I'll pay for it. If I actually put the date of order I'd have lost nearly two months by the time it gets here.
According to my online invoice via the Apple Online Store, my purchase date is 4/4/2010. The Apple invoice also lists the actual invoice date and date that the product was shipped. My credit card also lists a transaction for the same day in the amount listed on the invoice. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "a month lost". Having placed the order on 4/4, my iPad is already prepared for shipment and likely has already shipped tonight or will tomorrow morning.
