So I was planning to sell my rMBP 15 inch, for a new Touch Bar 13 inch ( later decided not to as everyone here says its not worth the headache). Still having apple care until march 7th of 2019 and never have used it i decided to send it in to get a battery replaced and 85 watt charger exchanged.Once they received it at the depo they ended up replacing the screen battery bottom casing and the MagSafe port. The repair took around 2 days. I was out of town so I didn't end up actually picking up the computer until last Thursday the 15th. Upon receiving and opening it I was mesmerized with how amazing it looked. Once I decided to use it i realized the charger was not in the packaging so I called them to find out that it wouldn't get to me until Monday. I was a tad bit angry about this but I did have my 45 watt MBA charger so I was still fine. later that day while using it (still the 15th) the screen flickered and went black but came back on, in response to this i took it to my local apple store. They ran various test and diagnostics and reinstalled the Mojave software stating it had to be a software issue as it passed all diagnostics. Fast forwarding to Sunday the 19th the display's backlight and keyboard lights went out again but this time it didn't comeback on. So Monday I took it back to the same genius bar and they thought it may just need a motherboard replacement. So they send it into the repair depo under the "repeat repair clause" for a motherboard replacement, I received an email from apple stating there was a problem with the repair and to contact them immediately. I call in to be told my computer still was not displaying any lights even after the motherboard replacement and that my unit will need to be replaced entirely. This is terrible as i was content with keeping my 2015 until apple ditched these terrible butterfly keyboards and the problems attached. The rep gave me until saturday to make a decision or they will have to send my old unit back un-repaired. What should I do in my situation guys do I have any sort of leeway.
