didn't know about that...
I like the idea though...so if I ever decided to sell my macbook I can get a refund and register my (new hypothetically purchased) macbook pro by spending the extra bucks?

They are sending me a pro rated check to the registered address.... If i did not live in Fla I could have gotten a free on for my macbook....

You won't necessarily get a full refund. They will refund you for the unused portion.
I had it less then 2 months OK by me :)

Yeah, I was offered that option when I had my computer replaced under warranty. Problem was, I'd bought AppleCare about 2 weeks prior, but the prorated refund was based on the original warranty date a year earlier. I would've had to pay an extra $60 to repurchase it for my new machine, which I thought was a bit absurd. I just transferred it instead, so I had a year less AppleCare than I would've had if I'd waited, but I don't expect problems.

It would have been definitely worth it to pay the extra $60

Yeah, $60 bucks for two additional years of apple care (it's three years total, right?) if it costs, what, $350 or so bucks for three years - over $100 a year - then $30 a year is a pretty huge savings.

Any product service contract (commonly referred to as extended warranties) offer a pro rated refund. In fact, it is mandated in about 23 states. Some states allow claims paid to be deducted from the refund amount, some don't.
