    Nope, not needed.

    They'll sell you a box that contains an activation code. It'll have instructions for you to visit a website, where you'll enter that activation code plus your MBP's serial number. That's about it.

    Make sure your MBP is less than a year old. The website won't let you activate your AppleCare if your MBP is older than a year.

    If you're in college, work for a educational institute, gov't/military, or your business normally gets an Apple discount, be sure to mention it when you buy your AppleCare -- they should be able to discount the price for you. The store near me will even give you the discount if you bring a friend that qualifies, but that policy may vary by location. :)

    You don't even need to buy it in person. You can buy it online, if you prefer. No need to present your computer to anyone; you can buy without even owning a MBP, yet. The serial number on your computer is sufficient for registering AppleCare.

    Don't forget to check your warranty status before you purchase it.

    From this link you can also activate it, when you buy it.
