    So I'm considering an insurance plan for the first time for my 6. I've researched Applecare+ and Squaretrade and I'm thinking of going with Squaretrade mainly because of the ability to extend into a third year for 30$. I just wanted to see if there are any coupons/discounts floating about that I should know about before I order. I've seen lots of people mention getting pretty good discounts on Squaretrade plans.

    I think many of the coupons that were available expired in conjunction with the iPhone 6 release. Square trade had a special prior to release date. I bought the two year plan for $94.00. I don't typically hang on to a phone longer than two years.

    I just got the 2 year plan for $84. Call SquareTrade customer service to purchase and mention that you have a 40% off coupon that you can't get to work on the site. They generate one for you, no questions asked. My iPhone 6 doesn't even arrive until Wednesday but I've already got it insured. $75 deductible for accidental and no deductible for device hardware issues.

    Covers spills, liquid immersion, cracked screens, etc. You name it, they cover it. Overnighted replacements or you can even get it fixed at Apple and SquareTrade will reimburse you up to your coverage amount. My iPhone 6 coverage is up to $999.99. For $42 a year, you can't really go wrong.

    I was just coming here to post the same thing. I called and said I was interested in purchasing a warranty and had heard others had a 40% off coupon, was there anything they could do for me. The gentleman on the phone gave me a coupon so that the final price is $84 It never hurts to ask!

    Don't ever use their repair service -- always use Apple and get reimbursed.
    I let them replace my iPhone 4 and it was so full of aftermarket parts that I was never able to sell it at anything near market value.

    Thanks GJWilly that's a great point. Luckily I have an Apple store not far from me so that's what I'll use and get reimbursed.

    Yep, I'll always go this route. The option is there, I'm not sure why anyone wouldn't.

    That's a good price. My policy with Square Trade was $94- for two years. I normally don't keep a phone beyond two years.

    Ditto. My upgrade is every two years, so that's sufficient for me.

    AppleCare doesn't cover water damage or most other accidental stuff. I'd rather spend $84 for two years of all-inclusive coverage. I can get repairs at Apple and SquareTrade will reimburse. Good enough for me!

    Applecare covers 2 incidents of accidental damage.

    The only thing squaretrade covers that applecare doesn't is theft.

    squaretrade does not cover theft. At least thats what it showed when I went to get my plan.

    I decided with me having to take the phone to the apple store if something happened and getting reimbursed(I wouldnt let squaretrade do the repair) that it was best for me to just get applecare+ for $99..

    I did the same, dealing with reimbursement is a pain and I've never broken 2 phones in my whole life, never mind the same phone twice.

    Thanks. Correct me if I'm wrong, though, but shouldn't 40% off be $60? Their 2 year plan is $99 and has been for a while. $84 would be 15% off. http://www.squaretrade.com/iphone-warranty

    They already have a certain percentage of a markdown. The plan was original $129 or something like that.
