A funny sad and happy story for me to share with the rest of you. On the fourth of July, my girlfriend and I went to best buy and bought an open boxed Macbook pro 13 inch base model. (Best buy with their deceptive ad practices, claiming the 1199 price was the sale price which we all know it isn't) They offered me the accidental protect plan but I declined, I wanted more time to think about it. I haven't dropped or destroyed any computers since I started using computers oh so long ago. We left and the next day something nagged at me, I have accidental plans on most my other apple gadgets, my ipad 2, my ipod, and my old iphone 4 which I sold a few months ago. What's 150 bucks right? So I bought it that day and didn't think anything of it until, as you guessed, I spilled a bowl of cereal on my macbook pro!! Two days after purchase and one day after purchase of the accidental warranty plan. That's where the sadness comes in and yes you can laugh at me now. I could give you excuses, but I was dumb plain and simple. Took it to best buy a few days later because of work and they all had a nice laugh and smile about it. Told me it would take three weeks to fix and sent me on my way sans Macbook pro. That's the only caveat to Best Buy protection plans, they have to send the item out for repair first before anything can happen to it. Needless to say today comes around and something again tells me to check the status of my repair and low and behold, my repair was awaiting my approval on something from the 14th!! No one called me to tell me this. Best buy again, smh. So I called and they said come in, the repair center determined it was too expensive to repair and that I should get a new computer. Long story short, I received a brand new macbook pro 13 inch, a 100 dollar gift card for the student promotion (although I didn't get student pricing because supposedly the laptop was already on sale, didn't feel like arguing). Get the accidental protection it's worth it. Square trade is better though but lucky for me I went best buy. Thanks for taking your time to read.
