Has anyone used the visa signature extended warranty? Its supposed to give an extra years worth of coverage to a product purchased entirely with your visa card (cap one for me)

Would this be more or less as good as the applecare plan? I know you lose the benefit of taking it directly to apple to have it replaced, but supposedly you can take it there and have it fixed and get reimbursement for the cost of the fix

any experiences?

think about it. an extended warranty merely extends the manufacturer's warranty. if the regular warranty doesn't cover accidental damage, then an extended warranty won't either.
