what is the absolute cheapest price for the Macbook Air AppleCare 3-year plan?

after searching everywhere, it seems like the lowest is from a New York camera store which sells it for $163.... that's a very good discount off the $249 list price, but I just wanted to make sure there's now lower price anywhere....

thanks!

B&H is the best I've found.

Used it for my last MBP, will again for my current model.

Any issues for a Canadian buying it from B&H (will lose a little on the exchange but am more concerned about unknowns like customs & duties and being able to activate it)?

Thanks

Another thing you can do to avoid the customs/taxes is purchase from an eBay seller with lots of good ratings and get them to simply email the code and destroy the rest. I did that for my my MBP some years back. If I happen to order something from B&H this year, I will likely get one for my MBA included in the order.

Notebook warranties are worldwide, so you don't have to purchase your AppleCare in Canada.

Cheers!

Not a good advice!

I recommend the threat discussing AppleCare from third party sellers:
https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/690859/

In short: There is a chance that Apple comes back to you later to verify the authenticity of your AppleCare which you will have to prove with a qualified invoice or the code that is on the (physical) package.

Good info about applecare from non-authorized resellers.

NOW, as I try to order Applecare for my MBP, I notice that B&H won't ship it to Canada anymore - it seems that Apple has created restrictions. If I was traveling to the USA before the one year is up, I would purchase it down there....

Cheers!
