    Hi everyone,
    Thanks to months of procrastinating, my 1 year warranty is about to run out (in around 15 days).
    I was wondering if any of you bought your applecare online, and if you know of anyone that would email me the activation code instead of having to wait for it to ship... I'm currently overseas and by the time it arrives here it may be too late.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ilan

    If you trust me enough, I can go to the store and buy you a copy from the store with my student discount and send you the code mind that you send me the money by PayPal. I'll send you the box separately later... PM me if you want.

    Ebay. Just ask them to email you the code. That is what I did.

    when I bought applecare from Apple's store, they activated it immediately on the telephone......sure there are cheaper sources but if you need it taken care of right away, just call them and buy it over the telephone

    I just bought AppleCare for my MacBook Pr from L.A. Computer Company:

    http://www.lacomputercompany.com/cgi-bin/rpcart/index.cgi?command=dispitem&type=sku&sku=10126

    It was much cheaper than I found it anywhere else. (I won’t shop on EBay anymore, but that’s a story for another day. :))

    I ordered my AppleCare package over the weekend, it shipped last Monday and I received it yesterday. To signup you just logon to your Apple.com account and register your AppleCare according to the instructions in the box. It took only 5 minutes, if that. Obviously, if you prefer you could activate it over the phone instead, but I thought the online route would be faster.
