    Is AppleCare Worth It?

    My wife got an email from Apple today, offering to extend her 90 day warranty for a full year, for $78. Is it worth it? Does this cover damage is she drops it, like I did my iPad1 today?

    Well there are better care plans than apple care. Normalyy you purchase those when buying the device. There are some that cover any damage to the device fully._

    Privately acquired insurance can nearly always be a zillion times more effective, flexible and cheaper than official warranties

    Use Squaretrade, it's MUCH better!

    My mother got the Extended warranty from BestBuy for like $100 on her iPad2.
    She dropped it and shattered the screen, went to best buy and in about 10 minutes she was walking out the door with a replacement iPad2.

    The nice thing with BestBuy warranty over AppleCare is that apple will replace with a refurbished iPad that they have there and BesBuy will just open a new iPad and replace yours with the new one. Also if you want to get a different model, they will put the original price you payed for the iPad onto a GiftCard that you can use to get something else.
