Dan: Did you get your SHIPPED email yet?
I got my warranty today through ST. I found a promo code and got $40 off the 3 yr policy. $129.00 for 3 yrs that covers all... including drops and spills. If they cannot fix it in 5 days after they receive item, you get your $829 back. I still got the Apple Care to cover any technical issues, because if i remember right from calling about a tech issue with my iphone, you only have 90 days of free phone support. With the Apple Care that goes to 2 yrs. Like the idea of being able to call with a tech issue and not have to pay for it.
Promo code is PICKEM good until 3/31/10
30% off up to $40.00
Do a search on ST and you will find that they have quite a few complaints. Tipically after market warranties are not worth it.
thank you for the info on square trade
I just checked out Square Trade at the BBB. They have an A+ rating with them. Here are a couple of links you can check out.

I was a little hesitant at first, but I think I will try out their warranty for my iPhone and iPad. I'm not worried about the quality of Apple's products, but I do worry that I will drop them sooner or later.
Question - how do you already have your warranty? I called today and was told I couldn't buy a warranty until I had physical possession of the iPad.

I called ST after i purchased the warranty and they told me to call when i got the ipad and they would adjust the purchase date for the warranty. Also you can fax them a copy of the invoice so it's all there for you incase you need to make use of the warranty. Really, Really love Square Trade!
BTW.... You can also cancel a warranty and they will refund you the pro-rated difference.
I just went to the site and checked it out, looks pretty good. No battery though...
