Applecare for iPhone £55 (with 20% quidco £44) at O2 store

Found 10th Jun 2011
Was looking for a cheap deal to buy applecare for my iphone4 which will run out of warranty soon and 02 store seems to have the cheapest deal. CEX is (£32) but no online stock and only two places currently have stock instore.

Potential 20% quidco takes price down to £44.

RRP from apple is £61, so even at £55 its cheaper than apple.

Quote 'Facebook' in-store to get 10% off, too.

Probably better to eBay your old phone and buy a new one. The £55 would probably cover the upgrade cost normally and then you have a new phone with 12 months warranty.

I bought mine from CEX a little while back for £25. Always worth popping in to check if your local has one. It was wrapped and brand new too!

You must be mad to pay £55

The deal works, got it for £44 with quidco.

CEX are not authorised to sell them and sometimes can be an hassle to register (and who knows if it'll work if the time comes)

I've used Apple's service and it's excellent, I know I can just take my faulty phone in and go out with a new one then and there.

I can see why this is cold. You can just buy it from ebay usa for £30. I got mine for £25. Registers the same and works perfectly.

unless you are getting a full boxed product which is still sealed, then you have likely to have gotten a fake code which will then get deactivated by apple after a little while.

Could buy a new mobile with money left over for a film and a pizza and still have half a crown left over...Those were the days laddie!

Also keep in mind, in fact you have 2 years guarantee from the date of purchase. 1 year typically from the retailer and the 2nd year dictated by EU Consumer law. In essence, you're only paying for one years care for £55 or less from CEX/Ebay etc.

Will this mean they will repair your iphone if it develops a fault outside of warranty?

It extends the warranty for another year (but have to register it before the original warranty runs out).
If you take the phone into an Apple store they'll confirm the fault and give you a new (well, a refeb, that looks as good as new) on the spot.

Good Deal to me, £55(£44) to get a new iPhone if anything goes wrong sounds good.

Plus it adds to resale value. too bad my 3gs is out of warranty. I would of used this now

Noted, however if your careful you can get a sealed boxed product for around £30. I got mine from someone who bought it from bestbuy USA with a receipt but never used it for £25. But you do point out an important issue.

I just looked into this and it seems such a grey area and sounds like you will have a jump through a lot of hoops to get any retailers to comply with that. Also note, its is a directive and not a law, hence its not really been adopted.

good price from a reputable outlet, i got 2 from o2 just before christmas and worth every penny!!

A customer of Tesco's won such a case, he returned a faulty technika tv set after 16 months of use under EU consumer law. Any further cases have a much higher chance of winning quoting the Tesco case and alike. Not so much of a grey area, rather fighting your corner.

And while you're fighting those battles and arguments, I just go into an Apple Store and get my phone replaced in under half an hour.

Well worth £44 in my view.

You think Apple are going to give a dam about what Tesco do? and during all the time you are without your phone what are you going to use? Apple in my opinion have the best customer service of any company and like Jmarcelino says in under 30 mins you walk out with a working phone or sell it on ebay or on here with 1 yrs applecare and it will fetch the extra £44 easily.

I totally agree, we all know apple are extremely uptight with their policies and don't care about anyone else's. But they do have amazing customer service. I think the £44 is worth the convenience of being able to walk into an apple store and get a straight replacement on the spot. rather than have to file endless complaints with apple and probably having to take them to court to get it resolved.

Voted hot. Ordered this yesterday as my iPhone 4 is almost out of warranty - I don't intend to upgrade to the '4S' or w/e it is so gives me that extra peace of mind in case it buggers up. Was dispatched very quickly and should be here tomoz. Thumbs up for O2
