Anybody get a Squaretrade warranty for a mini with the AP discount?
You can buy a ST warranty for the MSRP value of the product and when submitting the receipt, you can let them know that you did buy it as a discounted price which you wouldn't get again if you had to replace it.
If you want a 30% off discount coupon, which SquareTrade emails three of them to all of its customers every Tuesdays and Fridays (they were 35% off for a while before the end of last year until this week, when they went back to 30% off), I'll be happy to send one if you send me a PM.
You can also look on Amazon for purchasing a SquareTrade warranty, which sometimes you can get an extra year of for certain products (AV and TVs) for not much more money. You don't have to buy the product on Amazon for the warranty purchase on Amazon, though it works best if your Amazon account email would be the same email address you'd use for your SquareTrade login.
