Got a Macbook that is out of warranty? Don’t worry, there are still options for you. No, you don’t have to cry like a baby or play the damsel in distress. You simply can use the options available to you in order to still get a free Macbook repair for your out-of-warranty computer.
Here’s how you can get a free MacBook repair without a warranty:
Lean on your credit card company.
Typically, American Express and other have extended warranties built-in for equipment and purchases. Some will double your current warranty while others extend an additional year of warranty on top of your current one. All you’ll need to do is get a Macbook repair shop to give you a written diagnostic and you will send this along to your credit card for approval. Upon approval, you can get your Macbook fixed and you’ll be reimbursed by your credit card company for the charges. Not bad, right?
Check online if to see if your Macbook issue is a known issue or one that requires recall.
There have been several known issues that Apple has been lenient in supporting. We have seen video issues, screen distortions, and batteries that have been deemed worthy of extended warranty support. Apple support will usually issue when the extended coverage is up until, such as four years since date of purchase or 1-3 years out of the normal warranty. If your Macbook is out of this period, it can’t hurt to still try to bring your Macbook to an Apple store for support.
If you are way out of warranty, then well, beg and grovel.
Seriously, best bet is go to the Apple store, select your mark, and sing your swan song. Explain your situation and maybe throw in a few tears or sad saga and hope your Genius Bar tech has some mercy on you.
