Damage

Introducing ME.Complete core protection plan

You love your Mac.  When you first open up that box, and touch your new Mac, you think to yourself, “I’m going to take such good care of you”. It’s exciting!  You’ve taken all the precautions needed, you’ve even added the recommended AppleCare. Each morning you sit in front of your Mac with your coffee next to it, but not so close that you might bump into it and spill coffee on your new precious Mac.  But then your idiot roommate, wonderful spouse, or first-born child bumps into your coffee and OOPS!

At MacExperience we recommend AppleCare with every new Mac. It extends your one-year hardware warranty to three years, and you get access to Apple’s technical phone support. While AppleCare covers manufacturer’s defects and hardware issues, it does not cover accidental damage.

That’s why we’re introducing ME.Complete for only $99

Accidental damages can be expensive. Depending on the model and the amount of damage you may spend $300 - $900+ on a repair.  Liquid damage can be even more devastating, costing you an arm and a leg. Even with AppleCare, accidental damage like drops and liquid spills are not covered.

With ME.Complete, all you pay is a $250 service fee in the case that your Mac breaks as a result of accidental damage. Our Apple Authorized Service Center will get your computer up and running as quickly as possible.

With ME.Complete, your Mac is completely covered and protected. AppleCare will make sure you get free repairs for any hardware issues and ME.Complete covers you in case of accidental damage. ME.Complete also includes a $75 credit towards replacing a consumed battery, ensuring your computer will always be up and running 100%.

One last thing to remember

ME.Complete is a great way to keep you covered when __________  happens, but your data on your computer is not covered. What are you doing to save your data in the case of a hard drive failure? It's wise to have a back up, and every Mac includes a program called Time Machine that backs your Mac to an external hard drive.  All you need is an external hard drive or Time Capsule to get going.

Where Do Most iPhone Accidents Occur in the Home?

Toilet isolatedWhat would you say is the most dangerous place in your home when it comes to protecting your iPhone? Where is the damage most likely to occur?We have heard horror stories of iPhones unceremoniously being dropped into toilets. It is true, according to Squaretrade, 9% of iPhone owners have dropped their phone into the toilet. But yet the bathroom only accounts for 16% of damages to the iPhones in the home.

Maybe the driveway has this dubious honor? Holding your phone while you fumble with your keys or try and put the kids in their car seats or the dreaded “I just left my phone on top of my car as a drove away” moment is dangerous, but these only accounts of 10% of iPhone accidents in the home.

In fact, the most common place for iPhone accidents is in the kitchen. This fact makes sense when you consider you have hot stoves, wet sinks, food and slippery hands all while you’re trying to read a recipe, answer texts or take pictures of your dinner. 21% of accidents occur in the kitchen.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the most common areas for damages:

  • Kitchen 21%
  • Living Room 18%
  • Bathroom 16%
  • Driveway 10%
  • Bedroom 8%

The Case for Protecting Your iPhone Unless you’re the person who never makes a mistake, you’ll want a really good iPhone case. We carry a wide range of cases ranging from the slim and sexy to the “you can spike this like a football after chugging a beer and it won’t even phase it” kinds. What’s most important is that you get a case that absorbs shock, protects against spills and keeps dust from getting inside your phone.

Come in to one of our four Indiana retail locations and ask our awesome service reps what case is the best for you. Don’t become one of these statistics with an avoidable accident. We all drop our phone from time to time, but whether or not it survives the fall depends on whether you come visit a MacExperience first.
