I'm going overseas in April and was checking my card benefits. Most of my cards suck for bennies except for Discover.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Discover extends warranties for 1 year when the item is purchased with your Discover card.
Seeing that my Amazon account is tied to my Discover... this works great.

That was 2 days ago.
Now I see that some cards extend the warranty past the manufacturers warranty... by one year. So if you buy AppleCare and use one of these cards then you would get 4 years. I'm not sure if Discover does this... but I'm going to check.

It appears you would get 4 years if you purchased AppleCare.

Yeah.. I guess I wasn't clear in the previous post.
"Now I see that some cards extend the warranty past the manufacturers warranty... by one year. So if you buy AppleCare and use one of these cards then you would get 4 years."


That's in the link.

I saw it on my Discover and just found out it's on my Chase card too.

That wasn't sarcasm/// I typed something else then deleted it but didn't get the first sentence.. which now looks snarky. Sry.
