Apple’s Holiday Return Policy (it’s extra-long)

Apple has modified its return policy for the holidays:

“Items purchased at the Apple Online Store that are received between November 14, 2018 and December 25, 2018, may be returned through January 8, 2019.”

This should make it easier for people giving (and receiving!) Apple products as gifts, as Apple’s standard return window is limited to 14 calendar days.

Here is a link to Apple’s Returns & Refunds web page, a useful read as there are some “terms and conditions.” Note that only items purchased directly from Apple, either online or at an Apple Retail Store, are eligible for being returned to Apple. Resellers such as Amazon (referral link) have their own return policies.

Buy refurbished Macs from the Apple Store and save 20%

Refurbished Mac Store


Apple sells refurbished Macs via their website at this link: Everything on that site comes straight from Apple, with free shipping, and a 1-year warranty (same as new). If something goes wrong you bring it to the Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Center (also same as new). Typical savings: about 20%, though sometimes it’s a little more. I buy all of my Macs refurbished and pocket the savings. You should do it too.

Apple also sells refurbished iPads and iPods at a discount, as well as discontinued items from Apple and other manufacturers. See this link for that.
