I bought an "open box" iMac at Best Buy, 2008 model. Best Buy told me I would have the full 1 year manufacturer's warranty. Knowing Best Buy can be shady to make a sale, I called TWO apple stores and they confirmed I would have the manufacturer's warranty and I could also purchase AppleCare on it. Awesome, so I buy it. Well I had to fax in a copy of my receipt to change my date of purchase to update the warranty in their system. No problem, until a week later when I get an email from Apple saying it was rejected because it was an open box/ display model. So I called Apple and talked to their nice rep. It sounded like he understood my problem and told me to resend the receipt, and make a note of the case number on it because he was going to make some notes in the system. Just got the same email today saying it was rejected. I'm going to call Apple again and Best Buy. I'm past the return date, I would not have purchased it if I knew I would not have a warranty on it. I have a feeling Best Buy will just offer their service plan, which I know is junk. I use a Mac every day at work. I can't believe I'm having these problems when I finally have a chance to buy a Mac for myself. Cliffs: Bought "open box" iMac. Best Buy, and TWO apple stores confirm I will have 1 year manufacturers warranty. Warranty update gets rejected by apple twice now.
