    There is definitely sales tax on AppleCare+ in Canada. 5% GST plus whatever your PST is, unless you live in Alberta and don't have a provincial sales tax.

    I personally went with it. Anything can happen. $130 up front and the most I pay is $100 for any issue for the next two years is worth it for me. I break my screen once in the first year without apple care and I'm paying 130 up front. Break my screen the following year and I'm paying 300 I believe. There's 430 in expenses when I could have laid 330. Personally I've never broken my phone. But being assured I'm protected if it does happen is worth it for me. In addition to that I rock a case and a glass protector. This is almost a 900 device. Why not protect it?

    AT&T has $6 a month insurance. Reason being is my shorthand lazy math tells me that it's cheaper to replace the iPhone on insurance than AppleCare.

    No AppleCare on my handheld devices. I only really need AppleCare on my iMac which it has the 3 year one and it has saved my behind so many times it's actually funny.

    I have a family member that works for AT&T and he says that he is the one that looks at the phone that are returned when the contract is over. He says "there will be a huge scam when all these people return their iPhone 6s's with cracked screens and missing accessories". He claims you need insurance incase the phone gets any damage when you want to take the phone in at the end of the contract and trade it in for another.
    My BS detector was going off, but I can see this happening again. If anyone remembers when the 5th gen iPod Touch came out. Back in that time customers would go to the Apple Store to ask a question about their device. The Genius would have a flashlight and shine it into the headphone jack and look for a color. The problem with this around the time when the 5th gen iPod was released was Apple was telling everyone there was water damage on their devices no matter what they saw. Apple was sued and had to pay back money to customers who went to stores during this time.

    Check with your credit card company to see if they offer insurance.

    Apple Care Plus is a must. I am told in HK that we just pay US $100 forms new phone regardless of the problem. We can get to do this 2 times in a year.

    I am using a very slim air jacket to protect my iPhone 6s Plus. Want to use the phone without that much bulk and weight. I may even remove the case in a month and use the phone without any case. That is the joy of Apple Care Plus.

    I dropped my brand new 6s (only 1 day old) in a pool already and it's shot. I'm kicking myself for not buying Apple Care+

    At first, I wanted to get Apple Care +. Then I realized that an Otterbox with a tempered glass screen protector was a LOT cheaper. And it does the job =)

    I bought it on my 6 plus, never had to use it since bending was covered however I think that it is totally worth having and I picked it up for my 6s Plus.

    If you are changing it for the new model next year then don't buy Apple Care.

    If you have a year time to buy AppleCare then wait for 7-8 month for new iPhone rumours and then decide whether you want to change it or retain your current iPhone and buy AppleCare

    I've heard that renters insurance can cover things like your phone or computer for cheaper than apple care, maybe look into that.

    I destroyed my 6 plus by mistake and if I didn't have AppleCare + I would have paid over $400 for a replacement. I paid $79 and received a new device. Totally worth it for me. And I still have one incident just in case.
