From what I'm reading there, Mastercard would not fully replace AppleCare+
The key part is: "The benefit duplicates the terms of the original manufacturers warranty" which for Apple, without AppleCare+, does not cover accidental damage.
Yep I know. Only in my case MasterCard Extended Warranty will come in advantage. Since I study in Qatar, and only come to the US in the summer holiday, if my phone ever breaks here I can send it to one of the Apple "Stupid" Authorized centers and MasterCard will pay the repair fees.
I call them stupid, because I have no idea how Apple authorized them or gave them permission to touch their devices when these centers got no idea about the device and how to repair it.
