John Lewis offers iPad Air with free three year warranty

Luke Johnson



UK retailer John Lewis is sharing the Christmas cheer, announcing that it is to offer the new Apple iPad Air with a free three year warranty.

Although Apple’s electronic devices only come with a 12 month guarantee as standard, John Lewis has announced that it will offer pre-Christmas shoppers an added incentive, pairing the Cupertino-company’s latest tablet offering with a free three year warranty.

Bringing extra peace of mind to consumers, the three year iPad Air guarantee is one step up from John Lewis’ usual two year guarantee provided with all electronic devices it sells.

The free three year guarantee iPad Air offer is available on all iterations and specifications of the tablet and is being offered to both in-store and online shoppers until December 24.

Earlier this month John Lewis also confirmed that it would be price match Apple’s tablets in the run up to Christmas, a move that has already seen the iPad Mini 2 come down £30 in price.

In a recent statement, Ed Connolly, John Lewis’ Electricals and Home Technology Buying Direct stated: “We are committed to offering our customers the best prices on the high street with market leading guarantees included at no extra cost.”

He added: “Sales of tablets were up 152 per cent in the first half of 2013 and this Christmas we predict we will sell one tablet every 15 seconds.”

Apple's electronic devices come with a two year (minimum) statutory warranty, same as all consumer goods. Please stop pushing the 12 month myth. Apple themselves were heavily fined for selling their own 24 month iCare (or whatever they call it) package on the back of implying to customers that the warranty only lasted 12 months.

Check your facts before you write anything next time... all Apple products sold in UK come with 12 months limited warranty...

A quote from http://store.apple.com/uk/buy-...

'iPad also comes with 90 days of complimentary telephone technical support and a one-year limited warranty from Apple. To learn more about how Apple will service your iPad, click here.'

"iPad *also* comes with 90 days..."
Never mind that you didn't read the preceding paragraph, to which the word "also" refers, but why are you so rude?

Having purchased the new Apple iPad air in December from John Lewis. I now find that the free 3 year warranty has no paperwork. No point of contact, The representatives don't know why there isn't a written warranty for the customer. Upshot - I was told only the Company have the details. Apple are amazed. Spend nearly £500.00 and not given a warranty on paper, just to be told the Company has the paperwork. What does it cover? Amazing lack of aftersales service.
