According to a recent story run by the 9to5Mac publication, Costco, the second largest retailer in the United States and the seventh largest retailer in the world, Costco is set to begin selling AppleCare+ for iPhone and iPad in its wireless kiosks as of today.
The Wireless Kiosk will begin selling AppleCare+ warranties on iPhones and connected/embedded iPads. This offer does not apply to non-embedded iPads sold on Majors sales floor. Back in 2010, Costco had stopped selling iPods and iTunes Store gift cards back in 2010, but in June it announced a new deal with Apple to sell iPhones and iPads.
An internal memo has been sent to employees at Costco stores indicating that the company will begin offerring AppleCare+ on iPhones and iPads sold through its wireless kiosks. Here are some more details:
The notice details the process for selling the extended warranties and states that the offer only applies to “connected/embedded iPads” sold at the kiosk, not those sold on the sales floor.
The wholesaler only recently started carrying Apple’s mobile products again earlier this year after a multi-year spat that resulted in the decision to remove them from Costco shelves. The devices are available both through the company’s website and in-store through its specialized mobile sales kiosks.
