Express Replacement Service Terms and Conditions

The following terms and conditions will apply to Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) provided in conjunction with any services offered under Apple's Limited Warranty. This service is additional to the service options available at no charge under Apple’s warranty and does not otherwise affect your statutory rights.

i. If you want to minimize the amount of time without your Apple product and If Apple determines that your product is eligible for ERS, and you choose to order ERS by providing to Apple your credit card details, Apple will ship to your designated location a replacement product. You will return your product so that Apple receives it within ten (10) days from the date Apple ships the replacement product (the “Return Period”). You must return the original product in the package that contained the replacement product in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Apple will retain the original product and you will retain the replacement product.

ii. For the ERS, Apple will charge your credit card the ERS Charge, described at the Product Service FAQ webpages described below (“Service FAQ”) at the time the replacement product ships. The ERS Charge is waived for customers of AppleCare service plans, when applicable. In addition, at the time the replacement product ships, Apple will effect an authorization against your credit card equal to the replacement value of a new product (“Replacement Value”), described at the Service FAQ. This authorization will be maintained by Apple and will be applied against any damage to the original product that is not covered by Apple’s warranty or the applicable AppleCare service plan, or loss of the original product or other payments due Apple. Repairs are considered Out-of-Warranty when:

iii. If Apple receives the original product within the Return Period in a condition that is: (i) eligible for warranty service, the authorization on your credit card will expire; (ii) ineligible for warranty service but eligible for Out-of-Warranty Service, your credit card will be charged the Out-of-Warranty Fee, described at the Service FAQ; (iii) ineligible for warranty service and ineligible for Out-of-Warranty Service, your credit card will be charged the Replacement Value. An original product that is inoperable due to unauthorized modifications or has failed due to catastrophic damage, such as the device separating into multiple pieces, are examples of a product that is ineligible for Out-of-Warranty Service.

iv. If the original product is returned to Apple within the Return Period, the remainder of the Replacement Value will be credited back to your credit card after confirmation that all other applicable charges have been paid. If Apple does not receive the original product within the Return Period, your credit card will be charged the Replacement Value. All fees and charges described herein exclude all applicable taxes.
