It’s been an amazing month so far at Mission Repair, and both of our locations are working at 110% to keep up with the demand; and typically February is the slowest month of the year for us!

iPad Mini 4 Repairs coming soon!

Hello there,

We’ve got a long list of repairs at Mission Repair, and we strive to add new services as new products are released.  Very soon, the iPad Mini 4 Repairs will hit our service lineup.

We’ve had a few requests for this service already; however I’d like to make you aware that these screens are “fused” unlike most of the other iPad screens that we are currently repairing…therefore the price for repair will be higher than it’s older counterparts.  This can make the decision for some people to NOT BUY the iPad Mini 4;

Additionally, we get asked all the time: “Is it a good idea to spend the extra $100 for AppleCare+ if you’re going to be spending $600 dollars anyway on one of these new iPads?”  What’s another $100 at that point?  Well, it’s a lot…and if you break the screen even under AppleCare+ you’ll pay Apple another deductible to Apple as well to have it repaired.

It’s clear in this industry that Apple is making a move to make their devices less economically repairable…so as consumers we need to be aware of these things before we make purchases.  At this point, it’s a tough call…does a customer pay the extra $100 for “insurance” from Apple?  What if it’s never used?  You got it, you’d just lose that $100. 

I personally have stopped buying all kinds of different “extended service plans” if I know where to get something repaired or can do it myself.  Chances are you’ll never need it.  If you do, you’ll have to pay for it at that point…but if you don’t, you pay nothing.

It’s how and why Mission Repair is in business.  We are here for those customers that are out-of-warranty, don’t have AppleCare+, or don’t want to pay Apple more deductibles.  We have our business anniversary in April of this year and will be moving into our 9th year of business, it must be working for some of you!

Take care, Ryan

In case you missed our past Super Bowl commercials:

Hello there!  There’s a lot of hype coming up to Super Bowl 50.  It’s right around the corner and that’s all ESPN is talking about right now.

4 teams remain in what might prove to be a fantastic match up on the big day…however this weekend may be an even better entertaining football weekend in itself.  The last two teams in each division will face off and the winner of each game heads to the 2016 Super Bowl 50 extravaganza.  I’m really excited to see who has the best team after all.

In fact, did you know that Mission Repair has advertised in a few Super Bowls at halftime as well?  The commercials of the Super Bowl are always talked about, and we have been in the half-time show for a few years and our commercials have been seen by millions.  You might remember this two part commercial from 2013.

and Part two:

Our commercials page has received a lot of attention over the years for our creative and “shocking” commercials that won the hearts of millions.  Of course, we had our critics.  One thing that I’ve learned is that you can’t please everyone, and the only way to stay our of the cross-hairs is not run commercials at all.  The votes were overwhelmingly positive in our favor, but we will let time tell on whether or not you’ll see us in Super Bowl 50.  Will you be watching?

I know that I will be there, eating chips an hot wings and rooting on my favorite team for sure…we are down to 4 teams to battle it out and I’m getting excited!

Take care, Ryan

 

 

A good deed on the way to Colorado.

Hello friends,

It’s Sunday night and we’re sitting in our hotel room here in Lakewood, Colorado…yes, we are getting ready for the big reveal of our new Lakewood Mission Repair that’s opening one week from tomorrow!

On the way in to town this morning, we were driving along highway 70 from Kansas and about 45 minutes from Denver, I spotted a duffel bag on the side of the road. It was just sitting there, so I decided to stop, grab it, and see if I could figure out how to get it back to it’s owner. I pulled over, backed up a bit when the traffic was clear and Lennie who was riding “shotgun” jumped out and grabbed the bag.

Once inside, we found the person’s iPhone, which was passcode locked. Kudos for him for keeping his device safe from someone that might want to do some harm, but it didn’t help our mission today. It was time to dig a little deeper.

There was a clue in the bag along with all of his belongings. There was a flight log book, and a certificate of completion on a training flight that was from the “Front Range Airport” in Denver…signed and dated just yesterday.

So we took a detour and gambled that there would be someone at the airport that could help.

As it turned out, this bag came from part of a group of teenagers that were there yesterday, and they had the contact information of the group leader. All was well…and we handed the bag and all of it’s contents over the airport official who promised to return the bag to it’s owner.

It felt like we did the right thing even though it took us off of our initial path. I just thought “What if this was mine?” I’d want it back too, and I can only imagine how this thing ended up on the highway.

All said and done, this good deed lead us to a great day here in Lakewood and we’re ready ahead of schedule for our Grand Opening next week. We can head back home tomorrow knowing that we’re ready to go.

How about one more good deed from us today? Sounds good to me. I’ll issue a 15% off coupon that is good today through tomorrow January 26th, 2015 at midnight. Just use coupon “gooddeed” to receive your 15% off on any repair that we offer on MissionRepair.com Remember that it expires tomorrow night so act fast, but remember that it cannot be used in conjunction with any other coupon of discount, and it’s also not valid on an “Got Repair” discount benefit repairs.

I’ll be back from the new location tomorrow with a few blogs, a great press release, and a few more pictures to satisfy your curiosity. Talk to you soon!
