Ok, you want more deals of the month? Here you go.

Well I could just stop at one…but the blogger in me says to “keep typing!”

So we’re lowering our price on another popular repair for the iPad with Retina glass replacement service.  This is also known as the 4th generation iPad (it’s a full-sized iPad, not a mini) and we receive these by the truckload from schools around the country.

Now’s the time to grab a special on this repair with no coupon needed!

I mentioned it in my last blog that this is a leap year.  So February gets an extra day of fun in it; I like that because it extends the month a bit and makes things easier on the business (this special runs until 2/29/16!).  It’s also a fun day that I’ve only seen 10 of in my life so far; 10 leap years.  Yikes.  I have a good friend that was born on leap year so we will be celebrating with her soon; she turns 40 years old, but is only 10 in leap years.  She’s such a youngster.

Take care, and send us an email if you have any questions about our services.

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.

concept of attracting money

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

Mission Repair in Lenexa – sign mockup.

Hello there electronics lovers-

You may have seen my post yesterday about our newest location that we are opening to attract more customers from the Lenexa, Overland Park and surrounding Shawnee areas in Kansas.

So Melanie is mocking up our new sign, and we are going to be installing something to this effect:

Monument1

Yes, this is just a Photoshop mockup, but we’re going to occupy the entire lower monument sign on this totem. Of course, Kopps decorating center has been in this parking lot for about 80 years 😉 Our new space is perfect for the location, and completely accessible from either 95th street or 87th street right off the highway depending on which direction you arrive from.

I’ll be over at the new location for the rest of the day…and if my Internet is up I’ll blog from the open space and share some pictures!

Have yourself a great morning.

Mission Repair Opening in Lenexa, Kansas – Coming Soon!

Hello there blog readers-

If you’ve been following our blog, you know that we’re talking about our newest Indianapolis location a lot. In fact, we’re heading to Indianapolis Thursday night to have a final meeting (hopefully) with our new landlord out there!

There’s some more exciting news around the Kansas City area as well, and it’s that we’re moving to an amazing retail location just off of I35 in Lenexa.

In fact, there’s a Costco right next door to us. We’ve got a gigantic lit up monument sign that hopefully will be up and installed by the beginning of August.

So check out our locations page to see when we will be having our grand opening. It’s going to tie in nicely with our 1 Millionth Unique Blog Visitor that appears will happen in the next 2 months. We will be celebrating that too in a big way. As of this morning, we are at 966,074 Unique Visitors (check the counter on the right!) and when we hit 1 million we will memorialize it in a big way.

Stay tuned…and if you’ve got a truck we might need some help moving a few items next weekend. I’ll buy the pizza 😉

Thanks for reading, Ryan

The storm has passed. And a coupon!

Hello there storm watchers!

If you’re in the Kansas City area (or at least in the Olathe/Lenexa/Overland Park area), you know that we just had a gnarly storm pass through that knocked out some power, moved some patio furniture around and caused some panic amongst us locals for a bit.

Skies are clear and the storms have passed!

Skies are clear and the storms have passed!

It’s amazing how we get riled up so quickly- just before the storm hit not only did I get an alert on my phone, but 3 different text messages from 3 different people warning me about it. I do appreciate the “heads up” when it comes to anything that can cause me to be in danger, I’m not so worried about that. However I have seen, in multiple instances, that when the weather “authorities” start to sound panicked, the rest of us tend to follow along. It’s worse when there’s snow out…

Now you can hear it from me, the weather “authority” for this morning…it’s OK to go outside now!

The storms have passed and customers are starting to arrive in normal numbers at our stores here in Olathe and in Mission Kansas. Our Colorado store never had any issue of course. It’s just been rockin’ like normal – they’re thinking “what storm?!?” like the rest of the country 😉

If you do get our and visit either our Olathe or Mission stores today, don’t for get to PRINT OUT YOUR COUPON for savings today, tomorrow and Friday.

Talk to you soon! Ryan
