Thanks for reading/helping me out. I'm stuck.
So the story goes:
I had a black macbook (original price: $1500). I bought it Dec. 07, and bought an extended warranty. My cat spilled water on it, it stopped charging the battery (still works on A/C), I sent it in to apple. The warranty didn't cover the repair for $755. I don't have $755, so I put it up on craigslist as broken for parts for $250. I it sold it to a guy last night, and mentioned that I might be able to transfer the warranty.
Here's where the dilemma comes in: This morning while looking for how to transfer the warranty, I found out that I could cancel the warranty and recover the prorated amount value. I (naively?) sent the buyer an email explaining this.
BUT, here's the thing, I know the buyer has already opened the case, voiding the warranty, so there's no point in transferring it to him.
So what do I do?
My thoughts are:
(A) I can keep the money for myself, which makes sense as I HORRIBLY undervalued the computer I sold, by a little over $200.
(B) I can give the buyer the money as the value of the warranty I already promised him.
(C) I can try to negotiate with him, splitting the money, or giving him some portion, or even just taking back the computer and giving him (some) money back.
