What does my SquareTrade warranty cover?

The SquareTrade warranty covers mechanical or electrical failures that occur during normal use. You get 100% parts and labor coverage with zero deductibles. SquareTrade warranties also cover certain issues that most manufacturers do not, such as failures caused by power surges. Drops, spills, and other accidents are covered if you purchase the Accidental Protection Plan (APP) which is included in the extended coverage warranty for certain items. APP is only available on portable electronic items only such as laptops, tablets, cellphones, and MP3 players; a $50 deductible does apply to accidental damage claims on cell phones. All other items with APP are not subject to deductibles.The warranty does not cover pre-existing conditions or issues that occur in the first 60 days after purchasing your item. SquareTrade warranties also do not cover loss, theft, abuse, negligence, or intentional damage.

Does my SquareTrade warranty replace my manufacturer's warranty?
Because your SquareTrade warranty begins the date you receive your purchase, it may overlap with the one-year limited manufacturer's warranty that is included with most of the products we offer. However, SquareTrade is your single point of contact for all of your warranty needs. If you have any issues with your purchase that require warranty use, please contact SquareTrade.

What makes a SquareTrade warranty unique?

The SquareTrade warranty has some unique features that other extended warranties don't:

  • You deal exclusively with SquareTrade if you need to make a claim, once any manufacturer's warranty has expired. No calling a third party to file your claim.
  • There are no deductibles for repairs at any point in your warranty term, with the exception of accidental damage claims on cell phones only.
  • SquareTrade offers a unique 5 Day Service Guarantee. They will complete your repair or reimbursement within 5 business days of receiving your item. If not, you can ask for a refund of the warranty purchase price, and they will still continue your coverage and complete the repairs.
  • At time of claim, SquareTrade will give you a pre-paid shipping label. For high value items like laptops, cameras and GPS, they will also give you a free shipping box to keep your item safe. Larger items like 40" and larger televisions and major appliances may get free in-home service.
  • Additional coverage beyond what the manufacturer's limited warranty coverage is offered. Accident Protection Plans can be purchased for many items such as laptops, cameras, cell phones, and MP3 players as part of our extended warranty option.
