PHONES AND PCS are quite an investment
these days. Wouldn’t it be smart to find a way
to protect yours?
Costco offers new protection plans for
these essential electronics purchased in the
warehouses or online at Costco.com through
Square Trade, the same company behind the
HDTV protection plan that has been available
for Costco members since August 2011.
The idea is simple: Square Trade provides
protection from common problems such as
drops and spills that can happen on the go
with these portable gadgets—along with
mechanical failures. Here’s a look.
For cellphones, the plan offers two years
of protection against accidental damage
(including drops and spills) from the date you
purchase your plan. That means that along
with covering accidents, the plan also provides
an additional year of coverage for mechanical
and electrical failures after the manufacturer’s
one-year warranty expires. The price: $99.99.
cent covered, no matter how it quits working.
The three-year plan complements and
extends by a year the two-year extended warranty that comes through the manufacturer and
through Costco Concierge, Costco’s tech-sup-port service. Free two-way shipping is provided,
and your PC will be repaired or replaced within
five business days after it’s received.
The price for the PC protection plan
is $69.99 for computers that cost less than
$500, and $99.99 for computers $500 or more.
You can find out more about protection
plans for your cellphone, PC and HDTV in
your local warehouse or online at Costco.com;
