Product Description

Product Description

3 years of Accident & Theft Cover for your Kindle

The vast majority of Kindle failures occurs because of accidents. With the 3-Year Warranty + Accident Protection & Theft Cover for Kindle, you are protected from day one if breaks occur because, for example:

  • It is knocked off a table
  • You drop it in water
  • It is stolen
  • It is chewed, smashed, or trodden on

In addition to accidents and theft, the 3-Year Warranty also covers you against all electrical and mechanical breakdowns after the manufacturer’s warranty ends. This includes battery replacement if the maximum charge falls below one-half of the original potential.

Your 3-Year Warranty Coverage Includes:

  • Up to 3 Kindle replacements, with no excess or fees
  • Hassle-Free Express delivery both ways

Easy Claims Filing

The claim process is painless - start by calling 020 3356 6205, 7am to 9pm GMT, 7 days a week.

Advanced Exchange

Broken Devices: SquareTrade will ship a replacement Kindle to you (same or newer model depending on availability). You will also receive a pre-paid shipping label to send back the damaged Kindle to the depot. A valid credit card is required on file to process an advanced exchange. If you don't return the damaged Kindle within 30 days, you will be charged the price of the replacement device.

Stolen Devices: If your device is stolen, you should notify the police and obtain a police crime reference number. When you call to file your claim, we will first verify this crime reference number, and then we will ship the replacement device.

Cancel anytime Cancel Anytime: Within 90 days you may cancel for a full refund if you haven't claimed on your warranty. After that, you are reimbursed the unused part of your warranty - e.g., if you cancel your 3-year warranty after 18 months with no claims, you'll get 50% of your money back.
Transfer at No CostTransfer at No Cost: When your Kindle changes ownership, so can your warranty.

Know Your Options

Before getting a SquareTrade Warranty for your Kindle, you should know that you may be covered in other ways. Here's a look at some of the options you have:

Coverage Plan
Home Contents Insurance
Every Home Contents Insurance policy differs, so be sure to check your policy to see if it offers portable electronics cover (not all do). Some policies may also have an Excess that is close to or higher than the value of your Kindle.
Sale of Goods Act
It does not cover accidents – which are the majority of Kindle failures. For more information, on your consumer rights click here

5.0 out of 5 stars Speedy e-delivery, warranty is transferable 15 Oct. 2011
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
I'm very impressed indeed with the speed at which this warranty came - my certificate of insurance arrived via e-mail delivery within hours of placing the order and a print copy was delivered by post within a few days. The ordering process does require a recent Kindle purchase via Amazon or for you to input the serial number of a Kindle registered to your account. I was a bit worried about this, as I was buying the warranty to go with the Kindle I've bought my brother for Christmas, so I didn't really want to set things up in my name. I needn't have worried: the warranty is transferable to the name/address of a gift recipient - all you have to do is contact SquareTrade and let them know. They were very helpful in dealing with my request.

The terms of the warranty are easy to understand and set out in plain English, and the level of coverage given is superb: theft and accidental damage are included, up to a maximum of 3 replacement Kindles during the lifespan of the policy.

Of course, there are certain requirements before replacement Kindles can be issued in the event of damage/theft: a damaged Kindle must be sent away for assessment (a replacement will be sent, but your card details are required to ensure that you aren't attempting any monkey business - since the replacement is sent before you're expected to return the damaged Kindle), and a crime reference number is required in the event of theft. Over all, a very good policy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast, personal service 30 Nov. 2011
On 21 November I bought a Kindle on my Amazon account, but my husband is keeping it to give me for Christmas. Two days later I received an email about the Square Trade warranty. I tried to buy it, but couldn't as my Kindle won't be registered until Christmas Day. As the warranty has to be taken out within 30 days of buying the Kindle, this posed a problem. I sent an email to Amazon's helpline and received a phone call within 2 hours. I was helped to buy the warranty and I received the policy very quickly by email. I then phoned the number on this email to ask if the warranty could be changed to begin from 25 December and this has been done.

Of course, the real proof of the value of the warranty will be when I make a claim. But so far I can't fault the service I have received.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new Kindle 30 Nov. 2011
I have just had a Kindle for my birthday - which was superb, but was worried about it getting stolen or broken. A friend mentioned the 2-year SquareTrade Warranty which she had recently subscribed to and I looked into purchasing the same for myself. It was so easy to buy this product on line and I now have peace of mind and can use my Kindle wherever I wish, knowing it is fully protected against theft and accidental damage. Many thanks for making it so easy to procure. Salisbury Val.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle E Ink 6 Dec. 2011
I purchased my Kindle from Amazon in October 2011. Last night one of my children sat / fell on the kindle and the now the screen is completely broken. I was extremely disappointed but then I remembered that Id purchased a Square Trade warranty. I called their office and within 2 minutes a FREE replacement was organized, and all I have to do is send the broken one back to them in a prepaid envelope. Thats it! For portable items such as the Kindle or iPad I would highly recommend the warranty as it is just a fraction of the cost of a single repair or single replacement. The simplest and best warranty replacement that Ive ever experienced.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfair Amazon!! 30 Dec. 2011
By SarahB
My parents bought me a Kindle as a Christmas present, and bought it early to ensure they received it in time, when I went to buy myself an additional warranty the day after Boxing Day I was told that because its over thirty days old I couldn't. I doubt I am the only person in this situation, I think it could have been made clearer that this was the case to my parents or Amazon should extend the purchase period for the warranty for presents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Square Trade Extended Warranty for Kindle 29 Dec. 2011
By Pat G
I received my Kindle for Christmas and I am very pleased with it. Your welcome e.mail suggested the 2 year extended warranty and I thought this was very reasonable at £21.99.
Having read the customer reviews (which I always find very useful as they are independent of the suppliers and manufacturers, I thought the policy would be a good idea. I am amazed at the speed with which you processed my request. Obviously I cannot comment on your service should anything happen to my Kindle. But I will comment at the time,should I need to use your service.

Thank you again, and lets hope I don't need to claim on this policy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant service 25 Jan. 2013
I don't usually bother with insurance but is I'm accident prone I was convinced I'd drop my Kindle in the sand. 18 months and all was OK til I woke up to find the screen had lines all over it. I was bereft. I can't handle life without a book and I had a train journey that day and was away for the weekend the next day. Disaster. 15 hours after this discovery my new Kindle was delivered to my home. I call that service. Meanwhile I discovered I could read my book on my laptop and when I upgrade my phone in a few months need to make sure I can use the Kindle app. All is calm again.
