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.

The claims process is painless - call 866 374 9939 6am to 10pm PST 365 days a year

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.

Hassle-Free Warranty

SquareTrade has designed the warranty with your needs in mind. They make it easy for you to:

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Year Protection Plan for Kindle Paperwhite 6 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase
My Kindle Paperwhite doesn't arrive until just before Christmas but I have had an original keyboard Kindle for 18 months. The 3 year protection plan is amazing. I had to ring Amazon on 12th October to say that my Kindle wasn't working correctly as I had accidently dropped it and the plastic casing was cracked. I was immediately told that a new Kindle would arrive the next day, which it did.

Amazing service and email support. I always do the 'feedback' on the person who I have spoken to, as very courteous patient 'guys and gals' on the other end of the phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faultless, fast, courteous service. 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase
My gorgeous Paperwhite was stolen from my table on a train this Sunday. I reported it to the police on Monday evening and had a crime number by 8pm on Monday.

After calling the warranty support line my stolen kindle was instantly deactivated so the pesky thieves can't benefit from their dishonesty.

I was told at 8pm on Monday that my replacement Paperwhite would be with me by Thursday but it was actually delivered on Wednesday, which is especially impressive given that new Paperwhite orders on the website have an estimated 6 week delivery date.

Really full of nothing but praise for the fast, courteous, professional service I received. The warranty may well be quite pricey, but for that kind of peace of mind, it's well worth it. Plus the fact that it will boost your Kindle's resale value should you ever need to upgrade.

I for one will be supplementing any future Kindle purchases with this excellent cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 29 Nov. 2012

The product seems to be just what I am looking for. I have checked out quite a few other companies whose product is either not as good but they are charging the same premium. Or if the same product they are charging a higher premium.

5.0 out of 5 stars So please I could have cover 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I had the original keyboard kindle- and it fell of a shelf - I was mortified - what was I going to do without my kindle.

I was looking at the new paperwhite - and my husband did surprise me with a new one the next day - and I ordered the cover as I was not going to be without a kindle again - I read every single day and would not be without one - the cover was the best thing that I could have brought.

I have even recommended it to two colleagues at work and they have purchased the cover as well - would definitely advise you to get it with your kindle purchase even if it is just for piece of mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars A 'fingers crossed' purchase 5 Aug. 2013
By Asphodelia TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Kindles are actually a lot more fragile than we are led to believe, and they are not immune from technical faults, so insurance like this makes sense. The fact that this SquareTrade policy covers for theft as well is a major bonus, because it just wouldn't be worth claiming on your home or travel insurance for something of relatively small value.

I'd actually bought this for my old Kindle Keyboard but when the Kindle finally died, I forgot to claim on it and bought a new one. I shan't be doing that again .....

EDIT:

Well, turns out my warranty for the old Kindle Keyboard was still valid. I rang SquareTrade, and in a nutshell, a very helpful customer service assistant organised for a replacement Kindle (a 'Kindle Touch' model as the Keyboard has been discontinued) to be sent out tomorrow. I could have opted for sending back the Paperwhite and cancelling the new insurance but I actually wanted a Paperwhite - so now I will get a Kindle Touch for my other half. Not bad at all, and the warranty on that will still run until next year. So far the service really does seem excellent. Will update this again once I receive the replacement Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not valid if purchased outside UK 5 Dec. 2012
It would appear from the documents that if you're not resident it the UK, then you are not covered by this policy - going from other reviews it sounds very good, and something I would have taken out if I was going to covered as a resident in the Republic of Ireland. Shame. I think this is something that should be highlighted at the time of purchase or not recommended for those customers with addresses outside of the UK.
