Service plan term: 3 YearsService plan covered value: £150-£175
After shelling out close to £200 on a new Xbox console, spending an extra £36 to fully cover the console for 3 years, in case of accidents or the dreaded Red Ring of Death (RROD), was a no-brainer. Seeing how they cover a wide range of products, I'm actually a little annoyed I purchased my DSLR last year from another site, and so missed out on this cover.

Customer service: I accidentally sent the wrong Amazon invoice to get attached to my SquareTrade account, and phoned up to replace it with the proper one. Not only was the agent extremely helpful, he also stayed on the line with me until he could verify that the new invoice had arrived. This was completely unnecessary from his perspective, so full marks from me on going the extra mile.

I did a fair amount of investigating, to see other people's experiences, and there are plenty of reviews out there (ReviewCentre.com and the main SquareTrade page here on Amazon.co.uk which has over 300 reviews) where people have made claims without issue.

Needless to say, from other positive reviews and my own experience, I have no hesitation in recommending SquareTrade for peace-of-mind coverage of your electronics.

I bought this 3 year accidental warranty and a 3DSXL from Amazon at the same time for my youngest. The console broke on the hinge 2 years in - this does seem to be a weak point as it happened to a previous 3DS which fortunately I also had bought a square trade warranty for.

Previous 3DS and square trade warranty (both bought on Amazon) claim some years ago: I was given an Amazon voucher code for the full amount, presumably in the same way that some of the positive reviewers have stated. However this no longer happens.

Nov 2015 claim for 3DSXL square trade warranty (both bought on Amazon July 2013):
Although the warranty states that you get the purchase price to replace new (£140 in my case), I was offered £90 into my bank account. When I objected, after some emails and phone calls, I was given another £30 and sent a link by email to a dodgy-looking shopping site where one was available for £120.

I doubt I'm alone in liking the security of shopping on Amazon, but square trade will no longer cover you to replace new on Amazon. I've given the warranty 2 and a half stars, as I did still get £120 eventually rather than the full £140 back, although with a lot of hassle I don't want to go through again.

Please bear this in mind if you thought buying both device and warranty meant you'd be able to replace new on Amazon no quibbles.

I've bought a new 3DSXL through Amazon, but not a Square Trade Warranty, never again.

I wish Amazon did their own extended warranties - or handled them through Amazon - the way they make sure the Kindle warranties are handled is brilliant.

A positive experience. Didn't dream I would need it, and wondered if £40 was being wasted but as it turns out, it was worth every penny. I received a 3DS as a gift and about 17months later my daughter 'flooded' it with water!! Just one phone call to Square Trade and 2 subsequent emails later in the space of about a week I received funds in the form of a code for Amazon to purchase a 3DS XL as mine was unrepairable. Have purchased another warranty for the new one too. Recommended.

Never got to use the insurance, and I would think the 3 years have been completed. Always provided a peace of mind, therefore I can have no complaints. Nor do I see a viable reason to not award five stars.

I use this company for my Xbox 360 as it has broken down a few times and had to end up getting a replacement and although I haven't used the company yet it is a great company for piece of mind. The details where delivered quick and effectively and it was simple and easy to set up. Very Pleased.

I have 2 young boys who love there gadgets but are somewhat accident prone. I have had to utilise my square trade warranty twice in the past and the service is excellent with little or no fuss involved. The price is very competitive and I wish I had invested in this type of warranty for some of my earlier purchases that have now beenscrapped due to accidental damage and become unuseable.

I bought my games console from Tesco .. never knew they had warranty's before until the assistant advised me to call their warranty helpline which i did. Got link sent via email to purchase this warranty and the price is brilliant value compared to anywhere else. I don't think i will ever shop anywhere different now for my warranties.

Ultimate peace of mind for an essential bit of kit for my son. He's an autism sufferer and the thought of having to wrangle with a home insurance company over an accident then put £250 down as excess for a £350 console didn't feel like much in the way of commitment to ensuring my lad doesn't suffer in case of an accident. These guys are true to their words...anything happens to your console and g=it gets replaced sharpish, no additional cost and very little stress for my lad. Have had to claim previously and had no bother whatsoever.
