Speedy e-delivery, warranty is transferable
on 15 October 2011
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.
