Too expensive and pointless!,
This review is from: 2-Year Protection Plan Plus for Kindle (6" Display, Wi-Fi, Latest Generation), U.K. customers only (Accessory)
I have just received the email saying that my 30 days is almost up and that I ought to consider this 2 year insurance. No matter what you buy and where, you are always bombarded with a 2 or 4 years insurance policy which apparently is such a bargain you would be a fool to miss it.
If you are like me and I assume that you are seeing as you have purchased a Kindle (or you would not be reding this) you love books. Therefore you love your Kindle. If like me your books are treated with kid gloves, so why is this any different for your Kindle?
As has been mentioned, this insurance is a suggestion that the Kindle may not last too long which means there is a breech in sales law. I have no idea but I would not buy something like my Kindle that has a shelf life that requires just a 2 year insurance. The cost as well, a third of the price of a new Kindle! Surely if you are not careful then don't drink your tea near the Kindle. Don't take it into the bath as you did your books. If there is a potential that you could drop it, well buy the case as this will give it some protection.
Amazon, I have used you for years and will continue to do so but Insurance is for companies that pray on the weak, con you out of loads of money and then hope and pray that the item insured is never damaged. Insurance, Aamzon, is for sharks. Please don't tell me that you are branching off down that slippery slope!

Surely, reading your book in a steamy bathroom is not 'treating it with kid gloves'! (Unless it happens to be a book you're not particularly bothered about, in which case, is it worth bothering to read at all?)
