Product Description

SquareTrade US Kindle Product Page - Otter

2 Years of Accident Coverage for your Kindle

The vast majority of Kindle failures occur because of accidents. With the 2-Year Warranty + Accident Protection for Kindle, you are protected starting from day one if breaks occur because of an accident, for example:

  • Your child knocks it off a table
  • The dog chews it
  • You drop it in water
  • It gets stepped on

In addition to accidents, the 2-Year Warranty also covers you from all electrical and mechanical breakdown for an extra 1 year after the standard one year manufacturer warranty ends. This includes battery replacement if the maximum charge falls below one-half of the original potential.

Your 2-Year Warranty Coverage Includes:

  • 3 replacements over the 2 year term, with no deductibles or fees
  • Hassle-Free 2-day shipping both ways

Timeline for warranty coverage for Mechanical and Electrical problems, and for Accidental Breakage

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Only extended Warranties I purchase December 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am a long time Kindle owner and I have purchased the SquareTrade Warranty for each Kindle I have owned. Though I have only needed to use it once, it was worth having. My Kindle developed screen black out problems one month before the warranty ran out. The replacement process went very smoothly with no arguments or real problems. I did originally receive a refurbished replacement that did not work at all however, a new one was overnighted immediately with no hassles at all. I am upgrading now to the new Paperwhite and have once again ordered this warranty. Based on my past experience, I consider it well worth the cost even if I never have to use it.

1.0 out of 5 stars start date? February 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
Well, the start date is the date of purchase. However, the shipping will not be for 6 - 8 weeks. Not really fair that the start date will start long before I even receive the device. Not well thought out here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't Yet Be Issued!! December 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
This protection Plan should not be in effect until I receive the Kindle. The Kindle will not be issued or received by me until January 16 or later due to it being on back order. What good does it do me the full month and a couple of days when I don't have one to cover?

5.0 out of 5 stars Square trade warranty company treated me right November 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
Square trade warranty company treated me right.

Amazon was out of Kindle White 3G when I ordered. I bought the warranty at the same time. By the time the Kindle White arrived a month had passed. I called Square trade, they started the coverage from the date I received it not the date I bought it. They have great customer support.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-buy. February 18, 2014
By m.m.
My parents bought me the Kindle Paperwhite 3G along with the 2 year warranty for Christmas. Though the purchase was under my father's name, it was transferred over to me without any problems. My paperwhite got a scratch on it (deep enough that the light underneath shone through--my fault for not sticking it in the case), and I called up today. Customer service was amazing--friendly, helpful, quick and painless. My new Kindle will be here this Thursday. I HIGHLY recommend getting the warranty. Also, I didn't know until today that you get 3 replacements--I thought it was just a one-off. Again, highly recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not worth it February 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
I got some writing in the sky. And I had to ask for it twice. They said that it was mailed but I never received anything. Finally I got some sort of e-mail. And again they said it was in the mail but never got it. Customer service is lacking.

Fantastic plan. My kindle broke on a Wednesday and I received a new one on Friday after a quick phone call. Staff was knowledgeable and courteous. I am a firm believer in buying the extended warranty.
