Product Description

From the Manufacturer

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

5.0 out of 5 stars square trade kindle warranty November 14, 2011
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
wow. I usually don't write reviews because I'm indifferent, but I can't stay quiet after that. My Kindle got smashed in an earthquake and I put off calling in the claim because I dreaded haggling with someone I can't understand and making them do what the warranty said they would. I worried for nothing. They were kind, didn't argue with me, and I was on the phone for less than 10 minutes. Best of all, I will have a replacement Kindle in 2 days. 2 DAYS!!!! No haggling, no misunderstanding, no long explanations. They just said they were sorry it happened and they are sending me a new one! I will always use squaretrade for my future warranties, and I suggest everyone else does too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding service of Square Trade Insurance & Amazon November 4, 2011
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
When my husband damaged his kindle by dropping it on the floor when he fell asleep, we ordered a new kindle to replace it not knowing how long it would take to get the damaged kindle fixed or replaced. We were going to be leaving on a trip in three days and wanted to take it with us. We ordered a 2 day delivery on the new kindle. To our surprise, when we spoke to Square Trade, they offered quick delivery. The replacement kindle arrived in the morning before we left and the new kindle arrived in the afternoon of the same day. We were very pleased with both Square Trade and Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Kindle yet - but real experience with SquareTrade October 30, 2011
While I haven't yet received my Kindle, I can tell you that I will spend the extra money to purchase an extended warranty from SquareTrade. The reason is simple. SquareTrade works. I have purchased extended warranties through this company for a number of items because it's an inexpensive way to guarantee your electronics will be "saved" if anything untoward might happen. My real experience is this: I purchased a washing machine rated #1. I did a lot of research and thought I had the cream of the crop. I purchased a SquareTrade warranty just as a matter of course upon purchasing a new electronics item (and the new washing machines ARE electronic).

Lo and behold, my washing machine crapped out three - count 'em, THREE - times within 18 months with the exact same issue.

I didn't even bother with the manufacturer. I called SquareTrade and their super customer service people set me up with a local repair shop. When the repair shop failed to call me and I couldn't get in touch with their office by phone, I called SquareTrade and asked them what could possibly be going on? I didn't have my washer, didn't have a repair person, and here I was stuck going to the commercial laundromat, and that was NOT the way I wanted to spend my time off from work.

SquareTrade sent me a FULL product refund and included a FULL REFUND FOR THE COST OF THE WARRANTY for my trouble.

I love SquareTrade. I recommend them to everyone looking into extended warranties. I will be a SquareTrade customer for a very, very long time. SquareTrade warranties are less expensive than manufacturers' extended warranties, are useful for refurbished items, for electronics purchased through ebay, and THE WARRANTIES WORK.

I'm a SquareTrade repeat customer because I've received good service on a 'keyboard' Kindle that had to be replaced 15 months after purchase. The replacement was quick and I did not have to spend hours on the phone with the customer service. Since then, I've added a TV and a Blu player and I am now buying coverage for our new Kindles.

This warranty extends the default warranty coverage to 2 years. Translation: if the Kindle came with a one-year warranty, buying it will give you TWO years of total warranty coverage, NOT three. The 'accident' gives you some extra coverage that Amazon's doesn't cover.

IF, after paying for coverage and reading the terms you don't agree, you have 60 DAYS to cancel and get your money back. This is a good thing because it should be enough time to read the agreement and decide whether to keep the coverage.

As far as warranties go, this one is okay. Very much in line with what most electronics warranties provide these days. Going through the legalese, this is what gets covered and how.

- The amount of coverage is limited to the amount you paid to purchase the product (minus shipping and taxes).
- You are covered for operational and accidental damage but not covered if you abuse your Kindle.
- They will fix and replace your broken Kindle and your replacement may be a refurbished model or a newer model or you may receive 'your money back' if they can't do either.
- If your Kindle breaks three times you get a replacement and coverage ends (the no-lemon clause).
- There can be only ONE replacement under the plan. Do NOT confuse 'claims' with actual replacements.
- If you purchase coverage at the same time you bought your Kindle, accident coverage begins immediately.

Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
I was so disappointed that I lost my newly bought (1 book old) kindle to a huge wave that splashed on the north shore beach in oahu, hawaii. As i was still in 30 days period of buying kindle, i was eligible to signup for this protection plan and am so glad i did so. Now I have a replacement coming in couple of days. Yaay!!
