If I buy the $40 warranty, should I buy the cover, too? It seems that both provide protection, and I need only one. The warranty is actually better deal, since the cover wouldn't cover liquid damage. Any thoughts?

I am replacing a Kindle keyboard whose screen has failed - it is 2.6 months out of warranty, unfortunately.

The cover helps protect the Kindle from being damaged. The warranty replaces a broken Kindle.

Would you rather prevent the damage in the first place or be without your Kindle when it breaks and waiting on the replacement then having to redownload your content and get back to the way it was on your old one.

I have both on my Paperwhite. I purchased the cover and a 3 year extended warranty from Squaretrade.

Most extended warranties which cover accidental handling typically cover only one event, so let's say you sit on your Kindle the first time and have it replaced, the next time you spill your coffee on it, your accidental handling warranty will no longer apply.

Only you can determine what is going to work best for you. If it were me, I would definitely have a good quality cover because it can help to prevent a number potential screen damage issues.

I'd want a cover, either way. I don't want to pick lint off of my screen.

If you think that you may need the extended warrantee I would suggest buying both. The cover helps to prevent accidental damage and the warrantee will cover anything that happens, accident or
malfunction. In my opinion the cover also just makes the Kindle look better but that is purely personal.

Your post reminds me though of the "Friends" episode where Joey loses his health insurance and then laments that now he has to worry about getting hit by a truck. :-)
