5.0 out of 5 stars Great product but don't purchase on Amazon, June 26, 2010
By 
This review is from: SquareTrade 3-Year MP3 Accident Protection Plan ($250-300) (Electronics)
I give Square Trade extended warranties a resounding five stars.....HOWEVER - you can save lots of money by going directly to their website and getting your warranty there. You can get the same 3 year extended warranty with accident protection for new items, but there are always coupons floating out on the 'net (google square trade coupons)...which can save you between 20-40%. I was able to get this item directly from Square Trade for $38 and change for an IPod Touch screen. Amazon charges $[...] which is the normal price, but you cannot use the 20-40% off coupons on here. Save a few bucks - buy your item from Amazon, and then go to [...] and buy your extended warranty separately.

Thanks sooo much! Followed your advice, went directly to square trade website, got a coupon code for 30% off for my new iPod Touch 4G, and saved enough to buy 16 MP3 downloads or several apps at iTunes.

Divine,

Thanks for the tip--but be sure to read the fine print--I am about to buy an ipod touch, and you are correct--the warranty on Square Trade was about $38, however, it does not cover accidental drops, spills, and other 'user-caused' breakages. This warranty listed on amazon, for $54.99 includes "ADH", and if you add it from the square trade site, the price comes to $54.99 as well.

Just looking out for a fellow consumer!

I agree with M. however, by buying directly from Square Trade, I got a coupon code for 20% off an addition warranty. Since I need to buy 2 ipods for Christmas (2 kids) I can save on the 2nd one.

if you buy the warranty from amazon, you can call squaretrade (877-WARRANTY) and have them adjust the price based on your coupon/code/promo and they will refund you the money.

Yes, but there is still a coupon box right under where you checked for ADH! That is what the reviewer above was talking about. I searched for coupons and got $19 off the ADH 54.99 price!

This is a quote right from their website: "Drop it? Spill on it? Run over it? No worries. We cover accidents caused by you and people you know." So the fine print directly contradicts this? http://www.squaretrade.com/mp3-warranty
