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

As my initial review was written based on my experience with SquareTrade on items other than the Kindle Fire (which had not even been released at that time) I wanted to update with info relating specifically to the Fire warranty service.

I have had to contact Square Trade because of an issue with one of my Kindle Fires and I mistakenly called the usual general warranty claim telephone number on the SquareTrade website. SquareTrade has a designated Kindle Fire specific warranty claim number which is listed on the warranty confirmation email customers receive after purchasing the Fire's warranty. It is 1-866-374-9939. Once I was connected to the right person (this was all in one phone call in less than five minutes) my issue was handled quickly, with no fuss, I did not have to provide any additional information and I had a replacement Kindle in less than 48 hours at no charge to me.

Another reviewer had mentioned concern at the lack of a paper warranty, this does not bother me. I have my email warranty, all of my warranties are available on the SquareTrade site and I no longer have to deal with lost paperwork etc. Even when transferring or cancelling a warranty, the steps are laid out in easy to follow directions on the SquareTrade website.

Someone had mentioned that they were bothered at the lack of Kindle Fires' serial numbers listed on the Warranties. I own three Kindle Fires, one is mine and the other two are my kids. When they are turned on in the top corner they say Helen's Kindle, Helen's 2nd Kindle, Helen's 3rd Kindle, presumably because it's through my account that they are registered.

Square trade warranties are exactly as advertised. After almost two years of abuse on my 2nd Generation Kindle, I finally broke the screen. I am a Soldier and my Kindle goes with me everywhere, Iraq and Afghanistan included. I called Amazon (from Afghanistan!) and was directed to the Kindle warranty department. In less than 5 minutes, I had a new kindle on the way to my house, and a shipping label to return my broken one at no charge. I was very impressed at how easy it was. I just purchased the Kindle fire and didn't hesitate for a second to get the additional warrantly offered by Square Trade. Keep up the great work.

I haven't purchased this warranty yet, because I want to see what people say about their Fires once they start shipping before actually purchasing one.

But, I do have to review the warranty because I see a lot of negative reviews that don't make any sense...

I think this warranty is worth the price at around 22% of the Kindle's price. I've had to make a claim on at least 3 of my square trade warranted items (cell phone, digital camera, dishwasher) in the past. I was mailed a check in less than a week almost two years after purchase on the phone and camera which meant I was able to turn around and purchase a much nicer item since technology changes so fast and prices come down so quickly. They sent someone out to fix my dishwasher immediately and it saved me $150 service call fee for a $40 warranty... and it's still covered for 3 more years.

Square Trade warranties are truly amazing and I would definitely purchase one for anything technology related that is priced $200 or more. Customer service has been fantastic every time I've had to contact them, and just the 3 warranties I've had to make claims on more than pay for all of the other warranties I still have through ST. We never want anything to fail... but lets face it... a lot of tech gadgets do, and often they do about a month after the manufacturers warranty expires. If you have ever had a $300 dollar item die on you and then found out it's basically a paper weight because you can buy a much nicer one for less than it costs to fix it, then you will really thank yourself for buying a warranty.

PLUS the biggest and best thing I've found with ST warranties... you can almost always find a discount on them if you do a quick search for a coupon code before you purchase.

Many consumers do not know this, but many charge card issuers such as Discover, Visa and Master Card have an extended/replacement warranty policy for just about any items manufactured with a USA warranty. This coverage is totally FREE. The only requirements are is that you purchase the item on the specific card that has this coverage AND the entire purchase must be made on the card as one transaction. These card issuers will at least match the original manufactuers warranty exactly as stated by the manufacturer. For example,if the original manufacturers warranty is one year parts and labor, then you will automaticlly receive another year of parts and labor coverage totally free. If the product breaks after the first year, the charge card company will either pay for the repair up to the price of the item OR they will either issue a complete cash refund or a credit on your charge card towards a new purchase. Diferent cards issuers have different refund policies. The only requirement is that you will have to retain proof of purchase such as your monthly charge card bill, and you will have to produce a written copy of the manufacturers original warranty. Not all Discover/ Visa/Master Card/American Express account holders have this extended/replacemnt warranty policy. You must contact the respective corporation that issued the card (NOT the bank that issued the card) and supply them with your account number(s). The representative will inform you as to whether or not you have this extended warranty policy coverage on your card or not. You will also be able to question the representative how to file a claim, what's covered and what's not covered, etc. The numbers for Visa , Master Card, and Discover Card to verify if your card has this policy are 1-800-VISA-911, 1-800-MC-ASSIST and 1-800-DISCOVER.Read more ›
