Default Aftermarket Warranty

I neglected to purchase a Squaretrade warranty when I got the tablet from Amazon a little over a month ago. I went to their site and there doesn't seem to be anything against purchasing one now. If you are unlocking it might be worth it to get. It's only $55 for parts/labor and lasts for 2 years. Its another $45 for accidental damage.

Also, you typically have buyer purchase protection through your credit card, so you might want to check that out. They usually just extend the warranty which, if voided due to modding might not actually work, but they're not Asus so......

Visa: http://usa.visa.com/personal/visa-si...ty-manager.jsp
Mastercard: http://www.mastercard.us/card-benefits.html
Discover: https://www.discover.com/credit-card...-warranty.html

As we continue working on Custom Roms, etc. I just thought I would share some options.

Once I check my credit card I might get the SquareTrade one and no, I don't work there :P

FYI, unless you have a coupon code, It seemed to be quite a bit cheaper to buy the warranty with damage protection thru amazon than purchasing the same coverage directly from square trade. I did this and had a little trouble registering everything and confirming the coverage because the table had been purchased separately and about a month earlier. But a call to square trade got it straightened out and as far as I can tell, I have full coverage for 2 years now.

Unfortunately I missed the boat when purchasing the tablet on Amazon though.

You can get a $30 discount code from Squaretrade by signing up to an email list on their Facebook page.
The emails are sent out weekly, usally on Tuesday. The code gives you $30 off that day and $20 off the following week.

You should be able to buy the Squaretrade warranty through Amazon anytime, it's just a regular item found by a search.

I have square trade on my TF700 and my Nexus 7.

I also have the NegriCare plan for my Galaxy S III which is just like square trade but also covers lost and stolen phones

Definitely go with Squaretrade. I get Squaretrade coverage on all of my electronic devices, especially mobile devices. I once broke an iPad and they repaired and returned it within a week. The nice thing is that if you sell your device, you can cancel and get your money back, prorated based on the length of use. This is why I always get the coverage, since you have nothing to lose. I believe you have to get the coverage within 30 days of purchase.
