When does my coverage start?
For new items, your coverage starts on the day you purchased your plan. For some used items, there may be a short waiting period immediately after purchase. If you purchased a plan for a used item, check your plan contract (under “Waiting Period”) to see if one applies.
Plans with Accident Protection
Coverage is the same as a SquareTrade Standard Protection Plan (above), with the addition of accident protection which is covered by SquareTrade from the day you purchased your plan.
Example 3-Year Plan with Accident Protection
Years 2 - 3
Mechanical & Electrical Failures
During the manufacturer’s warranty (typically up to one year, may vary by manufacturer and model), you will be referred to the manufacturer for service if the issue is covered by their warranty.
Coverage is extended by SquareTrade for two extra years.
Accidents Like Drops & Spills
Item is covered by SquareTrade from the date of purchase.
