The Consumer Technology Association
expected shoppers during the 2020 holiday gifting season to spend $135 billion on electronic tech, a 10 percent increase over 2019. Many online recommendations in the weeks leading up to the holidays items like Apple AirPods, Xboxes, smartphones, PlayStations, robotic vacuum cleaners, noise-canceling headphones, VR headsets, TVs, cameras, smart home devices, turntables… and much more. Those recommendations and the list of electronic gifts that companies like USA Today
suggested are nearly endless.
That’s great because tech is a perfect fit with the extended warranty services Upsie provides that help you protect your newest tech devices. Unlike basic manufacturer warranties that come with new products, Upsie sells extended warranties that cover everything the manufacturer covers, as well as accidental damage from drops, spills, immersion in liquid, and other hazards that can damage your favorite, new device.
You can think of an Upsie extended warranty as a service contract in which Upsie promises to repair or replace your device if it’s damaged.
If It’s Tech, Upsie Protects It
What products does Upsie protect? It’s probably safe to say that if it uses electricity or connects to Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth radio, Upsie covers it. Here’s a general list of tech items Upsie currently protects:
How Upsie Plans Work
It’s easy to protect your product with Upsie, and here’s how these extended warranties work. Notice also that Upsie protects both newly purchased as well as used or refurbished gear you might buy.
1. Purchase Your Warranty
Upsie gives you 60 days after your purchase to get an Upsie warranty; or for smartphones, 120 days; or a full 11 months for new TVs, major appliances, and fitness equipment. Upsie backs its plans with the highly rated protection plan provider, Centricity.
2. Coverage Begins
For plans including accidental damage, coverage begins for most products on day 31 after the warranty purchase date. However, coverage begins on day 1 if you purchase a new smartphone plan on the same day you buy your phone. For the few plans that don’t include accidental damage, coverage begins immediately and overlaps with the manufacturer’s warranty until it expires.
3. Manufacturer Warranty
All new devices must come with at least a 90-day manufacturer warranty. Furthermore, all used or refurbished devices must come with at least a 30-day seller warranty. Upsie plans overlap with the manufacturer’s warranty and take over the coverage after it expires.
4. File a Claim
Call Upsie’s service center 24 x 7 x 365 to make a claim. This number is located under your My Account page. We promise that a live person will answer the phone to help you.
5. Repair Your Device
Upsie offers four types of repair: Local, Ship It In, In-Home Repair, and Replacement. Options for repair vary per device. We’ll help you choose one most convenient for you.
What Does an Upsie Plan Cost?
Upsie is a more affordable warranty option for electronic devices, appliances, fitness equipment, and more. Excellent coverage, but with full transparency, better customer service, and a smaller price tag: Upsie believes in putting the customer first.
In fact, Upsie’s pricing can save you up to 85 percent compared to other extended warranty providers!
For example, here’s a snapshot of Upsie’s pricing for a two-year plan on a $999 Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphone (based on 9/1/2020 pricing).
|Upsie % Savings
|Upsie $ Savings
|Cost of 1 repair
|Cost of 2 repairs
|Cost of 3 repairs
No matter what company sells an extended warranty, the plans always have two cost components. The basic price for the plan appears in the “2-Year Coverage” row. (Note that Upsie also offers three-year plans). Meanwhile, the “Deductible” row shows the amount you’ll pay for each repair.
As you can see, your savings with Upsie are dramatic whether your device needs one repair or several over the life of the contract. Upsie three-year extended warranties save even more and protect your devices for a full 36 months.
