National Stress MonthApr 16, 2019

April is National Stress Month. How have you been managing springtime stress? We have a tip that we think will help you!

While we’re not stress counselors, we do like to think that we know a thing or two about reducing stress. How? Well, Upsie works to reduce people’s stress every day.

According to the American Institute of Stress, 62% of the United States is stressed about money. That is a huge portion of the country. Additionally, “Fifty-seven percent of Americans don’t have enough cash to cover a $500 unexpected expense…” (CBS News).

One of the most common expenses is a broken device. How many times have you cracked a phone screen, broken a laptop or had a washer unexpectedly break? I can say that I’ve had all three happen to me, and I’m sure I’m not alone. This is where Upsie comes in.

Upsie makes protecting a device easy and affordable. Plan prices are often 70% less compared to competitors, such as SquareTrade and Best Buy, with similar coverage plans. Also, the deductibles on Upsie plans are almost always less expensive. For example, a two year Upsie warranty for a new Samsung Galaxy S10e costs $89.99 with a $75 deductible. A SquareTrade warranty for two years, on the same phone, costs $215.76 with a $149 deductible.

The most common phone repair, fixing a cracked screen, costs $277, according to Consumer Reports. With Upsie, that’s a savings of $164.99! In addition, Upsie will cover an unlimited number of claims up to the purchase value of the device. In this example, a Samsung Galaxy S10e 256 GB has an MSRP value of $849.99. If we repair your device for $277, then you would have $572.99 remaining in claims.

Furthermore, Upsie makes the claims process easy. The 24/7/365 claims line is answered by real people who are eager to help you get your devices fixed as quickly as possible. There is no runaround; simply call the number provided in your account and someone will answer. How’s that for a stress-free process?

In the end, don’t let a broken device stress you out. Get Upsie protection for all of your new devices.
