4 Reasons to Buy an Extended Warranty for Your Smartphone

The question about adding on an extended warranty for your smartphone comes up every time you buy one. It’s easy to brush the request off with the thought, “Why would I need to buy an extended warranty?” It’s true that most devices come with a manufacturer’s warranty; however, those run out after a certain period and there are some situations where you’ll be glad to have accidental damage protection.
Some don’t know that you don’t have to opt for the coverage sold to you by the carrier. Upsie offers the lowest prices on the market for smartphone extended warranties. Let’s look at four reasons why you will want the added protection of an Upsie extended warranty for your smartphone.

1. With Upsie You Get More Coverage At a Lower Rate

What happens if you’re walking down the street and someone accidentally knocks the phone out of your hand? What if you accidentally drop it into a fish tank as you’re trying to get a cool overhead shot for Instagram? It’s very unlikely your cell phone manufacturer’s warranty will cover these issues and they rarely cover you if you open the phone and try to fix a problem yourself.
Upsie smartphone subscription warranties fill those gaps by covering accidental drops or spills for only $9.99 per month. They offer protection for phones of any age that cost up to $1899.99 (before tax and discounts). Phones must have no current damage at the time of purchase.
People with expensive phones will not find better prices anywhere for extended warranty coverage. The plan comes with three low deductibles: $0 for cracked screen repairs, $109 for other repairs, and $149 for replacements. You can make two claims per rolling 12 month period.
It’s true that almost all phones come with a manufacturer’s warranty; however, most major carriers limit the scope of coverage to manufacturing faults. They may pay for repairs if the speakers die two days after purchase or if you can’t connect to any WiFi networks, but not if the screen cracks after slipping out of your cell phone holder (you should read through the fine details of your warranty to confirm what is and isn’t covered by your manufacturer’s warranty).

2. Upsie Helps to Ensure You Get Your Money’s Worth From Your Smartphone Purchase

We now live in a world where high-end smartphones exist that cost over $1,400. Hey, we’re not judging. What we’re asking is, when you shell out that much money for what you want, why would you not do everything possible to protect your investment?
Because of rising costs, replacing a smartphone after a year is no longer a workable option for many people, especially if they’ve purchased one of the more expensive varieties. Buying an Upsie extended warranty means you have coverage beyond that of the average smartphone manufacturer warranty. Most of those only last up to a year, and you’re definitely out of luck if you happen to step on your phone, even while under the manufacturer’s warranty period.
Upsie extended warranty coverage plans last for up to 5 years. That’s five years of peace of mind that you won’t be stuck paying for expensive repairs out of pocket. Purchasing an extended warranty plan from Upsie means you recoup your investment quickly without shelling out a lot of extra money.
In fact, the deductible for cracked screen repairs is $0 for a repair that costs up to $250. For other repairs, the deductible costs $109, and for replacements it costs only $149.

3. Upsie’s Warranty Claim Experience is Easy

Trying to get your phone fixed under a manufacturer’s warranty tends to be a taxing process. It seems that there’s always some fine detail that pops up, causing delays in getting your phone repaired or replaced. Upsie does everything possible to streamline the process.
The Upsie team helps you locate a certified repair shop for your phone. You also have the option of sending your smartphone directly to Upsie or going to your favorite local shop for repairs (after approval).
You can make up to two claims per rolling 12 month period. That means you could make up to four claims per calendar year! There are no hidden loopholes or fees. You pay your deductible, file your claim, and Upsie takes care of the issue.
Upsie lets you access your warranty paperwork 24/7 from your online account. That means you don’t have to keep track of your receipt paperwork at home. All you need to do is log into your account whenever you have questions about whether specific damage to your phone falls under Upsie extended warranty coverage.

4. With Upsie You Can Opt For Protection After Your Purchase

Most warranty providers give you a very limited window for purchasing extra protection insurance. If you pass on insurance during your initial purchase, they may not offer you the opportunity to reconsider. Upsie allows you to purchase a smartphone warranty subscription anytime, as long as your phone is not already broken. Your coverage starts from the date you purchased your phone or received it via shipping.

Don’t Leave Your Smartphone Unprotected
