Why should I get a SquareTrade Protection Plan?

Because it’s always the thing you can’t go a day without that ends up broken—and at the worst possible time. That’s why there’s SquareTrade. If something breaks, SquareTrade is there to make it good again, fast. They’ll have your item repaired or replaced in no time. And if it can’t be fixed or replaced, they’ll refund its replacement cost up to the coverage amount.

How do I purchase a SquareTrade Protection Plan?

It’s easy. If your item is eligible, you’ll have the option of adding a SquareTrade Protection Plan to your purchase directly from the item description page. You can also add a protection plan for eligible items in the cart and in step 3 of checkout.

Protection plans are valid on orders shipped to a US destination.

How long does SquareTrade coverage last?

Coverage lasts 2 to 3 years from date of item purchase and is indicated in the protection plan description.

When does coverage start?

Coverage begins 31 days after the item purchase date. If there’s an issue with your item and it’s still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty or the AfterSchool.com 365-day return policy, you’ll be directed to the manufacturer or AfterSchool.com first. If the manufacturer either doesn’t cover or denies coverage for normal-use failures, or if you are outside of the AfterSchool.com 365-day retun policy, SquareTrade will still cover you.

How much is covered?

You’re covered for your item’s replacement cost up to the coverage amount. Once that amount has been paid out, your protection plan will be considered fulfilled. If you’d like to protect your replacement item, you’ll need to purchase a new protection plan.
