    Default Any accidental coverage for refurbished tablet?

    I was planning on purchasing a warranty from square trade but they informed me that only certain used items receive accidental coverage. I really want a warranty that includes accidental coverage just from my bad experience of dropping electronics. Any suggestions?

    Have you asked Square Trade how fully refurbished items are covered? I wonder if they consider refurbished as better than just plain used, since refurbished implies that the manufacturer did a full inspection and testing of the device before selling it again.

    They said that they cover anything within the tablet that fails, like mechanical issues that aren't accidental. I'm guessing that would be good to have. I was doing the purchase thru the squaretrade website and even linked the eBay ID to the protection plan. And I went thru live chat to find out what was covered and was told that only certain used items would be covered by accidental damage. I did receive a 90 day manufacturer warranty from Samsung for 90 days. I'm just kind of wondering what to do at this point via protection since quickship electronics doesn't offer warranty plans minus the manufacturer plan or squaretrade.

    This sounds pretty promising. I've never heard of them before though. http://www.worthavegroup.com/product/tablet-insurance/

    Not sure if you found a solution yet or not, but I just saw your post. I bought a refurb on Woot a couple months ago, got the SquareTrade warranty that they advertised on there, then realized that there's no accidental damage and handling coverage on refurbs (or stolen/lost) with SquareTrade. So I got a refund from them (they did it really fast, no questions asked) and found Extended Electronic Warranty | Protection Plans | Electronics Insurance | Securranty . I paid $80.99 for a 3 year warranty, WITH ADH, using coupon code SEC10 (which gives you 10% off). You can also pay less for less years, but for the same price as a SquareTrade 2 year for refurbs with no ADH coverage, I went for the 3 years.

    That's a really great deal. That's exactly the type of warranty I'm looking for. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Looks like damage only from what I can tell. Yes? No?

    From what I've seen of alternative plans they're cheaper for sure but don't cover enough for my peace of mind.

    At this point I'm going to stick with Asurion.
