    Someone told me the the samsung area in best buy is "like an apple store"
    If something goes wrong with my Note 3 that I could take it there for service / replacements / warranty issues etc.
    Any truth to this?
    I can't really find any info on best buy site

    I have one of those samsung BB stores.

    And no, you can't take your phone/device there for service/replacement/warranty.

    it's basically just a big Samsung kiosk.

    I bought my Note 3 at Best Buy. I bought protection for it too (cancelled the Verizon protection plan) but he said I can go to any Best Buy if I have problems. I'm guessing he was talking about Geek Squad, not the Samsung Experience area.

    How much do you pay a month? What is the deductible?

    I paid $200 for a 2 yr plan at best buy until I found out that the deductible was raised to $150. At which point I went back in and canceled. I think the monthly fee is $10 if you don't pay it all up front.

    I then checked with my home owners insurance because of what someone said in this forum. I found out that my insurance actually covers my phone with no deductible. Wow I would not have guessed that. So check it out its worth a shot.

    I'm not a home owner, but I should see if my renters insurance covers my phone. Probably won't. But we'll see.

    If you file a claim, does it count as a claim against the house?

    That's a good question. I don't know how it will affect my premiums if I make a claim. I will check it out.

    That's the big thing. My parents made a claim years back and their premium for the next few years went up about 50%. It is one thing for house damage, but if you are getting $700 worth and your insurance goes up a few hundred a year for a few years , then it isn't worth it

    My Bestbuy Samsung reps work for a third party, in which case they aren't authorized to repair.

    Yes it does. I wouldn't file something small like a phone on homeowners insurance.
