    Anyone going to try the new Samsung premium care with the s8? Ive had insurance on my phones for the s7e and s6e the past couple of years, but Im really interested in the deductible on samsungs plan. If its $100 for the s8 plus thats a lot better than the $200 deductible with ascurion I have through verizon.

    What is Samsung Premium Care and why should Galaxy S8 owners be glad it exists?

    I'll take the free month with my order but I'll likely continue with my current insurance which is $8/month and $50 deductible.

    I also chose the free month when I purchased on Samsung.com. It's the same price I pay a month for total protection from Verizon so I figured what the heck, why not.

    Their price looks good but they give no coverage details on what exactly is covered/not and insurance terms. Pay up front for one year is a very good price if they deliver on claims.

    have you read the entire list of exclusions and terms of coverage? I'd say this coverage sucks from what I read.

    Nope. I don't go by icons, I go by a detailed coverage document that lists all the terms, conditions and exclusions. Otherwise you're buying vapor.

    Lol.

    I guess the 2 policies I have them are pure vapor.

    I would like too, always liked having apple care. But the Samsung care is a bit expensive. I guess I will go with square trade.

    You're being obtuse. Regardless, thanks for the link. I'd look at the end of page 3 and then into page 4. They exclude theft from an "unattended" vehicle. Are you supposed to hire armed guards 24/7? Corrosion is also excluded...so much for water damage. Says nothing about fire that I saw. Excludes cosmetic damage and dishonest acts, whatever that is. Theft maybe?

    I think I'll keep looking.

    Yes, my security detail watches my car when I'm not in it. Yours doesn't?

    Obviously you didn't look through the whole thing because there is a glossary of terms at the end that explains exactly the things you have failed to comprehend.

    Nobody told you to sign up. Good luck.

    just checked into this and it seems like a legit deal. Im mainly looking for a smaller deductible on cracked screens...I cracked my s7edge screen twice this year and the ssss4200 deductible along with $9/month policy is getting to be a bit pricey. Now I dont hope to have to make any claims in my future but a 6.2" screen screams accidental cracks and I dont want to feel like I have to baby my phone or be afraid all the time of breaking the screen. Im totally down for a $50 deductible. Thanks for the tip man

    I'm thinking of getting this even though I pay for Jump which has insurance.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Jump has a $175 deductible. This insurance is about $75 a year with a $50 deductible so it's a savings of $50.... If I crack the screen.

    Can Jump be had without insurance or is all that built into the program?

    also might be tempted if they offered a flat fee for a year of coverage

    Just be careful if you use Jump to actually upgrade. When turning in your phone T-Mobile(as will all carriers with their upgrade programs) will want the IMEI of the phone they have in the system.

    So if you used a third party insurance and they swapped your phone out for whatever reason, you will run into issues when trying to upgrade bc the IMEI will be different.

    All you have to do in this case is call TMobile to update the IMEI in the system.

    Good point. Didn't think about that situation.

    Dishonest acts would probably be considered deliberately damaging your device to file a claim.

    I usually go with squaretrade @ $89 paid up front for the year with a $99 deductible and no loss or theft coverage.

    This place is $96 if you do the payment and $78 if you pay in full with a $50 deductible plus it covers loss or theft. I may have to give it a try, reading the policy documents now and need to look around for some reviews.

    Thanks for the tip Tour!!

    No, i haven't filed a claim so I can't help with that. In fact, I haven't done any damage to a cell phone in over 5 years that would warrant filling a claim. But it only takes once.

    Dishonest acts: So don't get into a fight with your wife/husband and throw the phone. It's not covered...LOL
