I fell off a rock at a tide pool and my beloved camera and lens flew into the ocean after falling down many rocks. The lens was smashed and the camera looked like a dying robot in a sci-fi film, firing away at about 60 frames per second. They were both dead. I thought my warranty was over but when I called SquareTrade, I still had 3 days left and they immediately sent me a mailing label to ship both back to them. After about a week and being told by Canon that they were irrepairable, SquareTrade bought be a brand new camera and lens through BH since I told them I only buy my gear through BH! I couldn't believe they bought me a brand new kit. I've had several things die or fall into the water and SquareTrade has ALWAYS covered them without question. don't be fooled by cheaper warranties other big companies offer. Read the reviews. They are terrible. SquareTrade has always been my choice for over 15 years and I've never had a complaint!

Today, after more than a month and after multiple phone calls, I received a cheque for the price of my camera (ex. sales tax). I had asked for this for the last weeks, and they refused. Without giving me an ETA for the repair. While it is worth it to get extended warranty on your gear, do NOT go for SquareTrade! They sell nothing but empty promises:

Promise: 2-day service guarantee.
Reality: +1 month service.

Promise: Refund of replacement.
Reality: Yes, but not withing the promised service window.

Promise: Easy Online Management.
Reality: No status updates whatsoever. Not by mail, not online.

Promise: 24/7 Customer Support.
Reality: Extremely long wait times (call-back option can take hours).

Promised: We will send you a shipping box.
Reality: You have to take care of propper packaging.

Tip 1: (from their service desk) have your item repaired at a local camera store and send us the receipt. 

Tip 2: If your repair is overdue ask for your money back as promised! They will not offer it to you, you will have to ask for it!

Comments about 1 Year Protection Plan:

Best protection plan around. When I got in my car accident, my camera was damaged. Square trade promised that if they could not fix camera in set time and not only did the fix it, they refunded the cost of my protection plan but honored it for the next full year! Great plan

I haven't used it yet

Comments about SquareTrade 3 Year Drops & Spills Warranty:

I haven't had any major problems with my Huawei Mate 9 yet, so I haven't used the protection plan so far. Still, a great option for tourists as me that buy technology and wants to be covered in your home country, as the guarantee covers any shippment cost of reparation in case you have to send it to the USA.

Comments about 3 Year Drops & Spills Warranty:

Didn't realize there was a 3 year Square Trade Policy when I brought the 2 year a week earlier, A quick phone call later the switch was made without a hitch for me. Glad I haven't had to test the policy but I have no doubt it will be as reliable as BHphoto always has been and is!

Great Protection

By Golfore

Comments about 3 Year Protection Plan:

I bought this to protect my purchase, hoping to never actually have to use it. I had a square trade policy on my daughter's phone and boy did it come in handy when she cracked her screen. I like the peace of mind knowing that I have the coverage if I have an issue.
