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 3 Year Drops & Spills Warranty:

Sq.Trade really stepped up to help me when I broke my vidcam (nosedive onto concrete patio). In just a couple hours they'd sent me a prepaid shipping label to their repair facility and when their facility couldn't repair thee camera they sent it on to Panasonic. that took 6 weeks and Sq Trade paid for $750 rental so I could get some jobs done. And they were extremely communicative re: the status of my repair.

Thankfully, I haven't had to use this policy ( on a camera light ) but when I broke my Panasonic ag-ux90 camera, Square Trade really stepped up to help me. I thought only Apple gave that kind of support, but SQ.Trad was great.

Comments about 3 Year Drops & Spills Warranty:

I got square trade protection for my new camera and I've always had great service from them in the past. Hopefully I won't need to use it, but I know if I have to, they have me covered. They fixed my previous camera's LCD screen quickly and easily.

Comments about 2 Year Protection Plan:

I's a two year plan that I wish I had not purchased. The Wolverine Data F2d Mighty 7-In-1 Film To Digital Converter worked so well I did not need it. I processed over 1000 slides in about 2.5 days or 7 hours total. I have it now but will probably never need it

a SquareTrade protection plan is always a great buy. Unfortunately, I bought it for a product I'll likely never take off the shelf again. A real lemon.
