Ever experienced gadget damage just a few months after purchase of the product? If you have, you know the frustration that comes with the knowledge that you’ve just wasted your money. And if you’re unfortunate, the cost of repair will even exceed the actual cost of the gadget. It’s during these instances when a gadget warranty pays off.
Whenever you shop for any electronic gadget, chances are you’ll get an offer for extra warranty other than the standard offered by the manufacturer. And while you may not want to spend extra money on that, know that there are gadgets that need more warranty. Gadgets that you use to their extreme is one. If you play games on your laptop day and night, you might want a warranty for it. Why? Well, extreme use often equates to early damage. Second are gadgets that you carry with you all the time, such as a camera. If you carry your camera with you in all your travels, using it in varying conditions, damage is also more likely. So, a warranty will give you peace of mind.
Now, how do you find the right company for your warranty? What should you look for?
- Company reputation. Some companies will give you a hard time when you file your claims. Ask feedbacks from other customers to know if the company can be trusted.

- Warranty cost. Compare prices in the market and go for those that will give you more savings. For instance, you can save up to 70% on electronics warranties with SquareTrade. So, shop well.
