SCIC: Independence Day Doesn’t Have to Mean Independence from Your Devices – or Your Money

June 28, 2017 – Big Fourth of July plans? Don’t let a broken phone take the boom out of your fireworks. To get the most enjoyment out of your holiday, you should take precautions to protect your devices. Since accidents and flukes are bound to happen, it’s important to have a backup plan.

We all know someone who has encountered one of these familiar scenarios:

  • It’s a fun day at the beach, until a huge wave gets the best of you and knocks your phone into the water.
  • In all the hustle and bustle of a get-together with friends and family, someone knocks your camera to the floor and cracks the screen.
  • While running back and forth between the grill and the kitchen, you lose track of your tablet – and by the time you find it, it’s as cooked as the burgers after baking in the hot summer sun.

So, for peace of mind, the Service Contract Industry Council recommends a service contract (sometimes called an extended warranty). For these scenarios, service contracts with accidental damage from handling coverage are the perfect way to assure that your device can get repaired affordably when one of these unforeseen accidents arise.

Independence Day is filled with outdoor activities where it’s easy to lose track of your phone, but devices can also go bad from their own defects. Service contracts protect against these unfortunate circumstances, too, by ensuring speedy repair or replacement of your device. Many service contracts also offer technical assistance, so technical woes can be the least of your concerns this holiday weekend.

A fun-filled Fourth wouldn’t be complete without the memories to look back on, so it’s especially important to have a working device at hand. By taking advantage of a service contract for your devices, you can make sure you have memories to share with everyone!
