I purchased an expensive drawing monitor on Amazon for dd last night and added the 4-year Square Trade for another $9.

 

Was just wondering what you thought of it if you ever had to use it?

I don't know about the item itself, but I know people who've bought Square Trade insurance and there's never been a complaint. Always got the item replaced in a quick amount of time.

I have had nothing but issues with Squaretrade in the last month. I had it for an Iphone. Their policies are that they won't assign a technician to handle your claim for 48 hours and they only work Monday - Friday. This meant it ended up taking a week each time before they sent a replacement phone out. They also sent me 3 consecutive replacement phones that had terminal hardware issues. They may not be bad for other electronics especially if it isn't in dire need of being replaced or fixed quickly.

Staples actually starting using Square Trade as their extended warranty company a few years ago.

I had a squaretrade warranty on a used MacBook Pro I had bought. About 6-8 months later the video card died. I contacted them, they did some diag with me. Then had me send them the machine and gave me the purchase price of the machine back. Was a great experience for me.
