Extending Your Warranty for Free
Many credit cards offer added protection for devices that you’ve bought with those pieces of magic plastic. For example, American Express Extended Warranty automatically doubles the warranty protection for most devices — including tablets — for as much as one year. There are similar programs offered by some issuers of MasterCard or Visa cards. Some credit cards even offer free coverage for theft or accidental damage during the first few weeks or months of ownership. What’s in your wallet?
Contact customer service for any credit cards you own to see if this is included, and find out exactly the terms of coverage.
