Extended Warranty

Provided by Protect Options

At Protect Options, we know that accidents happen during normal usage and that regular use can cause wear and tear on your devices. Our customers are important to us, and we want to provide the best support possible to their purchased products. That’s why we created a set of Terms and Conditions that goes above and beyond the industry standard. The Protect Options Warranty allows you to worry about living your life, while we worry about everyday accidents and wear and tear. No fees, no gimmicks. Just simple Terms and Conditions.

Sound too good to be true? The Protect Options Warranty even protects against accidental drops, spills, and electrical surges, types of accidental damage that standard manufacturers warranties don’t cover. With your Protect Options Warranty, you’re covered against normal everyday use such as mechanical failures, hard drive crash, loose charging ports, RAM failures and more.  The Protect Options Warranty must be purchased within 30 days of the original order date.

Need to file a warranty claim?

Follow these 4 easy steps!

To obtain warranty service, please contact our Customer Service Representatives (“CSR”) by filling out a Claim Form, by email at, or by phone at 1-844-433-8476, Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST, excluding holidays. Our CSRs are very knowledgeable and often can resolve many hardware problems remotely by email or phone, without the need to ship your product to us!

Please be sure to provide (or have available) the following information when contacting our CSRs:

  • Name
  • Daytime Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Product Serial Number
  • Mailing Address (so we can return your product)

Please do not return any product without first obtaining a RMA, as we may not be able to associate it with you and it could be lost or misplaced. If for any reason a product is returned without a valid RMA number, Protect Options will do its best to provide you with service, but cannot be responsible for your product if it is lost or misplaced.

Our CSRs will contact you with shipping instructions. You will be responsible for safe packaging and shipment, and you assume all risk of damage to your product during shipping. Please make sure you insure your product appropriately.


Once your warranty request has been received and processed, you will receive a confirmation email from us and a Protect Options technician will evaluate your product. Please note that we generally provide confirmation within 2-3 business days. However, during periods of peak demand it may take up to 10 business days for us to provide you with a response. Once we have processed your product, repair “turnaround” time averages 5 business days but may take longer depending on your issue. We only provide our customers with the highest quality customer service – sometimes that takes time!
