Iwnat to register for 1 year additional guarantee


Hello,

If you're needing information on how to register for what a lot of stores call the 'Extended Product Protection' or Wally Word calls it the 'Product Care Plan' I believe, there are a few different ways to do it. To save time; you'd need your receipt and if they provided you with any documentation - like a tri-fold brochure explaning the extended coverage options, you'll need that too. In most cases you can register the product with only the receipt of the item.
I would need to know where you purchased the item and at least the brand, make model to tell you exactly how to do it - retailers run the extended coverage warranty in different ways. But usually it goes like this:
- product comes w/a one year warrant and they offer an additional year at the counter while you're checking it out for a fee, for example
- (or) a company is offering to extend the warrant on an item for one year after manufacturer's warranty either at checkout on their online store or possibly through an email offer - in either case - they'd request that you either fill it out online - or print and mail it in along with your receipt (some places print 2 receipts for this type of situation - one for you to keep and one that should accompany the product registration mail in, rebate mail in or extended coverage mail in.
If you purchased at counter - it all depends on where you purchased the item. Usually you can go to the retailers website and they should have a link you can click to register or another for the 2 year product protection. Click on link/follow instructions.

Or - you'll have to call by phone. It's usually a simple process where you provide them with the proper receipt information They'll take it over the phone or by email and provide you with a confirmation number for reference/troubleshooting and that's it. That's the basic system.

-- Walmart, Sam's Club
http://see.walmart.com/walmart/protection-plans
(even if you didn't purchase at counter - you can purchase the extended coverage within 30 days of your purchase)

-- Sometimes the manufacturer of the product will have a link to the underwriter (Assurion is a 3rd Party company that offers this insurance to countless manufacturers and companies - Verizon and too many others to mention use Assurion)

- So either the point of sale or the manufacturer should have the info readily available. Here's a good one though that could save you a few dollars: American Express on some or maybe all of their cards, has a pretty cool perk - if you purchase the item using your American Express - and that item/store that is selling you that item offer a one year extended warranty on top of the manufacturer's...it's free. Purchases made with your American Expresss Card on items that offer the extended year on top of the year are covered by American Express. And it's legit. They've got a few cool perks - if you buy a small, mid-size or sedan rental car - maybe vans and mini-vans, I'm not sure - and book the rental car AND pay with your American Express, you recieve standard car rental coverage insurance automatically - and are instructed by American Express to REFUSE the insurance at the door because you're already covered. - here's a link to American Express' free extended warranty extension page. So if you bought it with an American Express you're already covered.
https://www.americanexpress.com/us/content/card-benefits/extended-warranty.html
Didn't mean to get long winded on that one. All the best - Good Luck!
Thanks, Justin McCartney

Trend micro pc-cillin 2002 license key


Hi.

To start trend micro pc-cillin is not a free software. Free license keys distributed with motherboards are only valid for one year from installation.

Renewal is not free and must be purchased from Trend Micro, see:Antivirus, Anti-Spam and Internet Security Software - Trend Micro USA

Additionally the 2002 version of PC Cilling is outdated, rather than installing an old version and downloading updates, better installing a newer antivirus.

Here free antivirus:

I purchased the 2 yr extended plan, thought the cd installed, it didn't and now I do not have the receipt with the info to install it, I paid cash for laptop and care plan


Contact the organization from which you purchased the plan.

Give them your name, and the serial-number on the bottom of your Toshiba, so that they can search their records, to prove that you have purchased, and do qualify for support.

Trying to register 2 year service plan for dvd player, called the phone number it said to go to www.repairnow.com/walmart, now what do i do because it does not come up?


Had same problem, trying to register the 2 yr. service plan purchased at the same time I purchased the xbox 360. Called the 877-968-6391 service phone number, automated voice system gives you about 4 options to choose from. I did the option 1 trying to preregister the 2 yr. service plan, and it also indicated to go to the web site to register, but found no option to do so on the web site. Called back the same phone number, pressed option 3, then pressed option 4, was some how able to speak to a customer representative, who informed me that you don't have to preregister the 2 yr. service plan. She said you hang on to your receipt, your receipt should show the 2 yr. service plan number that you purchased, in the event that you have a problem with the product that you purchased, then you call the 800 service plan number shown on your receipt to get help for repairs on your purchased product. At least that's what I was told, and I hope that's the way it works, after you purchasing a service agreement for extra money!

Wal-mart's computer care is a scam.


I work for the Wal-Mart PC Care program. The PC Care program is free, it provides assistance in installing a year worth of virus protection. Anything beyond that is on a pay for fee service. It does not replace the original Dell warranty (which as pointed out) you were under. The little card board disk hold clearly states that you should save your receipt here. The receipt can be generated again at the local store. A customer can also purchase an extended service that comes info effect after the original warranty expires. It is not a bad plan, but it does pay to read and know what the plan covers. You still need to contact Dell as you are under their warranty. Pre-existing conditions are not covered by any extended service plan.
