Safeware Providing Coverage for the Hotly Anticipated Kindle Fire

Safeware Is Providing Both Extended Service Plan and Insurance Options for Less Than $40

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - Safeware, a leader in consumer product protection since 1982, announced that they will offer customers two protection options for their Kindle Fire.

With the Kindle Fire only one day away from shipping to consumers, it looks like it's going to be a good holiday for Amazon. Just days before the launch reports were indicating Amazon plans to increase orders to more than 5 million devices due to demand.

While the iPad and iPad 2 have had a large lead in the tablet market, consumers look to be ready to make a switch to lower cost devices such as the Kindle Fire. A recent survey by Retrevo, a consumer electronics review site, found that of the 69% of consumers who are interested in tablets, 44% of those would consider the new Kindle Fire.

The price point of $199 should make the Kindle Fire one of the hottest gifts of the season -- which is exactly why customers are looking for ways to protect their investment. Owners can choose between an Extended Service Plan with Accidental Damage in Handling Coverage, or a Comprehensive Insurance Policy.

The Extended Service Plan that includes Accidental Damage is only $38 for 2 years of coverage. The plan protects against:

  • Mechanical Failure
  • Electrical Failure
  • Manufacturers Defects
  • Accidental Damage
  • Power Surge
  • Liquid Damage

The Comprehensive Insurance Policy is only $30 for 2 years of coverage. The policy protects against:

  • Theft, Burglary, Robbery
  • Accidental Damage
  • Liquid Spills
  • Power Surge
  • Flood
  • Fire
  • Vandalism

At pennies a day, either solution is a great deal and enables consumers to continue enjoying their Kindle Fire even if the unexpected happens.
