Why Upsie is the Best Insurance for Used Tablets

Tablets are wonderful devices that can be used for working, playing games, drawing and more. They are even better when purchased for a discounted price, like used and refurbished tablets are. However, with all used devices, there is a higher risk of something malfunctioning due to older age or previous use. A warranty will protect your new-to-you tablet and Upsie is the best insurance for used tablets.

Should I get insurance for my used tablet?

Purchasing insurance protection for a used tablet is certainly a smart idea. For one, you don’t know what that tablet has been through. It’s very possible that the previous owner dropped it, spilled on it or repeatedly used it until it died. Those occurrences can cause your tablet to more quickly malfunction later on. Warranty protection will cover you when those malfunctions happen. Upsie tablet insurance will also cover your accidents if you drop or spill on your tablet. All you will have to pay is a small deductible of $25.

What is the best used tablet insurance?

Used tablet insurance is not easy to come by. Luckily, Upsie offers warranties for new, used and refurbished laptops purchased within the last 60-days. Upsie tablet insurance includes extended manufacturer protection, as well as accident protection from drops and spills. It’s important to note that used tablets must come with at least a 30-day seller warranty in order to get an Upsie warranty.

Is Upsie better and cheaper than AppleCare?

Upsie is almost always cheaper than AppleCare. When comparing plans, be sure to look at the deductible price as well as the plan price.

In addition, Upsie’s deductible is only $25, while Apple’s deductible is $49.
Upsie also does not limit the number of claims that you can make per plan; you can make an unlimited number of claims that add up to the purchase value of the tablet. Apple does limit the number of claims you can make to two claims. Lastly, you can get your Apple device repaired at an Apple Genius Bar when you have Upsie insurance.
