Sam's Club and SquareTrade Announce New Service ProgramApril 17, 2014
Sam's Club and SquareTrade have announced a new program to help reduce the cost of technology to the consumer. Sam's Club membership will now include warranty services that improve consumer purchasing, protection and upgrade experience.
For example, a television worth $500 or more can get a $99 4-year SquareTrade protection plan consisting of delivery, set-up, haul-away and recycling of the old TV. The new protection plan also allows for a buyback program.
Dawn von Bechmann, senior vice president for technology at Sam's Club said in a press release:
"We designed this program to make it easy and cost effective for members to buy their phones and electronics at Sam's Club. Electronics are an investment, and with our competitive new protection plans our members will save money because they won't have to make a new purchase if an accident happens. We also understand that services throughout the lifecycle of their purchases are just as important as the product itself, and that's why our protection plans also include valuable services like delivery, take away and technical assistance."
