A:AnswerThe geek squad protection starts from date of purchase or when your item was delivered to you. As it covers what the manufacturers warranty doesn’t, such as accidental damage. So if you have a normal manufacturer defect you can go through the manufacturer if you so choose. Hope this helps.

Best to be safe
Normally i can be hit or miss on buying these but for $20 for a year and knowing i had a right shoulder issue on my previous 3DS that i tried to fix myself and it still got stuck decided to replace with the 2DS, figured for $20 i can’t go wrong but once it cost $40+ that’s already at least half the system price. And if there’s issues i can go to Best Buy vs mailing to Nintendo.
I love that Best Buy offers warranties for purchase. I prefer to buy from Best Buy because the ease of using their warranties is amazing! It’s easy, convenient and it’s reassuring to have a warranty just in case you need it.
