You're excited to buy a beautiful TV screen for your home — now, make sure to protect it. Geek Squad® Protection enhances your manufacturer warranty and gives you extended coverage when the warranty ends.
Geek Squad Protection often covers important repairs that your manufacturer warranty doesn't (like failure due to a power surge).
If something goes wrong after the manufacturer warranty ends, rest easy; you won't be stuck with a huge repair bill. Geek Squad Protection has your back and will take care of any covered repairs.
We make house calls for TVs 42" and larger.
No need to lug your screen into a store. If your TV is 42" or larger, we'll come to your home to repair your issue. If we originally installed your TV, we'll also uninstall and reinstall it.
If there's a failure from normal wear and tear, we'll repair it.
This could be a problem with an internal part, or how the product was manufactured. It could also be caused by dust, internal heat or humidity. Accidental damage is not included.
If your screen has bad pixels or a shadow image, we'll correct it.
If you have at least three pixels that are always the same color or a ghost image that won't go away, we'll get your picture looking like new.
If your TV won’t turn on because of a power surge, we'll fix it.
If there's a power surge or fluctuation that damages your product, we'll make things right. This includes a surge caused by a lightning strike.
If the remote that came with your TV stops working, we'll replace it.
Get a one-time replacement for the remote control that was included in your original TV box.
You'll never pay for parts and labor.
We take care of 100% of the costs of parts and labor for covered repairs, with no hidden fees.
You can transfer your Geek Squad Protection.
When you sell or give someone your covered product, Geek Squad Protection is still in effect, with no additional charges or restrictions. Call 1-800-433-5778 to transfer.
When something goes wrong, we're always here to help.

I was happy with Insignia 50" bought two, one went down a year later, glad I purchased a warranty! I would purchase purchase again only with warranty. I purchased two 50" Samsung's that lasted 2 and 3 years that didn't have warranty. I have a 48" Panasonic Plasma from 2008 that's still strong. I have family and friends that own Insignia for years with no issues. Bottom line, luck of the draw, buy a warranty!
A:AnswerYou are actually purchasing a 5 year warranty that overlaps with the manufacturer warranty. Your 5 year warranty will most likely end 5 years from the purchase date of your tv. The big trick and heist is the way warranty companies use the word "extended". You and I would assume that after the manufacturer warranty runs out, you will have an extension of 5 years. The fine print will tell you that this isn't true. The word "extended" can also mean that you are extended more coverage for a period of 5 years, with an overlap of coverage during the original manufacturer's warranty.
A:AnswerI was in your same situation. When I bought it i asked for the accidental plan. When i called to ask about replacement they said what i bought was just basically an extended warranty. Sorry you were misguided as well.
A:AnswerA Geek Squad Protection plan can be added during the standard return/exchange period for your product. 14 days for most products. You can add the protection plan by speaking with a customer service representative at your local store. You'll just need your receipt.
A:AnswerThanks for the question. There is no need to register your Geek Squad Protection Plan. We gather your information at purchase, so we should have it all on file, and be able to look it up under your phone number.
A:AnswerHi Jim - if you purchase the Geek Squad Protection plan for your new TV and it has an issue that is not repairable, but covered under the plan (ex, 3 or more defective pixels) and your TV gets replaced by BBY/Geek Squad under the terms of your protection plan, the plan would be considered fulfilled. If you wanted coverage on your replacement TV, this would require the purchase of a new plan.
