Protect Your New Tablet and Save During Back to School with EasyCare Plus Plans

Like a computer, a brand new tablet is a significant investment, especially if you opted for a pro tablet like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. To protect your investment, I recommend looking into purchasing a warranty and replacement plan. These are especially valuable when it comes to tablets because with little protection, their screens are prone to breaking. It can also be beneficial to have help in setting up your new device, which is a service that’s included in many of these plans.


As I mentioned in an earlier post about PC warranty and service plans, Back to School is a great time to invest in one of these plans for your new tablet. The savings offered on warranty, set-up, and replacement plans at this time of year are just too good to pass up, especially when you consider the peace of mind they offer. Here’s what you can expect to receive with these plans from July 31st through September 19th at all Staples Canada locations:

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Essentials Bundle

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is a powerful tablet and one that I highly recommend, especially for users who travel a lot. That being said, it’s an expensive device that’s definitely worth purchasing protection for. With the Microsoft Surface 4 Essentials Bundle, you’ll get an extended 1-year warranty with accidental coverage. The great thing about this coverage is that it covers device replacement if your Surface Pro 4 cannot be repaired. To further protect your device, the bundle includes Liquid-Armor application for the screen, which will keep scratches at bay.


In addition to extended coverage, this bundle includes set-up and software for your new device. The EasyTech team will help you settle into using your new device by configuring it to meet your specific needs. You’ll also get your choice of a one-year subscription to Microsoft Office or a perpetual license to the Home & Student version of the software.


Depending on the value of the Surface Pro 4 you select, this plan starts at $262.99, offering a savings of $75.


Tablet Total Protection Bundle

Tablets are ultra-portable and have little in the way of screen protection, which makes them vulnerable to bumps and drops. Like any other tech device, it’s also possible for them to malfunction. The Tablet Total Protection Bundle offers a 1-year extended warranty and two years of accidental coverage, giving you valuable protection against malfunctions and accidents. Like the Surface Pro 4 bundle, the Tablet Total Protection includes application of Liquid-Armor scratch-resistant screen protector.


This bundle also includes the configuration of your new device to your specific needs.


The bundle begins at just $115, depending on the value of your new tablet. It offers cost savings of up to $65. Given the peace of mind this plan can offer, it’s hard to wrong with that price tag!
