Did you neglect to sign up for insurance when you bought your AT&T smartphone? Usually customers only have a 30-day window from the time the phone is purchased to sign up for their mobile phone insurance plan. If you’re looking to sign up for insurance, even after your 30 days are up, AT&T might have a promotion for you. From now until March 31st, AT&T is offering open enrollment outside of the regular eligibility window of 30 days. So, if you bought your device 6 months ago, you can now sign up for insurance.
AT&T is offering a few different pricing tiers for mobile insurance with this new promotion:
- AT&T Mobile Insurance: $6.99 a month per device. The insurance includes coverage for loss, theft, accidental damage and out-of-warranty malfunctions for an eligible phone or tablet.
- AT&T Mobile Protection Pack (MPP): $9.99 a month for an eligible phone or tablet. MPP includes AT&T Mobile Insurance plus access to technical assistance with enhanced support. The Mobile Locate app is also included and lets you lock and erase a lost device, secure content and more.
- AT&T Multi-Device Protection Pack (MDPP): $29.99 a month. This program provides protection and support for up to three eligible devices, including smartphones, tablets (Wi-Fi and cellular), and laptops.
So, $6.99 per month will get you the baseline mobile insurance and will allow you two claims per consecutive 12-month period. For $9.99 per month, you’ll have all of the features available in the first tier, access to the carrier’s Mobile Locate app, plus access to AT&T’s tech support. For $29.99 per month, you can protect up to three devices (smartphones, tablets and laptops) and share six claims between the devices per consecutive 12-month period. As long as one of the devices is connected to AT&T’s network, the other two devices can be your own, even if they have no tie to the carrier whatsoever.
This promotion ends March 31st, so if you’re thinking about signing up, you can head to AT&T’s website to do so. What do you think? Are AT&T’s insurance prices good enough to sign up?
