OnePlus sweetens the pot for Indian buyers by launching OnePlus Care
OnePlus has launched an after-sales service program in India called OnePlus Care. The new initiative from OnePlus is designed for existing and new OnePlus smartphone buyers. The company is offering buyers three exclusive perks through the OnePlus Care program at no cost whatsoever.
The first benefit of enrolling in the OnePlus Care program is a free one-year extended warranty on OnePlus smartphones. The offer is applicable for phones still under the original warranty period.
Smartphones eligible for the one-year free extended warranty include the following:
- OnePlus 6T
- OnePlus 7
- OnePlus 7 Pro
- OnePlus 7T
- Any future phone that follows.
By getting it for free, you end up saving anywhere between Rs 1,299 (~$18) and Rs 2,039 (~$28) for an extended warranty if you have devices ranging from the OnePlus 6T to OnePlus 7T.
50% off on battery replacement
The second benefit of enrolling in OnePlus Care in India is a 50% discount on battery replacement. This is valid on the OnePlus 3/3T/5/5T/6 smartphones. The original battery replacement cost for these devices ranges from Rs 1,651 to Rs 1,607 ($22-23 approximately). This has now been set at an even Rs 600 (~$9) for all the above mentioned phones.
Perhaps the juiciest benefit of OnePlus Care is the upgrade program. OnePlus users in India will now be able to upgrade their current device to the latest one with attractive trade-in offers.
The trade-in value starts at up to Rs 5,400 (~$75) for the OnePlus 3 and goes all the way up to Rs 32,200 for the OnePlus 7 Pro (~$452). You can check out all the trade-in prices on offer under the OnePlus Care program here.
How to get OnePlus Care in India?
To avail all the benefits of OnePlus Care, you need to download the OnePlus Care app and sign-in using your OnePlus account. You can then link your OnePlus devices and redeem the benefits. If you’ve been using the old OnePlus Care App, uninstall it and then download the updated app.
The company says you can link multiple devices to one OnePlus account. Those going in for battery replacements are requested to make a reservation in advance through the OnePlus Care app.
