I’m a big believer in SquareTrade warranties for the iPad. Both iPads in our household (my iPad 3G and my wife and daughter’s WiFi model) are covered by two year plans from SquareTrade.
SquareTrade are celebrating their 11th anniversary, and offering all their warranties at 30% off for today only, October 5th (with 20% off rates continuing until October 18). As you can see represented in the graphic above, SquareTrade offers coverage for accidental drops and spills that Apple’s plans do not. Their coverage is the best and most reasonably priced that I’ve come across for iPads and iPhones, and their reviews on Amazon and elsewhere are stellar.
With today’s 30% discount, the warranty price for a 64GB iPad 3G model drops from around $120 to $89.99. SquareTrade’s normal prices are already quite good – today’s sale makes them a very attractive deal if you’re looking for iPad warranty protection over and above what Apple provides.
