Square Trade Discount not valid on Kindle?
« on: December 16, 2011, 06:17:27 am »
Did anyone else get the e mail with 30% off a warantee, but  you can't use it on a Kindle device?  That isn't right.....

    My understanding was just not on Fires because Amazon was selling Squaretrade warranties directly.  But I could be wrong.

    It's basically not good on any warranty that ST is selling directly on Amazon, at least that's what they told me when I'd emailed about getting one for my Fire - they're now the provider for the new-in-2011 Kindles (Fire, Touch & K4) - Service Net still is the warranty provider for the Kindle Keyboard.  If you try to buy one for the Fire, you're taken to the Amazon site to actually purchase it.

    BUT, I got that email today too, and I just put the K4 I purchased this week in a cart on ST, applied the code and it worked.  I'm not going to buy it, based on the $79 purchase price and Amazon's support of Kindles (and the fact that if I wanted one I could get it for $9 from the store where I purchased it).  But it did accept the code and 30% discount on the ST site.
