Samsung Care+ could bring theft and loss insurance coverage

Last updated: November 3rd, 2020 at 07:01 UTC+01:00

Samsung’s premium after-sales service plan Samsung Care+ currently covers accidental damage, including cracked screens, drops, and accidental liquid damage. It currently doesn’t cover burglary or theft of a device. However, that could soon change as newly uncovered information suggests Samsung could add theft cover at an additional cost.

The folks over at XDA Developers did a teardown of the Samsung Shop app’s APK file and found that the South Korean firm could allow Samsung Care+ subscribers to add a Theft and Loss subscription in the future. The subscription will be billed monthly over 36 months (or until canceled).

Samsung Care+ currently costs $3.99, $8.99, or $11.99, depending on the device. However, it is not clear how much the service plan would cost after adding the Theft and Loss subscription or when the new benefits would be made available.

Here are the strings that were extracted from the Samsung Shop APK:

Samsung Care+ and Samsung Care+ with Theft and Loss Subscription: I understand that I will be billed on a recurring basis for 36 months or until canceled. The monthly charge will be a standard purchase with payment due in full every month and is not eligible for special financing.

Samsung Care+ with Theft and Loss Subscription: Insurance coverage for loss, theft, and damage. Service contract coverage for accidental damage from handling (ADH) and out of warranty mechanical breakdowns. $99 – $269 insurance deductibles and $29 – $99 service fees apply. Maximum of three (3) insurance claims within any consecutive 12-month period, with replacement product value maximum of $2,500 per claim. Maximum of three (3) ADH claims within any consecutive 12-month period. Claims may be fulfilled with a new or refurbished product. You may cancel your optional coverage at any time and receive a prorated refund. Program coverage contains binding arbitration (express state exemptions may apply; please see your program terms and conditions).
