How do I get Geek Squad Protection if I didn't buy it when I got my product?Plans may be purchased if it is within the product specific return policy period, which is printed on the back of your receipt. Simply bring your receipt and phone to the customer service desk of a Best Buy retail store and say you would like to purchase a Geek Squad Protection plan.
How do I transfer my plan to someone else?The Drops, Spills and Defects plan is transferable to another owner for the product identified by the serial number on the plan. There are no restrictions, provided your plan is valid. Plans cannot be transferred to another product, however. You can transfer your plan to another person during the plan's coverage period, as long as the plan does not have an open claim. For more assistance call 1-800-GeekSquad (1-800-433-5778) or visit your local Best Buy store. Transfers must be completed by the original owner. Loss and Theft coverage is not transferable.
How soon until I can use Geek Squad Protection?You can use it immediately. There is no need to register and we can take care of your request at anytime.
What if I dropped my cell phone walking to work?Ouch! If you have our Advanced Geek Squad Protection Plan with Accidental Damage from Handling coverage, it'll be covered. However, we don't cover phones that fall from significant heights such as decks, balconies and windows. Plans also don't cover physical abuse like smashing a phone.
Do I need to do anything special if I get my phone serviced or replaced?If you've received a replacement device as part of a service and have Loss and Theft protection, you will need to write down the serial or IMEI number of the replacement device for your records. The serial or IMEI number of the new device will be needed if you need to submit a Loss and Theft claim.
My phone was lost or stolen, how do I make a claim?After filing a police report, if needed, and suspending your service with your carrier to prevent unauthorized use, we will work with you to get a replacement phone to you. Having the brochure and receipt you got when you bought the plan will make filing the claim easier. To make the claim, call us at 1-866-205-4388 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. CST. All claims must be filed within 60 days of the precipitating incident. Learn more about what you'll need to file a claim.
