Generally speaking, credit card benefits provide protection against mechanical breakdown by extending the original manufacturer’s warranty by one year. That’s OK – but not if your claim is for loss, theft, or an accident. Home owner’s insurance policies are another option – however, they only cover losses within the home due to a ‘standard’ peril. Typically, that includes fire, theft, or wind damage. In most cases the policy won’t cover anything else and you’d have to pay a deductible of $250+ depending on your particular policy.
Being independent means we’re able to give you a lot more than the warranties from device manufacturers or other providers. Just compare what coverage we offer for loss and theft against a traditional manufacturer’s warranty.
We need to make it very clear that your device is not insured until 14 days after the effective date when you purchased your policy. That means if anything happens to your device within this time, you won’t be covered.
Let’s hope it doesn’t, but your iPhone could have a mechanical breakdown, get stolen, lost, or you might even drop it in the pool! Over 70% of our claims are down to theft, loss, and disappearance which is why we cover your phone for all those claims - plus accidental damage from drops, spills, and screen cracks.
Once your claim has been approved, we’ll overnight your replacement device. As long as your claim has been approved before 8PM EST, you should have your replacement the next day.

Yes, it’s covered for mechanical and electrical failure under its warranty for a limited period of time. But here at Protect your Bubble we also cover accidental damage, theft, and loss. And for mechanical or electrical breakdown, we’ll cover your device after the manufacturer’s warranty expires.
We’ll do everything we can to replace your phone with the exact same model. However, your device may be repaired, or replaced with new or refurbished equipment or a different model than the original. Also, we can’t guarantee an exact color match.
