PRICE PROTECTION

It is important for most buyers to get the best deal when purchasing a new item, however it can be irritating when You discover that the same item You recently purchased is being Advertised for less than what You paid for.

With Price Protection, if You buy an eligible item with Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account in the United States and see the identical eligible item available for less in another retail store’s printed Advertisement or non-auction Internet Advertisement within sixty (60) days of the Date of Purchase, You can be reimbursed the difference up to $500 per item and up to $2,500 a year.

You are eligible for this benefit if You are a valid cardholder of an eligible U.S. issued card and You charge either a portion or the entire purchase price of the eligible item to Your Account or rewards program earned on Your covered Account toward the purchase. You will only be reimbursed up to the amount charged to Your Account or the program limit.

Price Protection is secondary to and in excess of store policies offering a lowest-price guarantee or any other form of refund for price differences.

Price differences involving manufacturing and/or merchant rebates, shipping and handling fees, and sales tax, if any, are not covered by the Price Protection benefit.

EXTENDED WARRANTY PROTECTION

Product warranties can be inconvenient and cumbersome to use. Let’s say You purchased a great gadget about a year ago, but it just stopped working, and You can’t find Your sales receipt and warranty information. For all-too-common situations like these, Extended Warranty Protection can help.

Extended Warranty Protection provides You with valuable features that help You manage, use and extend the warranties for eligible items purchased on Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account. Services include Warranty Registration and Extended Protection. You are eligible for this benefit if You are a cardholder of an eligible card issued in the United States and You purchase either a portion or the entire cost of the item using Your Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

HERE’S HOW WARRANTY REGISTRATION WORKS

When You purchase an eligible item that carries a manufacturer’s warranty, You can register Your purchase by calling 1-800-551-8472 or call collect outside the U.S. at 1-303-967-1096. You can also register Your purchase online at www.cardbenefitservices.com.

The Benefit Administrator will tell You where to send Your item’s sales receipt and warranty information, so they can be kept on file should You need them.

If You choose not to register Your item, be sure to keep Your monthly billing statement reflecting the purchase, the itemized sales receipt, the original manufacturer’s written U.S. warranty and any additional warranty in a safe place. These documents will be required to verify Your claim.

HERE’S HOW EXTENDED PROTECTION WORKS

Your warranty coverage can be doubled up to one (1) additional year on eligible warranties of three (3) years or less. For example, a manufacturer’s warranty of three (3) months would be provided with an additional three (3) months of coverage for a combined total of six (6) months of coverage, and a warranty for six (6) months would be provided with an additional six (6) months of coverage for a combined total of twelve (12) months of coverage. However, if the manufacturer’s warranty is for three (3) years, it would only be extended one (1) additional year for a combined total of four (4) years of coverage.

This benefit is limited to no more than the original price of the purchased item (as shown on Your credit card receipt), less shipping and handling fees, up to a maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) per claim, and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder.

The benefit covers purchases made both inside and outside the U.S. The eligible item must have a valid original manufacturer’s U.S. repair warranty of three (3) years or less, store-purchased dealer warranty, or an assembler warranty.

AUTO RENTAL COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER

No cardholder wants to incur the expense of repairing or replacing a rented car. But accidents do happen, and vehicles do get stolen. No matter what happens to Your rental car, You can be covered with Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver reimburses You for damages caused by theft or collision – up to the Actual Cash Value of most rented cars. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers no other type of loss. For example, in the event of a collision involving Your rented vehicle, damage to any other driver’s car or the injury of anyone or anything is not covered. Rental periods of fifteen (15) consecutive days within Your country of residence, and thirty-one (31) consecutive days outside it, are both covered. (Longer rental periods, however, are not covered.)

You are eligible for this benefit if Your name is embossed on an eligible card issued in the United States and You use it to initiate and complete Your entire car rental transaction. Only You as the primary car renter and any additional drivers permitted by the Rental Car Agreement are covered.

HOW AUTO RENTAL COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER WORKS WITH OTHER INSURANCE

Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers theft, damage, valid loss-of-use charges imposed and substantiated by the auto rental company, administrative fees and reasonable and customary towing charges, due to a covered theft or damage to the nearest qualified repair facility.

If You do have personal automobile insurance or other insurance that covers theft or damage, this benefit reimburses You for the deductible portion of Your car insurance or other insurance, along with any unreimbursed portion of administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the car rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges while the car was Your responsibility.

If You do not have personal automobile insurance or any other insurance, the benefit reimburses You for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while You are responsible for the vehicle.

If You are renting outside of Your country of residence, the coverage provided under this benefit is primary and reimburses You for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while You are responsible for the vehicle.

HOW TO USE AUTO RENTAL COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER

  1. Use Your card to initiate and complete Your entire car rental transaction.
  2. Review the auto rental agreement and decline the rental company’s collision damage waiver (CDW/LDW) option, or a similar provision, as accepting this coverage will cancel out Your benefit. If the rental company insists that You purchase their insurance or collision damage waiver, call the Benefit Administrator for assistance at 1-800-348-8472. Outside the United States, call collect at 1-804-673-1164.

Before You leave the lot, be sure to check the car for any prior damage.

This benefit is in effect during the time the rental car is in Your (or an authorized driver’s) control, and it terminates when the rental company reassumes control of their vehicle.

This benefit is available in the United States and most foreign countries (with the exception of Israel, Jamaica, the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland). However, this benefit is not available where precluded by law, or where it’s in violation of the territory terms of the auto rental agreement, or when prohibited by individual merchants. Because regulations vary outside the United States, check with Your auto rental company and the Benefit Administrator before You travel, to be sure that Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver will apply.

VEHICLES NOT COVERED

Certain vehicles are not covered by this benefit, they consist of: expensive, exotic, and antique cars; cargo vans; certain vans; vehicles with an open cargo bed; trucks; motorcycles; mopeds; motorbikes; limousines; and recreational vehicles.

Examples of expensive or exotic cars are the Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, Maybach, McLaren, Porsche, Rolls Royce, and Tesla.

Vans are not covered. But those designed as small-group transportation vehicles (seating up to nine (9) people, including the driver) are covered.

If You have questions about a specific vehicle’s coverage or organization where the vehicle is being reserved, call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800-348-8472, or call collect outside the United States at 1-804-673-1164.

FORM #ARCDW – 2017 (Stand 04/17)ARCDW-O

PURCHASE SECURITY

Life is full of surprises — some good, and some not so good.

Suppose, for instance, Your son’s brand new iPad was soaked in a sudden rainstorm at summer camp. But You bought the item with Your card, so You may be covered.

Purchase Security protects new retail purchases made with Your eligible Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account within the first ninety (90) days from the date of purchase. To be eligible for this coverage, You need to purchase either a portion or the entire cost of the item using Your Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

At the Benefit Administrator’s discretion, this benefit replaces, repairs, or reimburses You, up to the total purchase price of Your item for a maximum of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per claim and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00), per cardholder, in the event of theft or damage.

You are eligible for this benefit if You are a cardholder of an eligible card issued in the United States.

Gifts purchased for friends and family members may also be covered if they are purchased with Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

PURCHASE SECURITY COVERS:

Eligible items of personal property purchased with Your Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account are covered for damage or theft. Purchases made outside the United States are also covered as long as You purchased the item with Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

PURCHASE SECURITY DOES NOT COVER:

  • Animals and living plants
  • Antiques or collectible items
  • Boats, aircraft, automobiles, and any other motorized vehicles and their motors, equipment, or accessories, including trailers and other items towable or attachable to any motorized vehicle
  • Broken items, unless the result of a covered occurrence
  • Computer software
  • Items purchased for resale, either professional or commercial use
  • Items that are lost, or that “mysteriously disappear,” meaning they vanished in an unexplained manner, with no evidence of wrongdoing by one person or several
  • Items under the control and care of a common carrier (including the U.S. Postal Service, airplanes, or a delivery service)
  • Items in Your baggage (unless hand carried, or under Your supervision or that of a companion You know); includes jewelry and watches, among other things
  • Theft or damage stemming from abuse, fraud, hostilities (war, invasion, rebellion, insurrection, terrorist activities, and more); confiscation by authorities (if contraband or illegal); normal wear and tear; flood, earthquake, radioactive contamination; damage from inherent product defects
  • Theft or damage from misdelivery, or voluntarily parting with property
  • Medical equipment
  • Perishable or consumable items, including cosmetics, perfumes, rechargeable batteries, among others
  • Real estate and items intended for real estate, including hard-wired and hard-plumbed items, garage doors and openers, ceiling fans, among other items
  • Rented and leased items
  • Traveler’s checks, cash, tickets, credit or debit cards, among other negotiable purchased instruments
  • Items used or pre-owned (refurbished items will not be considered used or pre-owned as long accompanied by a warranty)

FILING A PURCHASE SECURITY CLAIM

Call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800-553-4820, or call collect outside the U.S. at 1-303-967-1096, within sixty (60) days of the damage or theft (if You wait longer, coverage may be denied). The Benefit Administrator will ask for some preliminary claim information, answer Your questions and send You a claim form. When You submit Your claim, be sure to include all information regarding Your claim including the time, place, cause and the amount to either replace or repair the item.

If You have insurance (homeowner’s, renter’s, car, employer or any other), You are required to file a claim with Your insurance company and to submit a copy of any claim settlement from Your insurance company along with Your claim form. Purchase Security provides coverage on an “excess” coverage basis, meaning it does not duplicate coverage, but pays for a loss only after valid and collectible insurance or indemnity (including, but not limited to, homeowner’s, renter’s, automobile, or employer’s insurance policies) has been exhausted. At that point, Purchase Security will cover the loss up to the amount charged to Your eligible Account, subject to the terms, exclusions, and limits of liability of the benefit.

This benefit also pays for the outstanding deductible portion of Your insurance or indemnity for eligible claims. The maximum total limit of liability is up to one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per claim occurrence and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder. You will receive no more than the purchase price as recorded on the eligible card receipt.

When a protected item is part of a pair or set, You will receive no more than the value (as described above) of the particular part or parts, stolen or damaged, regardless of any special value that item may have as part of such a pair or set, and no more than the proportionate part of an aggregate purchase price of such pair or set.

For faster filing, or to learn more about Purchase Security, visit www.cardbenefitservices.com.

All losses must be substantiated. If the loss was not reported, please contact the Benefit Administrator to determine if there may be other documentation that can be provided to determine your eligibility for Purchase Protection
  • Any other documents necessary to substantiate Your claim

In some cases of damage, You will be asked to send, at Your expense, the damaged item along with Your claim in order to substantiate the claim, so make sure to keep the damaged item in Your possession.

PLEASE NOTE: Your maximum recovery under the Purchase Security Benefit is the purchase price of the item, not to exceed the coverage limit.

Please return Your signed and completed form with all documentation within ninety (90) days of the date of theft or damage.

HOW WILL I BE REIMBURSED?

Once You’ve met the conditions of this benefit, the Benefit Administrator will resolve Your claim in one of two ways:

  • A damaged item may be repaired, rebuilt, or replaced, while a stolen item will be replaced. Typically, You will receive notice about this decision within fifteen (15) days upon receipt of Your claim documentation.

EXTENDED WARRANTY PROTECTION

Product warranties can be inconvenient and cumbersome to use. Let’s say You purchased a great gadget about a year ago, but it just stopped working, and You can’t find Your sales receipt and warranty information. For all-too-common situations like these, Extended Warranty Protection can help.

Extended Warranty Protection provides You with valuable features that help You manage, use and extend the warranties for eligible items purchased on Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account. Services include Warranty Registration and Extended Protection. You are eligible for this benefit if You are a cardholder of an eligible card issued in the United States and You purchase either a portion or the entire cost of the item using Your Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

HERE’S HOW WARRANTY REGISTRATION WORKS

When You purchase an eligible item that carries a manufacturer’s warranty, You can register Your purchase by calling 1-800-551-8472 or call collect outside the U.S. at 1-303-967-1096. You can also register Your purchase online at www.cardbenefitservices.com.

The Benefit Administrator will tell You where to send Your item’s sales receipt and warranty information, so they can be kept on file should You need them.

If You choose not to register Your item, be sure to keep Your monthly billing statement reflecting the purchase, the itemized sales receipt, the original manufacturer’s written U.S. warranty and any additional warranty in a safe place. These documents will be required to verify Your claim.

HERE’S HOW EXTENDED PROTECTION WORKS

Your warranty coverage can be doubled up to one (1) additional year on eligible warranties of three (3) years or less. For example, a manufacturer’s warranty of three (3) months would be provided with an additional three (3) months of coverage for a combined total of six (6) months of coverage, and a warranty for six (6) months would be provided with an additional six (6) months of coverage for a combined total of twelve (12) months of coverage. However, if the manufacturer’s warranty is for three (3) years, it would only be extended one (1) additional year for a combined total of four (4) years of coverage.

This benefit is limited to no more than the original price of the purchased item (as shown on Your credit card receipt), less shipping and handling fees, up to a maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) per claim, and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder.

The benefit covers purchases made both inside and outside the U.S. The eligible item must have a valid original manufacturer’s U.S. repair warranty of three (3) years or less, store-purchased dealer warranty, or an assembler warranty.

WHAT EXTENDED PROTECTION DOES NOT COVER:

  • Boats, automobiles, aircraft, and any other motorized vehicles and their motors, equipment, or accessories, including trailers and other items that can be towed by or attached to any motorized vehicle
  • Any costs other than those specifically covered under the terms of the original manufacturer’s written U.S. repair warranty, as supplied by the original manufacturer, or other eligible warranty
  • Items purchased for resale, professional, or commercial use
  • Real estate and items which are intended to become part of real estate including, but not limited to, items that are hard-wired or hard-plumbed, garage doors, garage door openers, and ceiling fans
  • Rented or leased items
  • Computer software

The Benefit Administrator will request preliminary claim information, direct You to the appropriate repair facility, and send You the claim form. Gift recipients of eligible items are also covered, but they must provide all the documents needed to substantiate their claim.

If You received or purchased a service contract or an extended warranty when You purchased Your item, this benefit will be supplemental to, and in excess of, that coverage.

ADD (10/07)

AUTO RENTAL COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER

No cardholder wants to incur the expense of repairing or replacing a rented car. But accidents do happen, and vehicles do get stolen. No matter what happens to Your rental car, You can be covered with Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver reimburses You for damages caused by theft or collision – up to the Actual Cash Value of most rented cars. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers no other type of loss. For example, in the event of a collision involving Your rented vehicle, damage to any other driver’s car or the injury of anyone or anything is not covered. Rental periods of fifteen (15) consecutive days within Your country of residence, and thirty-one (31) consecutive days outside it, are both covered. (Longer rental periods, however, are not covered.)

You are eligible for this benefit if Your name is embossed on an eligible card issued in the United States and You use it to initiate and complete Your entire car rental transaction. Only You as the primary car renter and any additional drivers permitted by the Rental Car Agreement are covered.

HOW AUTO RENTAL COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER WORKS WITH OTHER INSURANCE

Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers theft, damage, valid loss-of-use charges imposed and substantiated by the auto rental company, administrative fees and reasonable and customary towing charges, due to a covered theft or damage to the nearest qualified repair facility.

If You do have personal automobile insurance or other insurance that covers theft or damage, this benefit reimburses You for the deductible portion of Your car insurance or other insurance, along with any unreimbursed portion of administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the car rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges while the car was Your responsibility.

If You do not have personal automobile insurance or any other insurance, the benefit reimburses You for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while You are responsible for the vehicle.

If You are renting outside of Your country of residence, the coverage provided under this benefit is primary and reimburses You for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while You are responsible for the vehicle.

HOW TO USE AUTO RENTAL COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER

  1. Use Your card to initiate and complete Your entire car rental transaction.
  2. Review the auto rental agreement and decline the rental company’s collision damage waiver (CDW/LDW) option, or a similar provision, as accepting this coverage will cancel out Your benefit. If the rental company insists that You purchase their insurance or collision damage waiver, call the Benefit Administrator for assistance at 1-800-348-8472. Outside the United States, call collect at 1-804-673-1164.

Before You leave the lot, be sure to check the car for any prior damage.

This benefit is in effect during the time the rental car is in Your (or an authorized driver’s) control, and it terminates when the rental company reassumes control of their vehicle.

This benefit is available in the United States and most foreign countries (with the exception of Israel, Jamaica, the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland). However, this benefit is not available where precluded by law, or where it’s in violation of the territory terms of the auto rental agreement, or when prohibited by individual merchants. Because regulations vary outside the United States, check with Your auto rental company and the Benefit Administrator before You travel, to be sure that Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver will apply.

VEHICLES NOT COVERED

Certain vehicles are not covered by this benefit, they consist of: expensive, exotic, and antique cars; cargo vans; certain vans; vehicles with an open cargo bed; trucks; motorcycles; mopeds; motorbikes; limousines; and recreational vehicles.

Examples of expensive or exotic cars are the Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, Maybach, McLaren, Porsche, Rolls Royce, and Tesla. However, selected models of Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac, Infiniti, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, and Range Rover are covered.

An antique car is defined as one that is over twenty (20) years old, or one that has not been manufactured for ten (10) years or more.

Vans are not covered. But those designed as small-group transportation vehicles (seating up to nine (9) people, including the driver) are covered.

If You have questions about a specific vehicle’s coverage or organization where the vehicle is being reserved, call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800-348-8472, or call collect outside the United States at 1-804-673-1164.

PURCHASE SECURITY

Life is full of surprises — some good, and some not so good.

Suppose, for instance, Your son’s brand new iPad was soaked in a sudden rainstorm at summer camp. But You bought the item with Your card, so You may be covered.

Purchase Security protects new retail purchases made with Your eligible Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account within the first ninety (90) days from the date of purchase. To be eligible for this coverage, You need to purchase either a portion or the entire cost of the item using Your Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

At the Benefit Administrator’s discretion, this benefit replaces, repairs, or reimburses You, up to the total purchase price of Your item for a maximum of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per claim and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00), per cardholder, in the event of theft or damage.

You are eligible for this benefit if You are a cardholder of an eligible card issued in the United States.

Gifts purchased for friends and family members may also be covered if they are purchased with Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

PURCHASE SECURITY COVERS:

Eligible items of personal property purchased with Your Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account are covered for damage or theft. Purchases made outside the United States are also covered as long as You purchased the item with Your covered Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account.

PURCHASE SECURITY DOES NOT COVER:

  • Animals and living plants
  • Antiques or collectible items
  • Boats, aircraft, automobiles, and any other motorized vehicles and their motors, equipment, or accessories, including trailers and other items towable or attachable to any motorized vehicle
  • Broken items, unless the result of a covered occurrence
  • Computer software
  • Items purchased for resale, either professional or commercial use
  • Items that are lost, or that “mysteriously disappear,” meaning they vanished in an unexplained manner, with no evidence of wrongdoing by one person or several
  • Items under the control and care of a common carrier (including the U.S. Postal Service, airplanes, or a delivery service)
  • Items in Your baggage (unless hand carried, or under Your supervision or that of a companion You know); includes jewelry and watches, among other things
  • Theft or damage stemming from abuse, fraud, hostilities (war, invasion, rebellion, insurrection, terrorist activities, and more); confiscation by authorities (if contraband or illegal); normal wear and tear; flood, earthquake, radioactive contamination; damage from inherent product defects
  • Theft or damage from misdelivery, or voluntarily parting with property
  • Medical equipment
  • Perishable or consumable items, including cosmetics, perfumes, rechargeable batteries, among others
  • Real estate and items intended for real estate, including hard-wired and hard-plumbed items, garage doors and openers, ceiling fans, among other items
  • Rented and leased items
  • Traveler’s checks, cash, tickets, credit or debit cards, among other negotiable purchased instruments
  • Items used or pre-owned (refurbished items will not be considered used or pre-owned as long accompanied by a warranty)

FILING A PURCHASE SECURITY CLAIM

Call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800-553-4820, or call collect outside the U.S. at 1-303-967-1096, within sixty (60) days of the damage or theft (if You wait longer, coverage may be denied). The Benefit Administrator will ask for some preliminary claim information, answer Your questions and send You a claim form. When You submit Your claim, be sure to include all information regarding Your claim including the time, place, cause and the amount to either replace or repair the item.

If You have insurance (homeowner’s, renter’s, car, employer or any other), You are required to file a claim with Your insurance company and to submit a copy of any claim settlement from Your insurance company along with Your claim form. Purchase Security provides coverage on an “excess” coverage basis, meaning it does not duplicate coverage, but pays for a loss only after valid and collectible insurance or indemnity (including, but not limited to, homeowner’s, renter’s, automobile, or employer’s insurance policies) has been exhausted. At that point, Purchase Security will cover the loss up to the amount charged to Your eligible Account, subject to the terms, exclusions, and limits of liability of the benefit.

This benefit also pays for the outstanding deductible portion of Your insurance or indemnity for eligible claims. The maximum total limit of liability is up to one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per claim occurrence and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder. You will receive no more than the purchase price as recorded on the eligible card receipt.

When a protected item is part of a pair or set, You will receive no more than the value (as described above) of the particular part or parts, stolen or damaged, regardless of any special value that item may have as part of such a pair or set, and no more than the proportionate part of an aggregate purchase price of such pair or set.

Gift recipients may file their own claims, if they have the necessary substantiating documents.

Please submit the following documents:

  • Your signed and completed claim form
  • A copy of Your monthly billing statement (showing the last four [4] digits of the Account number) demonstrating that the purchase was made on Your eligible Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account
  • If more than one method of payment was used, please provide documentation as to additional currency, voucher, points or any other payment method utilized
  • A copy of the itemized store receipt demonstrating that the purchase was made on Your eligible Account and/or rewards program associated with Your covered Account
  • Copy of the documentation of any other settlement of the loss (if applicable)
  • If the item is repairable, the estimate of repair OR a copy of the paid receipt/invoice for the repairs, indicating the type of damage to the claimed item (if applicable)
  • A copy of a police report (in the case of theft), fire report, or other incident report made within forty-eight [48] hours or as soon as reasonably possible of the occurrence. All losses must be substantiated. If the loss was not reported, please contact the Benefit Administrator to determine if there may be other documentation that can be provided to determine your eligibility for Purchase Protection
  • Any other documents necessary to substantiate Your claim

In some cases of damage, You will be asked to send, at Your expense, the damaged item along with Your claim in order to substantiate the claim, so make sure to keep the damaged item in Your possession.

PLEASE NOTE: Your maximum recovery under the Purchase Security Benefit is the purchase price of the item, not to exceed the coverage limit.

Please return Your signed and completed form with all documentation within ninety (90) days of the date of theft or damage.

HOW WILL I BE REIMBURSED?

Once You’ve met the conditions of this benefit, the Benefit Administrator will resolve Your claim in one of two ways:

  • A damaged item may be repaired, rebuilt, or replaced, while a stolen item will be replaced. Typically, You will receive notice about this decision within fifteen (15) days upon receipt of Your claim documentation.
  • You may receive payment to replace Your item, an amount not more than the original purchase price, less shipping and handling charges, up to one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per claim and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder. You will only be reimbursed up to the dollar amount to replace or repair the item or the program limit, whichever is less. Under normal circumstances, reimbursement will take place within five (5) business days.
