Processors, hard drives, monitors, memory components, device boards and optical (DVD/CD) drives are just a few of the parts that make up the complexity of today’s computer systems. Labor rates, not including parts, for desktop or laptop computers run from $50 – $100 per hour. Approximately 50% of computer problems occur after the first year and one repair incident, without an extended warranty, can cost between $150 to $900. You can rest easy with an extended service contract.

What is Covered?
The CPS Extended Warranty Plan extends the coverage of any malfunctions that would normally be covered within the terms and conditions of the original written warranty for as many extra years as you buy.
What exactly is a service plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer’s warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. CPS extended service plans lengthen your products coverage for up to and additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer’s warranty?
A manufacturer’s warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a television might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. CPS extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.
Can I renew my extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a CPS representative to discuss your renewal options at (800) 905- 0443.

For assistance please contact a CPS Representative at (800) 905- 0443. Please have all of the new owner’s information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Every CPS service plan carries a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with a CPS service plan there are no high upfront costs and we are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
