There is an outside company that will warranty for 3 years. ***must do within 30 days of purchasing the Kindle. MUST ask to get the ADH plan (accidental damage in handling) will cover drops. (but not blatant negligence like taking it in pool). They will not charge a fee for malfunction replacement under the plan BUT if you have to make good on the "ADH" part of the plan there is a $50.00 fee. SquareTrade.com or Questions?

i seen it right on the Amazon site. Within the last few days... at least I THOUGHT I did...

edit: It was the SONY that had it on the site lol and it wasn't even Amazon! I just ordered my Kindle but I don't get to have it until Dec 25th!

Thank you for your help. The site you listed isn't working right now. But the Kindle comes with a one year so I will try in the next few days to do that one. Is it 3 years after the Kindle's expires or just 3 yeard total?

Amazon does not offer any 'extended service warranty'.

The amazon discussion board is on the amazon site......

Here is the link

http://www.squaretrade.com/pages/

They don't have an option for ebook readers (or Kindle) but when I contacted them, they told me to register it as Drive/Storage (under Computer-Other). Others have been told to register it as a PDA; however, I noticed the ADH is more for a PDA. Either way, you should contact them immediately afterwards and have them update their records to reflect it is a Kindle.

Also they have coupon codes if you search around.

Its a 3 year warranty from the date of purchase. Amazon's 1 year warranty does not cover accidents, square trade does IF you purchase ADH within 30 days of purchase.

I checked this out and when I tried to get a quote from the menu, Readers, or ebook Readers are not an option. So, I chose "other electronics." which lead me to another sub menu. I had to choose 'other electronics' again. Which once more, gave me yet another menu. But now I only have two choices, telephone or music keyboard."

Can you explain how you actually received a quote and then purchased this warranty? Thanks.

I haven't bought a warranty. I was just posting that for another person. If you are interested, you might try calling the number. The site didn't make much sense to me, either.........
