Switching from
Squaretrade to AKKO

As you search for an alternative to Squaretrade phone insurance, the multitude of options available may leave you feeling overwhelmed. Most cell phone carriers offer their own device protection plans, often bundled with their services.

However, these carrier-provided plans may not always be the optimal choice. You might wonder, "Shouldn't the plan from my carrier be the best, considering it consolidates all my device expenses?" The truth is, carriers frequently exploit this convenience, charging exorbitant rates for phone insurance while offering limited claim options.

With AKKO, you'll have more freedom in your device insurance than with carrier or third-party plans.

If you're dissatisfied or frustrated with your Squaretrade phone insurance, you're not alone. While Squaretrade does cover phone loss due to theft, accidental damages, and mechanical breakdowns, their protection plans exclude used or refurbished phones.


Moreover, Squaretrade often imposes high deductibles after phone replacement and limits the number of claims you can make in a year to about 3.


Seeking an alternative? We understand! At AKKO, we're not here to push new devices or hit you with hidden fees. Our sole aim is to offer top-notch cell phone protection at an affordable monthly rate, along with unique benefits you won't find elsewhere.

Benefits of AKKO Phone Insurance

Switching from Squaretrade to AKKO gives consumers a number of benefits that can be summed up in one word: Freedom!  You’ll be free to:

Used and Refurbished Devices

Coverage for All Device Conditions

For budget-friendly or environmentally conscious phone owners, purchasing a new device isn't always the objective. Used or refurbished models can perform just as effectively as brand-new phones. AKKO's plan cover all device types, from brand new to both used and refurbished devices.

Number of Claims Allowed

Unlimited Claims Allowed

With AKKO’s unlimited claims, you can file as many phone insurance claims as needed throughout the year. AppleCare+ coverage has a two-claim-per-twelve-month limit (and so do most carrier insurance plans).

Pricing

Flexible Pricing Options

With AKKO, safeguarding your phone could cost you as little as $5 per month. For the same price as AppleCare, you can protect all your electronics, including 1 phone plus up to 25 additional devices. What's more, AKKO offers substantially lower deductibles for theft insurance.
