THINKING ABOU T BUYING a TV or computer at Costco for Christmas? Consider adding an extended warranty plan that will protect

Costco has made it easy and affordable to
protect your valuable TV and computer
through extended ExcellencePlus+ warranty
programs, now available for TVs, PCs, laptops and tablets. Here’s a look.
For televisions. Through the ExcellencePlus+ plan, your television is covered for a
total of five years. The first two years of protection are provided by the manufacturer or
Costco Concierge Services—right out the
door. ExcellencePlus+ adds three years to that
You can purchase a plan up to 90 days after
buying the TV, and plans are based on the TV’s
price. The cost is $29.99 for TVs that cost less
than $500, $59.99 for TVs between $500 and
$999.99, and $99.99 for TVs $1,000 or more.
The plan features in-home service on
select televisions, no deductibles, 24/7 mem-
ber support and coverage of parts and labour
for any repairs.
For computers and tablets. The
ExcellencePlus+ plan offers three years of
coverage to protect computers—laptop or
desktop—and tablets. This means day-one
protection against drops, spills and cracked
screens (excluding desktops).
As with the TV coverage, the plan
includes no deductibles, 24/7 member support, and parts and labour for any repairs. It
also offers coverage for accidental damage
from handling (excluding desktops).
The cost is $69.99 for products that cost
