Claiming HP Extended Warranty—A Step-By-Step Guide

For those familiar with consumer technology, Hewlett-Packard (HP) needs no introduction. The Silicon Valley-based company is best known for its laptops and printers. It also makes:

  • Desktop computers
  • Business PCs
  • Workstations
  • Ink and toner cartridges
  • Monitors
  • Docking stations
  • Mice and keyboards

HP Warranty Extension—What’s Included

HP products come with a manufacturer warranty, ranging from 90 days to a lifetime. Most laptop warranties offer coverage from one to three years, depending on the model.

Customers can also purchase additional coverage plans, called Care Packs, for their laptops, desktop PCs, and printers. These plans can be :

  • In-warranty—carrying additional coverage for the period during the factory warranty
  • Post-warranty—coming into force after the factory warranty expires

Take a look at the table for an in-depth overview.

Warranty PlanDurationWhat It Covers
In-warranty coverageTwo or three years
  • Money-back guarantee if the service is unused
  • Accidental Damage Protection
  • Absolute Theft Protection software (but not theft)
Post-warranty coverageOne yearSame as the factory warranty

Go to HP’s website to research available options for your device or visit the online store to browse through available plans. Be aware that you can purchase post-warranty coverage up to 90 days before and within 30 days after your factory warranty expires!
