Newegg and AIG’s Service Net Expand Extended Service Plan Offering
Repair and replacement plans offered for products purchased at any retailer
NEW YORK -- December 18, 2012
Service Net, an AIG company, announced that it has expanded its relationship
with Newegg Inc., the leading electronics-focused e-retailer in the United
States, to offer extended service plans to Newegg customers who purchase
products from other retail or e-tail stores. Previously, Newegg offered
Service Net’s extended service plans only to customers who purchased products
directly from Newegg.
Service Net extended service plans give customers a quick and easy way to
replace or repair damaged products. Newegg customers can search for available
extended service plans by providing basic information such as the product
type, price and purchase date. Competitive quotes on Service Net’s extended
service plans are then offered to the customer to select from and purchase.
“Newegg is committed to providing the best online shopping experience possible
for our customers,” said Merle McIntosh, senior vice president of product
management at Newegg North America. “Service Net’s new extended service plans
provide additional value for our customers by giving them the option to
purchase the protection they need for their electronics, regardless of where
they were purchased.”
Service Net’s extended service plans include repair and accidental damage
plans, along with replacement coverage plans for all electronic purchases,
including TVs, mobile devices, personal computers, PC components and home
appliances. Coverage begins from the date of product purchase for all plans
with the exception of refurbished or major appliance products. For these types
of products, coverage begins after the manufacturer’s warranty ends.
“Newegg is a very customer centric organization, and we’re pleased that
they’ve chosen our warranty products and service solutions to extend the value
proposition they offer to their customers,” said Jim Mostofi, president of the
U.S. Warranty Division of AIG.
