If you missed out on the opportunity to enroll your newly purchased Verizon phone in some sort of protection plan through Asurion, now is your chance to sign-up. Big Red and Asurion are currently hosting an open enrollment for protection plans that runs from now until December 2.
You’ll be able to choose from all of Verizon’s protection offerings like the newly introduced Total Mobile Protection (TMP) or a basic extended warranty. TMP will cost you $10 a month, but is the “most comprehensive” as it includes replacement, support, and security services. From there, you could drop to $8 per month and choose Total Equipment Coverage (TEC), $5.18 per month for Wireless Phone Protection (WPP), or $3 per month for an extended warranty.
We see open enrollments like this happen quite often, typically around the beginning of each year. That’s not to say that this won’t be your only chance to sign-up for a protection plan for the foreseeable future, we just wouldn’t be surprised to see this happen again in a few months. But if you need protection and missed your initial opportunity shortly after purchasing your new phone, now is the time to think about signing up.
Also, Verizon’s site shows a date range that isn’t correct at the link below. Once you click “Enroll Now,” you’ll be taken to an enrollment page with correct dates. We have also verified with Asurion that they are hosting an open enrollment.
Does everyone pay for a protection plan from Verizon?
