Students will be facing a new reality soon as summer comes quickly to an end. That’s right, September is just around the corner, which means it’s time to make sure you’ve got enough school supplies for a year full of learning and fun. These days, those supplies usually include things like a laptop, external hard drive, and inkjet printer—all things that don’t play nice with rain, backpacks, and small lockers.

That’s why back to school time is a perfect time to consider a Geek Squad Home Membership or Geek Squad Protection Plan. If you or your kids are heading back to school with a bunch of new tech, keep it here’s how to keep it protected with Geek Squad.

Geek Squad Protection with Accidental Damage

Let’s face it, accidents happen and when they do, they can be expensive. Not just in dollars, but also time (especially when you have a paper due tomorrow and your laptop just decided to stop cooperating).

Geek Squad Protection with Accidental Damage is a comprehensive laptop protection service that covers you against accidents and even spills. When the unthinkable happens, you just visit a local Best Buy store and our Agents will get you back up and running. You can also get help 24/7 online as well.

  • Loaner coverage: If your laptop needs to be sent in for repair, we’ll offer you a loaner so you’re not stuck without a computer
