I purchased an a6500 from amazon and would like to buy an extended warranty. I cannot buy a geek squad warranty because I did not purchase from best buy, so what are some alternatives? I would need a warranty that would cover drops and spills, accidental damage.

Your home owner's or car insurance company may be able to add a separate policy for this item. Although they don't really specialize in this and it's not as good as Geek Squad, insurance companies want to keep their clients.


This is why I would recommend buying a high priced item from Amazon.


I would also not recommend buying from BestBuy.com However it is a great place to browse items no sold in stores. If you want a to buy an item write down the "SKU#". Then go into a BestBuy and tell a clerk you want an "OMS order". You will pay there in the store and it will be shipped to your home (or other) address for free. Hence it will save you a second trip to the store.


The big advantage here is you can return the item to ANY BB IN THE NATION and they will have to take it back. Buy from Best Buy online and you have to deal with someone online if you have issues. (but you can get Geek Squad protection which is worth the money)


I would also never buy electronics from CostCo, BJ Wholesalers or similar club stores. Why? Because ALL the major manufacturers make poor quality knock offs of their own products just to sell cheap at such stores because they know those customers want cheap NOT quality. They will give the products VERY similar names to confuse the customers.
