Many people who buy items from stores like Staples or Walmart can also buy a protection plan for their item. SquareTrade promises its plans offer protection to customers if their item gets damaged. Unfortunately, as our SquareTrade Protection Plan lawsuit alleges, many consumers seeking reimbursement for their damaged item have been underpaid by SquareTrade.

SquareTrade Protection Plan Lawsuit Filed

Gibbs Law Group filed a complaint on April 20, 2020, against SquareTrade. As the complaint describes, SquareTrade sells protection plans for products sold at retailers, including Staples, Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Costco. When a consumer purchases a product, like a backpack or a television, the consumer can also purchase a protection plan from SquareTrade, as described in the lawsuit. For a flat fee, as alleged, SquareTrade promises replacement, reimbursement, or repair in the event of damage during a fixed time period.

However, as the complaint describes, SquareTrade does not pay consumers the full amount to which they are entitled when they make a reimbursement claim. Instead, SquareTrade pays out only a portion of the purchase price promised under the protection plan, as alleged.
