    i just ordered a policy from

    and i thought it was a good deal, so i thought i'd share.

    i got $2000 coverage (should be plenty for my macbook pro, iphone, and textbooks -- all that really matters i think)

    for $60 a year with $5 processing fee and NO DEDUCTIBLES.

    the site and policy ( all make it clear that accidental damage is covered, and i even called up and confirmed that if i dropped my iphone, it would be covered.

    am i missing something? it seems like a solid deal for me.

    oh and it also covers theft, which is probably very important for college students.

    yea, i checked it out on and heard lots of positive feedback. one girl packed her laptop on airplane and had it cracked -- got $600 check to get it fixed fast, so seems legit.

    here's the thread i was reading

    I wonder, it sounds great. Almost too good to be true. I hesitate with things like that! Let us know if you ever file a claim and whats it like at that point.

    Hmmm...what kind of proof do they require to show you are a student?

    I'm thinking about getting this, but the policy clearly says it excludes "articles made largely of glass." Do you think they would deny iPhone 4 claims since it is a glass sandwich?

    Just renewed my policy with them after a year, they replaced the bike and iphone 3gs that were stolen in about ~3 wks after faxing in the paperwork. All they asked for is a policy report from campus police.

    did you specify iPhone 4?
    I see it says accidental damage and shows a pic of an iPhone 3G or 3Gs, but it may be different with the iPhone 4.

    I will be *continuing* my education at the end of August so sounds like a great deal!!! :)
