Blog / AppleCare vs Bodyguardz
Aug 9, 2016
Few things feel worse than damaging your phone. Whether you saved for months for the newest device or have had the same trusty phone for years, a drop or crack can feel like the end of the world. Fortunately, when it comes to protecting and repairing your device, you are no longer limited to the program offered by the biggest player in town.
To help our customers save time, money, and (hopefully) a few headaches, we’ve developed the BodyGuardz Advantage Program. Because we get a lot of questions from customers about the difference between the Advantage Program and AppleCare, we put together the following blog post with all the answers to your questions.
The Advantage Program is a robust collection of services designed to enhance our customers’ experiences. The program offers a variety of benefits, including:
• Free replacements on screen protectors for the lifetime of your device
• A one-year warranty on cases
• A 30-day money-back guarantee
• A 20% off discount on all BodyGuardz products
• Exclusive offers and special savings
Of all the program’s perks, our favorite is free lifetime replacements. While each of our products works hard to protect your smartphone against drops, scratches, and gouges, but if they do break it means they are taking the hit so your device doesn't have to. We wanted to make sure our customers never have to go without a screen protector, so we designed a program that made it easy and affordable to do just that.
We offer the Advantage Program to all customers at no additional cost. To learn more and become a member, click here.
AppleCare is the proprietary customer care program that exclusively covers Apple products bought at Apple’s online stores, physical stores, or at any authorized retailer. Some of AppleCare’s main features include:
• 90 days of complimentary technical support services
• One year of hardware repair coverage
Apple also offers extended warranties through AppleCare+. Both AppleCare and AppleCare+ plans must be purchased at the time of device purchase.
The key distinctions between these programs might be summed up this way: The BodyGuardz Advantage Program provides financial benefits through the provision of free replacement screen protectors, exclusive discounts, and special offers. AppleCare address technical concerns affecting hardware and software, in addition to customer support services. AppleCare’s financial savings are seen primarily in terms of device repair and replacement.
Both AppleCare and the BodyGuardz Advantage Program have a lot to offer, though they are suited to different kinds of users.
AppleCare might be better for you if you:
• Require Apple product compatibility for multiple devices in your work and personal life
• Think you might need extra help navigating Apple’s interface
• Are prone to frequently and/or severely damaging your phone
While the BodyGuardz Advantage Program extends to all devices sold through BodyGuardz or authorized retailers, only agents authorized by Apple can perform repair services under the device warranty. The Advantage Program does not cover incidental damage to iPhones or tablets, so you would benefit from AppleCare if you anticipate needing hardware repair during the lifetime of your device.
The BodyGuardz Advantage Program might be better for you if you:
• Anticipate having one device for an extended period of time
• Plan on having multiple devices that cater to different aspects of your life (i.e. work, school, personal)
• Require protection against scratches, gouges, and moderate drops
Because the Advantage Program covers devices by different manufacturers, you won’t be restricted to models and accessories produced by a single brand. For example, if you are a college student investing in a tablet, you would likely reap a lot of benefits from the Advantage Program by being able to save money on screen protectors and other accessories.
Furthermore, you might benefit from the Advantage Program if you’re interested in preventing damage to your device. For example, if you’re a parent with multiple devices on your phone plan, you’d benefit from saving money on cases and screen protector replacements over the lifetime of your devices. After all, it’s cheaper to replace a screen protector than it is an entire device.
Ultimately, programs like AppleCare and the Advantage Program aim to enhance customer satisfaction by supporting device longevity and helping you maximize the value of your device. Each program has its benefits, which means you won’t go wrong with either choice.
