The premium smartphone maker’s OnePlus announced its extended warranty program during the launch event of OnePlus 7T and its first smart television. Under this program, the company offers a one year free extended warranty for new as well as old devices. The program is not limited to the warranty but it also offers many other services and that includes discounted price, and more. So, without let’s dive into the article to check out the program in detail and I will also explain how to get the extended warranty for free of cost.
OnePlus has brought an application called OnePlus Care and that is needed to install on your device to get the free extended warranty. And if you are unaware of the application then you need to know it first.
What’s OnePlus Care
The OnePlus Care is an umbrella to provide various benefits to the users, the app provided insurance as well as accidental damage benefits. But since the launch of the latest OnePlus 7T, the company has announced many new exclusive benefits for the loyal OnePlus users and the company also revamped the application. If you are already using the OnePlus Care application then you are required to update it first and then you will get a free one year extended warranty without any additional charges and that is really awesome. It also offers many benefits such as battery replacement and trade-in plans which will be explained later in this article. Having said that, let’s talk about the free extended warranty first.
How to get free extended warranty and other benefits
As I mentioned above, the company will offer a free extended warranty for old and new smartphones. Well, the offer is applicable to the king of last year – OnePlus 6T, 7, 7 Pro, 7T and any other upcoming OnePlus devices. But the device must be under the original warranty period to get the additional warranty. That said, the OnePlus 6T users need to activate this plan as early as before the warranty expires.
Once you login to the app, you have to diagnose your smartphone and after that, you will see a banner that is dubbed as the “Unlock Exclusive Benefits For This Device”. Tap on it and then again tap on “Activate Now”. The smartphone may ask for the IMEI number (if you have the OnePlus 7T) and then you need to enter the purchase details. After verifying the details, you will receive the free one year warranty plan. Cool isn’t?
Apart from that. OnePlus is also providing a battery replacement plan and that is like a dream come true plan for old users. The company will offer the battery replacement with a discount of 50%: and the OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, 5T and 6 are the ypart of this program. Check out the discounted pricing of the battery replacement program below.
Now there is a twist, if you want to avail the benefit of a discount on battery replacement then you need to book the repair services against the battery damage on the OnePlus Care app, and if you go directly to the service center then you will not receive the discounted price. You can book the service request by tapping on the select a service centre near your location and you need to provide your preferred time slot. That’s all, the engineer of the company will come to your address and do the needful service.
The app also offers Trade-in program and this is specially designed for the OnePlus devices and that will allow you to exchange your current OnePlus smartphone with the latest devices and you will get an amazing price for that. One of the best thing, the plan supports old devices of the company which means you can exchange even the OnePlus One which was unveiled in 2014. You can check out the exchange value below.
Personal speaking, this is just an amazing deal by the company and it’s something like the company is giving back to its community for the love and support. And the new plans will definitely add a feather in the crown of the company.
