Introducing the MacBook Protection Plan

Introducing the MacBook Protection Plan


We know how important peace of mind is when buying a used MacBook. If you’ve already been shopping for a used MacBook online you probably know it usually means forfeiting warranty protection (outside of what’s covered in the manufacturer warranty). While this certainly true when buying a used MacBook from other marketplaces — Swappa is different. 

Protect your MacBook from accidents

We know how important peace of mind is and it’s the reason we now offer a MacBook Protection Plan for most MacBooks sold on our site. This thanks to Swappa’s strict “no junk” policy that requires all items in our marketplace be in complete working condition. This provides us with the opportunity to team up with WarrantyLife to protect your used MacBook from glitches, viruses, hardware failures or yes, even accidents.

Pricing is similar to our Used Phone Protection Plans and varies according to the price of the MacBook you’re looking to protect (up to $2,500). For instance, a $1,000 MacBook would only cost $100 to protect and should something happen down the road, only a small $50 deductible would be needed to get it repaired.

You’ll see the option to purchase a Protection Plan after clicking the “buy” button on when buying MacBooks under $2,500, which happens to be the vast majority of MacBooks sold in our marketplace. Just tick the box and you’re good to go.

It’s worth noting that Protection Plans can only be added at the time of purchase, so it might be best to err on the side of caution. Should you change your mind after picking up a Protection Plan, don’t worry — you have a full 30 days to get a hassle-free refund.  

When disaster strikes

Making a claim is only a button click away, with the option to speak to someone over the phone should you prefer making a call. Oh, and free two-way shipping is always provided for all repairs. Here’s everything that’s covered in the MacBook Protection Plan:

  • Cracked glass and screen repair
  • Water damage from drops or spills
  • Power surge protection
  • 1-year coverage starts on the day of purchase
  • Mechanical failure covered after 90 days
  • Pays for replacement or repair up to value of the device

Protection Plan or not, Swappa is always the best place to find cheap MacBooks at deep discounts. With so many configurations, you’re sure to find something to fit your budget. To get started, simply hit the link below to and browse our entire inventory. Happy shopping!
