www.squaretrade.com/costco – Access Costco Protection Plan Online

Square Trade Costco

  • Costco shoppers can logon to manage a Square Trade protection agreement they have purchased
  • Registering a Costco Square Trade account allows customers to manage all of their plans from one place and file claims online easily
  • Once a customer has registered, all of their future Costco Square Trade protection plans will be automatically added to their account

When Costco customers purchase an electronic device, they’re usually given the opportunity to purchase Square Trade protection, which provides coverage that goes past what the standard manufacturer’s warranty offers. Square Trade protection from Costco guards against most types of accidental damage or damage done through normal use, but it won’t cover damage that’s deemed “outside of normal use.” To register a Costco Square Trade purchase, customers will need to enter their Costco membership number, their Costco last name, and their e-mail address to make a new Costco Square Trade account (that will then be used for every subsequent Square Trade purchase).

Square Trade Costco Notes

  • Easy to use
  • Members who already have a Costco Square Trade account can just log in and enter their new Square Trade number to activate their new membership
  • If a customer purchased a cellphone protection plan through Costco.com, they will need to check their confirmation e-mail to find out how to activate their warranty coverage

www.norton.com/setup – Enter Product Key Access Code

Norton Set Up

  • The Norton setup site is the easiest way for people who have purchased a Norton product to get it running and to register a Norton product online
  • Customers will need an Internet connected computer and they will need to have their Norton product key to fully register and activate a Norton product
  • If a customer doesn’t already have a Norton account, they will need to set one up because an account is needed to access Norton products and features.

With Norton setup, customers just enter their Norton product key, access their online Norton account, manage a Norton subscription, and even extend a Norton protection subscription to other products like a Mac, PC, iOS or Android device. For customers who purchased a Norton product online from the Norton site or from an authorized retailer, the Norton product key will be in the confirmation e-mail they received. Norton key codes can only be used one time, and it’s recommended they not be transferred from one customer to another. Customers who purchased a physical Norton product in a retail store will find their Norton product key inside the box either on a scratch card (with a silver box) or on a sticker on the back of the CD sleeve.
