What is this benefit?
Warranty Manager Service provides you with valuable features to help manage, use and even extend the warranties of eligible items purchased with your Visa Signature card and/or with rewards points earned on your covered account. You can access these features with a simple toll-free call. Services include Warranty Registration and Extended Warranty Protection.

Warranty Registration Details
Why should I use Warranty Registration to register my purchases?
You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your purchases’ warranty information is registered and on file. Although Warranty Registration is not required for Extended Warranty Protection benefits, you are encouraged to take advantage of this valuable service. When arranging for a repair or replacement, instead of searching for critical documents, you can just pick up the phone and call the Benefit Administrator.
How do I register my purchases?
To register an eligible purchase call 1-800-397-9010, or call collect outside the U.S. at 303-967-1093. The Benefit Administrator will provide the address to which you can send in the item’s sales receipt and warranty information so this key information can be kept on file for you.
Extended Protection Details
How does Extended Warranty Protection work?
Extended Warranty Protection doubles the time period of the original manufacturer’s written U.S. repair warranty up to one (1) additional year on eligible warranties of three (3) years or less for items purchased entirely with your eligible Visa Signature card and/or with rewards points earned on your covered account.This benefit is limited to no more than the original price of the purchased item (as shown on your Visa Signature card receipt), less shipping and handling fees, up to a maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) per claim and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder.
What about purchases made outside of the U.S.?
Purchases made outside of the U.S. are covered as long as you purchased the item entirely with your eligible Visa Signature card and the eligible item has a valid original manufacturer’s written U.S. repair warranty of three (3) years or less, store-purchased dealer warranty, or assembler warranty.
What types of purchases are not covered?
- Boats, automobiles, aircraft, and any other motorized vehicles and their motors, equipment, or accessories, including trailers and other items that can be towed by or attached to any motorized vehicle
- Any costs other than those specifically covered under the terms of the original manufacturer’s written U.S. repair warranty, as supplied by the original manufacturer, or other eligible warranty
- Items purchased for resale, professional, or commercial use
- Real estate and items which are intended to become part of real estate including, but not limited to, items that are hard-wired or hard-plumbed, garage doors, garage door openers, and ceiling fans
- Rented or leased items or items purchased on an installment plan and for which the entire purchase price was not paid in full at the time of the occurrence
- Computer software
- Medical equipment
- Used or pre-owned items
Should I keep copies of receipts or any other records?
Not if you’ve already registered your purchase. If you have not registered your purchase, however, you should keep copies of your Visa Signature card receipt, your store receipt, the original manufacturer’s written U.S. warranty, and any other applicable warranty in the event that you need to file a claim, as these documents will be required to verify your claim.
Filing an Extended Warranty Protection Claim
How do I file a claim?
Call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800-397-9010, or call collect outside the U.S. at 303-967-1093 immediately after the failure of a covered item. Please Note: If you do not notify the Benefit Administrator within sixty (60) days after the product failure, your claim may be denied.
The Benefit Administrator will ask you for some preliminary claim information, direct you to the appropriate repair facility, and send you the appropriate claim form.
Gift recipients of eligible items are also covered by the claim process. However, a gift recipient must provide all the documents necessary to fully substantiate the claim.

What documents do I need to submit with my claim?
Complete and sign the claim form sent to you by the Benefit Administrator and submit it within ninety (90) days of the product failure along with the following documents:
- Your Visa Signature card receipt
- The itemized store receipt
- A copy of the original manufacturer’s written U.S. warranty and any other applicable warranty
- A description and serial number of the item, and any other documentation deemed necessary to substantiate your claim (this includes bills and, if necessary, a copy of the maintenance record and receipts)
- The original repair order
Please Note: All claims must be fully substantiated.
How will I be reimbursed?
If you have substantiated your claim and met the terms and conditions of the benefit, the item will be replaced or repaired at the Benefit Administrator’s discretion, but for no more than the original purchase price of the covered item as recorded on your Visa Signature card receipt, less shipping and handling fees, up to a maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) per claim, and a maximum of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder.
Under normal circumstances, reimbursement will take place within five (5) business days of receipt and approval of all required documents.
What about repairs?
Extended Warranty Protection will pay the repair facility directly, or you may go to an authorized repair facility and file a claim for reimbursement. Only valid and reasonable repairs made at the manufacturer’s authorized repair facility are covered.
In either case, the Benefit Administrator’s payment, replacement, or repair made in good faith will fulfill the obligation under the benefit.
Do I have to file with my insurance company?
No. However, if you have purchased or received a service contract or Extended Warranty, Extended Warranty Protection is supplemental to, and excess of, that coverage.
