Razer Launches RazerCare Essential Protection Plan for Phones and Laptops

Nov 21, 2018

Great news for gamers today. Razer, a brand we love at GWW, have announced they are now offering a protection plan for the Razer Phones and Razer Blade laptops. It appears only new transactions are eligible for the plans. Although, a Razer representative has informed me there is a 30 day grace period.

Razer has an FAQ that answers several questions about the program.

Personally, I’ve spent thousands on Razer’s laptops, as recently as this summer with the Razer Blade 15. I’d love to buy this protection plan but I am outside of the grace period. While I feel the burn, I am also very excited for Razer as this may increase their customer base, which should ultimately be a good thing for all Razer customers. I’ve been a customer of their laptops for 3+ years and I’ve always found their customer support to be very fair and responsive.

Original press release follows.
