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.
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.
