SquareTrade’s Protection Plans

In December 2016, a class-action lawsuit was filed against SquareTrade for allegedly deceptively marketing Protection Plans for electronics and appliances through Amazon.com. Among other things, the complaint alleges that SquareTrade deceptively offers broad protection coverage on Amazon.com product pages without adequately disclosing that the Terms and Conditions of the coverage (which consumers do not have access to before purchase) restrict and contradict the representations on the product pages. The complaint also alleges that SquareTrade sells Protections Plans for products that are not eligible for the coverage (because they were not purchased on Amazon.com) without adequately informing consumers that Protection Plans only apply to products purchased through Amazon. (Starke et al v. SquareTrade, Inc., Case No. 16-cv-7036, E. D. NY.)
