- Homeowners/Renters Insurance: Most insurance companies provide protection for personal property. Depending on the company and insurance plan, available options may include actual cash value according to the market, replacement cost and other coverage based on the items you would like to insure. This coverage may be different from flood insurance so do your research. Renters Insurance is another easy option and provides flexibility for all ranges of property worth. Start by calling your insurance agent.
- American Express: Using your credit card for purchases made on electronics provides you with Purchase Protection and the option for Extended Warranty Coverage. On a base level, this worldwide coverage allows protection from theft and damage for up to 90 days after a purchase is made with the card for up to $1,000 in costs.
