Talk about bringing a fresh and innovative twist to the state of things, King Price, SA’s most innovative insurer, has confirmed the launch of its bold new cellphone insurance offering: Bling. And they’re doing so by shaking up the marketplace with keen pricing and a choice of cover options. This will be music to the ears of, well, anyone and everyone who owns a smartphone.
Bling features 3 options, mainly:
- Brand-new: As the name suggests, your phone will be replaced with a brand-new phone following theft, loss, accidental damage or water damage. If possible, it’ll be repaired following accidental damage or water damage.
- Like-new: Your phone will be repaired or replaced following theft, loss, accidental damage or water damage with a similar make and model or a similar, refurbished phone. You also get a 12-month warranty. King Price says this option is on average 20 – 30% cheaper than insuring for a brand new replacement.
- Screen-fix: This option covers the cost of repairing cracks to your phone’s screen due to accidental damage, or replacing the screen where necessary.
It doesn’t end there, seeking to help drive uptake, the company has launched a ‘blingsiders’ programme, which allows people to earn a referral fee for referring friends and family who’re interested in bling cover. How cool is that?
Van Vuuren says that becoming a blingsider is an ideal way for students to supplement their allowances or bursaries, and it’s also a small way that the insurer is furthering its #MakingADifference goals by helping to create employment in SA.
