    Is Square Trade worth it? That is a question that is often asked by eBay users. If you are a new eBay seller trying to build up your reputation, I think it is worthwhile to have the Square Trade seal displayed on your listings as it will give your auctions more credibility. If you are selling high-end products, having the seal will help give buyers more confidence in your products and bid higher. Once you have become an established eBay seller, the need to have the Square Trade seal on your listing diminishes and you can sell your products just as well without it.

    I’ll admit it, I’m not a big fan of . I usually advise people to skip the extended warranties that companies peddle to customers, mainly because they’re pure profit for the company and don’t usually cover the user error issues that tend to occur, especially with mobile gadgets. SquareTrade is different, however. Their warranties are much more affordable, they have accidental damage coverage, and you can buy a warranty for virtually any electronic device – including refurbished products. Plus, there are no deductibles.

Samsung has now responded to Square Trade's video, explaining that its Galaxy S6 Edge should pose no such bending issues. According to the company, keeping the Galaxy S6 Edge in a back pocket against a hard surface would apply an average force of 66 pounds of pressure, and the curved-display smartphone would not bend like the iPhone 6 Plus. Samsung also points out that durability standards are not the same on the front and back of a device, and Square Trade only tested the front of the Galaxy S6 Edge.
