AAFES News Release
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — Buying big-ticket items like electronics, jewelry or appliances is an investment. Soldiers and their families at the Grafenwoehr Army & Air Force Exchange Service can protect their investments with Exchange Protection Plans, powered by Asurion.
Protection plans guard against common factors that can damage or destroy items, such as accidental damage from handling; breakdowns due to heat, dust and humidity; power surges; and wear and tear. Shoppers can add protection plans to their purchases of TVs, gaming consoles, computers, electronic accessories, jewelry and watches, appliances, lawn and garden items, sunglasses, and more for as little as 2 percent of the price of the protected item.
Grafenweohr Exchange shoppers also have the option of adding AppleCare+ protection to their Mac computer, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch and other Apple purchases. The plans can cover screen damage, theft, batteries and more.
“Exchange Protection Plans and AppleCare are two great ways to protect purchases,” said Exchange marketing manager Chris Litch. “Military shoppers can make the smart move by preparing for the unexpected.”
The Exchange recently expanded protection plans for TVs starting at $200 to include a four-year option. Previously, TVs priced $200-$499.99 only had three-year plans available.
The Exchange Protection Plans come in varying lengths, from one-year to lifetime warranties. Shoppers can easily add an Exchange Protection Plan or AppleCare+ to eligible purchases by speaking with an associate at checkout or by adding to online purchases when prompted at ShopMyExchange.com.
