Purchase Security & Extended Warranty Protection (Maximum lifetime liability of $60,000)

Most items purchased anywhere in the world are automatically insured against theft, loss or damage as long as the full cost of the item is charged to your Scotiabank American Express Card .

Coverage extends for the first 90 days from the date of purchase, is limited to the lesser of the repair cost, replacement cost or original purchase price, and is in excess of any other insurance coverage.

When you charge the full cost of most items to your Card, extended warranty coverage doubles the original manufacturer’s warranty for up to one year. Coverage is limited to the lesser of the repair cost, replacement cost, or original purchase price.

Items covered by a manufacturer’s warranty repair services of five years or more must be registered within the first year of purchase
