Ever needed extra protection and assurance for your beloved notebook computer? Say no more. If you’re an Asus user, or plan to be in the near future, they’ve got just the thing for you. It’s called Asus Premium Care (APC), and what it is, is basically an extra year of premium after-sales services for any customer who owns and uses any eligible Asus consumer, business, or gaming laptop. It extends the standard 2-year warranty by one year and is usable in many different countries, so you can get service even if you’re outside the country where your laptop was originally sold. The only thing is, it will cost you an extra Php 3,499 per year. But for the peace of mind and security that it will undoubtedly bring, some people might view that as a small price to pay.

ASUS Philippines Announces ASUS Premium Care (APC) warranty extension package

Consumers can now avail ASUS Premium Care International Warranty Extension for their newly availed ASUS Laptop

Manila, Philippines, January 24, 2019 — Laptop computers have become a necessity due to its convenience for everyday users—be it for work or play. However, owning one takes a lot of investment, both financially and emotionally, and sudden and unexpected issues can not only disrupt work, but also bear undue stress because of the inconvenience of going through repairs and uncertain warranties.

With the constant aim of improving its user’s experiences, ASUS goes one step further to offer the excellent after-sales service to its end-users. Enter the ASUS Premium Care (APC) program, a warranty extension and service upgrade package available to end-users who have purchased their devices within the last 90 days.

For a cost of PHP 3,499.00, APC is a perfect tool for end-users to extend the longevity of their devices, allowing them to upgrade their existing device warranty from the standard two-year global warranty to a country’s first, industry-leading three-year GLOBAL warranty recognized in over 50 countries worldwide. Comparable three-year warranty packages from competing products only cover local warranty at a cost of up to PHP 6,300.00.

Select ASUS and Republic of Gamers (ROG) users also have the option to extend their two-year global warranty to a three-year warranty, or change their warranty to a two-year local on-site warranty (exclusive to users from Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, and Metro Davao only)

ELIGIBILITY AND APC PACKAGES

All ASUS laptops are eligible for the additional 1-year APC warranty extension package, with a few select models eligible for an optional change to the on-site warranty upgrade.


To avail of the APC package, end-users first need to check if their device is qualified and matches the product indicated in the APC package they want to avail. For on-site warranty eligibility, end-users should check if their area is covered by ASUS Authorized Service Providers (ASPs) via bit.ly/apc-onsitecoverage.

Upon confirmation of their eligibility, end-users must register for an account at http://account.asus.com, and register their product to tie it into their account. Afterwards, end-users may proceed to the Service Package Activation tab on the website and input their APC package details.

In addition to accessing their warranty status on the website, end-users can also check service center locations, as well as status of their warranty and repairs via the MyASUS mobile app. A 22-day turn-around time commitment ensures that their service requests are as smooth and convenient as possible.

ASUS Premium Care packages are available exclusively in ASUS and ROG Concept Stores nationwide. Click the link to find out more: https://www.asus.com/microsite/ph/ASUSPremiumCare/
