If you have Paypal key you can get that plus any credit card rewards/coverage

Re: NFCU Cash Rewards cellphone insurance to end

Interestingly enough I just got an email a coupe of days ago saying from Wells Fargo/Dillard's saying that I now have cell phone protection up to $600 if I use the card to pay the bill.   I often forget that I still have this card and shocked that it hasn't been closed due to inactivity.

Some of the Amex cards offer it. Off the top of my head, the platinum cards and the Hilton Aspire.

It's still a benefit on the NFCU Flagship although the coverage is only $250 per claim.

Have you called in to NFCU? By chance i called in friday and the csr told me they made the decision to end cell phone coverage on 1/21  in a meeting friday morning  so technically i still have coverage until then. I know flagship is the primo card so maybe that particular card will still have the coverage. Theres only one way to check, call them.

Confirmed it's ending on the Flagship card as well.  ☹️

Re: NFCU Cash Rewards cellphone insurance to end

**bleep**, I guess I'm self insuring my phones again. Looks like I'll be moving my PayPal Key to a different card.  No reason to get 1 UR/dollar when I can have 2 MR/$.

Chase Freedom Flex

 

"Cell Phone Protection

Get up to $800 per claim and $1,000 per year in cell phone protection against covered theft or damage for phones listed on your monthly cell phone bill when you pay it with your eligible credit card. Maximum of 2 claims in a 12 month period with a $50 deductible per claim."

 

ETA: YMMV >> https://www.nerdwallet.com/article/credit-cards/credit-cards-with-cell-phone-insurance


Isn't that gone as well? Chase's website still says the Flex has cell phone coverage, but as I understand it, the insurance is provided through MasterCard (Elite/World Elite), and there are some reports of people calling into MC, giving their card number, and being told no, they no longer provide that. It could be that Chase hasn't gotten the message yet, or that they plan to provide coverage on their own, but it seems really unclear at the moment. I don't know how that applies to the CashRewards, which can be either MC or VISA.

 

Edit: Looks like there's a separate thread on the Flex and cell phone coverage:
