This Extra Cover Plan is provided by Officeworks (236-262 East Boundary Road, Bentleigh East, Victoria 3165, 1300 633 423). Officeworks has entered into a separate indemnity agreement with The Warranty Group Australasia Pty Ltd ABN 37 005 004
446 (the “Administrator”) and their group’s insurance company, Virginia Surety Company, Inc ARBN 080 339 957 both of Level 2, 693 Burke Road, Camberwell, VIC 3124.
This Officeworks Extra Cover Plan is not an insurance policy, nor are We insurers. Our Extra Cover Plans are a warranty and service plan supplied by Us in respect of Products We sell. Please ensure that You keep Your original purchase receipt
and/or tax invoice to describe and validate Your purchase of both Your Product and this Officeworks Extra Cover Plan. These documents constitute proof of the purchase of this Officeworks Extra Cover Plan. You may be required to produce these
documents in the event of a claim.
A separate Officeworks Extra Cover Plan must be purchased for each Product You wish to cover. Each Officeworks Extra Cover Plan will be shown directly below the purchased item/s on Your receipt. The code/s and description/s listed on Your purchase
receipt and/or Tax Invoice supplied by the retail store will indicate the term of Your cover.
There are two types of Extra Cover Plan:
A Replacement Cover Plan is only available for a new Product having an Original Purchase Price of $1,000 or less. A Replacement Cover Plan provides a once only replacement of Your Product, or an Officeworks Gift Card, for Mechanical or Electrical
Failure which occurs within the Period of Cover subject to terms, conditions and exclusions of the Extra Cover Plan. All Products of value between $500 and $1000 will need to be assessed by Our Nominated Repairer before a replacement or gift
card is authorised by Us. The Officeworks Gift Card will be valued up to and shall not exceed the Original Purchase Price You paid for Your Product.
Payment to You or replacement of Your Product shall constitute fulfilment of this Extra Cover Plan and will not transfer to a new Product.
A Repair Cover Plan is available for a new Product having an Original Purchase Price of over $1,000 and provides repair for Your Product for Mechanical or Electrical Failure which occurs within the Period of Cover, subject to the terms and conditions
of the Extra Cover Plan.
Parts used for repairs may be new, used or refurbished in accordance to suitability and availability of supply. All parts used will hold a minimum guarantee period regardless of cover period. If Your Product is covered by the Repair Plan and
if Your Product is not economically repairable, We may, at Our sole discretion, choose to replace Your Product with a new, equivalent Product of Our choosing regardless of the original Manufacturer’s policy on replacement. The replacement
Product shall be equivalent in specifications to Your original Product and the cost shall not exceed the Original Purchase Price You paid for Your Product.
Due to changes in technology and availability, the replacement Product We supply including whole product changeover in lieu of repair using the Manufacturer’s existing exchange programs may have a lower selling price and is not limited to the
original manufacturer brand of Your original Product. Replacement price differences, if any, will not be refunded. If a replacement Product is not available, We will provide You with an Officeworks Gift Card not exceeding the Original Purchase
Price of Your Product.
Officeworks Extra Cover Plans do not cover:
You can claim after the expiration of the Manufacturer’s Warranty period, by calling Our Rescue Crew on 1800 465 713, Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm (EST). You must lodge Your claim prior to the expiration of the applicable Extra Cover Plan and
ensure You have Your original purchase receipt and/or tax invoice available. If Your Product is covered by a Replacement Cover Plan and Your claim has been approved, You will need to take Your Product to Your nearest Officeworks store for
collection of Your Officeworks Gift Card and disposal of the faulty product. For goods valued between $500 and $1000, You will need to have an assessment carried out by the Administrator’s Nominated Repairer before a replacement or Officeworks
Gift Card is authorised by Us. Your claim must be lodged by the customer whose name is shown on the purchase receipt and/or tax invoice. Alternative claimants must be authorised by the customer in writing.
