Geek Squad ups the stakes in screen shield protection with ClearPlex®

BURNABY, BC, Aug. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - Geek Squad, North America's top task force dedicated to solving the world's technology challenges, is pleased to announce its new partnership with ClearPlex® Corporation, makers of invisible protection films for windshields and electronics. Through this partnership, Geek Squad can offer ClearPlex's invisible touch screen protection for virtually any laptop, tablet or phone. Geek Squad's ClearPlex installation service is available today across all Best Buy Canada and Future Shop stores.

"Nine out of 10 clients who bring in a cracked screen on a laptop, tablet or smartphone to Geek Squad for repair state they wish they'd invested in some form of protection," said Chris Sallans, Director of Geek Squad Canada. "Now they can see clearer with the benefits of screen protection through our new-formed partnership with ClearPlex. Clients can protect just about any of their electronics with ClearPlex, which takes our Agents minutes to professionally install and it lasts the device's lifetime."

ClearPlex is the trusted, patented technology used on racecar, police, military and stunt car windshields for ultimate protection.  It is also the only approved screen protection for International Space Station electronics. ClearPlex machines are available at all Geek Squad Precincts located in both Best Buy and Future Shop stores across Canada.

Two types of screens will be available for installation through Geek Squad:

ClearPlex HD – device screen protection only and best for flat surfaces, complete with scratch-resistant coating.

ClearPlex Ultra – device screen and body protection and good for curved and flat surfaces; includes self-healing technology.

Both come backed with a warranty for the life of a client's device, with in-store replacement.

Pricing is based on size of the screen's device and includes professional Geek Squad installation:

  • Small (3"-6"), $29.99
  • Medium (7"-8"), $39.99
  • Large (9"-11"), $44.99
