Geek Squad Service Request

  • Allows customer to replace a device under the Geek Squad Protection Plan
  • Supported devices associated with the service are iPads, iPods, and cell phones
  • Customers are required to provide the Geek Squad Protection number

The Geek Squad service request program allows customers to check on a current service request or create a new request.  To create a new request using the Geek Squad service request program the customers will have to provide their name, Geek Squad Protection (GSP) number or the e-mail address used at the time of purchasing the Geek Squad Protection plan.  Those who forgot the email address they used when making the purchase will have to go through a bothersome recovery process (it is best to simply use the GSP number if available).
