    Anyone had experience with square trade warranty's from Amazon...?

    Did argos not offer anything to you? Sometimes the stores own warranty is not a bad option, because they can sometimes swap the item on the same day.

    they quoted me £25 for my 550D I did not go into much more as I just was inquiring to see if they did offer warranties from a individual rather than at a shop / store so i don't know what they charge for 3 or 5 yrs

    Yeah...I am looking to Insure my 550D against accidental damages...but the website you said looks un-professional...If you are insuring a product for less than 10% price of the product I would be suspicious...

    It wasn't me who said about unprofessional . . its the same company who are advertising on TV and they have a good website and a free phone number as well as a on-line chat service. (read the feed back from customers) No I have not my covered my camera yet, as I have one year retailers cover. I just phoned them to ask if they did offer cover and they said yes, saying £25 I ( think there will be a reduction if you take it for more) they may even offer a monthly payment plan ( most do)
    If you are looking for accidental damage ask you home insurance who may add it you your house cover as a "All Risk Cover" ask both companies what cover they will offer ? mechanical / electrical or Accidental damage cover or both
    I will get around to contacting them again as I am in the process of selling my 400D & 450D . . so maybe next week
