HP Care Pack Services

What is a care pack?

  • With HP care pack service plans you can increase the duration of your warranty, expand the coverage, and add extra protection to your HP product.
  • All consumer PCs and printers come with a standard one‐year warranty. Care packs provide an enhanced level of support and/or an extended period of coverage for your HP hardware.
  • All commercial PCs and printers come with either a one‐year or three‐year warranty. You may have the option of selecting your coverage as well during order configuration (on certain products).

How long does coverage last?

Care Packs for Consumer or Home PC and Printers

  • Care pack coverage begins the day of hardware purchase.
    • For example, if a consumer laptop is purchased on April 1, 2022, and a 3 year Care Pack is purchased on July 1, 2022, the Care Pack coverage will start on April 1, 2022 and end on April 1, 2025.

Post Warranty Plans for Consumer or Home PCs and Printers

  • Post Warranty plans provide additional coverage after your base warranty expires. Coverage begins either (1) day after base warranty expires if purchased during base warranty or (2) on purchase date if purchased after base warranty expires.
    You will get the most coverage and value if you purchase a care pack plan at the same time as your PC or printer purchase.

Monitor Coverage Plans for Consumer or Home PCs or Printers

  • For consumer desktop purchases: When a consumer desktop, consumer care pack, and consumer monitor (22" and below) are purchased together on the same order, the monitor is also covered for the length of the care pack.*

Care Packs for Commercial PC's and Printers

  • The Care Pack coverage begins on the start date of the hardware coverage warranty period and ends either upon completion of the specified number of years of service purchased; or for services with page limits or other specified usage limits, it will terminate upon the earlier of:
    • Reaching the specified page or usage limit (or page count) or
    • Completion of the specified number of years of service purchased. Page count is defined as the number of pages (printed or plain) that have passed through a printer's print engine and recorded on the test page.

Post Warranty Plans for Commercial or Business Devices

  • Coverage begins upon the later of:
    • Expiration of the original product warranty
    • Expiration of previous support coverage, or
    • The HP Care Pack purchase date, as applicable, and terminates upon completion of the specified number of years of service purchased.
