MSI has taken note of the COVID-19 outbreak and is softening the blow for PC hardware enthusiasts by offering a global two-month warranty extension on some of its products.
“MSI remains committed to our mission of putting our customers first,” the company said. “In light of the health concerns surrounding coronavirus across the globe, we want to ensure that our valued customers don’t have to worry about anything other than their health and safety.”
Unfortunately, laptop and graphics card products are not included in this warranty extension. It only applies to desktop PCs, motherboards, AIO computers, PC cabinets and cases, and monitors. Users also have to meet the following eligibility conditions.
- You’re enrolled in the MSI Rewards Program.
- Your products’ warranties are due to lapse/expire within March 2020.
- You reside in one of the following 20 countries/regions most affected by COVID-19 (confirmed cases and deaths by country, as of 10th March 2020, data source: msi.gm/2wMr5AO):
- South Korea, Italy, Germany, France, Japan, Spain, USA, Switzerland, Singapore, UK, Hong Kong, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Australia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Malaysia, Belgium, Canada.
The promotion doesn’t apply to customers in China, either, as they are already part of an independent warranty extension program.
