Asurion provides one-click phone or chat access to tech experts to help solve any technology issues that customers may have with their covered tech device, from setting up a tablet or router, to connecting a streaming device to your TV, to device repair or replacement.

"As we continue to expand Staples' assortment of personal, smart home and home office tech options for our customers, it's only natural that questions come up regarding how to get the devices setup and working together, how to optimize them to work more smoothly, and 'Who do I go to when I need more help?'," said Peter Scala, Staples Chief Merchandising Officer.
