A friend of mine purchased a phone on contract with an amex gold. She then dropped it and cracked the screen will amex purchase protection cover this? will they require the phone top be sent to them?

Whatever she actually disbursed for the phone up to $300 IIRC (unless it's a Plat IIRC).

YMMV.

Do you still get amex plat loss/theft  protection on something bought  if you cancel the plat but have other cards?

Not sure about your specific question, but regarding extended warranty you will
I just want to make sure having that card will extend my warranty if I cancel my gold card (ie item i puirchased on gold card) Thanks.
It will extend your warranty items.
Even on items purchased with a different AMEX card?
I thought that once the card is canceled, all extended warranties go by the wayside as well.
You thought wrong.  Any active AMEX with warranty coverage is good enough.

1) you'd have to be talking about within 90 days of the purchase.
2) Why not make the claim? TWTCSIN.

Made some purchases at Crate & Barrel on an SPG Amex and when I was moving, the movers thought it was junk and threw it out. Is there any protection from AMEX for that? The purchases were made 2 weeks ago

Any argument to say they "stole" the items?

I don't want to commit insurance fraud.

Basically, the contractor told them to throw out anything left in the house not knowing that there were some stuff in the closets still

Maybe you misunderstood me, but I wasn't suggesting you commit insurance fraud  ???

I was asking if you can make a good faith argument that they were stolen. If you cannot, you cannot.

Any difference in buying a laptop with a PRG,SPG,or plat in regards to extended warranty and purchase protection?
