How does purchase protection work?

Purchase protection allows Greenlight Max and Greenlight Infinity users to be reimbursed for the cost to repair or replace an item that was purchased in full with the Greenlight card if the item is damaged or stolen within 120 days of the date of purchase or delivery of the item (whichever is earlier), up to $100 per item and an aggregate maximum of $1,000 per card per calendar year.

Once signed up for Greenlight Max, your child must log into the Greenlight app for their purchases with their Greenlight card to be covered.
