Verizon has had this feature since atleast Dec. 2010 except its offered as an Asurion product but same rules apply just have to have TEC.

and how much is that TEP at Verizon? and does it cover water damage? because sprints does

yes...it does cover liquid damage & it has for years. why wouldn't it? thought that was the point of "total equipment protection"? its $6.99/mo...so again Sprint is a little late for their "setting the new standards".

Sprint is a leader because they find a way to get these options done and do it at or below cost of any other company. This option may have been at Verizon already, will take your word on that, and Sprint doesn't have this service cheaper. But since the basic plans at Sprint are cheaper, you can afford this extra even on a budget.
