If you’ve recently purchased a new iPad from Best Buy, chances are you’re probably looking for a good way to protect it. Whether you purchased a Best Buy refurbished iPad or a brand new, top-of-the-line model, iPads are expensive purchases, and they’re easy to break, too–from their large screens to their thin shape, a drop or fall could result in expensive repairs, or even a replacement.

Although there are several great options to make sure your new iPad is covered, nothing is more comprehensive or affordable than subscribing to Mulberry Unlimited. You'll get coverage for all your electronic devices and more under the same product protection plan, complete with unlimited claims and 24/7 customer support for just $9.99 a month. It's the ultimate peace of mind for anything you could buy online. Curious about additional ways to protect your iPad purchase from Best Buy? Here’s what you need to know:

iPad insurance

iPad insurance, also known as an iPad warranty or AppleCare, is a popular way to protect your iPad purchase. There are two types of iPad insurance. Here’s a look at both:

Standard Apple insurance

Standard Apple insurance is included for free when you purchase any Apple device. Coverage includes 90 days of technical support from Apple experts, as well as a year of basic coverage for manufacturer’s defects and internal hardware issues. Standard Apple insurance does not include coverage for accidental damage, so you’ll be on your own for any repairs or replacements for anything accident-related.

Extended Apple insurance

Extended Apple insurance extends the coverage that standard Apple insurance offers, offering a longer period of time and greater coverage. Extended Apple insurance includes coverage for accidental damage, such as dents, cracked screens, liquid damages, scratches, and more. Extended Apple insurance allows you to file unlimited claims as well; however, it’s important to know that you’ll have to pay a deductible each time.

Best Buy Geek Squad Protection

If you’re looking for an alternative to Apple insurance, Best Buy Geek Squad is another popular option. While choosing to repair your iPad by anyone besides Apple can be a risk, Best Buy is a certified Apple service provider, which means that they are certified by Apple itself to perform any needed repairs.

One undeniable benefit of a Best Buy Geek Squad protection plan is the convenience. There are more than 1,000 Best Buy locations in the United States, which means that if your iPad needs to be serviced, chances are you have a Best Buy location nearby that can help.

Product protection plan

If you’re looking for an alternative to Apple insurance or another warranty, product protection is another helpful option to consider. But what is a product protection plan, exactly?

Product protection plans are similar to extended warranty plans, but with an added degree of versatility. Rather than only purchasing protection for a single item at a time, you can protect almost any of your online purchases, including furniture, appliances, electronics, bikes, fitness equipment, and much more.

Another helpful aspect of product protection plans like Mulberry Unlimited is that they include coverage for accidental damage, unlike standard Apple insurance and most extended warranties. Accidental damage is the most common reason that people need to file a claim, so having this coverage is extremely important. Whether you drop your iPad and crack the screen, spill liquid on it, or accidentally scratch it, the reality is that iPads are extremely breakable, and it’s important to be prepared when accidents happen.

What is the best way to protect your iPad purchase?

When it comes to choosing how to protect your iPad, it really boils down to your personal preference and lifestyle. If you have kids, pets, or are on the go a lot, the likelihood of an accident occurring is much higher than if you live on your own or use your iPad solely at home.

However, if you want to guarantee that you’ll get the most out of your iPad purchase, the coverage and versatility of a product protection plan makes it far more useful than any other protection option your iPad–and luckily, it’s inexpensive too.

When you subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited, you can protect as many purchases as you’d like with no hidden fees, deductibles, or sneaky terms and conditions, all for only $9.99 per month. It's the best way to ensure all your online purchases are covered, no matter what.
