What is a product warranty?

This can refer to any type of coverage you get on a product that protects it in the event of malfunction or need for replacement. It is a guarantee that the manufacturer or another third party will take on the burden of repair and replacement costs. Each plan comes with its own coverage term length and set of conditions.

What is product protection?

Product protection usually refers to additional coverage that goes beyond the basic limitations of a manufacturer's warranty. Functioning much like an extended warranty, customers can purchase this additional protection to ensure that their items can receive repairs and replacements even after the standard warranty period is over.

There are all different types of product protection available on the market. Stores like Best Buy and Walmart offer their own plans backed by insurance companies, and other companies like Mulberry offer convenient browser extensions to help you find the best coverage while you shop online.

Accidental damage protection

You should always opt for accidental damage protection because it means that you won’t be liable for repairs and replacements in the event of any unforeseen damage. Whether you have a chaotic house with kids running around or just like to go about your days with a greater sense of security, accidental damage protection is essential.

Life is unpredictable, and if you don’t typically have a few hundred or even thousands of dollars to spare, paying a small fee for extra coverage is truly a small price.

Theft protection

Of course, no one wants to think about dealing with theft, but you never know when it might occur, especially if you live in a vulnerable area or just use different devices in public spaces. Several protection plans might come standard with theft protection, but always make sure before you commit to anything.

You might not need this type of coverage on an oven, because that would be quite difficult to steal, but it’s a great idea to add it to more portable devices like phones, tablets, and even gaming consoles.

Product registration

When you purchase product protection, you need to make sure you complete any type of required registration process to be sure that your coverage gets activated. Failure to do so could result in your item not being covered for anything that you’ve paid for.


It’s easy to glaze over the product warranty fine print when you’re excited about getting your new appliance or device. However, being prepared now means protecting yourself later.

When you subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited, you can have peace of mind knowing you have access to the best value product protection on the market, and at the best price too.
