What are some tips for shopping at Walmart?

The versatility and range of items available at Walmart may mean that your Walmart shopping list is long and expensive. From computers to food, TVs, furniture, clothing, and car parts, Walmart in store shopping or online shopping can cover most of your daily needs.

But what can you do to shop smarter and be sure that your largest purchases are protected? With warranty coverage for a variety of items, Walmart gives customers the opportunity to protect their items. However, the majority of the time Walmart's warranties fall short of providing comprehensive coverage for an extended period.

Mulberry Unlimited lets you get coverage for all your Walmart purchases under the same product protection plan. You'll have access to unlimited claims and coverage for a low monthly price, without having to worry about any deductibles or hidden fees. It's more far-reaching than Walmart's warranties, and costs less.

What is Walmart's electronics warranty policy?

A Walmart warranty is offered through Allstate, and they include options under the Standard Plan or the Accident Plan.

  • Standard Plans cover mechanical and electrical failure, power surges, or breakdowns during normal use.
  • Accident Plans cover drops and cracked screens, spills, and liquid damage, as well as everything from the standard plan.

To summarize, Standard Plans are only for item failure, and Accident Plans are for unforeseen events from the customer. These plans cover TVs, laptops, phones, tablets, outdoor equipment, general appliances, and jewelry and watches.

Is it worth it to buy the Walmart Care Protection Plan?

Unless you aren't worried about potentially wasting money on large purchases, it's worth purchasing a Walmart Care Protection Plan. Ideally, you would opt for the Accident Plan to cover the bases of any event.

With electronics that are susceptible to simple mistakes like water spills or drops, it's hard to guarantee that your items won’t break in the near future, so paying for accident warranty coverage can save you money in the long run.

Is it worth it to buy an extended warranty for a laptop?

Although not every type of accident is covered (for example, loss, theft, or intentional damage), buying an extended warranty for a laptop is a wise choice. As a significant purchase that you don’t intend to replace multiple times per year, you want to have the security of knowing that if anything happens, you can get a replacement. You may even want to get additional protection that we can offer through Mulberry.

Can I take an item back to Walmart after 4 months?

Whether or not you get an actual refund will depend on the discretion of the manager in the Walmart store location. Typically, the return policy is 90 days, but depending on the item and the circumstances, the manager may choose to grant you a refund.

Mulberry Unlimited provides excellent, comprehensive coverage for all your Walmart purchases under the same product protection plan. You get unlimited claims and coverage, giving you peace of mind while you shop.
