Shopping for a new TV is always fun, especially when there are so many options out there to choose from. Walmart is a popular shopping destination for electronics because of its competitive prices and expansive inventory of products. Before you consider purchasing a new TV from Walmart, however, you might be wondering what type of coverage you can get with a Walmart warranty.

While Walmart offers warranties on their TV's, they often fall short of providing the most complete coverage. This can leave you vulnerable if your TV gets damaged due to an accident, wear and tear, and more. That's where Mulberry Unlimited comes with. When you subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited, you can get coverage for all your major electronics under the same product protection plan. It's market-leading product protection, for just $9.99 a month.

Cover all of your electronic devices under one plan

What you can expect from a Walmart warranty

All televisions sold at Walmart come with a manufacturer’s warranty, but that only protects you for a limited time and under limited circumstances. With a Walmart warranty, you can extend your protection as well as your peace of mind.

If your TV has a mechanical failure through no fault of your own, but it happens more than a year after you purchased the TV, you likely won’t be covered anymore by the manufacturer, which is why additional warranty plans are so important.

Included coverage in the standard plan

The Walmart TV warranty is available through either Allstate or Asurion, depending on the model of the TV you purchase. Anything purchased before 2018 is covered by Asurion, while Allstate is where you’ll get coverage for newer models.

Whether you purchase a Walmart 65-inch TV or a more modest 27-inch model, the terms are the same for any basic Walmart TV warranty. Your coverage includes mechanical and electrical failures from normal use. This includes power surges or electrical supply failure, speaker failure, and breakdowns during normal use.

Unfortunately, any type of accidental or intentional damage is not covered, and neither is theft or loss. So, if someone drops the TV during a move or damages it another way, you won’t be able to submit a Walmart warranty claim successfully.

Add on protection with an accident plan

If you’re already considering warranty coverage, it makes sense to go with an option that’s all-inclusive, so you never have to worry about “what if's.” The Walmart TV warranty with accident protection covers you for drops, cracked screens, liquid damage, and spills.

You can also purchases additional coverage through a third-party provider, such as Mulberry Unlimited. It's important to keep your options open when shopping for product protection, so you can ensure you're getting the best deal.

Determining the best deal

Pricing will depend on the cost of your TV and the length of coverage. Plans are available for 3-5 years of protection, and you can always choose between standard or accident coverage. Although accident protection might be a few dollars more, it’s certainly worth the peace of mind.

Even if you’ve never had to deal with a damaged device in your life, there’s no reason to tempt fate.


It’s all well and good for Walmart to offer customers protection, but considering the limitations, it shouldn’t be your only backup. Many consumers don’t realize that they have the option to choose product protection plans that aren't associated with the store they’re buying from.

Before you go ahead and buy a new Walmart smart TV, subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited to can ensure you're getting the best coverage on the market. You can get protection for all your major electronics under the same plan, for just $9.99 a month.
