Amazon is a mecca for online shopping, so it makes sense to go there for all your home and portable electronics needs, especially with their affordable and convenient delivery options. However, if you’re thinking about investing in a new electronic item, you should also be thinking about product protection.

A product protection plan can help ensure your products are covered in case of accidents, breaks, spills, and other forms of damage. If you're shopping around for plans and don't know where to start, take a look at Mulberry Unlimited. With a Mulberry Unlimited subscription, you can get coverage for all your Amazon electronics and more under the same product protection plan. For just $9.99 a month, you get unlimited coverage, claims, and more, giving you the ultimate peace of mind.

Cover all of your electronic devices under one plan

What types of warranties does Amazon offer on their electronics?

There are a couple of Amazon warranty programs designed to protect your purchases and peace of mind.

Amazon warranty

If you purchase any electronics from the “Amazon Basics” line, you’re entitled to their manufacturing warranty. If you purchase an item from a different brand, you’ll likely be entitled to the manufacturer’s warranty from that company.

The Amazon Basics one-year limited warranty covers your items for a year from the purchase date and protects against any defects or malfunctions due to manufacturing and workmanship. This is probably going to be the same as the manufacturer’s warranty you’ll receive on any other product.

Amazon expert protection plan

The Amazon expert protection plan is for those who want to have smart home coverage that goes beyond the basic limited warranty. With this plan, you’ll get accidental damage coverage, as well as technical support, in-home services, and mechanical failure protection.

Keep in mind, however, that this Amazon warranty plan is only meant for smart home devices.

Amazon warranty plan with Asurion

Protection plans are also available through Asurion for Amazon laptops and other electronics, and you can choose between standard and accident protection plans. The standard plan coverage will go into effect when your manufacturer’s warranty runs out, and essentially provides a continuation of the same coverage.

The cost of your plan will depend on the value of the item you purchased, and the length of coverage, usually up to three years.


Another warranty provider on Amazon is SquareTrade, which offers 1-, 2-, and 3-year plans backed by Allstate. Much like other protection plans, the cost will depend on the value of the item you’re protecting and the duration of coverage.

Third-party considerations

You might take a look at the options on Amazon and not feel satisfied, which is fine! Don’t feel pressured to buy any coverage that you don’t feel good about. The whole point is to put your mind at ease, not cause more uncertainty.

You always have the option to take advantage of other product protection providers like Mulberry, which can provide a range of coverage options at rates that are difficult to beat!


When it comes to Amazon electronics, you’re always going to find a great deal on quality products. Although you might be hesitant to pay an additional fee for product protection when you’re already spending a sizable amount, you’ll thank yourself later when you finally do run into something unexpected and need one of your devices repaired or replaced.

Whether you’re browsing Amazon gaming laptops or bluetooth-compatible shower speakers, don’t forget to subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited so you always know you’re getting the best price for your protection.
