What types of warranties does Costco offer on electronics?

Costco storefront

Costco is a hugely popular discount warehouse that offers a variety of products to customers, ranging from fresh produce to high-end home entertainment systems. It’s a one-stop shopping experience that helps you save money on all the things you need to make your home feel complete.

However, just because you’re shopping in a discount warehouse doesn’t mean you’re always getting the best deal. When it comes to product protection, there’s a lot of fine print involved, so it’s important that you take the time to fully understand what you’re getting. To help you make the most of your purchases, we’re getting into the details of the warranties available to shoppers at Costco.

And when you're shopping around for product protection, be sure to subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited. With unlimited coverage and claims without any deductibles or hidden fees, it's one of the most comprehensive protection plans on the market.

Cover all of your electronic devices under one plan

Costco electronics warranty basics

As a Costco member, you are entitled to extended warranty protection on most electronic and appliance purchases for up to two years from the purchase date. Any coverage through this protection is handled through the Costco concierge service.

For more comprehensive coverage, customers also have the option to purchase additional extended warranty protection through Allstate. Sometimes it’s useful to get both forms of protection to maximize your coverage, depending on the product.

For example, if you purchased a television, you are entitled to the Costco TV warranty for up to two years. If you get the additional Allstate protection, you can get an extra 3 years of coverage, so your TV will be protected for a total of five years.

Also, keep in mind that the Costco return policy for TV purchases requires that customers perform returns within 90 days of receiving the product. So, make sure you have the coverage you need before that window closes.

Costco concierge services

The purpose of Costco concierge services is to help customers manage their appliances and electronics purchases. If you ever have questions about your warranty, like how much time is left on your coverage, or if you just have some questions about troubleshooting Costco laptops, you can log in to your member dashboard and access their concierge resources at any time.

Exclusions to the Costco electronics warranty

Before you go ahead and decide to omit any other form of product protection, keep some of the following exclusions in mind.

The basic Costco electronics warranty will not cover:

  • Any kind of physical and/or liquid damage.
  • Touchscreen tablet devices are not automatically included in this coverage, so you need to purchase additional protection for that.

Allstate protection from Costco

If you want to avoid exclusions, you might want to consider the added product protection provided by Allstate. For example, if you’re a student or work from home, depending on just a Costco laptop warranty could leave you without access to important work before a deadline if your laptop becomes damaged due to an accident.

In this instance, it would cost you $99.99 for three years of protection for new computers valued at $500 or more.

Price-conscious product protection

At the end of the day, if you’re shopping at Costco, you’re already looking for a deal, so you might as well double down with product protection. However, you can’t always guarantee Costco is offering the best coverage.

When you subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited, you get product protection coverage for all your online purchases under the same plan, giving you the ultimate peace of mind.
