Why you need an extended warranty for electronics

As consumers, we purchase a lot of electronics and they range from inexpensive items to big-ticket investments that we intended to use for years to come. When your electronics purchase requires a bit of an investment, it's natural to spend time researching and price-shopping to ensure you get the best value and the best product.

Extended warranties for electronics are no different. When you're making a big purchase, you'll want to protect your investment with the most comprehensive coverage at the lowest price. When you shop with the Mulberry extension, it's very easy to compare extended warranty plans, term lengths and prices.

What is an extended warranty?

If you're not familiar with extended warranties, they are extremely common and are available for all types of products. The purpose is to provide you with additional product protection that extends beyond the manufacturer’s warranty that came with your purchase. Most electronics products will come with a basic manufacturer’s warranty, but it offers limited coverage for a short time period.

This is why you'll want to consider an extended protection plan for electronics. Most of the time when you make a large purchase, you’ll be given the option to add a protection plan—that’s an extended warranty. You've probably seen warranty plan offers from the retailer or manufacturer websites while you're checking out, but they're typically expensive or they offer limited coverage. The cost alone may have stopped you from considering the addition of an extended warranty to your purchase.

MulberryCare is different. MulberryCare extended warranties for electronics offer comprehensive coverage, including accidental damage. Accidental damage coverage for your electronics is crucial, especially since the manufacturer's warranty will not cover accidental damage.

Instead of being limited to basic repair and replacements after your purchase, get an extended warranty for your electronics. You can use your electronics with a little less worry, knowing that you’ll be covered against damages for as long as you choose.

Why is an extended warranty important for electronics?

Depending on your household, you rely on some items more than others which might be at greater risk for damage. Think about the electronics in your house that you wouldn't want to go without on a daily basis - those are the ones you want to protect with an extended warranty. Electronics are one of the top product categories that Mulberry customers protect with extended warranties.

For example, if you work from home, you depend on things like your laptop, monitor, phone, and any other devices you need to get your work done. This is even more important if you work for yourself and are responsible for all your own equipment (re: you can't ask your employer to replace your laptop when it dies).

Maybe the most important electronic devices in your household aren't related to work at all. If you have children, you might depend on certain electronics for their educational purposes or just simple entertainment. To keep your household running smoothly and keep the young ones happy, you can protect your purchases and rest assured that the most you’ll be responsible for is just filing a claim. And with MulberryCare, you'll never pay any deductibles or fees if you do need to file a claim. The process to file a warranty claim is simple, quick and handled entirely online. Install the Mulberry extension and get alerts when the products you're shopping for are eligible for MulberryCare.

Choosing the right electronic protection plan

MulberryCare provides electronics insurance coverage for all of life’s unexpected accidents, as well as mechanical and electrical failures. You can verify product eligibility in seconds with the Mulberry browser extension. Once installed, simply browse online as you normally would and let the product protections find you, making your purchase decisions easier than ever.

At the end of the day, life is about making things easier and reducing stress whenever possible. Chances are you have too much going on to be worried about (or even notice)  inconveniences like replacing a broken laptop in time for your teenager’s big final exam studying session or repairing the family Go-Pro just days before your vacation. It might feel over the top to protect smaller items, but you’ll thank yourself for it later when you have that aha moment of oh, I've got MulberryCare for this!
