Claim Your Electronics Warranty in a Few Simple Steps

If you are planning to purchase an electronic device, besides looking at specs, you should think about the quality of the device. Think about whether you may need an electronics warranty as well.

Most gadgets come with a manufacturer’s warranty. It covers faults or defects of components or materials.

For an additional level of protection, customers can often opt for an extended warranty on electronic devices. If you want to know how to file an electronics warranty claim, DoNotPay has all the answers!

What Is an Extended Warranty for Electronics?

After the guaranteed warranty period for your manufacturer’s warranty expires, you are left to pay for all the repairs if something happens to your electronic device.

An extended warranty prolongs that period and offers you more comprehensive coverage.

Every extended warranty has different coverage, varies in price, and doesn’t last the same amount of time. That’s why you should shop around even for extended warranties for your electronic devices.

What Is Covered by Electronics Extended Warranties?

The coverage of an electronics warranty will vary between providers. Most companies offer extended warranties on the date of purchase. If you don’t buy the warranty at that time, you will usually have 30 days to change your mind. An additional warranty allows you to replace the device or get a refund.

Most extended warranty providers also offer:

  • Protection of the product after the manufacturer’s warranty expires
  • Replacements
  • In-home service for major appliances
  • Mail-in repairs for small appliances
  • Accidental damage coverage

Always read the terms of your warranty to know what is covered and what the exclusions are. Many contracts don’t offer what you actually need, so your warranty claim might get voided. If you are having problems with claiming your warranty, DoNotPay can assist you in the process!
