Home Electronics Warranty Plans

Electronics Protection Plan

We gather around our televisions for movie nights, use our smart home products to automate daily tasks, rely on our tablets for on-the-go convenience, and save important documents to our laptops and desktop computers. Without these items, many of us would be lost! Based on the number of electronics you have in your home and your household's needs, an Electronics Protection Plan* may make sense for you to consider. The Electronics Protection Plan provides coverage for failures due to normal use, power surge protection, and defects in workmanship and materials. The Electronics Protection Plan can be added to the ShieldSilver, ShieldGold, and ShieldPlatinum plans.

$2,000 coverage per claim with an overall claim limit of $5,000.
Must add electronics protection to your existing home warranty within first 60 days of your membership.
