– Walmart Product Protection Plan

Have you ever worried about your new TV or laptop breaking soon after buying it? Or maybe your new phone stopped working properly after a few months? Products can be tricky, and even quality brands sold at major retailers like Walmart sometimes fail early on.

Luckily, Walmart offers their customers some peace of mind with the Walmart Protection Plan. This optional program allows you to add an extra layer of protection in case your product stops working or gets damaged.

In this guide, we’ll explore how it works, who is eligible, and how to sign up. Let’s get started!

What is Covered in the Walmart Protection Plan?

The Walmart Protection Plan covers most new electronic products purchased at Walmart stores or online at This includes things like:

  • Laptops and tablets
  • Home theater systems
  • Gaming systems
  • Cell phones
  • Digital cameras
  • Appliances like vacuums, microwaves, etc.

It protects against:

  • Manufacturing defects after the manufacturer’s warranty expires
  • Normal wear and tear
  • Accidental damage from handling (like drops or spills)
  • Power surges

So if your new TV stops turning on after 13 months or your laptop won’t charge anymore, the Protection Plan would cover repair costs or even replacement if it can’t be fixed. Pretty useful!

Who Qualifies for the Walmart Protection Plan?

To be eligible, you must have purchased the product at a Walmart store, on, or from a Walmart marketplace seller. As long as it’s an eligible electronic product still within the coverage timeframe, you can sign up.
