What does their extended warranty cover?

  • Do they cover accidental damage?   No

Most extended warranties cover accidental damage from either the day you buy the product (in the case of most electronics retailers) or short period after the cover has been bought (for most 3rd party extended warranty providers).

  • Do they list a response time?    No

Not all extended warranty providers will list a response time but have published those who do share this information.

  • Do they offer an annual health check?   No

A few extended warranty providers offer an additional premium service to prevent any breakdowns by coming to check the product once per year. It is not very common but some of the most premium covers offer this feature.

  • Do they offer a loan product while yours is getting repaired?   No

Some extended warranty providers will offer a loan product while yours is out of action. It is sometimes provided on some premium laptop and TVs warranties.

  • Do they guarantee a new for old replacement (rather than a reconditioned model)   No

In the terms and conditions of each policy it will specify if they product can not be repaired what they will do. We have only given a provider a tick for this if they explicitly say it will be replaced with a new product and does not mention that it MAY be replaced with a reconditioned product.

  • Do they offer unlimited repairs?   No

We have awarded a tick in this category if they explicitly mention unlimited repairs. This is only worth worrying about if you have an expensive product which keeps having very cheap things go wrong with it. In reality if something keep going wrong and thee repair costs add up to more than the cost of the item then it would be everyone’s interest for the item to be replaced. In this scenario unlimited repairs is not really than important.

The cover for both is always 10% of the purchase price.

Both types of cover have the follow term which I read as they will not replace you with a new product, it may be a product of similar age, specification and condition. In our opinion this says this sounds like they will not only give you a reconditioned product but potentially a product which is not in such good condition.

  • The Company’s liability is limited to the lower of the original purchase price of the product or its current value. (Current value means the cost of replacement of the product immediately prior to the time of failure with an item of similar age, specification and condition.)
