How does an Asurion protection plan differ from a manufacturers warranty?
Unlike a manufacturer’s warranty, which is included with the purchase price of a product, protection plans are sold at a separate price. Manufacturer’s warranties are limited in the types of breakdowns they cover, as well as in their duration. In fact, some manufacturer’s warranties are as short as 90 days. Protection plans typically pick up once a manufacturer’s warranty expires, but some plans also offer benefits during the manufacturer’s warranty period, as well. And for portable electronics, such as tablets and laptops, many protection plans include coverage for Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH), such as drops, spills and cracked screens, which occur during the normal use of the product beginning on the date of purchase. That’s protection that manufacturers don’t offer! Here is a breakdown of the basic differences between reputable protection plans and manufacturers’ warranties:
|Benefits||Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty||Reputable Extended Service Plan|
|Length of coverage, parts||90 days to 2 yrs;may differ from labor(split*)||1-5 years for parts + labor: no split|
|Length of coverage,labor||90 days to 2 yrs; may differ from parts (split)||2-5 years for labor +parts; no split|
|Customer service||Limited Business hours Mon-Fri 8 am to 5 pm Closed Sat + Sun||24/7 online support and assistance over the phone during extended hours (sometimes 24/7)|
|Defects in materials; workmanship||YES||YES|
|Failures due to normal wear and tear||NO||YES|
|Failures from a power surge||NO||YES|
|Failures due to from dust, heat and humidity||NO||YES|
|Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH)||NO||Varies|
|No Lemon Policy||Varies||Varies|
|*Manufacturer’s warranties are often split – providing one term of coverage for parts and a different term of coverage for labor.|
