Most manufacturers’ warranties only cover one specific item for a set amount of time. The manufacturer’s warranty also usually only covers defects in materials or workmanship. Most don’t cover power surges or breakdowns during normal use.
But with the Electronics Protection Plan by Allstate Protection Plans, you can cover as many eligible items—new and existing—for as long as your plan is active. The plan covers mechanical and electrical failures during normal use, including power surges. No proof of purchase is required, and you don’t need to register your products.
In most cases, homeowner’s and renter’s insurance will cover a loss due to theft, fire, wind or storm damage. The Electronics Protection Plan by Allstate Protection Plans will cover the repair or replacement of your covered items in the event of a mechanical or electrical failure during normal use including power surges.
A service fee is a non-refundable fee that is due before each repair or replacement provided under the plan. You must pay the service fee with a valid debit or credit card before we service or replace your item.
